Gratitude and Giveaway Winner

So much to be thankful for..

..My Sweet big brother Bill..
He found this amazing anvil at a garage sale and after I gave a little squeak he generously handed it over to me..Isn't she a beauty..

..Confederate Jasmine..
I can smell the sweet jasmine as soon as I open my slider..


..."Polar"...
Joshua won this Polar Bear at Seaworld many moons ago..
it has remained his constant companion..they sleep,play and sometimes eat together..  I treasure little "Polar"...perhaps,just as much as he does..


..The Perfect Fit..
This morning when I came across the most beautiful round antique brass doo-dads..

As soon as I saw them I knew that they would at last complete my ocean blue beads earrings and "Memories" Key Necklace that have been in the corner of my room(along with all my other unfinished projects)for some time..waiting for the perfect fit to complete the piece....



..Playtime..
Thankfully this week I also had some time to play around with Sweet soldering..I'm getting a little bit adventurous and working on objects with fun shapes..

"Dragons Breathe" The colors in this stone just reminded me of dragons scales..


"Sunrise"..This sweet yellow glass reminded me of the warmth of the sun.


..Bloggy Friends..


Thank you so much sweet Bloggy friends..for every kind word and every sweet Hug.

Now for the winner of a personalized Soldered Pendant

Congrats Maggi!!

Cat, each of my kids has had one special animal (stuffed!) that slept with them, and was carried lovingly from room to room. Such nice memories! Your new jewelry is beautiful! xox Pam

oh cat, what a coincidence!! my (not so little anymore) boy had a polar bear as his childhood 'lovey' and he called it polar too -- a very important part of our family.......how sweet to read your joshua cherishes the same toy♡
