We got in last night, picked up the Maya girl and settled into the business of relaxing. The New York trip was wonderful, ending in the perfect day in Manhattan.
I got some excellent goodies during my New York Bead shopping including some vintage rivolis so I can continue making Abrege, at least the gold and silver. I still have a few of the black and dorado with the wonderful vintage tabac rivoli, but until I find more rivoli's (and don't think I"m not trying) this will be the last few.
We'll be having a small family gathering for Thanksgiving, requiring a turkey and the usual stuff, so this morning we went in search of a smallish fresh turkey and all of the fixings. In and out of the grocery store by 8:30 a.m. and no trauma.
Even picked up some Thanksgiving themed tulips for the dining room
The beautiful vase came from last years December visit to Santa Cruz. We've been buying glass at Lundberg Studios for many years. It is located in the small coast town of Davenport a few miles North of Santa Cruz on a beautiful stretch of road that winds along the ocean. The Roadhouse cafe makes an excellent lunch stop before having a look at the wonderful glass that Lundberg has to offer.
