Life is lived in a circle and dates keep coming back to us. The joy of brightening other's lives, bearing each other's burdens and supplanting weary hearts with thoughtful gifts becomes for us, the magic of the holidays. 

These are our newest message blocks which stand on their own on a shelf or ledge, hang on a wall or fence or can lay flat in the ground as a ste[ppoping stone. Speaking of stepping stones, here are three new designs for the season. These are easy gifts for gardeners on your list.
We're HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS. Come to our opening night garden party, Thursday, November 2 from 4-8 pm. Enjoy good eats, live music and free craft activities in our studio, two floors filled with cool handmade gifts and home decor. We'll be open 10-5 every Friday, Saturday and Sunday through November into December.

Winter is artist Bemby Yocum’s favorite season! She loves using natural elements in many of her designs. You will see evidence of this in the form of candleholders or perches for many of her whimsical wooden birds. Bemby’s fun graphic trees are available in sets of three and with a set of her charming woodland animals and you will have a unique winter scape to enjoy all through the season. Her birdhouses are decorated for indoor winter décor but can transition to the outside for the real birds in the spring!

Wool is an amazing natural material with unique capabilities. One of these features, is the ability for wool to be pierced repeatedly with a barbed needle allowing the artist to sculpt shapes from the wool. This is called needle-felting. Join artist Robin Mackintosh as she demonstrates basic needle felting techniques. She will show you how you can make your own cute chubby little birdies.

Lisa Freeman has been as busy as her husband’s bees. 
Her “bee keeper” hubby experienced another bountiful honey harvest. FTSG will have plenty of honey available as well as hand-made moisturizing creams and lip balm made from the 2018 bee’s wax harvest. You'll have to checkout her new Jalapeño honey- sure to wake up your toast in the morning!

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle? Lisa’s theme for the last several months has been digging through her piles of fabrics, metal, wire and beads. Rediscovering these treasured supplies feeds her creative side resulting on charming message pillows, sachets, and fabulous fiber creations. 

Each of these items and many more await you at Home for the Holidays, From the Summer's Garden's Holiday Studio Sale opening Thursday, November 2 and every weekend in November into December.
