@ArtHaus

Thumb_884a0ac4-4a61-4abc-b7a1-5ebfe0b34685.

A vivid evening of words, movement, and music, inspired by jazz trumpet master, Chet Baker. West Coast Jazz of the 1950s was defined by this newcomer with the looks of a matinee idol, whose cool, understated trumpet hinted at something deeper, a solitary sound in a blue room.

This original collaboration between trumpet player Jon Ailabouni, dance/choreographer Blake Nellis, and actor/director Kristen Underwood, was created exclusively for ArtHaus and Water Street Music Series.…

Paper Feathers and the Tiniest Little Notebook

@Decorah Public Library

Thumb_d5bdb7b3-8ae8-4287-bad5-69a3eb187208.

This after school session for anyone age 9 and older will focus on how heavy, dingy old books can become lovely things light and tiny with some skillful cutting, a few well-placed stitches and some watercolors. We will try two different feather designs and techniques using book text papers and also make a small "Matchbook Journal" using endpages from discarded books and other re-purposed papers. A light snack is offered as well.
Adults welcome…

In this after school session you will learn how to harvest…

I'm asking $20 each, I've got males and females, black, brown, and cream colors (they're siblings though, so I'd only give you one sex).
I also have some extra rabbit housing. We can talk about that too if you're…

My cat, Sophie, slipped out our front door Saturday night/Sunday morning. Someone thought they saw her on a Facebook post, but was unable to find the post again. If you have seen her or heard of someone who may have taken her in, please contact me. She is an awesome cat and is dearly missed! She's a gray tabby with white feet, chest and blaze, and has light green eyes.

Lost+Found: Is this your kitty?

Thumb_c55d9468-0408-4907-bb5b-c66b0650b2be.

If so, you are missing a very affectionate, fun loving, wonderful kitty cat!

I first saw her yesterday (Tue, Oct 28) on the patio, though I think I've been feeding her for a few days. When she first saw me, she ran. But shaking the kitty food container caught her attention. She came to me, and allowed me to pet and feed her. She's been my shadow ever since. I know if she…
