Wing Haven on Wednesday, 7/30, at 10 AM! All artists are welcome. If parking spaces are full just park along the street. Cost is just $5 (half the normal entry fee) which benefits the upkeep and staff at this historical residence. The garden is full of shade and color. Enjoy it again or join us this time if you missed it.

The last outing here was well attended and appreciated by the Wing Haven staff. They received lots of positive feedback from the watercolor class teacher of youngsters that painted with us. So proud of our group!

Due to rain forecasts, the buds will not meet this week. Next week, we will meet on Wednesday (NOT TUESDAY) July 30th at Wing Haven. Caroline Mayberry has reduced the charge to $5. We can paint from 10 AM to until 2 PM. Bring lunch, water, bug spray, chair, etc... There's plenty of shade. ALL artists are welcome. Join us!

Oh and Bob gave us a 15% discount on any purchases too. I took advantage of the deal. Love my birdcage with the air plant inside.

Thank you for looking, Carol! I just looked back too and I want to go back to some of those places again, like the Mint Hill Village.

Thanks for the pics, Scott. And thanks for joining us!

We had a great crowd with Nanette, Meg, Carol B, Beth Peggy, Kathy Coates, Kathy Collins, Carol P, Luchi, Suzanne and Mary. Did I get everyone? Loved Wing Haven with all the color and shade.
