Updated information on the STJ Artist Meet n Greet and Soiree
The Artist Meet n Greet (Fri. 7-9) and the Holiday Soiree (Sat. 10 am – 3 pm) are scheduled as planned!River Rescue at the New Hope Eagle Fire Company has advised that the Delaware River will be cresting later this evening or early tomorrow morning.
Several back roads in the area were closed earlier today, including the New Hope-Lambertville Bridge, due to high water volume. Local businesses and residents residing directly along the Delaware River in New Hope, PA and Lambertville, NJ have been advised to evacuate as a safety precaution.
However, the New Hope Eagle Fire Company, the venue for our events, will be open and is not located in the downtown area along the Delaware River.Though parts of Rt. 29 were closed earlier today, many roads are still open and Route 202 is easily accessible to the Fire Company.
Alternative driving routes may be advisable if traveling tomorrow or Saturday.However, most major roads should be back to normal by later tomorrow afternoon. It appears as though it may be a slow news day, as many reports of flooding seem to equate to a world disaster! Such is not the case and we look forward to seeing you soon!!
How is it September already? Only 58 days to Halloween! It is busy season for Halloween collectors and artists. Best of all, we are finally into Halloween art show season which means happy collectors will be bagging new treats. I envy those of you who will be heading over to the SpookyTime Jingles Holiday Soiree next weekend.
This is the perfect time to plan your Halloween party (or parties for that matter!). I hold an annual pumpkin carving party. Not only is it a fun time, but once you have a collection of carving tools it is easy to repeat every year.
I’m swooning over a blog/web site called Hostess With the Mostess (HWTM). Their latest blog post is a Vintage-Style Halloween party. After you are done checking out the blog for ideas, head over to their web site and search on “Halloween” for even more inspiration.
Between HWTM and the catalogs/magazines I’ve gotten my hands on this season, it is obvious that the sophisticated party look is still very much in. HWTM features pictures of parties with hot pink incorporated into black, white, and orange color schemes. It’s a great way to be modern and add a dash of POP.
