It's a special day.

Celebrating 30 years of 
Pioneer Heritage Day Tours.

In 1970 our little town of Spring City, Utah was placed on the National Historic City Register. 

Only one other town in the entire country, Colonial Williamsburg, has been so designated. 

We are celebrating, as we have for the past 30 years, 

Fifty historic homes have been lovingly restored. 
Many of them will be open to the public on saturday, the 28th of May.  

Pioneer Heritage Day Tours will culminate with an exciting 
Art Auction and Art Sale. 

And I have been painting.

I'm looking forward to seeing old and new friends.

Champagne is on ice. 

My studio is open.  

Please stop by.



  1. Oh I so wish I could dear Gina - but will still be here in Ireland! Having a marvelous time though and it will be hard to leave next week. I love everything about this island.

    Good luck with your Heritage Day Sale and the wonderful celebration.
    Hugs - Mary x

    1. Dear Mary, I can tell, from your photographs, that you are having a marvelous time. Thank you for including us in your travels.

  2. Dear Gina - like Mary I wish that I could be there to enjoy a glass of champagne with you, and view your exquisite ceramics.
    Hope you all have a wonderful and very successful day on Saturday.

    1. Dear Rosemary, thank you for your good wishes. Who knows, one of these days you may be coming this way and we will celebrate with several glasses of champagne.

  3. Dear Gina,
    wishing you a happy Memorial Day Celebration.The weather forecast looks perfect for the weekend and so do your wonderful ceramics.
    Warmest hugs, Sieglinde

    1. Dear Sieglinde, The sun is shining brightly this morning and the forecast is for more of the same in the next few days. Still have a lot to do. Leaving for Europe in the middle of the planting season was not such a good idea.
      Wishing you and yours a very happy holiday.

  4. Gina, this will be a fabulous Heritage Day.
    It might make you smile to read that although I was born and raised in Virginia, it was some time before I was old enough to realize that most of "Colonial Williamsburg" was a very sensitively done recreation. I still loved visiting there, even after I knew that it was a sort of theme park.
    I'm sure that your location is the real thing. Wishing you great success with your open studio. xo

    1. Dear Frances, I remember visiting Colonial Williamsburg. It was many years ago. I didn't realize then or now, that it was a recreation, probably because it was so well done.
      We are lucky in this town in that we have several very dedicated people who have taken on the task of restoring some of the historic buildings which have made this little town famous.
      I thank you for your good wishes. I always look forward to this day because so many people come from near and far and all of them are so happy to be visiting.

  5. Would love to stop by one day, but I'm in Australia, so it won't be any time soon! I'm on a farm with lots of animals and really enjoy reading your blog. Cheers Lynne

    1. Welcome Lynne. How nice of you to stop by and leave a comment. I am so pleased that you enjoy reading my blog. When you have animals to take care of there is always so much to do. Have a great weekend and thank you for visiting.

  6. Oh Gina, to be able to stop by your studio, what a charming thought that is. One day, maybe that can happen for me. Enjoy your celebration, I know you will~

  7. Hi Mary, How are you? Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. It is always so appreciated. ox, Gina
