Wellspring House Fundraiser

This Year Wellspring House is having their 11th Annual "Women Homoring Women" Luncheon at the Sheraton Ferncroft in Danvers. Martha Coakley, our Massachusetts Attorney General is the keynote speaker.

They invited 50 artists to decorate unfinished birdhouses in the shape of a lighthouse. I was inspired by my Mackenzie Childs Fish knobs that are on my kitchen cabinets. The Houses will be auctioned off to raise money for this worthy fund!
