Our family vacationed on that very island this summer. I have driven on that very stretch of Route 12 that no longer exists now. And our family had considered renting the blue house that sits on the right side of this photo...the Blue Canoe. These hurricane aftermath pictures all seem very surreal.
When I was on vacation at Hatteras Island this summer, I found this great little bead shop in Avon, NC. While The Glass Bead doesn't have a website, I did find a photo of their store front all boarded up and ready for Irene to visit.

There is a very cool clay gallery right next door to the bead shop. Antoinette Gaskins Mattingly creates beautiful pieces like this sweet little drawer pull...

So, in honor of that sweet little bead store in Avon, I am giving away this bracelet! The red and yellow swirled focal bead, plus the little yellow glass beads, were purchased there.
