Fun at Bray's!

Al and I had another wonderful retreat to Bray’s Island last weekend – here are some highlights of the trip!

Can you spot the little herron we saw on our walk?

Here are pictures of the fox hunt we attended. The Middleton Hunt comes to Bray's every January. This hunt was not hunting live foxes – only following a laid-out scent. Here are our friends Pam and Cindy right before it started!

Releasing of the hounds!

The group leaving for the hunt! The main huntsmen are in the red jackets and lead the hunt.

Bray’s Recycles! Here is Al, doing his part!

Medici Dinnerware

One of our newest dinnerware designs - Medici - has arrived! It is an exclusive design, available NOW at Dillards. I loved this program so much that I ordered a set for our new home on Bray's Island. Everyone at the studio knew I was waiting anxiously for the dishes to arrive, so they set them out on the table and had the camera ready to catch my reaction when I walked through the door!
