Gorgeous Greek Ceramic Bead Designs

I love color and these two creations are color intensified! Stacy who has a shop on Etsy called StacyGarrettJewelry makes the most luscious earrings. In this shop she makes just earrings, and did I say earrings! Tons of earrings! And, I mean tons! She has a wonderful sense of style and color and it shows in her creations. I love cruisin through her shop just to look at all the different colors! She is also opening another shop that is going to be necklace and earring combination's. I'm looking forward to seeing what the necklaces are going to look like!

Our New Family Member - Lucy

This picture isn't the best, I took it with my phone, but it is Lucy having Acupuncture. And, that brings me to who Lucy is. She was rescued by the Austin/San Antonio Cocker Rescue and we adopted her a month ago. We don't have all the past info on her, but from x-rays the Vets could tell that she had broken her leg and it had been wired. At some point the wire broke and was poking her which made her stop using that leg. When the Austin/San Antonio got her they then had the wire removed. She now has an issue because she hasn't used her leg for so long that she has arthritis in her joints and her mind tells her that she shouldn't be walking on the leg. But, we did notice that when she ran she did put her leg down a lot more.

So, that brings us to her seeing a vet in our area that does Chiropractic and Acupuncture. What was funny is that Lucy discovered that if she can get up she can shake all of those needles right off of her body! So now, we have to keep her occupied so that she won't want to get up.

Lucy has been so much fun having around and she is getting Lady, our other Cocker to get up and move around. Maybe even a bit of chasing around the house!

Mykonos Creations from an Electric Penguin!

The first thing you notice when you enter Pam's shop The Electric Penguin is what a cooool banner she has! Next come her creations which are very colorful as you can see from the two examples displayed here. One of the creations not shown here are these really colorful cuff bracelets that have beer labels wrapped around the wooden beads. Different! These two creations that are portrayed here are two examples of how she incorporated the Greek beads into her designs. Gorgeous creations in my opinion! Check out her shop on Etsy and be prepared for lots of color!!
