It was lovely to meet your family, and most especially your daughter. We were impressed by her interest in books and hope she will enjoy the limericks about my fish. May "Baby Blue" cheer you all every day on your wall.

This sunny beautiful spot has something for everyone. The artists are friendly and willing to talk about their work and "your" work if you too are an artist. Affordable, whimsical and beautiful wood work. A place to stop for sure.
