Judge Stone House/Settling in opening.
Spent a festive evening at the Judge Stone house, an 1846 brick home just south of the courthouse in Noblesville. The newly rehabbed building is finished as well as the Stephenson house next door Artist's studios were open and the works of forty-five artists were on display and for sale. This particular event will run through the end of January. My handmade rustic willow furniture is displayed in the front two rooms. Carolers dressed in the garb of the 1840's singing Christmas carols made for a very nice setting for an art opening. The train was running from Fishers to Tipton and it was a very nostalgic sight to see the train passing directly in front of the house. Christmas lights were all over and the tree I made was adorned with lots of pears and a partridge. Spent some time with some of the other artists and I came out with third place in the judging, not bad given the competition. It appears that the Judge Stone House will become a destination for art and there will be many more successful events to come. Kudos to Aili and Paige for all their hard work. It has paid off.
