Saratoga Springs Weekend Trip, A Beader on the Road

I took my beads on the road this weekend, and tagged along with my Dad to an American Institute of Architects Convention in Saratoga Springs, NY.

After four years of living in Savannah, I feel like I am experiencing fall for the first time. With every crunch of the leaves under my boots, and every beautiful, vibrant tree next to a distinguished old house, I remember of how much I truly love fall.

I had the opportunity to relocate my studio to a great cafe, Uncommon Grounds, in downtown Saratoga, and bead my heart out over a cup of coffee roasted in-house. 

Later in the trip, I joined my Dad on a ghost tour. We have not been on a ghost tour since I first visited SCAD as a junior in high school. Savannah is one of the most haunted cities in the United States, and there is not one person I know that has not had an experience with a ghost. We also toured of a 150 year old Adelphi Hotel that is being completely redone. 

Take a look at the renovations in the link below. A lot has changed since the article was written but it gives a nice over view.


It was a great weekend, take a peak at the beautiful fall foliage and stay tuned for new designs straight out of Saratoga!
