I'm Back.......Again!

Oh yah, I'm back!! Sorry for the lack of posts the past few days! Were you beginning to think I stayed on Nantucket?? Well, it was mighty tempting, let me tell you! So, the "comped room" turned out to be a comped two bedroom COTTAGE!!! Yes, that's right, our own cottage! It was awesome! It had a living room, sitting room, FOUR flat screen TVs with DVD players, a washer/dryer (not that I would do laundry on vacation!!) and a kitchenette. Can you imagine the look on our faces when we saw that??? Gobsmacked!

And it gets better, they leave wonderful truffles on your pillow, so with two guest rooms, TWO candy boxes!! And the manager, who was so rotten last year, sent us a bottle of wine and a plate of chocolate covered strawberries! Talk about hog heaven! We decided to call this our anniversary present even though it is next week, so we took ourselves out for a nice dinner!

I have some pictures to post and am going to try something new this time, a slide show. My good friend Nui, has been creating them, and they are so much fun, I thought I would give it a try! So I'll work on that today.

And I know you are probably thinking, what's a vacation without shopping? Well one of the things I LOVE about Nantucket is there are NO CHAIN shops or restaurants. No Starbucks, No Dunkin, No Department Stores. It's really a nice way to live. I purchased a print from my favorite local artists, Greg Hill!

Sconset Cottage Print

He has a shop right on the wharf, and if you ever received a recycled glass sun catcher from me as a gift, this is where I get them! I also stopped in at an antique shop and got another "Coronation" plate to add to my collection. What kind of an Anglophile would I be without collecting royal memorabilia??

I am trying to work in the studio as much as I can these days, as the busy holiday season is upon us, and I have some interesting new ventures in the works as well that I am very excited about! (I don't want to jinx myself, so I will fill you in later.)

Back in a bit with the slide show!!!
