Weekend Update + An Art Show

It was a quiet weekend around Hickory Heights, mainly because I wanted to spend some time with Connor to see if I could discern what’s been bothering him. Naturally, he was a little lamb all weekend and as good as gold. 3-27 003

I’ve been invited to an art show, Art for Land’s Sake, next weekend to benefit one of the most special places around – the Green Spring Valley and The Valleys Planning Council.  The Green Spring Valley is a mostly undeveloped area just 20 minutes north of downtown Baltimore. In order to maintain and preserve the nature of this area, the VPC was formed. The art show will raise funds to support the VPC. picture3 This year’s show will be held at Halcyon Farm, a 122 acre horse farm owned by Stiles T. Colwill, a well-known interior designer and chairman of the board of the Baltimore Museum of Art, as well as the proprietor of Halcyon House Antiques, one of my favourite places!11-13 064 Dozens of artists will be participating, including one of my favourites, Meg Page, whose work is incredible. melon For more information on the Art for Land’s Sake, please click here.

I hope your weekend was much more exciting than mine!


  1. I walked 5k in the local American Heart Association fund raiser. It was through a hilly section of town for NC FLA. Also, scored a Napier gold tone choker necklace at an estate sale. Then we visited an art festival and bought a french salt cellar/shaker-- hand made bit of pottery. You Tube has a video as to how they are made. looks "easy" if you have clay, tools, an electric potters wheel, glazes and a Kiln. That little angel of yours needs to know You are the top dog and he needs his limits--perhaps it is truly reassuring to him.

  2. Would love to attend! This sounds fabulous!
    I posted about the antique show in Omaha... I just love art shows, antique shows... all that inspiration in one place is heaven!

  3. He truly wants and needs your time and attention and a dose of what the first commentor said. The two of you will work it out...since the move it is ALL still NEW to him. The art show sounds wonderful!

  4. Connor is such a cute dog, I am sure he was a little lamb, he had you around all weekend to play and entertain and just be with him. Maybe he is lonely?

    This art show looks fabulous! I cannot wait to see your photos and what you purchase.

  5. Connor's a love. All is well. Mary
