Tour Review by Alice in Paris

This is a beautifully done blog with professional photos from one of our first tour participants. Shelagh Duffett is a local artist, writer and photographer who sells her beautiful work at the Seaport Farmers’ Market and online on her site Alice in Paris Loves Art and Tea.  She is a great supporter of all things local and the finer things in life (great food, beautiful people and places, and cats) and her prolific blogs are such a delight to read – a great lifter of spirits.  Subscribe to her site and discover lots of local gems and also be the first view Shelagh’s artwork whenever new pieces are finished.  Such a pleasure to have Shelagh take part in our tasting tours!
