Yesterday my friend Joy and I decided that we could squeeze in an impromptu trip to Pamela Dalton’s Christmas Open House. So we piled into the car and ventured north to the village of Harlemville. The drive flew by as we talked and admired all of the small towns we passed through!
We had a wonderful time looking at all of the amazing fine crafts that Pamela and her group of friends created. Then surprise!!! Who was there? My friend Peggy!!!
Peggy is a talented, creative doll maker, who lives in a charming old house by the sea. She has an enchanting blog that I love to read.
The afternoon came to a close with strolling carolers. It was a story book ending to a lovely Open House! Afterwards, Peggy and her dear friend Sandy invited us back to Sandy’s house for supper. It was so nice to finally meet Sandy in person! Peggy has told me so much about her and Pam had told me last month that she had a friend (Sandy) who loved dolls and that she was sure would like to meet me. Sandy is every bit as nice, creative, and charming as they both told me she is. 🙂 She is also another old house owner and the creative force behind Sandy Connors’ Honey Bee Press – old fashioned wood engraving and printing.
Sandy was the perfect hostess, welcoming us into her home, introducing us to her sweet pets, feeding us and showing us through her lovely c. 1830’s home.
Naturally I was quite delighted to make the acquaintance of the doll family that lives in Sandy’s home.
What an unexpected delight and a welcome interlude in the midst of a busy holiday season!!!
Today I had the fun of reliving yesterdays adventure, when I unpacked the treasures that I purchased at the Open House.
