Birthday bling and other stuff

Whew….no more snake sightings.  And yes, Empress  Bee, being the good blogger that I try to be, I did attempt a photo of the snake…but rather than stay and smile and say cheeseburger for me, he took off slithering away and so that I wound up with Missy and the table leg in the photo—no snake.  Bummer.  Hopefully he stays G.O.N.E.

So now that Haley’s birthday has come and gone, I can post the bling that I made for her (that she posted on her blog yesterday—thanks for the reminder!):

P1010171

This set is made from amethyst chunks and rounds, rice pearls, and gold spacers.  I need to make one for me, since I like purple so much and have some more ‘stuff’ in my stash pile.

 

P1010436

For this one, I used Peruvian opals and aquamarines (her birthstone)  and a silver heart toggle.

We’ll have all the kids here Thursday night for a birthday dinner.  We believe in ‘birthday season,’ not just birthday.  Why not celebrate often!

Enjoy your day.  I am heading to the dentist office.  Not fun.  Anyone wanna join me???

Observations on growing older:

~You forget names .... but it's OK because other people forgot they even knew you!!!

Happy Monday, y’all!

LOL @ Bee and the camera comment... We are bloggers, aren't we?

I love the Peruvian opal/aquamarine combo. So pretty! The opal is such a pretty stone.

Love the concept of a birthday season.

Nothing like keeping the party going. I love it. I love the gifts you made too. Excellent.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs. :)

Very pretty jewelry, I bet she loved them. I am all for the birthday season, more time to celebrate. I must admit the snake stories made me a bit squeemish though. There is no way I would have got anywhere near it.
