I promised to share with you a little more of our time in the mountains last weekend, so here it is! There is a shop at the edge of the river that has to be one of the most unique places I’ve ever seen.
It belongs to Capt’n. Dave but there are a few other artists there as well. They mostly work in wood, but there is a ceramic artist. Here are some examples of their work.

|More hand finished wooden mantles.|
|AMAZING horse sculpture!|
|This is her studio. The contraption you see is a slab roller that helps to make tiles.|
You definitely cannot miss the entrance, and the yard says, “Hey you! Come over HERE!”

|Enter at the hand carved bears|
The guys there were super friendly. They even have a sign that says, “photos welcome”. Great news for us bloggers! Stop by for a visit next time you’re in Townsend. They are located on the road that goes from Townsend to Pigeon Forge via Wears Valley.
I think it’s important to note that I didn’t get any money for promoting this place, just the joy of your smile.
Also, I HAVE BIG NEWS!!!! No, I’m not pregnant, lol. I am starting a new blog! I have so enjoyed this space and being the Drowsy Bee, but my needs for an online presence are changing a little. It has been my heart’s desire to be able to sell things that I make here. I am also looking into an Etsy shop, although every little bit helps, so I need a site where I can expand in the future. That is leading me to this difficult but exciting decision. It is still under construction so I’ll keep you posted as soon as it’s ready. I will have an easy way to find me when it happens. Wish me luck!
I’m so thrilled you visited with me today. Wasn’t it a beautiful day?
