merry Christmas?

Did you have one? Ours was lovely, and snowy, too!

Now we're mattress shopping. Egads, people this is worse
than car shopping!! If you have any suggestions, please,
PLEASE feel free to chime in. Ugh. Again, I say UGH.

Here's a fun thing--the day after Christmas, look what
arrived in the mail:

After Christmas Christmas!

How gorgeous is this bracelet???! It's from Willow Creek
, and Wendy supplied me with some details:

"The large focal stone is jasper. The coin bead is tiger iron
and the other stones are a combination of jasper, moukaite,
tiger eye, Baltic amber and copper. The chains are oxidized
copper and the hook is hand forged oxidized copper."

(I appreciated her description. I'm the person who always
wants to know, "What's this? What did you use here?" etc.

Believe me, this bracelet is just as gorgeous in person as it
is in the picture. Plus, Willow Creek pays close attention
to detail when wrapping their items--coordinating tissue,
labels, attractive gift box, and ribbon. Very nice, very
nice indeed. Thank you, Willow Creek, for sponsoring such a
wonderful giveaway. You truly have distinctive handcrafted
artisan jewelry.

That bracelet is fantastic!!
Mattress shopping eh? I'm addicted to my pillowtop. It has my groove in it. I just sink into my valley, and don't move.....cause I can't roll uphill!

I need to mattress shop, too. But I'm putting it off as long as possible. I'm not much of a shopper to begin with.
That bracelet is beautiful! Lucky you!!!
