HELLO TO DECEMBER . . .

Well, we've had our first bit of snow here and the temperatures will be down in the single digits this week.  I guess we can no longer avoid the fact that winter is here.  I kept thinking maybe it would forget about us but guess that isn't going to happen!  : /

For those of you that receive my Newsletter, you will have seen the Necklace below already.  I wanted to include it here though for those that haven't signed up to get the Newsletter (you can sign up here if you'd like).  It's a new piece but I've had the Elephant for years.  I wish I could find the source again ~ I would love to get more Focal pieces along the same lines.


'YAMUNA'

 Turquoise, Carved Red Coral, Patikan Wood, Red ‘White Heart ‘Beads, African Turquoise, Black Matte Glass, Silver-plated African Trade Beads, Red Coral, and Silver-plated Carved Beads.   The Elephant Pendant is very lightweight so, despite its appearance, this is not a heavy necklace.  Fastens with an easy to open/close Toggle Clasp.  For more information on this piece Please Click Here


"Uh oh.  Mom's not going to be happy . . . "

Another from my 'Little Sisters' Series.  This is a 10 x 10 Hand~painted paper Collage on a wood panel.  It comes nicely framed in a 1.5" deep Matte Black Frame ready to hang.  For more information on this Please Click Here



This is an older piece, long ago sold to it's 'Forever Home'.   I thought it might be a good reminder though, that 'having to juggle everything' doesn't have to be a way of life ~ especially during this very hectic (for many) Holiday Season.  I'd say make sure you take time to stop and smell the Poinsettias but, unfortunately, they don't have a 'fragrance' (at least that I can tell) so I guess it can be the Pine wreaths, trees and Garlands that are everywhere.  :)   Of course, I want you to know that I'm writing this for my own benefit as much as I am for anyone elses.  Maybe even more!
