Getting ready for a show

I signed up to take part in the Ipswich Art show which will happen in a couple of weeks. I'm looking forward to it. I'm entering a photo of a butterfly which looks like it is drinking from a frozen Daccarri. (Not pictured on blog). It's pretty neat. I took the photo last summer while visiting Magic Wings in western, MA. It was a special place. Above this post is info about the conservatory. I'm also, going to show one of my more unusual necklaces.

This year vendors are invited to sell their handcrafts on Sat. and Sunday, Sept 27 & 28th and I'm planning to be there selling my jewelry and my photo cards.

That is - if it doesn't rain! I'm not prepared for bad weather as I don't own a canopy or tent. I'm keeping my fingers crossed the weather behaves. We'll see.

Here's info about the art show.

*Do not eat before you come!

OK...We went to the seafood festival on Sat. morning. Friday night it was free and a lovely evening, but I was too tired to go after work. It was threatening rain most of Sat. and we lucked out. It didn't rain until very late in the afternoon and by then we were home. It was humid and it sprinkled a little but most of the time the sun was trying to filter through the clouds and it was quite warm.

I had a delicous lobster roll, and scallops wrapped in bacon. Kevin had lobster tail on fried rice. We walked around and listened to two different bands. It was fun to watch the people. The craft booths were mostly made in China stuff, but there were a few that had handmade items. One lady was selling hand painted wooden items. There were several booths selling food - like natural chocolate and dips.

All in all we had a great time and would go again.

OH........When it did rain - it totally poured. It was the aftermath of a huricane.

New Hampshire Trip - Labor Day 2008

On Labor Day we drove up to New Hampshire, and I took lots of pictures.

Kevin and I hiked up to a lovely place to see a vista of the mountains. We ate our lunch there marveling at the beauty. It really was pretty. Later we went to a river to look for special rocks that could be used in my jewelry. All the fresh air and exercise sure got to us so by the time we drove home we were quite hungry. Dinner sure tasted great that night.

Here are some photos from the trip.
