Vavenby artists Hilda Reimer and Doris Scarff held Christmas open houses in their homes the week before last.

Reimer sold her own handcrafted glass work, such as glass lit blocks and votive candle holders, and her photographic work.

She had made some of her pictures into calendars. Her pictures were beautiful and, as she said, just caught at the right time. She does try to carry her camera around with her all of the time.

Although located a short distance out of town, it was easy to find one’s way to Reimer’s home for those who had not been there before, as she had put up signs with lights that came on automatically.

Scarff sold decorations and table ornaments, jams, jars with soup ingredients, paintings on different kinds of objects such as wood and skates, and more. There were six other women working at her open house, selling their products as well.

Eleanor Deckert of Avola had her book 10 Days in December for sale. Lou Capostinsky was selling cinnamon buns, which went quickly. Anne Lane and Barb Ferguson had their paintings for sale and Shirley De Vooght had tickets for Serenity upcoming events, gift certificates, and CDs.

Doris ScarffSuzanne Guernier sold her bead jewellery and hair pieces plus gift certificates and origami pockets to put the tickets in. Margot Evans had her binder of graphic designs to choose from for pictures, business cards, flyers, brochures, etc.

There was lots of beautiful and inspirational items to choose from for gifts for those hard to get people or to add to one’s own decorations.

There was tea, coffee, baked goods, and snacks at both open houses, making for a very friendly atmosphere. Both places were beautifully decorated for Christmas.
