Last week we shared a trip that we made to the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley where we saw two wonderful exhibits.  You can see the Steinlen Cats here.  Today it’s about Tiffany.  This beautiful exhibit will be there until September 1st and it is worth the trip to get over to Winchester to see it.  Here is just a few of the glass masterpieces.

We just spent three days and two night at the beautiful Shenandoah River State Park in Warren County, Virginia for a Stitch and Bitch Retreat. We all brought projects that we were working on and stitched and chatted and ate and drank and hiked and laughed and even learned to play Mahjong! What a terrific time. It is so much fun being with women with like hobbies who are willing to cut loose and share in a good time. AWESOME!

We will be holding another one soon so watch for dates and since space is very limited go ahead and start thinking about how much fun you will have now so that when the dates are posted you can jump right in. 🙂

We made a visit to Magnolia Plantation and Gardens on the Ashley yesterday.  What a beautiful place even in the overcast day.

I can’t imagine how beautiful it must be in  the bright sunshine.

It would be worth a visit during the spring.  So many old oaks and tons of camellias blooming.  Lovely!

Flagler College


We made a stop by Flagler College yesterday…formerly Hotel Ponce de Leon.  The college is named for Henry Morrison Flagler, a Gilded Age industrialist, railroad pioneer and entrepreneur who partnered with John D. Rockefeller to found the Standard Oil Company.  In 1888, Flagler built the Hotel Ponce de León, his first in a series of luxury resorts along Florida’s east coast. A masterpiece of Spanish Renaissance architecture and the first major poured-in-place concrete building in the United States is now known as Ponce de Leon Hall. A National Historic Landmark, it serves as the centerpiece for Flagler College.

Once again, you can find art everywhere you go. Yesterday I was at The World Golf Hall of Fame in St Augustine, Florida, and yes, there was art!  Every class that is inducted features a painting with the inductees.  This is the first one…the class of 1974.  The art was really nice.

Each painting is displayed in a gallery that lead to another display of bronze plaques of each inductee. 20181227_181051.jpgThe museum was well done with lots of interactive displays.

Well done.
