hello to you, from me


I'm wearing my new birthday gift, from me, to me! Doesn't it look like a little bit of sunset around my neck? It was made by the very talented Tracy, of PranaLight, and you, too, can see her wonderful wares by visiting her blog and clicking on the link to her Etsy store. There's nothing like a bit of handmade jewelry (handmade anything, really!) to put a smile on my face :)

It's gorgeous, Leslie, and so are you. Good for you, getting yourself a birthday present. It's much prettier than the vegetable juicer I gave myself. LOL
So nice to see you, with your hint of a smile and twinkle.

This is a lovely photo of you! Isn't it great how we can fool the camera?!
I have been eyeing several of Tracy's creations. My husband asked me what I wanted for Christmas today and then gave a possible answer: new washer and dryer and I laughed, because really that would be an awesome present! (He will pick out an angel or two for me also).

Leslie, what an ingenious self-portrait! And with the dual purpose of modeling your new necklace which, although beautiful and eyecatching, doesn't hold a candle to your gorgeous face :)
Hugs,
Becky

LOVELY portrait of you, Leslie! So happy to see you! And I'm delighted that you are so happy with the necklace. It really looks wonderful on you--a sunset to wear near your heart. :o) The colors and the overall length of the piece look terrific on you. Many thanks for the mention--much appreciated while trying to keep a fledgling handmade business afloat. Hope you are having a good weekend there, my friend! ((LOVE & HUGS))

My eyes were first drawn to your face (beautiful) and then to the necklace (gorgeous).
I love buying gifts to myself (on a rare occasion). They feel like such a special treat!
