Farewell Blue Ridge Mountains

As I think you've seen all week with the entries and photos it was a great trip to the mountains.  So I'll wind it all up today with some more photos and tidbits.....The owners of the cottage had 80 acres of land on their property.  Their side yard was filled with 2 llamas and 12 sheep, plus 4 gorgeous horses.  Here's some of the photos I snapped, with their home in the distance......







And below are some of the treasures I took home from Floyd.......



Whenever I travel, I always manage to come home with at least new candles and some kind of aromatherapy.  So here are the beautiful candles I found, some Secret Boxes (I was enchanted with those) a bottle of Pine Needle Oil (which smells just like the mountains right here in my studio when I burn it) three beautiful pieces of handmade pottery and a piece of citrine and floride.  I keep my crystals and gemstones here on my desk to inspire me when I write.  So now I feel like I brought back some of the Floyd area right here to my studio and I can be surrounded by the energy I found there. 


The day I arrived home I received the cover letter from the evaluator for my manuscript.  So join me tomorrow and I'll share with you what she had to say.  See you then.......

Those are my friend Jayn's pottery pieces! The once with the lacey inlay. I've written about her..."stored in featured artist."

Oh wow...I just searched her name on my blog. She's all over the place! Photos too.

These are such wonderfully BEAUTIFUL goodies, Terri...I love crystals and gemstones, too....And those candles are so very pretty I don't think I would ever burn them...(lol)
I cannot get over that your landlords have a Llama...! Horses, of course, but a Llama as well....Floyd is constantly surprising, isn't it?
Wonderful trip you had and so lovely that you took us with you, so to speak.
