Anyway, I promised I would show you some treasures that I picked up on my travels to New England and some I got from right here this weekend. The sculpture or whatever it is above I purchased from an adorable shop called 8 Bells in Rockport, MA. Robin, the shop owner has an eye for beautiful things and her shop is crammed full of eye candy (no, I didn't take photos-sorry), but this photo of the outside (on the right) was taken by Marilyn at Communicating Across Boundaries. There is so much to look at that I spent a good 1/2 hour in this tiny shop before I spotted the rather large art piece above. Now, I know it's not original art (as a matter of fact, I'll probably see it at home goods for half the price I paid, but I had to have it). If you ever go to Rockport, MA, promise me you'll stop by the store...you won't be sorry.
Robin even invited me in to see her home behind the store. Oh. My. Gosh. Talk about eye candy! It's a tiny, waterfront cottage home chock full and dripping with beautiful things. I really wanted to snap photos but I just have to commit it to memory.
While traveling, I also added to my sea glass collection and once I get it cleaned up, I'll snap some photos and do a little educational post about sea glass, but that's all for now!
