Well, here’s the place! Wooden Horse Arts Guild Sponsor, ARTISTS’ MEDIUMS at Taft Farms Village Center Plaza
If you are a blacksmith or a student of blacksmithing, you can practice your skills at Hammer-ins at the Old Stone House on the 2nd Saturdays of each month. An instructor is always on hand for guidance. Bring $10.00 to chip in for the open forge for coal and materials and don’t forget your lunch.
The next Hammer-in is on Saturday, Feb. 22 from 10 to 2 p.m. This coincides with the “I Love Winter Festival”, a free family friendly event with craft demonstrations, snowflake making for kids, refreshments inside the Twilight House AND cross country ski trails packed around the museum ground.
Don’t miss this very fun event!
If you have “had enough” and want to chase away the Winter Blues, paint with Wooden Horse Arts Guild member, Mary Alice Brenner, at the 99 Gallery in Newport on Tuesdays from 2 to 4 p.m. call 802-323-9013

Wooden Horse Arts Guild Member, Jim Maas (Bird Carver, Spectacular), was the special guest speaker at the Four Seasons Garden Club meeting recently. Members learned about how this talented ex-doctor became an award-winning bird carver. His display of birds, both in process and finished, was spectacular. Jim is multi-talented and showed, for the first time, his newest talent, PAINTING! This acylic on canvas painting of “The Marsh” will be on Jim’s page at www.woodenhorsearts.com . This is a beautiful, nostalgic painting of the marsh and the wildlife who visit it. Don’t forget about his personal website: www.birdsinwood.comhttp://blog.woodenhorsearts.com
This You Tube was sent to me this morning by a dear friend. http://www.youtube.com/embed/VhiF-PD4E_c
Listen to Sissel, the international singing sensation from Norway, sing Auld Lang Syne in this stunningly beautiful video. She is widely regarded as one of the finest and most talented sopranos in the world. This is a magnificent rendition with beautiful images.
Auld Lang Syne (partially written by Robert Burns in 1700) was first published in 1796.
Treasure the music, the words and the images. Tomorrow is 12th Night. In our family we exchange one small gift with each other and enjoy the last of the Christmas breads and cookies while the tree is taken down – AND – wish each other HAPPY NEW YEAR!http://blog.woodenhorsearts.com
“A New Year always promises a fresh start and fills every heart with hopes and aspirations. It is the same with me and I hope with you! I wish for each of you a year of fulfillment, and wonderful moments to cherish and store in your heart! I pray you find happiness in each day of the New Year. I pray you find peace and joy in your memories of all the good times you share with family and others. God bless you all throughout this year of 2014.” Don’t forget to make some art, draw, sing, take some great pictures, build, read some good books, and share your abilities. Happy New Year from this Blogger, Camilla.
A part of the above was written by my sister, Heidi, who writes Little USA trips. Heidi and Bill have begun their year of 2014 with their second “Snow Bird” trip. If you would like to travel along with them, you can visit her page at http://littleusatrips.org/
