My life involves a lot of pinkies in high places.  Not to brag or anything, but my current living situation affords me many a smug smile of pleasure as I casually lounge on my wrought iron balcony and/or wave to Ashley Judd’s father (he’s kind of my next door neighbor; we’re...

Construction Paper: Get hands-on with the Art of the Book tomorrow at Locust Gro
Ready to bond over book-making? Sign up and try out a number of book and paper making sessions tomorrow, Saturday, June 23rd, at Historic Locust Grove.
