In April of last year I won a house at auction. It is almost a hundred years old and the last owner had been in poor health. The inspector said it was in pretty good shape considering. But it looked bad and needed a lot of work. Richard was discouraged and even I had a moment of panic after I made my bid. I had only enough money for one bid and it was followed by complete silence. What had I done?
For the last year Richard, Randy Judge and his friends, Randy’s mother and myself have transformed the house into the perfect studio and guesthouse. I am across from the library, near a coffee shop and the post office. I have lots of light and lots of room. I love it.
From 5 to 7 on Saturday, May 7th,
we are having an open house
to celebrate our first year.
If you live near by, come see our progress,
my new paintings and a few old paintings.
Look for the yellow house across from the library parking lot.
This is the house where Dinah Shore was born.
It has a plaque in front put there by the city.
That week end is the International Dogwood festival.
Come see the work that has been done
on the restoration of our historic down town.
I hope you can join us, Anne
