Around here lately the studio is getting gussied up


A friend spend five days over Thanksgiving with us and we relaxed and stitched and she went home with her doll.


The sunsets have been dramatic


And the Superhero helped our contractor put in the new front door right before Thanksgiving


Which was a very good thing because on Thanksgiving our back yard looked like this…


Slowly unpacking and organizing, and unpacking some more, but we managed some walks to the river beach and ate lobstah and did a bit of fun gallery hopping in old downtown Portsmouth, NH.  What’s been doing round you all lately?


  1. What a great way to spend Thanksgiving – creating with a friend! Good thing that door went in before the snow! BTW- studio just keeps getting better and better!

  2. It’s all shaping up to be a fabulous home. Here we are heating up….off for a swim.

  3. Lovely photos of the new homestead and surrounding areas, Corrie! Glad you spend some time with a friend to help break in your up-and-coming studio!! Both front door and Super Hero look great! Big Thanksgiving dinner here in Lynn, now just enjoying this unanticipated Springlike weather! Christmas hugs to you both!

    Oh,wow! Love the backyard full of snow!
    Only in my dreams here in FL….

  5. Your art always makes me smile and I love the vignette or shelfie as some might call it. Superhero looks like he could have installed the door by himself. And that is one AWESOME door, too.

    Dramatic views, including the snow from your home are stunning. Sounds like you and your company had a lovely Thanksgiving.

  6. It’s all coming together beautifully. What a great time with a good friend. Back yard is gorgeous.

  7. I love the art work in the first photo, looks great. Your friend looks very friendly, love her bracelets. Nice door, looks like it will keep the weather out very well. Freezing here too but no snow.

  8. Fabulous front door woman! Rain rain RAIN is whats been going on around here!!!!! And more expected. Woohoo!!! Hugs! deb

  9. Wow – looks like do much fun! Your new digs are wonderful – love all the trees in your back yard

  10. It’s coming along nicely! Glad you had a fun time over Thanksgiving with your friend! Hugs, Valerie

  11. Oh boy you were so lucky to get that beautiful new solid wood door in before all that snow fell.
    The studio, the sunset and the snow scene all look so beautiful so far how can you not be more than grateful for it all! Your Thanksgiving could not have been better sharing with special friend and your Superhero! Happy unpacking and setting things up!

  16. We had snow here too a couple days after Thanksgiving – and I DO NOT like the snow, no I don’t! Luckily it was just a little and melted off the streets pretty quickly. Glad you’re settling in the new place. Around here I just finished up emptying all my Christmas bins and distributing all that holiday cheer all over the house! Whew!

  17. What a gorgeous door! Beautiful.. and such fabulous snow.. we have just ice here and so many of the trees broke because of the ice loads! horrible…
    I so love your new studio!
    You did have fun with your artsy friend… fantastic!
