Fat Cat

"Does this make me look fat?"

This is our other cat Drake. They were both rescued from the pound the same day, Drake is about 2 weeks older than Dragon. He officially weighs over 20 lbs now. He is a sweet lovely boy but simply refuses to exercise no matter what I wiggle in front of his nose. But we love him anyway lol.

Spider in the Window

We have this lovely spider in the window. My daughter freaked when she saw it lol. I refused to let anyone bother him/her, he is doing a fine job of catching bugs. And yes, he is on the OUTSIDE of the window lol. That's the neighbors driveway if want a sense of scale. NOT a small spider at all!

Jewelry Piece of the Week September 23 2010

The Old Southwest Turquoise and Sterling Silver Ring Size 7

Gorgeous piece of turquoise stone hand wrapped in sterling silver for a simple yet elegant ring that can be worn for any occasion.

I like this ring. I might have to keep this ring if it doesn't sell soon lol. That's what happens when you make something in your own size.

As always, you are only a click away from this fine piece of handmade jewelry.

Day at the Beach

One of the few weekend days that we actually got to go to the beach. Mind you its not ocean beach, its lake beach but nonetheless it was a very nice, relaxing day. I am going to be wishing for this in the coming months! Oh and lest I forget, here are some goodies I picked up while I was there. Eventually, this will make their way into pieces of jewelry. As soon as they tell me what they want to be lol!

Please Help These Dogs

I know several people who do rescues, some locally and more on line. I admire them from the bottom of my heart, it takes a huge heart and, I am guessing, an iron stomach to help animals that are abused and neglected. I can't even watch the commercial's without bursting into tears, so people who can see and do something about this horrible problem have my gratitude. Animals don't deserve what some humans do to them.
One of the people I know who helps with small dog rescues posted on a board that I frequent. I usually am unable to help except for prayers but I was able to make a small donation this time. I can also post here and ask YOU to help if you can. Anything, no matter how small will help these dogs. They were rescued from a puppy mill and have more dogs coming from a second puppy mill. These dogs have never once, until now been touched with love.
Here is a link to the website, if you would like to donate there is a place on the website to do so. Also, if you are in Florida, these dogs are going to need homes that can show them the good in human beings. Just a thought.
