Which banner do you prefer?

I've been trying to decide on the current banner that is in my Etsy shop - it's green and purple with a pair of earrings - the newest one is turquoise with a necklace on it. Which do you prefer?

Tasty Treat

We get these cute little Abert Squirrels up here. In the winter time their ears have big tufts of hair on them. They almost look half rabbit and half squirrel. My husband likes to take alot of pics so he was outside and saw this guy find a tasty mushroom treat. He followed him around until he could snap a pic of him. I love this picture!

Oh Mandy.....

Meet Mandy the Mannequin!

I have been wanting to get a mannequin for quite some time. However, they are sooooo expensive. I finally found one on Craig's List that didn't cost an arm and a leg! Ha! Ha! Get it? She has no arms or legs!

Anyway, she really enhances the look of my jewelry. I have been retaking alot of my pictures, especially the ones that are getting ready to expire and I will have to relist on Etsy. The really sad part is that she looks much better in my clothes than I do!

Feel free to take a look at some of my new pictures and give me your honest feedback!

Bats In Our Belfry

Every summer we find a couple of bats in the same place on our house. They like to get into this little crevice where it is dark and hang out all day. We first discovered them last summer when my husband was outside with the blower. He turned it off and we heard this chattering noise. We went and looked and discovered two bats. We encouraged them to leave and tried to put a piece of foam up into the crevice to keep them from coming back. Worked for a while but it kept falling out. A few days ago I saw that they were back - so Honey went and got a bigger piece of foam but first we had to encourage them to leave again. He gently nudged them out with a long stick (we would never hurt them). They fly down to the ground - I guess to gather their wits - before they fly off to find another daytime hang out. But Honey was able to grab a quick photo while the bat was still sleepy. I wouldn't go near them! I was in the house!

Hi Ho Hi Ho......

It's back to work I go.

Well, I guess vacation is over. Back to work. I have enjoyed this vacation mostly because I was able to sit down and finally get some bead work done. It's so relaxing....I find myself looking up at the clock and hours have gone by. It's a great way for me to just forget about everything.

This piece, Midnight Rendezvous, is one that I am really excited about. This is pretty different from anything I have ever done. I think someone really special can wear this one. It's very BOLD!
