Some cool weather and Lunch on Limoges

Finally some cool weather came our way in Florida. It made for the perfect day for my friend, Paddy, and I to take a trip Saturday up to a little town called Dade City. Charming little town with antique stores and the fabulous Lunch on Limoges.  They always have the best flavored ice tea, little muffins, and wonderful food.  You must stop there for lunch if you are ever in the town.

Christmas Lampwork Beaded Jewelry

The first selection of Christmas lampwork beads arrived this week so I've been busy designing for my up coming Trunk Show in November.  Heather has out done herself with the cutest beads I've seen anywhere. I created the Holly Berry necklace with tiny silver stars that I can fit little Swarovski crystals inside to give them that extra sparkle. The Santa Snowballs (lol) bracelet has some magical, crystal looking "snowball" glass beads to make it look extra "cool" on your wrist. The Snowman is tangled up in Christmas lights that wraps around the artisan crafted lampwork bead to the back of his head.  I made a Christmas Tree pendant with a silver star on top so that anyone can slip it on to their favorite silver chain to wear. The last creation is the pair of Peppermint Candy earrings that look like they are wrapped in cellophane.

High Tea at Maggie's Tea Room

My friend, Paddy, and I took a drive up to New Tampa this afternoon. We went to have lunch at "Maggie's Tea Room". I had met, Jackie, one of the owners recently at a networking group I belong to. Paddy and I had planned on lunch together today so I suggested Jackie's place. It was delightful, the place was too cute, and everyone was very warm and welcoming. We both had the "High Tea" including cute little cucumber sandwiches. It's a charming place and we both had a really nice time.
We're still trying to make it up to Lunch on Limoge in Dade City. Perhaps, next week.
