The Waving Girl
On a sultry moonlit night, the passing shadows of a young girl and her loyal collie companion create a silhouette on the antiquated doors of the River Street Marketplace. One of many ghostly occurrences thought to be created by the Waving Girl of Savannah.
The Hauntingly Beautiful Colonial Park Cemetery
It’s dead time in the late 1800s, and a young seamstress is discreetly following a handsome gentleman she had caught sight of through the streets of Savannah, Georgia. She watched him quietly gliding into The Colonial Cemetery. Was he there to pay his respects to a passed-on relative? Or was he there to duel? As she watched, the man dissipated into the Habersham family graves. Amazed and stunned the young seamstress told her story to friends as many others who have seen the ghost of James Habersham Jr. walk the same path, night after night. His spirit is said to haunt the original Habersham residence, now called The Olde Pink House, a world-class restaurant on Abercorn Street. There will be more about The Olde Pink House at another time.
The Haunted Bradley’s Lock and Key Shop Building
The Haunted Bradley’s Lock and Key Shop Building Suppose you find yourself walking down State Street in Savannah, Georgia, near the beautiful Lutheran Church of the Ascension. In that case, you might not notice a benign-looking building with an adjacent parking lot with crumbling gravel and bricks. After all, Savannah has many old buildings and some that look haunted and beautiful. But this building hosts a Savannah institution, Bradley’s Lock and Key Shop. Some believe it is haunted.
The Many Modes of My Art Studio Cat Assistants
My art studio is small and well used. It is just a little converted bedroom with an open walk in closet in the back of my home. One floor to ceiling window looks out on a pocket of a wooded forest with a little lake that I can see through a pattern of oak and pine trees. Occasionally a turkey or small herd of deer will walk past my window. Out of this wooded forest is where all of my art studio cat assistants have come from. They all showed up meowing, hungry, thirsty, and sometimes pregnant and needing a trip to the vet.

How to Recycle Pastel Dust to Create New Pastels
How to Recycle Pastel Dust to Create New Pastels If you are an artist that uses soft pastels as much as I do, you know the amount of dust that is created while drawing with the medium. Good quality pastels can be very expensive. Most good quality soft pastels cost between three to seven dollars per pastel stick. It is a shame to waste the dust they produce.
