I've been meaning to take a picture of this Lamp Jewelry that my friend Annie-Bannannie's Hunny Bunny made for me. He is actually a craftsman who makes musical instruments ~ mandolins and such....but he does some incredible beadwork too. When I was getting ready to move from NC back to California he made me a little hanging doo-dad that I thought I might hang in the car, but I already have too much stuff hanging in there. When I got this bedside lamp, it is utilitarian as all get out and contemporary to boot, but it needed a little something. Now it has bling......Perfect!

Thanks Rick.


I'm sewing this evening. (Gasp!!!)

You'll see what it is tomorrow....but since I haven't sewn in months, I'll tell you what got me moving. Wanna hear about it.....here it goes!

I have been wanting another duvet cover for the bed...the two that I have are both really light and I thought something darker for the winter months would be nice. Short hop over the river to IKEA and I found one that was plain .... charcoal gray on the backside and that's the side I liked, once I wrestled the down comforter into it. So it's on the bed, and I'm liking it, but it needs just a little something.

Then I remembered a little treasure that I had put away. I bought it from a fabric printer on ETSY, and don't throw bricks at me, but I can't remember her name. It only came in one color if I remember correctly, blue, and I'm not a big blue fan but I knew the day would come .... so I tucked it away where I could retrieve it when I needed it. "Welcome" it says.

That would be nice to see when I go to bed at night, so I pulled it out and started playing with fabric from my stash. I found a nice paisley that went well with it. And I'm ready to go.

Maya says she'll just watch. And guard me.

It's what she does best.
