What a terrific weekend! It was cold but sunny for our Christmas gallery show and Barn Open House. The Barn looked beautiful, and our big Christmas tree was gorgeously decked out with all the ornaments made by the students of Waynesboro’s Wenonah Elementary School. The children were so excited to see their creations on our big tree when they came for the tree lighting ceremony Saturday morning.
