Clover and I went for a walk in the old hood this week, (only a few minutes drive). It’s so beautiful in Vancouver when the sun shines! Every time I find myself on a day like this, in a place like this, I feel like the luckiest girl in the world…and there are hummingbirds displaying.
Actually, walk is a loose term, always remembering that if you go down those stairs, at one point you have to actually hike up those stairs to get back to the car…but we can’t help it. 😀
Briefly wondered what those mysterious white spots could be on my African violet leaves, then it dawned on me: potato starch! I started to peel the potatoes over the sink right beside the little plants…DUH…lol.
I’m starting to really love this boho, floopsy, gypsy, layered clothing look.
The more I get into silversmithing and begin to understand the how-to of it all, the more I: a) appreciate innovative designs and craftsmanship, and b) shake my head at the unbelievably high prices some craftsman ask…especially when I know that a certain piece with the $300 price tag has about $50 worth of silver in it and took about one hour with simple techniques. What gives? Maybe it’s me.
I started a Pinterest board of the most beautiful jewellery just for inspiration. Don’t you just love Pinterest?
I want a boat!
