5 Years of Blogging

Hard to believe it has been 5 years to the day since I started this blog.  I spent some time reflecting on each year.  It sure has been fun; I hope to continue.  Thank you readers for stopping by, thank you for comments and encouragement, thank you for being there.

Simply put:  Thank You

Twister Clasp

 I love twister clasps.  I have several in different styles and metals.  They come in small to extra large sizes and closures vary.  I have purchased through Ebay, Fire Mountain Gems and Rio Grande Jewelers Catalog and have been very happy with all.  They put a new twist on things (couldn't help it).

Beaded Feathers

I collect beaded feather patterns.  Just love them.  I beaded a D. Young pattern for these feathers.  Good thing I love wearing large pieces.

Inspirational Sculptures

 Love these stone owls.  They were for sale at the Phoenix Desert Botanical Gardens shop.
The patina on this sculpture was jaw-dropping.  There was so much to be inspired by.

And Now…Live At The

 Desert Botanical Gardens, Phoenix, Arizona.  The sun setting on the aloe vera flowers was breath taking.  I mean, it was stunning.
 Lavender, gorgeous lavender.
The lights come on at dusk as the sun finishes its light show.
