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.

Here is a snapshot  of Jim Maas speaking to the Four Seasons Garden Club.  It was a terrific meeting!  Learned a lot about bird carving and how Jim began with this wonderful ART!

And, What Next?

By camilla @ 9:16 am

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 . This is a beautiful, nostalgic painting of the marsh and the  wildlife who visit it.  Don’t forget about his personal website:

This is our world. Treasure it.

By camilla @ 9:24 am

This You Tube was sent to me this morning by a dear friend.

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!


Happy New Year!

By camilla @ 3:04 pm


“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
