Anniversary!

Hello,

It was our anniversary this past Wednesday.  We've been married for 43 years.  Yep, we are old farts!  Haha!  When we got engaged we were at a Three Dog Night concert in Phoenix.  We got married almost to the day a year later.  We have a big wedding with a ton of people there.  It was great!  What my dad and a good family friend didn't tell my husband and I was that our family friend's daughter was married to one of the band member in Three Dog Night.  They were at the wedding.  We didn't even notice!  I guess you can tell where our minds were!  Ha!  After the wedding and reception we were getting ready to leave that when my dad and our family friend told us about the special guest that was there.  It was Great!  Wish we had known sooner, but the guy and my parents didn't want to take anything away from our wedding. 

SO...this Saturday, tomorrow, we are going down to Tucson to a Three Dog Night concert!  It sure will bring back many memories for us.  We are so looking forward to the concert!  I've been singing, "Just An Old Fashion Love Song"  all week!  lol!  Memories!!!

Have a great weekend whatever you do and have fun!  Make some memories for you and your family land friends!

Peace~

WOW! Where Has The Time Gone?

Hello Everyone!

It's been really busy around here in the past 7 months.  We've had 4 vacations (soon to be 5), helped our youngest daughter and her family move from San Diego back to Arizona, and been dealing with aging parents.  We have been busy to say the least!

The most important task is our parents.  We have 3 parents, my father passed back in 1992, my in laws and my mother are all 88 and still living at home, well till recently.  My father in law is now in a home since he had a stroke last spring, my mother in law did not want to live with any kids and chose to move into an independent living center.  My mom will be going kicking and screaming some day but not now she says!  This has not been easy on anyone.  No matter how much er try to plan for this, it's still a shock when it happens.  I've made a promise to my daughters that I will not leave a house for them to clean out that resembles the back stock of some old museum! 

I have been busy with jewelry making in my spare time.  I have many new things in my shop.  Stop on by and take a peak.  I'll post a few for you here.  You can click the pictures and it will take you to the listings.

New Listing

I really love the way this pair of earrings turned out.  I call them my celestial earrings.  I used a Swarovski star crystal and floated below the moon and stars.  The crystals are in the shade of crystal ab.  All metal used is sterling silver.  The earrings are 3 inches in length and that does include the earring hooks.

Need A Necklace?

I recently made some minimalist necklaces.   A minimalist necklace is just a very simple, elegant necklace.  In this case I just added one crystal or a few stones to the necklace.  The first three necklaces are Swarovski crystals while the last one is red coral gemstones.  You can pick the length on most of the necklaces that I have listed.  And you can pick it you want them oxidized or now.  Here they are.   Enjoy!

Holidays

It sure has been busy around here!  I'm sure you all are just as busy.  I had to drive into town today (I live 48 miles one direction to my Mom's in Scottsdale), to have dinner with my Mother and sister.  We had a great time.  However, I think my sister and I were the youngest ones in there and I'm retired!  LOL!  What the problem was for this evening was the traffic!  Okay, so it was rush hour when I was headed that direction, but it's also Snowbird season...winter visitor season!  YIKES!  Our population more than triples in the winter months.  I think they were all head in the same direction on the freeway as I was and to the same restaurant we were going to!  I think I'll stay off the freeways for a while, like till about April when they all go home!

I did manage to get some new earrings made.   I will be posting them soon. For now since most of the country is experiencing winter weather, not here it was 77 today, here are a few shawl pins or sweater pins.
