West Seattle weekend scenes: Hometown Holidays; ‘Gifted’ at Feedback

December 9, 2012 at 1:39 pm | In Holidays, West Seattle news, WS culture/arts | 3 Comments

Even before Donna Ryan (above) opened the doors of her City Mouse Studio for West Seattle Junction Hometown Holidays Santa photos this morning, some excited families were waiting, we’re told. The line wasn’t too long when we went by before noon – some very patient little ones peeked through the festively decorated window:

Today is the first of two Sundays that Donna’s taking Santa photos – with proceeds benefiting WestSide Baby, continuing till 3 pm. You can also stop by the Hometown Holidays Headquarters kitty-corner from there, at California/Alaska by KeyBank.

About a mile south on California, the “Gifted” bazaar has begun at Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor):

You might not need a fan now – but look ahead to summer, and Lisa Jones‘ playing-card fans might come in handy. Her business card says she’s “putting the FUN into FUNction.” Among the other art/craft creators there, microphotographer extraordinaire Machel Spence, RobRoy Chalmers, and Christin Schaefer with photos including the one that reminds us of the “grumpy cat” meme:

“Gifted” at Feedback (6451 California SW) continues till 5 pm.

  1. Furry Faces Foundation will be at WSCC’s ‘Extreme Makeover Gingerbread Challenge’, with two gingerbread house entries. One will be designed and decorated by the younger Furry Faces gang…because, well, we adults get a little excited.

    The second entry will be designed and built by us older people. It will be silly like last years, but send a very important message about how to save lives. And new, this year, our friends of A.A.R.F. (Animal Aid and Rescue Foundation), have also entered the contest. We will next each other, so be sure to stop by to our [friendly], competitive SMACKDOWN!!
