The YART (Yard plus Art)

Wanna Come?
I'm serious!
The New England change of seasons
and leaves in October is a wonder of the world.
But even better is friends and artists
sharing and chatting away.
I can think of no greater thrill
then hanging out with the likes of you.
(are you serious??? email me and i'll fill you in)


  1. Oh! How I wish. How I WISH!!

  2. If wishes were horses we'd all take a ride!!

    Love this card,,your little cottage is perect for a yart gathering! Will it sleep many people?

  3. Oh, this will be a fantastic event, I'm sure. Sorry to miss it and envious of those who get to take part, but I'll be there in spirit!!

  4. I'll be there with bells on!!!!!!

    I think it will be a wonderful day filled with laughter, good food, good drinks and great friends, new and old. I'm looking forward to it!

    I know I'll bring my notecards but I'm still not sure what else to do. And I know you want people to watch me paint.

    But I'm so shy! :P

    We'll see. But I'm glad I'm going and making it a nice getaway for me and Bri.



  5. I've never been to a Yart. How I wish I could this time. I'd love to see lolo paint her superb art. And there'll be so many others it would be great to meet. There is always next year, never knows what life will bring.

  6. Save my room! I still haven't given up hope that I will be working by then and come help be your Sou-Chef and Set-Up Girl!
