With the Toads, there's always MAGIC!

We hope you will join us on Saturday, December 5 for Rusk County's Winter Magic Event.  At Toad House you will find beautiful gifts made by local artists, music, and art for children.  The following quote was posted by a wonderful librarian from Illinois, a great supported of the arts.

       "When you buy from an independent artist you are buying more than just a painting or a novel or a song.  
        You are buying hundreds of hours of experimentation and thousands of failures. You are buying days, weeks, months, years of frustration and moments of pure joy. You are buying nights of worry about paying the rent, having enough money to eat, having enough money to feed the children, the birds, the dog. 
        You aren’t just buying a thing, you are buying a piece of heart, part of a soul, a private moment in someone’s life. 
        Most importantly, you are buying that artist more time to do something they are truly passionate about, something that makes all of the above worth the fear and the doubt/ something that puts the life into the living."
