I SO Agree

I couldn't have said it better myself. I couldn't put it together this well either. But thankfully, PeacoxCreations from Wisconsin was able to picture it purrrfectly!

It's not spring without pussywillows~~

She's also got a terrific shop that's worth your bowsing time. Check it out here:

Good healing and Spring represented by PUSSYWILLOWs

So appropriate for today, for spring & from me: Symbol of healing and Spring Pussy Willow Necklace Custom finishing details available, see listing

This is probably one of the most exciting pieces I've done lately. It's taken me at least 6 months to finish this one off to my liking, and now I'm in love! My only conflict is whether to have the bail on the diagonal, or centered straight on top. So I'm going to leave that to the purchaser. I've uploaded one of my photos from my beach from a recent sunset just to show why I call the color sunrise /sunset. Please take a look and leave some love, unless you'd just rather buy it!!

As if this wasn't enough, I've been included in 2 more Treasuries today! Here is HOP TO IT, by sewing grannie from the WWWG etsy group:


I'm so BLUE, by LadynCats featured my blue glass aggies. sweet!

Happy Spring & Happy Easter

Now this is awesome to wake up to! Nice spring pictures, sunshine and all of 21 degrees. It's slowly warming, but there is still lots of frost in the 'hood!

One of my fav Etsy shops, does beautiful collages. You should see the dog ones that she features, it'll put a smile on your face!

Anyways, this (picture above) is what she did for a treasury, and I have to admit, it's a favorite of mine too!

Heavy Metal

I don't often post purely personal info here, but this one has to be written. The pressure I've been under lately has finaly been lifeted and I feel like shouting fromthe rooftops. When I woke up this AM, it was the first time in a month where I didn't feel like there was a 2 ton weight ready to drop on me. So, what follows is what I wrote out last night in my new euphoria.

I survived! What a rush, it was an amazing surgery, and what they were able to do is get the blood back to my 2001 bypass site. It was rather freaky, yet miraculous if I may be so dramatic! Trying to live long enough to get the problem fixed had become the problem.Since I've had 2 disastrous catherizations in the past, they used a different procedure, which freed me up to leave the hospital the same day. I am home, so hard to believe but I do feel so much better. I just can't do anything for a couple of days but by the end of next week, watch out! I'll have one whole week to get into trouble before I go back in for some more repair work. They are going to do another stent soon.

Now to find out what to do to prevent this condition from happening some more!!

Metallic Mama.

PS: I've got before and after pictures that include my pacemaker (in both pics, of course) and it looks like a cool MP3 player! How fitting!!!)

PSS: Another reason for all of the drama, my older brother died while waiting for surgergy for the same kinda stuff, at age 58.

PSSS: A month later, 2 more stents. 1 in aorta and 1 in the right illiac. I feel great!!

I'm so excited, I've started carrying some smooth chokers in colors, in my store to compliment my pendents. I've spent some time putting together the informationa and the photos, this is how far I've gotten.

Cable Choker MAGNETIC with choice of Colors 18 inch

Colors Cable Choker With Barrel Clasp 18 inch your choice color

Now, I'm thinking I'll have to go back and take some of these with various pendents, to show how they would look with the approriate color. Or would that be redundent? Any advice?

My ring in another Treasury? WOO~HOO!

What wonderful images to wake up to! A blessed relief for my winter weary eyes. I just heard that Battle Creek MI woke up to 3 inches of the wet heavy mushy stuff, and am really glad that we didn't! Considering I'm 250 miles north, that's amazing that we didn't!

Enough winter already, I need spring!!!! Feast your eyes on this Etsy Treasury West featured by namsglam, a special friend of mine. Check out her awesome shop

April brings sunshine

I'm happy this morning, after being wide awake from 2AM to about 4AM. It was during that time when I couldn't sleep that I found this blogsite that features my Etsy store. In particular, it has my pretty little mauve dichroic ring.

The featuring blog is from a friend of mine in Canada. I've had many happy dealings with Anne, from our mutual WWWG group on Etsy. I've bought from her a few times, and I was even lucky enough to help her celebrate her Etsy shop by winning a givaway! I can hardly wait, I love her yellow spring time cheer!
