I'm hoping you all had a nice Thanksgiving feast or whatever you might celebrate at this time!
The art show and the craft fair I participate in are over now. I made a modest amount selling my art pieces and greeting cards and my "WOMEN of NOTEbooks." Women of Note--I chose Eleanor Roosevelt, Annette Kellerman, Sojourner Truth, Madame Sherri, and a couple of Queens of the World.

And then there's Madame Sherri. With a background in Paris and NY theater, Madame Sherri built a castle in Chesterfield, VT in 1931. She and her friends lived a life of parties and scandal. Her castle burned to the ground in 1962 leaving the ruins, including an arched stone staircase in Madame Sherri’s Forest. It appears to be haunted with the remnants of music and party sounds.

Have a great week!
