WOW! What a long time since I have posted! I apologize for all our readers who have been left in the dark over the past few months not knowing where our traveling gem show disappeared to.
To make a very long story short - we moved our store and home early this summer. We had a very stressful few months filled with real estate issues and hair pulling experiences. All of which lead us to our new home - which is located still in Northern Ontario, but on the outskirts of the city.
The picture you see with this posting is the view you see while going up the stairs on the deck. Thanks to Colin Partrige (once again) for his carving you see on the side of the deck. (you can visit his site by going here) We have a wonderfully huge yard out in the bush with miles and miles of hills, rocks and lakes. It's quite lovely! As I sit and type this Blog out, there are blue jays, sparrows and grackels all fighting over the feed I've put out this morning. It's simply incredible living here!
Our retail shop is now open by "appointment only" as we are working from a much smaller location. What we've given up for space? We've gained by beauty and privacy.
Keep checking in, I'll be trying to post at least once a week with new photos, ideas, products and more.
