The Bead Kitty found a wonderful home in our neighborhood. She will be pampered and loved fully for her entire life. What a great ending! And my allergies have suddenly gone away and that’s terrific too. I hired a very responsible teenager to help me reglaze some beads. She arrived this morning and was a […]

Bead Loving Kitten

Meet Moses (Precious), our newest addition to our household. My daughter was driving down a busy street near our house and found this baby in a mudpuddle in the middle of the road, too scared to move. She rescued this kitty and named it Moses, for as she said, “I drew her from the water.” […]

The July Texas Pottery and Sculpture Show (http://tpsg.biz/) is going to be here before I know it. I’ve been saving up the papers to wrap it all up. Right now I’ve got the dishwasher running, giving them a wash before putting on sticker prices. I still have to go and get some boxes. I spotted […]

San Diego Inspired Necklace

Our our recent trip to San Diego I fell in love with this particular tree. Upon returning home I googled “Trees in California” until I found it. It is an erythrina coralloides, otherwise known as the Naked Coral Tree. That’s because the leaves don’t grow until all the flowering is finished. It’s a spectacular tree […]
