I couldn’t resist sharing with you this adorable photo of Friday, a young 1/2 quarter-horse, 1/2 paint colt. There are several good things about being back in Texas for a little while, and one of them is spending a little time with good friends and enjoying the things that are important to them.

Friday belongs to my dear friend and pastor, Brandon, and was photographed by his son, Josh. I think Josh captured a lovely moment in a youngster’s life.

Inta of Binkaminka’s Bead Therapy blogged about this Hugh Newman video starring TJ Thyne.  It was truly fascinating and touching.  It’s a “feel-good” video, and we need more of those!  If you need a smile (and we ALL do)  PLEASE click here:

Well…don’t dilly dally, go!

Darling Beauty Treasury…

I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date… Yes, that’s the story of my life. My Surf and Pearls Necklace was featured in this lovely treasury several days ago. It was curated by Denise of DCH Studio.

I love these tiny original oil ACEOs from her shop!

DCH Studio Go! Look! Enjoy!

Looking for a GIVE-AWAY…

Found one!  Go over to Hammer-Stitch-Burn and check it out.  Paige has been blogging for a month, and just posted her first 5 items in her Etsy shop today.  Milestone!  So, she’s celebrating, and you NEED to go help her celebrate! Hammer-Stitch-Burn on Etsy has some really cool jewelry, and I’m sure we all need to give her some hearts!  Well, I don’t, cause I already did!  ;o)

One week to Mothers Day…

What a lovely surprise I just found! I almost missed this sweet Treasury West with my Surf and Pearls Necklace included.

One Week to Mothers Day

It was curated by Noah's Ark Collection which happens to be one of my favorite shops! You will always find lots of cute stuff there, and today I couldn’t find just one, so here are two of my favorite items!

This seagull is so cool, maybe I like it because most of the time we live in Key Largo Florida with LOTS of seagulls, which I never tire of!

And, of course, I collect chickens! So these earrings are right up my alley!

There’s no place like home…

I feel like Dorothy, but no ruby slippers. Key Largo may be paradise for some, but I am happy to report “Honey, I’m Home!!”. After a three day trek with my Best Friend, Tessa, Jack the angel-dog, Tessa’s new puppy-Jemima, four finches, and a ton of beads, I am happily home at last, at least for a little while! Texas and our 4.5 green acres truly are my favorite place. My roses and irises are blooming, never-mind the waist high weeds! The damp soil feels good in my hands, even with the sticker in my thumb. :o)
