Coco Chanel....

is doing great, as still appears to be a hen (so far!):She's getting her big-girl feathers, but still has some down on her head. Makes her look a bit funny. Don't tell her I said that, though :) She loves to "roost" on me--I think she thinks I'm her mama.

The plants around my home are doing well so far this spring. I put these in last year about this time. Glad to see they decided to come up again:
These just got potted yesterday:My Gramma J always had the Hen & Chick plants, so I got one in her memory. Now if the bunnies stay away from it, that would be nice.

And finally-----this Saturday and Sunday I'll be beading with Sherri Serafini. A couple of the combos I have picked out:
I have several small boxes of color palettes like these ready to go, just to make sure I have the right things with me. Beading away from my studio is hard these days. I'm so used to having everything within arm's reach! Maybe I should just pack up my entire studio?

and trying to perfect my "birdie" buttons: They're not quit there yet, but getting close :)

And I'm working on an extensive Etsy update for Sunday. Stay tuned for sneak peeks!!!

New Bead Mix....

is ready:Kind of "Boho Americana", if I named the mixes. Which I don't. Just sayin' :)

On another note--I'm having a garage sale this weekend!! Friday and Saturday, 8:00 until I'm tired and shut the garage door :) I'll have new seed beads out and also, since I don't have the tins yet--take $1.00 off each baggie of this new mix!! Come see me, why don'tcha? E-mail me for my address. Link to the right of your screen :)

Beads and chickens...

are about all that's going on around here!! New shipment of seed beads has arrived:Yummy colors------delicious!!

And then there's the chickens. Henrietta unfortunately turned out to be a Henry. So he's going to live at a friend's farm, outside of town. Lucky to have found him a home---thanks, Nan!!! Here's Esme:
Cutie-patooties. Esme has a new friend, Coco, that I certainly hope turns out to be a hen :) Pics of her at a later date.

New necklace....

will be at auction next month for the Girl Scouts of America: No clasp yet, I'm trying to decide if the layout is working for me or not before I crimp it :)
