GOING TO ICELAND!!

I'm leaving for Iceland with my Blue-fish Bowl, Ptarmigans in the Snow, and the Viking Ship. Hope the weather holds! Looking forward to the Aurora borealis and clear skies to view it, the world famous Blue Lagoon hot springs (oh yes, soaking in the outdoor tubs!), and with a luck, people who like my glass art!


Winter is going to STAY!

The snows are looking more permanent on the Blowmedowns, the Bean has taken ownership of the spot in front of the woodstove, and Hiin has the little shed stogged with chopped wood! We're getting ready for the big Freeze-up of the winter months... clear skies, frozen cars!

Winter's Coming to the Rock!

The last of the red leaves just got covered this past week with our first snowfall... jays are taking over the bird feeders, chickadees sneak into the front yard feeders...
Fishermen going out to sea, regardless of the weather...
The beautiful Blowmedowns blanketed in snow. Gotta' love my view!

The West Coast Craft Fair was a great event again this year, and a pleasure to attend. I am still unpacking and sorting, cleaning up after the whole bonanza, and getting ready for the next foray into craft sales! This time, I will be off to Iceland-- still two weeks away, and have a little bit of time to prepare a few more items that might work for the Icelandic crowds! Should be fun!!
