This is the First time we've spent more than 3 or 4 nights in a hotel.
(I went to Houston to attend & teach at International Quilt Festival ((for a week each time - respectively)) but that doesn't count since I was "working").
We usually stay with our dear friends in Florida...a couple nights here...a couple nights there with a hotel thrown in between.
But we found the most wonderful, affordable place on St Pete Beach last year (Bay Palms Resort on Gulf Blvd) and ended up spending 9 glorious nights and 10 wonderful days there last month.

This is the view from where I sat on the sofa and made tags for Christmas gifts...
It's a one bedroom deluxe suite with large kitchen/dining area, big living room and a separate bedroom and bath.
Sorry about the fuzzy pictures. These were taken before I realized my camera wasn't focusing.
Here are pix of some of the tags I made for gifts. I used whatever trash came into my hand...or flyers, receipts, etc. (The only thing I bought new was a glue stick).
I did plan on 3 weekends of hitting up the yard sales since they don't do that here in Colombia.
So some of the stuff on the tags came from odd boxes of 'stuff' I bought.
I had three glorious (unplanned) days to myself...
To walk the beach...
Enjoy the room...

I'm ready to go again. It's calling me.
