My show with Vivian’s Antiques and Collectibles in Columbiana,
Ohio, was more fun! It was absolutely wonderful to see old friends
after fifteen years of being away and a thrill to meet so many new,
young friends. It really was an incredible show. My congratulations
to Linda Seidner and Sally Case for their thoughtful planning and organizing
and to the fantastic volunteers of the Essence of Moss Chapter of the
P. Buckley Moss Society!
Hats off to Linda, Sally, and their staff and volunteers!

The Essence of Moss Chapter sponsored a one-day raffle
to benefit the learning disability class of the Columbiana School System.
They sold tickets at the show for a framed print of The
Bridge and the Mill and raised $400! The lucky winner
was Barbara Moore of Columbiana, who was also celebrating her 34th wedding
I must say I had quite an interesting trip to the show. My plan
was to fly to Pittsburgh from Richmond early Friday and arrive late
morning. I was going to have the whole day to spend with my brother
Dan Buckley and my sister-in-law Carol; but, due to a mechanical problem
with the airplane, I sat in the Richmond Airport for six hours listening
to everybody fuss! When I finally arrived in Pittsburgh, it was
such a relief to see my brother’s smiling face. Boy!
Was I ever glad to see him! It was so nice to see Dan and Carol’s
new house and get to spend some time with them. They drove me
over to Columbiana for Vivian’s show, too. After being with
them for two days, though, I realized how much my own house needs organizing.
I think I need to borrow Carol for a while.
On the way home, I couldn’t resist stopping at my favorite antique
shop in Mathews, Annie Rooney’s. After all, it was on my
The show at Vivian’s put me in a shopping mood, and I couldn’t
resist stopping at Annie Rooney’s to do some browsing. Pictured
with me is storeowner Annie Wortham.
When I got home, I received a very warm greeting by my
daughter Patty’s dogs Nellie and Jackie. They were so glad
to see me they nearly knocked me down! They’re my walking
buddies when I’m in Mathews.
Here I am on the porch swing with my buddies Jackie (beside me)
and Nellie (in my lap).
I’ll be setting off again on Thursday, when I go
to Waynesville, Ohio, for a show with Canada Goose Gallery. I’ll
be with my old friends Laura DeRamus and Kathy Heims September 28-29.
We’ll release my new print The Old Clifton Gas Station,
which depicts the 1940’s Gas Station Museum located next door
to the historic Clifton Mill in Clifton, Ohio.
The Old Clifton Gas Station will be released during my show with
Canada Goose Gallery September 28-29. For more information, contact
the gallery at 513-897-4348.
In addition to the show, there will be a fundraising
dinner and auction for the Greene County, Ohio, Court Appointed Special
Advocate Association (CASA). The mission of the national organization,
together with its state and local members, is to support and promote
court-appointed volunteer advocacy for abused and neglected children
so that they can thrive in safe, permanent homes. CASA was started
The dinner is going to be loads of fun, with silent and live auctions.
Hand-made fairy angel dolls will be at each table and will sell for
$100 each. When a person buys a doll, he or she will receive a
number, which will be used in a raffle drawing for one of my framed
miniature watercolors! I’m looking forward to supporting
CASA with an evening of fun with friends.
’Til next week…
