I was delighted to read your article regarding Country Charm (Jan. 9 issue).

Beth and her mom, Jerry, were absolutely made for a business such as this one. Both are talented women. Both have been gifted with a “creativeness” I envy.

I remember, clearly, when they began painting ceramics on a fairly small scale. Their artistic abilities escalated into the success you see now.

I can recall walking into their shop one chilly afternoon and was handed a warm cup of tea, flavored with apple. Ah, the timing was perfect. There has never been a time I could leave Country Charm without feeling good about my visit there. Whether I made a purchase or not, I was always made to feel: “Welcome” …

Along with their friend and helper, Pat, I wish them continued success.
