We've had a bit of excitement here lately with the Summit Fire...a little close for comfort, but we're fine. Another reminder to get the brush cleared away from the house, although one guy with a concrete home, metal roof, and 300' of cleared space lost his home to this inferno. One former Mountain Art Guild member lost his hand-built home - a very sad and touching story about this is in the local paper. Our fire season is not supposed to start until the late summer, but our lack of rain this spring has made things very dry. Be safe where you are.
I've got some new work on Etsy - the lovely focal lentil bead shown above, and some bracelets too. Come visit and shop.
"Industrial Lynxx" lampwork and fine silver bracelet, (SOLD).
"Verdi Bleu" lampwork and silver bracelet, now in my Etsy shop.
Have a happy and safe weekend, and please try to avoid lighting fires, unless of course you're making beads or having a BBQ.
WAIT! I almost forgot the most important news of all! There is a new canine in our lives, and his name is Bodie. Come meet him on his new blog. Can you believe that some people left him behind when their home was foreclosed on? Apparently this economy has made this an all-too-frequent occurrence these days. Fortunately the neighbors called Lab Rescue, and he's made a fresh start. I am a dog mom again (contented sigh).
