Good Day For a Nap!
Been working on the "stuff" for the new Etsy shop and think it might actually be open by Monday or Tuesday, latest. Sewing up some travel jewelry rolls this weekend, utlizing some of my precious, vintage barkcloths, but might just have to work that nap in, later this afternoon...the dog is tempting me. Jody (starspangledpretties) got herself a new chihuahua puppy to go along with her Mastiff...the one up there is ours - Voltron! (yes, with an exclamation point). He is the 9lb. companion to our 75 lb. Golden. Looks like he is smiling...he is really just yawning and working his evil magic on me to get me to lay down on the couch with him.
Picture of the tintype necklace my daughter, Jaci, had on today...I made this one for her a few weeks ago. These pieces are actual tintypes, from my collection, that have been hand beaded around - have a few ready to go into the store, along with some other treasures. She chose the colors on this one, and the girl, because she looked like she had an "attitude"...actually, the people in these old photos always looked so stoic because the development took so long, they were told not to smile. Me, I'm smiling all the way to that couch downstairs, next. Come on, Voltron!
