While I was in Florida, I went with my Mom and sister to the Celtic Music and Heritage Festival in St. Augustine. The night before, I was lucky enough to be able to meet up with Corinnea and Jess of Created Blissfully--yay!! This was the first time I'd seen Corinnea since she left Germany (a few months before we did), and only the second time that I'd seen Jess in person. It was just so nice to be able to catch up!
That was on Friday. We stayed that night in a hotel within walking distance of the festival, then got up and headed over to the fair grounds in time for the official kick-off parade. Some of the stuff at the festival was hand-made, but most of it was not. There was, however, an area set aside for the artisans. One of these artisans not only offered fused glass plates and baubles, but had a station set up where people could make their own fused glass pendants!
I didn't take any other pictures of all of the lovely hand made treasures. I think I had gotten tired of the camera for a little while. Now I wish that I had. There were lovely hand-carved wooden boxes and hand-thrown and painted urns and vases and blown glass and I don't even remember what else. In my defense, though, I did take about a billion other pictures that day. If you're interested in seeing my full post from that day, you can find it on my family blog.
