Mike got me earrings to go with the necklace he got me last year for Christmas; made by the same woman, Ayala Bar (click her name to see her site)
Close up of the earrings, that's actually fabric on some of the beads. Very interesting pieces, I love them!
Things my daughter got me; horse note cards; a DVD that I love, Somewhere In Time; an old copy of National Velvet; and Last of the Saddle Tramps! This is a wonderful book, I couldn't put it down! A woman back in 1953 at the age of 63 left Maine on a horse and crossed the USA to travel to California.....amazing!!! (I will tell more about it in another post.)
Two illustrations from National Velvet. This book was first printed in 1935; love the pictures in it. Love old books, Jennifer found this at an antique mall.
What a jump, what a horse! I remember reading this in junior high. It will be fun to read it again because I don't remember that much about it! LOL well, except it's about a horse, of course!
Necklace from Jennifer's boyfriend. Ribbon and thin leather cords with a glass bobble. Very nice!
My friend, Darby, who is a knitter made this felted wool bowl, that looks somewhat like a little hat! Two bars of handmade soaps that smell heavenly and some sweet almond oil lip balm! YUM!
I know I should have posted this last week but..........doing other things and didn't get to it. (sigh)
I am a little bummed today the weather here is very heavy overcast and raining which is suppose to turn to snow later on. I probably won't get to get any pictures of the "Blue Moon".....but I will try. The sky could clear up and I might get a shot; my tripod and camera are set up and ready to go.
Happy New Year!!!
