the FINE People of Vermont

Headed out this last weekend for Woodstock Vermont to spend a day with 60 painters who are obsessed with Fine Paints of Europe. Not only is fine paints of europe ( John Lehey) the best available paint in america but Woodstock is one of those best american towns.

We stayed at THE GRIST MILL HOUSE. This very old mill became my home away from home for the weekend. Peter & Carol are both super interesting and super alert to all needs. The house is kept in great shape and the soul has not been destroyed by mass-produced objects. Everything was placed just so to tell a story of the mill and its occupants. From the collection of lanterns to the mills original stencils hanging on the door. My favorite parts of the house were the various built-in furniture that conserved space and created a boat like feel.

Sailing thru water. restoring and refinishing wooden boats and homes. Handcrafting a collection of last a lifetime- inheritable objects. ( worldsendny) Inspiration comes from the places we sail, the people we meet and the history of long ago.
