We're going NUTS around here!

We have been experimenting with some new techniques and look what we have done! Nuts for Christmas! These scrumptious new glass chocolates require three firings to achieve their glossy sugary coating but we think they are worth it. Don't you?

One of a Kind Gallery, Charleston, SC

One Of A Kind Gallery was founded by Terri and Carlos Gould in 1999. The gallery is located in Charleston, South Carolina, which is the home of historic "Rainbow Row".

In 1931, Dorothy Legge purchased 99 and 101 East Bay, beginning the renovation of the area between Tradd and Elliot Streets. Originally these mid-1700 homes had been the center of commerce; merchants had stores on the first floor and lived on the floors above. Neglect over time left these valuable buildings in a state of disrepair. The purchase and restoration by Mrs. Legge inspired others, and today this beautiful array of homes is known as "Rainbow Row".

These old row houses are very popular in Charleston. They represent the very first style of Charleston homes and are portrayed in the story of Porgie and Bess.

Recently Carlos Gould completed some drawings depicting the historic buildings. He incorporated the drawings into a custom design for a special box for our clear glass chocolate drops. These beautiful boxes can be found only at One of A Kind Gallery, 74A North Market in Charleston, SC 29401. Visit their website at

Geese this morning . . .

A beautiful, if somewhat overcast, morning walk today. The ocean, beach and wildflowers were much the same as every morning, but a noisy flock of wild geese surprised us by landing close enough so that we could snap a quick picture. The photo shows only a few of the geese near the edge of the Mad River, but we estimated that there were about 80 in the entire group.

It seems that most every morning walk has some kind of small surprise. One of the more memorable was when we came upon a large skunk enjoying grubs in an open area near some new homes overlooking the ocean. Unfortunately I didn't have the camera with me on that walk, but fortunately we weren't close enough to upset the creature!

Marsh Morning

Continuing with the birthday news, I have decided to tell you about my morning's adventure. This was meant to be a morning to celebrate my walking partner’s 62nd birthday. Rather than our usual beautiful walk along the trail that overlooks the ocean, we went to the Arcata marsh. One can only appreciate the marsh if they have been there, but their website and my photos may give you an idea of what it is like.

The plan was a leisurely walk around the marsh and then a stop for latte and quiche at the Café Brio on the Arcata plaza. Well, we did follow that plan, but there was a surprise along the way. My friend picked us up (I was with my trusty companion, Opie) this morning at 7 AM and we rode the brief (about 4 miles) trip to the marsh with no problems. When we pulled up into the deserted parking area we noticed white smoke/steam billowing from under the hood!!! Could this be a loosed/burst hose? It appeared that all the water was gone!!!

Fortunately one of us had a cell phone and a call to a friend resulted in the arrival of a van (suitable for the two of us along with our dogs) after our sedate stroll around the paths of the marsh. The five of us (counting the dogs) proceeded to the Café and our quiche and latte’s with my friend working the cell phone. My friend with the birthday had only the morning off from work, but she managed to contact a towing company and mechanic from our table outside the café. One of the benefits of living in a small community is that the tow truck driver agreed to pick her up at the café so that the other friend (who had brought her van) and I could return home. About an hour later, the birthday girl dropped by to return my cell phone and she reported that all was well. The car had been towed and was in the shop and she would be using her 93 year old mother’s car for the rest of the day.

Just one more small adventure successfully concluded.

Easter is coming . . .

WOW! We were totally overwhelmed with orders for Valentine's Day and we want to thank everyone who indulged in our glass goodies. We have just returned from a great show at the Buyers Market of American Crafts in Philadelphia where we got to see many of the fine folks who sell our treats in their galleries and gift shops. It is always a great delight to hear the stories of people who are collecting our work and who are giving it as gifts to their friends and families.

Meanwhile, Easter will be here soon (March 23) and we have lots of bunnies to create - so off to work we go!
