Okay pink and coral, fuschia and tangerine...go together like love and marriage. At least I've always felt that way. For awhile that was my signature color combo--I've always loved they way they look--I even have a heavy woven bed throw from Italy with those colors that I got from my mother when I was in high school....now that's old school! These gorgeous lampwork beads from Manuela Wutschke are definitely NOT old school! They inspired me to combine them with freshwater pearls and turquoise for a necklace you're sure to love.

Me, Pam and Klea
Last week we took a last minute road trip to visit with my husband's mother. She had become quite ill and needed some help so we took off for the mountains of Utah to see what we could do. After our fourth day there she was able to sit up in her living room with a valiant effort, and we got to listen and watch a travel log of her sister Pam's, Mediterranean cruise. Klea missed the cruise but due to her health issues, and was eager to see every picture and hear every detail of that missed trip. When we were thru she wanted to see it again...very soon...when she's feeling a little stronger.
Lately, my husband and I have talked about how blessed we are to have all four of our parents still living, all of them in the mid to late 80's. They enrich our lives with their examples and it is especially nice for our children to have four loving grandparents. Giving thanks for the blessings of family today and every day! FAMILIES ARE FOREVER

|Just some random thoughts here....instead of making soup with my stones, I've decided to just use them to embellish my soup tureen...see, I told you I'd find a way to use them....lol.|
Yep, once upon a time I did Viking knit and I found this piece stashed away in my treasure trove of goodies, so I put it in my etsy store last night http://www.rickitic.etsy.com/ I also 'reopened' my vintage/stash store on etsy http://www.allweneedislove.etsy.com/ and added some lampwork from my stash. It's time to let go of a few things that haven't called my name for awhile and declutter. Do they call that Spring Cleaning? Not sure, but today is the first day of the rest of my life! Have a good one!!!
