The Main Street Women of Warren County panel discussion will spotlight the importance of women-owned and operated business in our community and also highlight the unique accomplishments and challenges faced by our local women business leaders.
Panelists include Jean Plauger, Owner Jean’s Jewelers, Kerry Barnhart, Owner of Vibe Properties & Front Royal Brewing Company and Kelly Walker, owner of The Studio-A Place for Learning.

On the recent trip to North Carolina we saw many, many barns with lovely Barn Quilts gracing them.  I love the look of a  pop of color attached above the door or to the side of a barn or shed.  They are wonderful pieces of Folk Art.  I think we should make some soon for our barns and sheds.  Start thinking about where you can put yours.

Yesterday was such a wonderful day at Belle Grove.  I started out with a group painting a little wildflower painting.  They were delightful and we had such a nice time.

 

Then it was back over in the afternoon for the “Meet the Artists” reception at the mansion.  This year Belle Grove offered the art of Wayne Laws, Sally Veach and me (Kelly Walker)!  It was so fun to see art in the mansion.  It is still going on until close today so if you are over Middletown way you have to stop in and see it.
