Monday

Catching up

Christmas was real nice ~
even with the last minute shopping.

As i mentioned in a previous post,
Jamie & I
purchased the Vitamix
that was *suppose* 2b
THE gift.
The only gift
to
each other this year.


Jamie went shopping anyway...
i found out last minute, so i ended up running out the day b4 Christmas eve.

The gift from him was a new
Nikon Coolpix S570 Camera.
Similar to the one i was going to purchase myself that week
but
he told me
"it was sold out."
I love this thing!
The video quality is SO much better than my old camera, and the
run time is like 90 minutes!
The photos are SO much nicer as well. 
:)
I'll have to take some new jewelery pics and post them soon.

My daughter had a few places to be that day, so she stopped here first.
She gave me a sterling silver blue sapphire pendant necklace
with  little white sapphires crawling up the chain.
I don't wear necklaces
but
once she put this one on me, i fell in love.
Something about it...
:)

i made.
her a chunky turquoise ring with a cigar band
~ she loved it ~

Other items we got her were for her new apartment.
A vacuum, towels, shower curtain etc.

I made 3 pr of earrings for family.
The Labradorite earrings i posted a while back
were for my sister inlaw.
The 2 pair below were for my nieces.
Both married with kids of their own.
Distressed & Oxidized
Sterling Silver
&
Red Brass
roughly 1" round.

 

 Both pics were taken last minute
(with my old camera)
and little time to edit
so
they're not great pics.
I do love the way the earrings turned out.


Wishing U all 
a wonderful
~ 2010 ~
