Support Local Businesses

Being a small business owner, this issue lies close to my heart. I know how much work goes into owning your own business and how hard it is to stay ahead of the game. It's challenging and rewarding. I try to support local businesses when the opportunity arises especially in a town like Lawton where chain-businesses thrive. Therefore, I hope to include many blog posts covering independent businesses in the area!

It was the national day of love (Valentine's Day), and who wouldn't love checking out a local shop on such a lovely day? The Red Door Gallery & Emporium in Medicine Park, OK had it's reopening open house and I found myself browsing through the treasures found in the quaint little shop.

What can one find at The Red Door? Art work by 24 local artists! Everything from pottery to photographs (and much more) can be found here. For more information check them out on Facebook.

In other news...

Spring is in the air. Well, kind of. And, we're planning our gardens here at The Stone Turtle! So many herbs and flowers to choose from! Basil and echinacea made the cut, of course. Who doesn't love fresh basil? We also picked up a butterfly bush (...or two) and wisteria!
We're expanding our recipe vault and baking skills for a monthly German kaffeeklatsch hosted at the Stone Turtle. Flour everywhere. Quite literally. 
Project (Color) Madness is still an ongoing project. There's always a splash of new color at The Stone Turtle - Lodging! This week's color combination is pink and green.

Have a wonderful week!

This blog is brought to you by the lovely (biased opinion, we know) Stone Turtle – Lodging, a small family owned and operated hotel / lodging business near Lawton, Oklahoma, Fort Sill,  the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge, Meers and Medicine Park. Yeah, that’s right we’re a small lodging business close to all the awesomeness Oklahoma has to offer!!
