Green Green Green!

It is a verdant and lush paradise throughout the Central Coast of California! Thought I’d share a few photos taken by my lovely husband, Steve:

I am a Reader

Books are a lifeline, a journey through our imagination to other places, times and adventures, so it’s shocking and sad when you realize how many people can’t afford to buy them. Jenny Lawson, The Bloggess, has created a Booksgiving where people can post if they need a book and others can give. It’s awesome! Go and read some of the wonderful things people have written and the generous people who have freely given in response to those in need. In addition, there are so many other ways to give and I wanted to include two of my favorites: First Book, that helps distribute books to children in need and The Harry Potter Alliance and their Accio Books campaign to donate books to help build libraries. I really just wanted to pay it forward by sharing a way for folks to participate in the joy of reading!

Winter Scenes

Yes, California is getting rain, lovely rain! The hills are a verdant green, the skies change daily from a vibrant blue to cozy up clouds and rain falling in crazy chaotic drops, with gusts of wind to liven things up. I thought I’d post a few pieces of hand painted jewelry with miniature winter scenes. Enjoy!

Sparkle for the holidays!


It’s November and the holiday madness begins! Enjoy it with the brilliance of a multitude of sparkling gemstones, resplendent geodes, and intricate chainmaille. Time to shimmer and gleam with tourmaline, amethysts, moonstones, chrysoprase, morganite, ametrine, labradorite and many more gems and agates of all hues!    Shiny!*

*Shiny  Firefly reference people, yes? Really, one of the best scifi TV shows ever, cancelled by those-who-shall-not-be-named 😦

             -I am a leaf on the wind, watch how I soar

              -You can’t take the sky from me

…anyone?…..

All right, more jewels instead (still shiny! 😉 )

PS  All of this and more will be in Studios on the Park in Gallery 9 beginning next week. Come to Paso Robles and see all of the wonderful artists and activities going on in the gallery!
