WHAT A WEEKEND!!! Spent with the family watching the St. Patrick's Day parade and then going to the Celtic Fest in St. Augustine!! OH MY, talk about busy and fun!! The weather (sorry for my northern friends) was in the 80's and BEAUTIFUL!! I didn't get any good photos, but I'll look through some my son took....maybe we'll find a couple!
Last weekend I was down in St. Augustine for the Seafood fest as a vendor and let me just say that I have to thank my daughter again! Not only did she help me with my booth (for 3 days) but she also found this amazing place right along the historical St George Street. When we were (there was 6 of us) down there again this past weekend we stopped in the same cafe - Mi Casa Cafe - and just let me tell you......WONDERFUL!! Last weekend they saved us - both in price and in GREAT food. This weekend it was our oasis! Ms. Marnie and her 'boys' provided us with a cool place to rest our tired feet and some of the best food I've had in a LONG TIME!! I wish I had photos, but we were so hungry we dug right in....and ALL of us LOVED IT!!! And Ms. Marnie is a treat as well!! As we sat....filling out "tummies with yummies" (a cute saying my son came up with) we had great conversation and then....the live music started....you really MUST make this a destination if you are in St. Augustine, Florida!
Do you remember me talking about the great HOP that I am a part of?? My partner - Ms. Catherine and I have exchanged out 'bead soups'!! Here is what I sent her.....I'll let her show you on her blog what that all is....(make sure you check out her blog)....
AND HERE - is what she sent me!!! I am so very excited!! EVERYTHING is wonderful!!!!
ALL I can say is THANK YOU!! Even the containers are going to be used...they make perfect little project boxes!! Now, to just design and bead what is in my mind to do with all these beads....I am seeing MULTIPLE projects!!! :) I am so very lucky!!!
