My journey to Haliburton required two very important things that all great Canadian road trips must: Timbits, and broccoli
It was a soggy drive and setup on Thursday, and the forecast was calling for rain most of the weekend but we had lovely weather. Lots of sunshine!
And what's a blog post about a show without some cat love? Jenn and Terry have quite the collection of pets now. There are two cats, a guinea pig and a new (super cute) puppy. This is Smokey Joe, he is the best.
It got hotter as the weekend wore on, thankfully there is a lake so readily available to jump into to cool off. I foolishly tried the rope swing after a long hot day on Saturday... It was not particularly graceful, mostly it involved a face full of water and a bit of a belly flop and my shoulders are still killing me. But considering that the tree that the rope is attached to may be cut down any day now, I figured it was worth a try. I always love the Haliburton show. The visitors are lovely, the organizers are fantastic, we get a delicious vendor's dinner on Saturday, there is minimal schlepping to setup, and most importantly it's just fun to do!
I had an uneventful drive home, which was a blessing considering last year's deer debacle. I saw some wild turkeys though! That was about as exciting as the drive got.
Now I am home and finishing off some commission pieces and orders! I have been working out of Edy Roy Glass Gallery in the studio there. Working with fire and hot glass is the perfect thing to do on a rainy day! And boy was it ever rainy...
some of my recent commissions I have been working on include:
gummy frog cufflinks
juicy berry cufflinks
