Save the date, people!  We’re gearing up for a fabulous Holiday Open House at Mud Dauber on Saturday, December 5th from 10-6!  Even if you made it to our PACKED Studio Tour/Open House on November 7th and 8th, we’ll have lots of new stuff for you to see and buy.  Great stocking stuffers and gifts in all price ranges, including some stunning new framed very painterly prints of roosters and bears by  Marion Rose in wild colors.  You’ve just got to see them.  I’ve also got some of Catherine Twomey’s (former Earlysville resident and painter, now moved to California) newest paintings as cards.  One I like best is of a cow skull, but she’s also got one of Grace Vineyards that’s ethereal, and a new version of the red barn on Bleak House Road.  I’ve restocked tea towels, and have some really cool new butterfly and dragonfly magnets, and oriental/modern throw pillows.  NOT TO MENTION the most wonderful pottery on earth.  Plus, I’ll serve wine, coffee, cider and cookies, play funky French-y music (unless you request holiday music), AND I’ll be introducing the new Mud Dauber and E-Ville bumper stickers!  Bring three friends, buy something, anything, and YOU WILL GET A FREE MAGNET! Hope to see you, and three or four of your friends here on the 5th!  (And I realize that that’s one of the busiest Saturdays before the Holidays, but try to squeeze in a visit to support your local pot dealer!)
