Serious Withdrawl!

Okay, this is a very serious matter. Don't think I'm kidding, I am having pinkberry withdrawl. It's no joke. Why, why for the love of dog is there not a pinkberry in Austin?!?!? I mean for real! I want my medium-original-3 topping-rasberries-almonds-coconut pinkberry! For those of you who have not had the pleasure - you have to go to New York or California to get one - how sad is that?

So here's a picture of me eating my first pinkberry of my recent trip to the city. Looky, you can see my bangles in the photo. Okay, now back to the pinkberry. My hubby likes the captain crunch and fruity pebbles on his...I'd like to try some other toppings but I can't get away from the berry, nut, coconut toppings. Ahhhhh, well. I suppose I've gone on long enough. You might not be able to get a pinkberry, but I know where you can get your hands on some of those cool bangles! *wink wink*

ahhhhhh New York!

This city makes me smile at every turn. The other morning after breakfast we went to the Union Square Green Market and there were THE most beautiful flowers and fress fruit and veggies. It's 55 degrees or so, flowers are blooming everywhere - the food in this city is ridiculous! It's a good thing you have to walk everywhere. i swear I could eat my weight in Magnolia cupcakes - red velvet please! I've got all kinds of ideas for new work and can't wait to get started...

Brand Spankin' New!

So I have this friend, I won't name names, but Charlotte, you know who you are! Anyway, we met years ago when she and her husband adopted a dog from me (Haley - the first of the three dogs in the charms). Since we've known each other she has been a great supporter of my work. She often comes up with ways to tweak something in my line to make it more personal, more "her". It's awesome because it makes me think outside the box. Her most recent "want" was photos of her three precious dogs (Haley, Boulder, and Charlie - all rescues I might add!) in resin. So here's what I came up with. And I sure do love it if I do say so myself! These are becoming a part of my custom line for sure! You could do ANYTHING! Photos of pets, kiddos, your sweetie, fancy initials, old black and white family portraits, kids artwork...the skies the limit. They are sterling silver 16x16 mm squares with a heavy sterling silver bail. Look for them soon on http://www.metalsgirl.com/
