Vacation Photos and New Jewelry!

I have been so slow to post about my vacation.  It just seems like a lot of things took my attention as soon as I got home.  In the last week I have ended up having to get a new car battery and a new phone, had a bachelorette party to attend and have started working on a custom order.  Busy Busy Busy!

So finally I am able to share a little about my vacation.  The first leg began with a 3 day road trip from St. Louis to Saco, Maine.  We made several stops, one of them being my favorite unexpected stop in Port Jervis, NY at the Gillinder Glass Factory.  We were able to take a tour and watch the glass pieces being made.   I have always wanted to take a glass blowing class.  I have even signed up for several and all of them have been cancelled due to not enough interest.  One day....

Then later that evening we made it to our destination.  A little cottage in Camp Ellis, Maine that has been in our family for ages.  I have been going up almost every year since I was a little girl.  I have so many wonderful memories and tons of really funny ones.  The best memories are simple ones of sitting on the porch in our rocking chairs listening to the ocean and the lovely sounds of Bob Marley and Jimmy Buffet coming from the quaint Christine's Bed & Breakfast right across the street.

New Summer Updates & Give-Aways!

Hello from Maine!  My vacation seems to be so very busy.  I haven't had but a minute or two to log in.  I guess that's a good thing!  It's absolutely gorgeous up here.  I have been lucky enough to be able to make a trip up almost every summer since I was born.  I hope one day I will bring my kids here too.
