August Vacation Memories

Hello Friends, I have missed you last week as I took a much needed vacation with My Best Guy. It was a beautiful and relaxing week, although the very high temps hung on each day. Being by the water was a bit cooler and thankfully, the cottage was air conditioned.

We stayed in a sweet little cottage cabin style getaway with the water near by and wildlife stopping by for a visit each day. Mornings and evenings we enjoyed time on the water, long walks, fishing and just relaxing. Sitting on the porch and watching the day was so restful.

During the week I also took some time for Summer fest and antiquing. You know I would have to go shopping, right? It was like we had the town all to ourselves as the hot temps kept most people inside. I have to applaud the Summer fest artists as they braved the heat with their gorgeous treasures. I brought back some treasures for redesign and can't wait to start on those soon.

We also celebrated our son's August birthday, when we returned home, over the weekend and our anniversary to follow later this week.
Now, it is back to reality and back in the studio, where, you know, I love to be. One week without creating sends me into artistic withdrawal. So today, I am happy to be back in my element.

Here are some pics from our vacation week.

Just look at this huge part of a grapevine. Found by an artist in 2000, it remains on display in the City Hall.

Stopping to chat with this nice Victorian man. He didn't have much to say, but he was a good listener. LOL~

My B~Guy always brings me flowers. He gave me this pretty rose and mum arrangement for the table in the cottage, and as a little early anniversary gift.

Thank you for visiting today and also for stopping by the past post revisited while I was away. I look forward to seeing you soon and visits to my friends in blogland. I know I have missed much and will enjoy catching up with you.
In the meantime, I will be finishing many new treasures on the way to my shoppes and enjoying my studio time to the fullest.
Have a beautiful Summer day and blessings to you.
