Enjoy this little tool as a gift from Ponder Cove. I hope you take advantage of this on-line calendar. I have used this for years and just love it. It's an easy download, doesn't take much space and can be forwarded to all of your family and friends. If you missed it go to for the Dog Contest winner calendar and celebrate all of these cutie patooties.

Then there is our gorgeous nature calendar featuring Gary's photos that I have reissued......

Just in from our frequent guest Christine. Just in time for your e-mailing card list. Save a stamp and give your friends a big dog lick instead....
HO HO HO....martha and critters

There is no better place than the Design Gallery for your Holiday Shopping. Wendy Reid has brought a flare of sophistication to the mountains featuring the best of craft, a kitchen corner that waaaay outdoes Williams and Sonoma and then there is her infamous Knitting Nook featuring lessons and all of the latest in yarns. Sitting pretty in downtown Burnsville which is one of our favorite small towns within close proximity to Ponder Cove.

Also note this new film I just picked up from the Yancey County Chamber of Commerce. It will cool your blood pressure and just let you feel the wonder of our mountains.

Come see us...and the Design Gallery.

Gorgeous, or what???? We went out and would you believe it stopped a mile down the road. We went on to Asheville and enjoyed a sunny afternoon and came home to 5 inches. So, we have our own little private winter wonderland.
