I Won!!

I won this beautiful Tree of Life necklace in a blog giveaway from Leila at Artsy Creations by Leila!!! It is even more beautiful in person, the leaves are made with bicone crystal beads and the wire is copper. It just gleams and it's really a beautiful piece of art, that I can't wait to wear!! Please stop by her blog to see all her amazing art and creations! Thanks so very much Leila, I love it! Here is another picture of it, so you can see the pretty cord and ribbon it hangs from.

Made some art yesterday!

The rest are from my stash and magazines

My kitty Pearl :D For some reason every time I unload the dishwasher she tears upstairs and starts freaking out...meowing like a mountain lion......oh it's so funny!!! Then since the kitchen is below the loft where she is, I call her and she sticks her head through the bannister with this wild look in her eyes, and you just know that when she runs downstairs you better look out! In this picture you don't see the wildness, but thought I would share it with you. There is never a dull moment here with 3 cats!! I hope that you all enjoy this lovely fall day! I think I am going to take a long walk today! See you soon!!

Beautiful pendant. Love the pic of your kitty. Reminded me of my little Esther Fay (RIP). She used to chase her tail whenever I turned on the water in the kitchen sink. I would have her perform this trick for company and she never disappointed. She also would bite through paper if you put it to her mouth. We would say "punch your timecard, Esther" and she would do it every time. Too bad these were the days prior to video cameras. She was a hoot.
