I have a new look........ blog does at least :)

I was doing a little playing around this morning & changed up the background & colors a little for a new look. I think I like it, at least for now ~ Hoping to work on some more cross stitch designs today.......but I never seem to get as much done as I hope to!!
In case you are wondering,,,,,,, this is all the beach glass I recently collected during my morning walks on our vacation to N.C. ~ I just love it......I has since found a home in an old antique jar w/ the rest of my glass collected from previous years.........
Enjoy the day.....

Girls Trip to Elizabethan Gardens......N.C.

~The Queen ~

Fountain in the Center

The beautiful entrance to a "sunken" style garden & fountain filled w/ so many myrtles, & landscaped flowers, & statues ~ It was so pretty!!

Me & My mom :)

Our first stop on our tour of the gardens, we all stopped to toss a penny & "make a wish" !!!

This was a fun little girls trip during our vacation to OBX, we decided to head down to the Elizabethan Gardens, if you are in the area & get a chance it is worth the visit!! If you like nature & flowers as well as photography you will have many great photo opts! Of course I didn't have my better camera w/ me! It is near the Lost Colony & Fort Raleigh by Roanoke Island about 15 or 20 mile from Kill Devil Hills where we were :)
I hope you enjoed them!!!
