A Day At Black Mountain

A couple of weeks agoI went to Black Mountain with a dear friend. It was a trip we had planned several weeks ago but we were able to make it a dual visit because we had posters and postcards for the upcoming Flat Rock Playhouse Craft Show with us. So we visited shops and galleries and the arts council and while looking at lovely things, passed along our posters. I don’t believe I’ve ever encountered a friendlier town. Here we were, in a store that sells the same kind of craft items that our show will sell and they graciously and enthusiastically accepted the posters to post, the postcards to display. What lovely, lovely people we met in that small town.
Our lunch at "The Veranda" was wonderful as was the oh so delicious gelato we treated ourselves to later on.

I was lucky enough to find a couple of treasures in the shops we visited.  One of them I'm saving for another posting because I'm hoping that it will become part of an ambitious bead project.

All in all, a lovely day with a lovely friend – sharing and laughing and encouraging each other.
