A few more random pictures....

New Seabury, Cape Cod.....
on the shores of Nantucket Sound
Here are some random pictures of our trip last year... yesterday I mentioned we decided on our week for this summer, but failed to mention the beautiful place we stay...
Maushop Village in New Seabury, Cape Cod

It is a perfect place for families to visit.. there is a Marketplace that you can walk to that has a Raw Bar, Ice Cream Shop, Grocery Store, gift shops, Bike Rentals, Miniature Golf and much, much more....New Seabury is a resort community that also has a beautiful golf course, a wonderful country club type restaurant and honestly, I cannot say enough about it.
We have been going there for 14 years now, with the exception of one year that I had just had a baby.
This year we have enticed our friends to join us.. I am sure they will not be disappointed! If you are looking for a great place to have a family vacation, please don't hesitate to visit
Hope to see you there!

Going Coastal!

We are so excited!!.... We just mailed our deposit for our week in Cape Cod this summer at this beautiful cottage...Although it is so far away, I love to look at this picture and dream of the sounds and smells of the ocean... Which makes me also think that the buying season for all the shops Coast to Coast .. is in high gear to get ready for the Summer tourists that are about to embark on the towns near the oceans....

We have Solid Colored Glass in all the summer colors, including clear... many of our customers that craft, put sand and small shells inside the clear ornaments to make a fun summer display..

We also have our Oberfrankische German Glass in many styles of Nautical themed ornaments. My favorite thing to do on vacation is to purchase an ornament that will always remind us of our visit...

We also have many nutcrackers from Zim's with the Nautical theme ....perfect for those shops along the oceans edge...

Another favorite thing we do in Cape Cod is to take the Whale Watch tour with our cousins.. a long day on a boat, but nothing beats the view of such a large mammal so close to us..
So everyone needs to get out there and make their summer plans.. which should always include a day of walking into town and checking out the local gift shops...

Winter Break!

I took some time off from work this past week and spent it with my three girls... I think we had the busiest week ever! We had 2 of my girlfriends from college come in to visit with their kids for a few days. We went skiing, sledding, ate and had cocktails for 3 full days. We are exhausted. So many laughs and good times.. and I can't wait to do it all over again.
Although I am off from physically going in to work.. I am still working... sending out emails, blogging, tweets on twitter and making calls. So, while I am "off" from work I thought I would mention, the Bauble Heads above, by Natalie Sarabella. They are made from The Whitehurst Company's glass ornaments and embellished beautifully by Natalie.
This new line is perfect for the gift shops that need those quick hostess gifts. So many different styles with so much personality! One for each of my girls!

Valentines Day is Near.. Perfect time for the Pantone Color of the Year!

Happy Valentines Day - Weekend!
We found out today that any available tables for dinner reservations at restaurants in Rochester, for Saturday night, are few and far between. My husband tried to make dinner reservations for us on Saturday and we could not get in to our first three choices. Well, we could, but at 8:30 or 9:00 sittings. (In case you didn't know yet, the restaurants are considering Saturday to be "the" night for Valentines Day dinners.) Somehow, it all worked out and our first choice called us back and we are sitting for dinner at 7pm. Yeah!
Another thing to be happy about is this years Pantone Color of 2011 - Honeysuckle..
