A Little Bit of Heather

Connie (The Little Wool Shoppe in Windsor CO) and I are waiting on the ferry this morning, heading back to the realities of life and work after reveling in 4 glorious days of chatting, shopping, eating and relaxing in the beautiful southwest. We stayed at a property owned by Jennifer Fralick at Cabins on the Point on Orcas, nestled in the Heather cabin on the water's edge in a setting as close to paradise as you can get. I love waking to the sound of the ocean and the clean, crisp smell of the air - and no flies or mosquitoes!!!! After weeks of 100+ temps in KS, this was such a fabulous respite for body and spirit. We're already planning a return trip with the hubbies for next year.

I awoke in my bed perched among the tree tops with an amazing ocean view each morning. A little bird tweeted outside my window as a kinder, gentler nature's alarm clock. So sublime.

The artisans and foliage on the island are so inspiring. Watch over the next couple weeks for pics of food and finds - just as soon as UPS delivers it!

Now to the business of the day - the winner of the WSII charm pack is Barb, the first to comment this week. Congrats!

I've so enjoyed reading all your comments each week. Stay tuned for the Moda Blog Hop beginning Sept. 1st. I'll have a list of designers here as soon as I get home on Wed.

  1. You managed to be in the Pacific Northwest during the few sunny days we've had this summer! They have been few and far between, and yes, when it's nice, it's GORGEOUS!

  2. That sounds like a beautiful place to stay, and being woken by the sounds of birds rather than an alarm clock?? well that is THE best! Sandy. :)

  3. What a cute place to stay! looks very relaxing!

  4. Oh wish I could have gone with you. Sounds like paradise. I love the ocean.

  5. Wonderful, love the bed alcove!
