I am a country housewife married to a wonderful husband for 30+ years. We enjoy traveling and seeing the world. In my 'spare' time, I make designer handbags. Most are one of a kind with some being very limited editions. I collect my fabrics, buttons, flowers, and other decorations in my travels around the world. I'm am also an afficionado of Afternoon Tea, having catered for almost 40 years and written 2 cookbooks and several articles on the subject.
After many years sabatical, I have return to creating beaded jewelry. Little did I know how much I had missed doing this - nor did I realize how bad my eyesight has become!
Last, but not least, I am a member of Bethel Church of Christ between Dunlap and Pikeville, TN.
My most recent purchase from Harry! It's called 'Bracelet Squared'. It arrived in my mail box a week ago and I've worn it everywhere I've been! Love it! I can't wait to take a class from this woman!!!!!
My niece is getting married tomorrow and I thought you all might like to see the jewelry I will be wearing. I, of course, made all of the pieces myself. What fun to have people compliment the pieces that I have made, all the while thinking that they were purchased at an expensive boutique!
My little English garden has been beautiful this summer - despite having no attention from me. The hollyhocks came up, but did not bloom. The hardy hibiscus with the huge magenta blooms bloomed beautifully, but I wasn't able to get out to make a picture. Lest I should forget, it is in the front left wine barrel. All of my lavender died this year. A tragedy!
