Another Win!

My hubby is a foodie and he just figured out how to do treasuries on Etsy. Please take a look at his latest treasury. It's all about food!
Trixie is a little superstitious, she has been wearing her University of Oregon, Duck coat all week! She enjoyed watching the game from her dad's lap yesterday afternoon. I'll have to sneak it into the wash before the BIG GAME. She walked around yesterday barking GO Ducks! At least I think that's what she was saying, I am not completely fluent in Dog.
I am lucky enough to have a small TV in the studio, so yes I watched the game too. Here are the pieces I was working on while watching the game. Yes, I did miss a few plays, but that's OK. Oregon Wascoite, looks like Caramel sauce to me.

Enjoying the Afternoon Sun

I have windowless office, and these pictures make me smile during the day. I took the landscape and bison photo while on vacation in 2008. Notice where my prototype piece ended up? But today was sunny and warm,
( My trusty key board, what would I do without you???)

Thank You!
and I need pictures of my new necklace, so off to my mother's to snap a few quick pictures.

She still has flowers blooming!

I wasn't the only one enjoying the sun, these 3 beautiful ladies are my friends and co-workers. They were kind enough to interupt their daily lunch time walk and let me take their picture.

Mom's Jacob's Coat Rose. Isn't it beautiful.
