What a beautiful Day!

Yesterday, was one of the most beautiful days of this year!  It was not too hot and not too cold. The weather was just right for Cypress Bend's Wine Festival. The jazz music was perfect and for those who enjoyed the wine, it was gooooooood too or at least that is what I was told. See I had to give up those spirits many years ago.  Now, as for me, I had a very hard time  trying not to eat too many grapes. They were really sweet and tasty. Later in the day, we had a few sprinkles of rain which did not ruin the mood of the festival. People came from Lumberton, Southern Pines, Vass, Laurinburg, Chapel Hill, Cary, Sanford, Fayetteville and of course, Wagram! .

There were several vendors their selling crafts, food, honey, pottery, and jewelry. This was the first time my friends Glenda and Kenneth Neilson from D K Clay had been to the winery. Kenneth said, it was really relaxing  just sitting outside. Kenneth's pottery brought lots of attention and to me it was the center of attraction for those who had a passion for our craft. See Kenneth is a master at this pottery stuff and me, I am just using clay as my canvas. I don't have the skills that he has or the patience to get as much done as he does.  I wish you could have seen the new colors that he is making now. You'll get a chance to see them if you come to the North  Carolina State Fair (Pottery Tent)  next month. I will have lots of Christmas ornaments, holiday earrings and maybe a few everyday beaded earrings too. I just never know exactly where the Spirit is going to lead me.  Anyway, next time I'll have to have the camera ready to take a few pictures and share them with you all. We had a great time! Wish you could have been there!
