This and That...





Yep, Today is my birthday. It really doesn't feel like my birthday. I think it is because...

I caught Suttton's "loops". I got the temperature part minus the loops! I have been laying around feeling sorry for myself since Monday.
Finally, today-I am feeling normal just slower than usual.



I thought I would share today, a project I started back in November. I took this amazing Kaari Meng class of French General. She helped us make these rosary necklaces with vintage finds. Isn't the red just perfect for Valentine's Day? While Miss Hayden took her sewing lesson, I was able to finish the necklace. Because I love Kaari so much, I am taking another one of her jewelry classes in May.





I couldn't help but share more Coco antics. Her beloved "Chicken Little" is needing some repairs--You know the darling flying dog toy she received for Valentine's Day- I am sad to say this is what it now looks like.




Some how I can relate to Chicken Little today!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!
Oh my goodness you make me laugh. Coco is so adorable and the final picture of Chicken Little is PERFECT for your post! Girlfriend 41 is NOTHING! I think 29 was the worst! Now 50 . . . that was like "is this really my life - are you sure??" But I'm having such fun now at 51 - the hell with all - it's only a number.
Necklace is gorgeous - she does on=line classes???
Oh Golly - I take more on-line classes - it's become an addiction!
Have a wonderful day!
