spring daze weekend

on saturday we went to spring daze art festival in cary, nc. i got a neat silver ring which i didn't take a picture of, a piece of art for the kitchen and a funky fish plant stake from the girl who made my 'girlville' sign:

i'm going to hang the picture over the little green chair i just got back from my parent's house.

later saturday 'M' (tyler's girlfriend) came over and we fired up the chiminea for the first time this season and we had a bottle of virginia wine and grilled out steaks...


see the hammock in the background behind the napkins??? i spent a lot of time in the hammock reading on saturday and sunday.
it was a great relaxing weekend...sunday we frantically packed for the beach...we left at 10:30 this morning and were fully unpacked and settled in on the balcony reading and having fruity frozen drinks by 3pm...more on the beach later, peeps...(by the way i started the paula deen book on the ride down and it is beyond good. i may even finish it tonite)...

Im happy to hear the Paula book is good. Cause you just never know with books by celebrities.

Your backyard looks like a wonderful private retreat!

ANd I LOVE the fish plant stake.

The food looks wonderful and I bet that hammock is very comfy.

That food...Hello, I'm over here! Is that yummy bacon on there? I like those items you got at the festival. Do you ever see any glass lampwork beads at the festivals?

rpm, yep, it's real bacon...'M' made that salad and it was outstanding. i didn't see any glass lampwork beads at that festival but that girl who makes the signs for me...sometimes she and a group of local artists have shows in one of their houses and one of them does the beads. i always want to get some earrings but never do...maybe this year!
