Open Studio Nov. 18th

Everyone is invited to come to my studio in Falmouth, MA (Cape Cod) on Sunday,  November 18th, from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. Every few years, I like to open my studio to the public when there’s something special to show, usually when a big project is complete. That way people in my area can get a preview before my work is delivered elsewhere. I’m almost finished making decorations for a tree based on my book Pocketful of Posies, which will be included in Family Trees: A Celebration of Children’s Literature at the Concord Museum, Concord, MA. Several friends have asked if they can see the tree before I bring it to Concord, so I spontaneously decided to invite the world over, too. The picture above was taken a week ago and I’ve made more decorations since then, so by the 18th, the tree will be full of dolls and strung with garlands made of thread spools!

Oh, my, what have I done? This means I have a week to finish the tree and clean up the studio! Not too much fixing up, though–it will still look like a busy work place. Birds of Beebe Woods will be in the studio, too, before it is delivered to the Plymouth Antiquarian Society’s Hedge House Museum for their Fairy Christmas celebration. By the way, the Pocketful of Posies traveling exhibit will be there next summer.

  1. Oh my goodness…this is amazing, as usual. I wish we were closer although as my husband just said, “It’s doable” since we are just five hours away. I hope you have great weather and a large crowd, and maybe even I will be there! Thanks again for sharing your one-of-a-kind creations.

  2. I só would love to visit your studio ….. but I’ll have to be satisfied with the little photo – glimpses you share here on your blog (….and I’m glad you do, like all the other ones who live too FAR away !)
    All the tiny figures are so adorable and refined in detail !

  3. Where’s my winning lottery ticket when I need it ! Have a Fantastic Showing Salley. I hope the line to see your studio goes around the block..
    GOD Bless,
    Rebecca

  4. What utter delights are pictured here Salley.Your tree is sooo Magical.There is something about making and seeing little dolls that takes us back to that wonderful child state that all too often gets lost in later life. Have a fabulous “Open Studio”.
