Here is the fabuous bead soup mix that I received from my partner Bonnie at Jasper Gems... just love the pretty vintage blue beads and the brass findings..especially the large hand-forged brass nugget focal... I am going to have to think of something extra-special for these babies!!!
'Ode to Orange'
I love the orange and lavender colours together.... It was fun making the head-pins too!!

Busy studying for my boat exam... all boat operators have to have a licence from the government...(my husband thought I should get the licence in case I get to drive the boat.... not much chance there!!!! It is a bit intimidating!!!!)
So far I have spent 10 hours doing an on-line course...I can see another 5 or 6.
Waiting for my bead soup mix to arrive in the mail... should be here some time this week....

Took a glance out of my dining room window the other day .. just in time to see these beautiful creatures!!! We are so lucky to be living where the wild animals can roam freely....they don't seem to be at all bothered by us 'humans'.
Life is good!! the sun came out last week and we are having glorious SUMMER weather.... nice and HOT..although we have a lot of smoke hanging around from the Colorado fire and even some smoke from fires burning in Siberia!! of all places.... We have had a few fires here ourselves but the big plane that drops the fire retardant was on them super fast.... so they didn't amount to much... we are going to be on the Extreme fire danger alert by this weekend though!!
