I’m Back. Did You Miss Me?

I’ve been giving you the silent treatment for a few weeks, haven’t I?  I hope you are not offended.

This is me picking out beautifully packaged Faberge Easter eggs filled with Austrian chocolate in Salzburg.

See, actually, I have been away.  As in out of the country for a big trip to Europe.  I went over to photograph lots of things.  I had my best friend for company, which was really great, and we tore through 6 countries in 2 weeks.  Phew.  I am happy to report that she is still speaking to me.

I just got back so I am trying to readjust.  I took about 4,000 pictures.  You can imagine what I will be doing for the next few months.DSC_0510 - Version 2

But I also will be making the workshop buzz with all sorts of new vintage Christmas goodies.  I am getting ready to get back into production to gear up for the big Country Living Magazine Fair in Rhinebeck, New York next month.405


If you have not already bought your tickets, you’d better get on it.  Last year the line to get in on Saturday stretched a loooong way out the gate of the Duchess County Fairgrounds.  If you already have a ticket you get to swan on in.

Here‘s where you can go to get your tickets and find out everything you need to know.  Don’t miss it – the Country Living Fairs are fab-u-lous.

Hope to see you there!

I’ll be back soon with some more news.  Promise.

  1. Actually, yes, I did wonder where you’d gone. Now that I know, I’m so jealous I could cry! I have always wanted to visit Austria! Where else did you go? Please post more if your glorious photos!! I want to hear ALL about it. Welcome back, Cackie.


    1. Hi, Pam! We went to: Paris, then to Budapest and onto a boat to cruise the Danube with stops in Bratislava, Slovakia; Vienna; Durnstein & Melk, Austria; Salzburg; and Passau, Germany. Then we were off to Prague for a few days and home!
      Are you coming to Rhinebeck? I hope so.


  2. Just got time to see your reply, Cackie. Your trip sounds incredible! I can only imagine how many glorious photos you took. I hope we will be seeing many more of them!! Not sure yet about Rhinebeck. I’m a teacher and June is always crazy busy, so probably won’t make it, but I hope it’s a profitable trip for you.


    1. I hope you will be able to make it somehow, anyway. It does not look as though they will be having a Christmas fair again this year. Nothing definite, but if they do, it will not likely be in Tarrytown – or they may just skip 2014 altogether. I certainly hope they do decide to do one becaue it was so great.
