Things of Beauty

This is an amazing necklace and earring set that my boss, Marion Melville, made. It is, simply, the first set I have ever lusted for ... she has offered a payment plan but I may not be able to afford it this month. Her work is amazing, and quite reasonable. Local San Juan Island residents can see her work at Bison Gallery on Nichols Street

My friend Janet, goes on forays now and then and she never forgets her friends at home! Janet knows that I love this particular shade of green- she also knows that I have lusted for her coffee mug for quite some time. Recently, she returned from a trip and gifted me with this coffee mug. It's absolutely perfect - and is made by Trudeau. The suede like grip is washable - though not in a machine -but since I don't have one of those I have no issues with "hand wash only"!
This is my monthly silk selection from Ah!Kimono! .All of my favorite shades of greens (a thread runs through this post don't you agree?!) If you have a hankering for some luscious silks sign up for one of Cheri's monthly packages. They are absolutely affordable and are a great treat for yourself. Cheri has an uncanny knack of picking out colors just for you - grab a little bit of luxury!

What lovely things and I am green with envy for the coffee mug. I have promised myself a new coffee mug for work but have not seen one as nice as this.

I always look forward to reading your blog.
