The Giving Evergreen
The "Giving Evergreens" is a sculpture, created by Sanford Werfel, of three evergreen trees with pine needle clusters finished in gold, silver, and copper and hand carved stones.

Adding a pine needle cluster, stone, or tree is a lasting and exceptional way to celebrate, honor, or remember someone who has touched your life!

Seasonal Acrylic Paintings

Display Case

Amethyst Glass by Jan Lohmann


Jan Lohmann, of Harvey’s Lake, will be displaying her collection of Amethyst glass this February.


It was natural for Jan to want to collect Amethyst glass due to her love of the color purple. As with any collection, she started out with one vase and it continued to grow when she saw another piece, and then another. In addition to the glass, she also receives various pieces of purple jewelry as gifts from friends and family since they know the color makes her happy.

Of her collection, Jan states “I don’t have a place in my home to display my purple glass, so I am happy to place it in the library case. The light shines through the glass and highlights its beauty!”
