Well, we are back home after enjoying our vacation in Florida. Although it was chilly by Florida standards it was still much warmer than back home. Our condo on the beach was just wonderful. The views, amazing. We did luck out and had a few days warm and sunny enough to lounge by the pool. It has been quite the re-entry coming back north. We got snow and very cold temps to deal with, but that is what winter is like here, even for a southern state.
When I travel I like to seek out independently owned bead shops and lo and behold I found one, located just up the road from where we were staying, called Island Cove Beads and Gallery. If I lived in that area, I’m sure it would become my second home. Friendly staff, lots of great beads, some of which were made by local glass bead artists, and an area to sit and hang out making jewelry. My kind of place. I was glad I found it and got to spend some time in there. Of course I found some goodies to bring home with me! How could I not, I ask you. I’m saving my $$ for ‘the’ Tucson show (more on that later), but I could not resist. Plus I’m supporting a locally owned shop. All good.
