At this moment in America and most likely everywhere else, we’re experiencing the joys and for some, the monotony of home more than any other time in history. This season our culture has given us a renewed interest in and an awareness of our surroundings, inside and out, along with isolated moments that capture our imaginations and creativity. At the same time, we are thrilled at the chance to visit with others safely as an escape and to renew our spirits. As the holiday season approaches, we realize we will be making merry differently. From the Summer’s Garden invites you to our safe and merry holiday sale, The 12 Days of Christmas…Shinin’ So Bright. This year these will come in three weekends separated by private appointment days for those who choose to shop that way. Come join us for a holiday shopping escape outside in the garden and inside the studio discovering handmade gifts for you and the people you love.

Feed your backyard birds in style this winter with a Baxley-textured hanging bird feeder. You might choose to get a head start on spring with one of Lynn's new rusty-roofed bird houses. Either of these would make a great gift for your gardening friends or family member.
Lisa Freeman studied Graphic Design and Marketing at KSU and worked 20+ years as a free-lance graphic designer. With those years in her past, Lisa now enjoys working in a wide variety of mediums including fiber, wire, metal, and beads of all kinds. Finding inspiration from “the wisdom of those around me”, Lisa creates pieces that hold a presence of spirituality and peace in the spaces where her works hang.
Bemby Yocum has worked as a graphic designer and illustrator for years and that is uniquely reflected in the design of her pieces. She uses wood, wire, beads, and her original printed art to create her pieces for the sale. Her husband, who patiently cuts her designs out of wood, helped her create a new contemporary Holy family with a shepherd and sheep. A coordinating angel is available for purchase to display alone or with the set. Bemby’s unique style, whether as an ornament, greeting card, wooden nativity or a decorative piece, will be sure to add a touch of color, fun and a little whimsy to your holiday décor!

Patty Casalou, of Casalou Creations, is pulling out all the stops for our “Shinin’ So Bright” holiday sale. In addition to her “Farm to Jewelry” line, featuring locally grown botanicals, she has created a variety of giftable items for everyone on your list!
Rita's summer was busy, that is so true!
There were so many new arts
that she wanted to do.
Casting stone and then painting
were two of those things.
Silk dying, some baking
and making glass bling.
Making new masks was also a task,
wearing them for awhile now-
she was sure it would last.
So come for the art,
and the holiday spirit you'll get.
But it's her fudge and nut brittle
that you must not forget!
Leanne from South20studios
has new totems and flowers
inspired by nature. These are
sure to add some fun and color
to your winter garden.

Natalie Thomas, pottery artist and owner of Blue Mountain Pottery, has been throwing pottery for almost 20 years. It brings her so much joy and she hopes you can see it in her pieces for this year’s
Shine so Bright sale.
Nothing says the holidays more that a warm cup of cocoa. Natalie has thrown beautifully glazed mugs with very unique handles. They make the perfect gift!
One of the most popular Scandinavian mythological characters is the Tomte ( also called a Nisse or Nisser). Staying with her Scandinavian heritage Natalie loves creating these whimsical little creatures with their red caps and long beards.
Birch trees and cute little red birds are Natalie’s design choice for her wheel thrown and hand built serving dishes, ornaments and wall art. The pieces are painted with colored slip and dipped in a clear glaze. All her dishes are dishwasher and microwave safe.
The Corner Candleshop celebrated their re-branding with a ribbon cutting ibn Brookside. We celebrate Lori Woods and her fine candle shop which has been a feature in Brookside for 17 years. Lori makes the candles for our various themed sales and she has a great line-up in the works for Shining' So Bright opening November 5 and running through November 22.
Laurie has been harvesting and drying tomatoes and horseradish all through the summer for our dried tomato dip mix which is a feature of our sales as long as the fresh supply lasts!
