New Day #293

Got crafty with my friends over at the Davis Graveyard. Every year, Jeff and Chris create an award-winning cemetery display, every bit of which is handmade. If you're reading this in the Portland area, you've got to go see it.

If you'd like to own this one singular sensation, you'll need to come to the graveyard this Friday night where it'll be auctioned off by Portland Center Stage to raise money for its high school playwright program. Contact Jessy at PCS at (503) 445-3744 / for specifics.
