Spring has sprung! Flowers are blooming! Birds are singing! (And eating the oranges off of my mandarin tree!)
I wore shorts yesterday for the first time in a long time. Oh, how I missed them.
A little spring cleaning has been going on in our house. We’re working on getting the garage/studio cleaned and organized. It was scary in there, y’all. Scaaarrrrryyyyy. We’re getting close though!
What does spring bring to mind for you? Spring makes me think of gardens and flowers and wind and bunnies. I screwed up, bluggy buds. I had the opportunity to get a bunny last year. After 9 years of saying “no way, jose”, my husband finally agreed to let me have a bunny. And what did I do? I decided to be stupidly responsible and turn him down because “now is not a good time… bunnies and babies and doggies and businesses, oh my!”. Boo, Crystal. BOO! Still want bunny.
I guess the sugary chickadee goodness will have to do…
Not from me though. 🙂
Nope, from my fellow metalsmith Jaime, of Bella-Bijou Jewelry. Jaime is a fabulous artist and really sweet too! Head on over to her blog to check out her lovely pieces and enter the contest.
I’ve found I’m obsessed with orange lately. And pink. I used to hate pink and orange, but these days they make me happy.
So what do I do? Combine my new color obsession with my long standing flower, rock, and metal obsessions.
This is what happened:
Isn’t it just delish? Like orange soda on a hot summer day.
I confess. It laid around my house for nearly three months before I decided to list it in the shop. I don’t sell my happiness very easily. I hope it sells and goes to a lovely home that will love it as much as I do. I have other orange (and pink!) stones to keep me happy.
But if it doesn’t? You won’t see me crying. 😉
To the ring from hell (you know who you are):
After three entirely too late nights of trying to perfect you, I’ve decided that I seriously hate you. However, you shall not defeat me. In fact, you best stop trying. Or I will rip you apart and send you to the refiners.
You’ve been warned.
That is all.
