Merry Christmas

Spending a quiet day in reflection.  I made these earrings and wanted to share a little about them. The stone is glass, manmade by Italian monks.  It is simply called blue goldstone.  The flecks are copper and the stone looks like a midnight sky dotted with millions of stars.
They make me happy.  They are so beautiful.
Merry Christmas!

Keeping Him Forever

It's that time....time to clip the wings.  I have come to the realization that my incessant attempts to stay in touch with my boy are all for me...for that which I am attempting to hold onto, and it is time to let him go.
It is an odd state of being...not regretful, not necessarily sad even...just fully aware of how fleeting the time between having them underfoot and having them not return your calls.  Goodbye, childhood.

The fringed velvet peacock drape

This is my new treasure. Already my kitten is enamored with the fringe, going to great lengths to exhibit his agility and athletic prowess as he bats at my arms when I wrap myself in this beautiful little number.  Time to hit the town!

Someone was kind to me.

Guard well within yourself that treasure, kindness. Know how to give without hesitation, how to lose without regret, how to acquire without meanness. 
George Sand
George Sand was a captivator of words, wasn't she?
Someone was kind to me yesterday.  Someone I respect.  Someone for whom I work.  And it meant much.
May I do likewise for someone today, by sharing the spirit of what was done for me.
