Pretty in Pink

Life has finally calmed down. Thank heavens! I have wandered back into the workroom. It has felt good to play with wire and beads again. I am hoping to spend the next few weeks making my ideas into real jewelry.

For some reason, the color pink has been something I have been drawn to lately. I find that funny since I do not own a piece of pink clothing and living with three males, there is definitely not any pink in my home. Pink does make an appearance in the summer thanks to the gardens. I have gorgeous pink David Austin roses and hot pink phlox that make me smile when I see them. Maybe missing the gardens is what has prompted this fascination with pink, but it has been fun to create these newest pieces.

The workroom is calling. Back to work for me.

Happy 2012

I for one am glad to bid 2011 goodbye. It was a cruel year for my family. We endured a rough winter with too much snow and then a spring and summer with too much rain. We watched our 19 year old son battle cancer during the summer and fall, and then said goodbye to my father after a sudden and brief illness.

Here is hoping 2012 is a kinder year...for all of us. Happy New Year!
