I've been looking at some new items for the shoppe in Hendersonville.



I think it's time for a visit to the Mountains, lovely weather, cool nights, a great hotel to stop at is MOUNTAIN INN AND & SUITES Right off Hwy 26 in Flatrock, Henderville NC.
The owners are American and so friendly, each time I've visited for over 12 years, they have just refurbished the original hotel and built a new one next door. It's a must stay, at a great price!!






I get so many new ideas from my blogging friends for the Old Town Market Shoppe on Main Street in Hendersonville.



Also Loving this one!!!



This is a photo of something, I've been thinking of making for the shoppe at
Mountain Home in Hendersonville.




Hope to see your there soon!!!!

SNOW!!!



I've added Snow to my Mountain Home
Blog, because when I think of the Mountains,
I think of Fall and Winter. We never
spent that much time in the Mountains in the summer
months though I know it's climate. Below are
some photos of places you'll see if you come visit the
Hendersonville/Ashville area.

Great Greenhouses

Lovely Gardens.
Don't forget to come visit us on Main Street.
Hendersonville, North Carolina in the BlueRidge
Mountains.

Something New

Something New is what am calling my hand made jewelry
I learned how to make stained glass about 30 years ago
in Michigan before my first daughter was born. It was a
great winter hobby in Michigan. When I saw the photo
of these Monogram Charms I knew I could make them.


I made the Monogram's first and cut the glass to size.
I put the Monogram between the two pieces of glass and
wrapped them with the copper foil.
Then soldered them together. I add the bezel then the ring
and the bead and pearl.

This is the photo that started it all.
