The annual parade and arrival of Santa took place today on Main Street in the Village of Stone Mountain, Georgia. I arrived early in hopes of finding some early Christmas presents. Here’s what I found:
Tracie Lee Hawkins is a painter and fiber artist. She creates fine art inspired by nature and historical events using oil, watercolor, acrylic paints, and textiles. The first thing I saw when I entered Center Town Gallery was this painting that she allowed me to photograph. What bold colors! You can contact Tracie through her website.
Drawing taped on the store window.
After I finishing reading it I saw a girl standing next to the window.
I turned to her and said, “Did you see this? I think this is great.”
She replied, “Yes, I’m the one who made it.”
“What’s your name,” I asked. ~”Meadow” ~”Oh, what a lovely name. I like it.”~
An Old Zenith Radio, Teddy Bear, Child’s Wagon, and A Book.
A Party Dress
Things have changed since I was a kid, He now has his own red cart pulled by a red truck.
