Back from my second trip down to Florida feeling very refreshed and invigorated. It was the palm trees, the ocean waves, the fields of orange trees, being outside in the warm sun every day, visiting with family, and the fishing! The inter coastal waterways are a great way to get out on the water if the ocean is rough and windy, there is so much to see and still fish salt. Manatees, fish in every color and size, multi million dollar houses, massive boats, birds, and beautiful sunsets.
A lot of art has left the studio in the last few weeks to new homes and as gifts under the tree, with great parking, no crowds, and amazing one of a kind pieces to browse through it will be the most relaxing shopping experience of the season to visit here. I will be taking a holiday then will get right back into the shop to start creating more unique and one of a kind pieces. I am taking things in a new direction this year and am excited to see what will happen!
Thank-you again for your continued patronage and support and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year!!! A few of my home decorating Christmas pictures to sign out the old year, enjoy, as I head for the sun!
T'was the night before Christmas
and all through the house
not a creature was stirring....not even a mouse
A fantastic show again this year for Metal Mermaid Welding at Touch of Saltspring! Despite the -19 with wind chill people always brave the elements to attend this massive show full off everything you could possibly need. From quality one of a kind gallery artwork and booths, to rows of wonderful home made jams and baking, and everything in between. Your guaranteed affordable one stop shopping show of Christmas for Victorians. Thank-you everyone!
