Before The Leaves Come Down…

I want to share my shell garden before the leaves come down.  A neighbor remembered how I drooled over her blue birdbath for the past ten years, and when the base broke, she offered it to me before she kicked it to the curb.  I repaired it and it is now the centerpiece of my backyard.

It’s not wearable jewelry, but it’s kind of sparkly.  Me happy.

Can you hear the ocean?

Valentine, Valentine, Wherefore Art Thou, Valentine?

Some new fun–ROMANTIC– pieces added to my display at The Bead Parlor in Bloomington, IL just in time for Valentine’s Day! 

Oh, darling, how did you know I liked pink?

Kitties love hearts, too!

Which Valentine has a February (amethyst) birthday?

Brown is the color of my true love's eyes.

Or were they green?

Yes, dear.
