I found this old postcard of downtown Gloucester at a flea market in New Hampshire recently. I thought you would be interested. It is great that Gloucester still has so many of the old buildings – beautiful! Alice
As I was driving home from the Rocky Neck Cultural Center where we had the Cape Ann Painter and Photographer Group this morning, I noticed a woman putting out a sign on the sidewalk which said "Hand Made Hats." I stopped to investigate and met owner Karen King of" Scout Vintage Finds." She makes amazing hats from special imported felt and uses beautiful antique hat forms to shape the hats -all one of a kind. They are amazing. Her friend Shana who dropped in agreed to model a few hats! She also has a lot of interesting antiiques. Karen said that her shop is open Thursday – Monday. .. a must see shop! 186 East Main Street, Gloucester. 978-290-05533 Alice Gardner

Here are some pictures from the Paint Essex Day and Wet Paint Auction tonight at the Cox Reservation. We painted in the rain and had a great time.
The auction of paintings and party was enjoyed by all . Alice
You may have seen some of Alice Garder’s work at the Annie last December…
…or at other venues. She also organizes the monthly painter/photographer meeting downtown. The other day I met her just outside her studio, right next to the Cape Ann Museum, and she invited me in to see her work space! Here are a few photos.
This is a shot I took with my camera’s built-in panorama option, so there are some jagged lines, but I liked the overview it gives of the space.
Among her specialties are house portraits, as you can see here:
Thank you for the tour, Alice!
I thought I would send on some pictures of the Jul Fair in Rockport yesterday… the Santa Lucia ceremony – very moving.Then on to the Sargent House Museum which was lovely with all the Christmas decorations – love that silver! Then we came upon the children’s choir entering the Saint John’s Episcopal Church for their concert. They began with "Once in Royal David’s City." Excellent choir. A perfect day for the Middle Street Walk and the Jul Fair in Rockport.
I thought I would send on the story of Santa Lucia. Alice
