Yesterday's mail brought a totally unexpected handmade gift from my friend, Daphne (no blog). Among other things, Daphne is a whiz at making jewelry! She and her husband visited us at the Squash House last September. We were talking about beading and I asked her if she would like to look through some beads I had that I knew I would never use. Little did I know, some of those beads would come back to me in the form of this beautiful necklace!
The colors are mostly shades of purple with the larger beads looking like pearls almost in a sort of blue/gray color.

Here is another necklace Daphne made for me a few years ago. ( I photographed these on the same table - why the oak looks different is beyond me!)
I just love the yellow heart that hangs from this one! Daphne's talents include beading, quilting and floral design which is her "real" job! She decorates weddings and also has clients who have her decorate their houses seasonally! Thank you so much for this wonderful surprise, Daphne!
I frequently use the "Post Options" on Blogger. It allows you to set your post to publish at a later date. More often than not it will turn my posts from "scheduled" back to "draft" and not post unless I do it manually. Has this happened to anyone else? Does anyone have a solution to this?
