Go See Doug

It is the time of year when nights and days are full of socials and many to-do’s .  It is almost impossible to fit it all in.  One thing that you might really enjoy making time for is going to Doug Beasley’s festive open studio this weekend.  Here are the details:  2370 Hendon Ave (enter through the downstairs, office entrance), St.Paul, 55108; Friday 5-10pm, Saturday 10am-5pm, Sunday noon-4pm (Dec. 9, 10 and 11).

If the images he captures on film are not enough to get you over to his really sweet little spot in St.Paul, the fellowship ought to be.  I’ve posted about Doug before, and clearly, I’m a bit biased.  I am excited to see his new book, Earth Meets Spirit, that has just arrived, hot off the presses, from Milan.  

I am going to try and make it over there on Sunday, and possibly acquire something for “our” birthday.  Mine is on the 10th, and my sweetheart’s on the 11th, so in our home, we get to enjoy a lengthy collective birthday.  The weekend will start out with dinner tonight at Meritage.  Then on to a party at the St.Paul Hotel where sparkles and shimmer will be everywhere.  Saturday, one of my besties will take me out to a special undisclosed location where I will treat myself (thanks Mom!) to a pair of shearling lined clogs something like these.  We will be cozy at home with some friends on Saturday night.  Sunday will be easy and a bit more quiet, ending with a great dinner at a yet undecided place.  If you have any suggestions, please leave a comment here.

To get back on track, here is a moment that Doug captured of me in the Badlands of South Dakota 11 or 12 (could it be 13?!) years ago.


Take in some goodness this weekend.  And go see Doug!
