We had a fabulous time up at the cottage. It was nice to just hang out on the dock, and swim with the kids. The lake was surprisingly very warm for the most part, and of course I didn't open my bead box even once. :-)
I'm back, feeling refreshed, energized, and very inspired to get back into the studio to come up with some exciting new projects for you all.
I leave you with a link to a beautiful garden site I just came across. The Lost Gardens of Helicon
An ancient history, and fascinating glimpse into an incredible garden that was almost lost.
