Bags are packed and I'm off to the beach. P.S. here's a few details on the giveaway when I return...

I have packed and repacked until I managed to turn a month's worth of clothes into two suitcases. The trick to it was eliminating all the totally unnecessary clothing I always take on my two week vacation to the beach. I told you I would be able to get it done. My problem has always been my need to pack my complete wardrobe for a two week trip and the realization every year that I don't wear three quarters of the stuff I take. I feel like I am going through clothing withdrawal right now but I have it all in two suitcases and if I find I have to have something else it will be the prefect excuse to go shopping more while I am there. I am really very excited about vacation starting tomorrow since I am going to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, my favorite beach destination. We have rented a big beautiful house for a number of my family and some friends and it will be great fun to hang out doing not much but enjoying the people and the fantastic ocean. We go there in September each year because it is still warm enough for the beach but the crowds are gone for the summer and the prices on the rentals have dropped a lot! I will be taking my laptop and camera so I can see what y'all are writing and if I can I will post some of the pictures of the fabulous ocean.

As an extra treat when I get back, I have made a beautiful piece of jewelry for my fall give away. I will be posting the photos and dates when I return.
It will be selected randomly from the comments and the followers for this blog and the my other blog Sugar Creek Beads . Check it out if you haven't been there cause it is lots of fun and filled with information on life around my jewelry studio. Don't forget to make comments on both here and there and be a follower in both spots. It will double your chance in the drawing!


  1. Make sure to bring an extra empty bag for any purchases you make so you can bring them home. So jealous, enjoy the trip! :O)

  2. Have a great trip! I'm so glad I found your blog!


  3. I envy you your time at the beach. Enjoy!

  4. What a great place to vacation - I love the beach. I have never been to the Outer Banks, but it looks terrific.
