Rain, Rain go away.....

I have just had a super week in Cyprus, weather was in the 80's the sea was blue and the sand was hot.
It was their religious festival, so there was plenty going on and the evenings were bustling with people. There were stalls as far as the eye could see, but also they make these tiny round sweet balls, soaked in a honey glaze.....scrummy and very fattening.

I thought it was rude not to try them !!
It also seemed the month for weddings, and there were a lot of new brides, looking lovely in the sunshine, Spending the receptions on large boats from Pathos harbour.We sat in the evenings at a small table sipping wine and letting the day drift away.

But like all good things, they come to an end and back home this morning to the wind and rain. The never ending washing and emptying the cases.
I did, however get a couple of new things made last month. An adjustable silver ring, with my own cabochon.

A sterling silver pendent on a chain, it has a deep blue cabochon set with a silver bezel setting. This is so pretty.

My Etsy shop is now open after my vacation and I will be adding new items over the next few days.
