So cold! The I did atwo day festival in Milford PA. Saturday was wonderful except for the 34 degree temperatures. It did warm up later on in the day but never hit 60. The mornings were brutal. Luckily people still came out. Driving up there a black bear came darting out of the woods and ran across the highway and again I saw one on Sunday running across the road. Boy, they're big! I guess they are on the hunt for food before hibernation. I started doing chain maille. Only earrings, in the beginning I realized I had two left hands but after about an hour I got the hang of it. Lots of fun and people loved them.

Alba Winery

This past weekend I was at a two day festival at Alba Winery. What a beautiful place. The vines were ripe with grapes and the bee's were out in full force. There were two great bands that played both days and I met lots of new wonderful people who loved and purchased my jewelry. The wine festivals are only 5 hours a day. It's twenty dollars to get in and you get a wine glass, a list and a pencil and can taste all of the different wines from the 20 or so wineries that are there. Then go back and buy your favorite bottles. The smart people come in large groups and rent a bus to take them to and from. It's like a party with a thousand or so people. And a good time was had by all!

Prince Edward Island Sea Glass

Prince Edward Island has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and from these beaches come these translucent gems, lovingly referred to as Mermaid Tears. They are tumbled smooth by the constant friction of water and sand. The first Mermaid Tears Sea Glass Festival was held at the Woods Island Lighthouse on July 18, 2009 and the 2010 festival is in the works. This could be a great way to start your next PEI vacation.
