A fun creative project engaged Lew and me the last ten days of 2019—special archived dolls from forty some years ago to the present with a short poem for each month in a color calendar called Attic Angels. Erika is Miss February, and in 1986 I sold nine of her. Here’s...

Grace and Suzy were at the Whiting Library for two months, occupying the same basket, teasing, touching and talking, mostly about their family back home in the stone house gallery. When they got to meet the children in the After-School program and to be puppets for the...
