Holiday Stroll

This is my favorite downtown event of the year. Downtown Milford really comes alive for the annual Holiday Stroll. If you have never attended, I strongly suggest you come this year. Most shops and businesses are open late, offering good holiday cheer and refreshments, carolers, horse drawn carriage rides, Santa and Mrs Claus and more. The festive atmosphere will put you in a holiday mood! - and get some shopping done at the same time! - find lots of unique gifts you won't get at the mall.

The History of Doll Making Presentation

The Mispillion Art League “Third Monday” program for this month is a presentation by area resident and artist, Zelma Nicholas who will share her knowledge of the history of doll making. Having created porcelain antique dolls from their porcelain bodies right up to the clothing they wear, Zelma is an expert in this art form. She has donated numerous dolls that you may find on display in the Milford Museum and taught classes in doll making. She is also a painter and Jewelry designer.

I'm including this doll just for an example of the types of dolls Zelma has made. This one comes from Emily Hart who sells dolls like this one on her website.

Tomorrow night - Monday – Nov. 15th – 6:30 to 8pm
Mispillion Art League
5 N. Walnut Street, downtown Milford

Rare Finds Auction to benefit Mispillion Art League

Some of the neighbors at the Happy Hour tonight in the Hearthstone Clubhouse were asking about this event tomorrow night that benefits the Mispillion Art League - Milford's own art league. If you haven't been to the Art League, I urge you to go on downtown and visit us. We are located at 5 N. Walnut Street, right there on the Riverwalk, across the street from the Riverfront Theatre. We offer classes for children and adults, beginners to advanced.

Here's the scoop on tomorrow night's event. Tickets can be purchased at the door.

Happy Hour at the Clubhouse

A fun time was had by all who came tonight to the first Happy Hour at the Clubhouse! It was so nice to meet so many nice neighbors and feel more of a sense of belonging to this lovely community. We hope to do it every month and that more people will decide to join us. Everyone brought a dish to share and their own beverage. My slow-roasted tomatoes were a hit and I promised to share the recipe! It's so easy and soooo good!

Here it is:

2 pints cherry tomatoes (cut in half if they are large)
1/2 cup Olive Oil
4 -6 cloves garlic minced
basil (fresh or dried - I use a lot)

Roast in a 300 degree oven tender and popping - about an hour. Serve with sliced Italian bread
