Mardi Gras Beads, Bread Pudding & Jewel's Sugar Cookies




















Okay, it was my sister Debbie's birthday, so she came to town to have lunch and see a movie! We went to Babin's and had some of 'dat Gumbo & then the waiter had on one of those fancy Mardi Gras necklace's, and being a looker (of jewelry) I said I liked the necklace, because of the little Pig Chef Beads it had on it! Well, that was before I had my glasses on!!!!!!!!!!
Then, I told him that it was my sister's birthday today, so guess what? He brought her some Birthday Bread Puddin'! Yummeeeee! Let's just say we had a BIG Time!
Oh, and I had to try baking Jewel's Sugar Cookies, as these are Debbie's favorites. The long lost recipe was found (by Debbie a couple of weeks ago). Mine were okay, and of course, Jewel's were the best! Deb did give me some additional pointers for my next batch though.
Happy Birthday Big Sister..... and many many more!

Bamboo and Swarovski

An unlikely pair, but I'm always trying to find the perfect shot for one of my newest RJ's Jewelry Shop pieces! Bingo.....or Bamboo! Bless you!
Swarovski really shines in the most unlikely places-even lying in a bamboo tray, sitting on the butcher block in my kitchen!
Just imagine what it would look like around your neck........picking up that warm glow of the flickering candlelight coming from your table, sitting next to the one you love!
Hope you all had a very happy & sweet Valentine's Day!

Cheetah Print Art Beads

I loved these beads the first time I saw them...and so have a few other people, as I continue to sell every item I make using them! This necklace has turquoise rondells, with carved bone beads and small burnt wood chips tossed in for good measure....oh yes, and red aventurine rectangle gemstones. The earrings are lying right dab in the middle of this double strung necklace! This set is quite special to me, so I will put it on RJ's Jewelry Shop this weekend.

New Banner

All weekend I've been preparing for a show tomorrow....but I've also made new jewelry, new business cards, new tags and I've put up a new banner on my Etsy Shop.
After the show tomorrow, I will be adding more jewelry to my Rosa & Josie's Etsy Shop!
I am pumped!
