Today I spent the day mainly playing mediator between my dog (Tax) and my bird (Gumba). Tax has decided that would be fun to try to bite her tail, and Gumba just would like to beak him if he would just get close enough to her.
Gumba enjoys sitting on her perch in my work studio keeping me company and making her bird noises. She used to talk a lot more, but her lack of interaction has made her somewhat quiet and not herself. I'm hoping that by keeping her with me during the day it will get her talking again. I have had Gumba for 15 years. It's funny how long a parrot can live. They can actually live as long as a person depending on their health. I really didn't know that when I got her, but I'm happy to have her.

With everybody now having spring fever, I thought it was a great time to create a new necklace depicting a flower. I really love flowers, and I don't really have one particular favorite. I really do love giant zinnias. It is the perfect time of the year to take a drive a see so many beautiful colorful flowers in people's yards. Well it will soon be everywhere, but not yet. So I have these visions in my sleep when I have an idea on my mind that I wan t to create. I know, it's silly, but true. I have some pastel seed bead assortment strands that I thought would be the perfect start to this necklace. I wanted to create a pendant on it that looked like a vine of flowers. So here is the necklace that I came up with. I really like it and thought it would be perfect for the etsyBEAD theme of the week, which is "Spring Bouquet". So the bonus is that it's also on sale for the debut in my shop.

Well, it Sunday and it's time for the new theme of the week sale. This week the etsyBEAD team theme is Spring Bouquet. I really have quite a few pieces of jewelry that are suitable for this theme. So, I decided to limit this sale to 8 pieces of jewelry but offer 25% off of these jewelry items. I normally only offer a discount of 15% to 20%. I thought I would try something different this week. So I have a variety of earrings, a necklace, an anklet and also a bracelet set. All of these sale items can be found in my Sale Section.
Thanks for taking a look, and don't forget to stop by next week to see the new sale of the week.
