Thank you to Splurge  for curating this striking cranberry treasury. I'll have one of everything please. Very holidays-ish, don't you think?

Grey Goose

Another gorgeous find by my parents in Cape Breton. They found a few greys this summer, rare in themselves, but this one is my favourite. Its perfectly smooth, with lots of frosting and some bubbles evident in the glass, usually indicative of hand blown or very old glass. Too beautiful a piece to cover or compete with fussy metalwork, it was drilled with simple jump ring bails and hangs on a 20" sterling silver ball chain. It was freezing cold here today, called for snow last night, but we didn't get it (thank goodness as we're in the process of having new windows installed). Sea Glass hunting days are almost over for another year. How can that be?

An unusal piece of sea glass that we found on a Halifax beach during the summer of 2008. The piece is dark brown, almost black with a beautiful play of iridescense on both sides. I've never found a piece quite like it. After staring at it for a year now, I'm finally ready to turn it into a necklace so it will be making its way into my etsy shop within the next few days!

Upcoming Shows

 I know, I know, its not even Halloween yet, but the Christmas craft shows are starting in just a few weeks. Which means I should be creating rather than sitting at the computer. And I will. Right after this. Or maybe tomorrow, because its late. These are the shows we're doing this season:

The Dartmouth Handcrafter's Guild,  October 30 to November 1 at the Dartmouth Sportsplex

Christmas at the Forum , November 6, 7, 8 at the Forum in Halifax

Dalplex Christmas Craft Market,  November 27, 28, 29 at Dalplex in Halifax

See you there!

Laundry on the clothesline makes me happy. Probably happier than it should. Fresh white sheets dried in the sun smell so wonderful. And I will have sweet dreams tonight.
