"Wire Wrap Jewelry!"
Boy what fun it is. Every piece is handmade by me. The cross is wire shaped with lead free solder inserted, the wrapped with more wire and heart shape again made from wire. The Cross alone is approximately 2 inches tall. Every element is twisted and shaped by hand. Please check out my website under "Texas Art" for more information about this piece.

The fall has been a somewhat reflective time of the year for me. The dog days of summer are gone and the cool mornings have arrived here in Odessa. Earlier I had posted a picture of my first beautiful rose of the Spring. Temperatures dropped down below freezing last night. So after pampering my last 3 roses left on the bush, I decided to clip them and bring them into the warm house and see if I can enjoy their beauty inside. One of the roses were partly opened, the others are buds. I am hoping that they will display their beauty for me soon.....

Yaaa! We have finally made the decision.
We have purchased some land just about 7 miles outside of Fredericksburg TX.
I am so excited.! My hubby and I went down there a week ago and began clearing off some of the acreage. I believe that it is 4.5 acres. It is a beautiful plot of land, with big'o oak trees. There is a bit much of brambles to deal with tho.... Bramble is a long thorny vine, that likes to crawl and tangle it'self in everything! James' arms and legs are soooo tore up from the brambles. He tells everyone that he was "herding cats".

Well, my husband and I went on a little vacation to Fredericksburg Tx again this Labor Day weekend. We love it there.....
My sister in-law treated me to a fabulous lunch at a tea-room called "The Peach Tree." Suzi ordered the quiche with chilled avocado soup. I went straight for the dessert! A Russian Creme! A custard with fresh cream and sour cream, served with strawberries and strawberry sauce. YUMM!

Sometimes you just feel like doing something different, creatively. While on vacation to Fredericksburg, I was inspired to do this painting. It is of the Texas Flag. Acrylic on canvas with antique stain and gloss finish.
I adore painting.....

Well, it is Monday and I am ready to get moving on a new project. I listed a Persian kitty cat on ebay this last Saturday. Her name is Sassy, which fits her personality pretty good. She has a sassy/prissy attitude about her. But really, what cat does not? Here is a link to her auction which ends tomorrow, the 1st of July.
And a pic ;-)

My husband and I had returned from our visit my Dad in Colorado. The time had gone by so fast. I was able to find some time to work on the bears I needed for the Online Show Spring Fling. The weather was hot one day and then rainy and dreary the rest. Just in time to come home to Odessa to 105 degree temps. Man, it is hot here.
My Father is doing well. The radiation that they had given him for the lung cancer had shrunk the tumor, but not completely. It was so large that they could not shrink it all the way. So now it has been a couple months and he is beginning to have extreme pain in his back ribs and stomach again. We all are thinking the same thing, but he has decided that he is not going to have the needed MRI to see if the cancer has returned. Since my Mama had passed. He just is not the same man. I totally understand his feelings, but it's like he has given up. He is on two types of pain killers, meds for his stomach, and now an anti-depresent. I dont think that the anti-depresent is working yet. All he want to do is sleep. Which is NOT my Dad. He has always been a man that you could not slow down. Up at before the sun, and in the house at dark. It hurts my heart to see him this way.......
Tomorrow, June 3, will be the 3rd anniversay of my Mom's passing. I wish that I could turn back time.......
But lifes about change and nothing will ever be the same.....
