Spring Confection

Now that I've finally turned the calendar to March I'm getting a bit excited about the arrival of Spring. Here are two pairs of earrings that remind me of the cool, bright delight of this season.

Bright pink topaz and bright blue apatite are paired with pale green amethyst drops in a hand coiled pattern of swirling loop-d-loops.

Aquamarines ever so subtly colored in pale shades of pink, blue and green dangle playfully from oxidized chains of sterling silver.

Happy Spring Everyone!

Pop To It

Happy National Popcorn Day!

While browsing Etsy I found this brand new shop and while I'm not a huge fan of popcorn (too many popcorn meals trying to stretch my meager college student dollars), this Chocolate Swirl Caramel Popcorn looks really yummy.

And if you, like me, enjoy learning fun new facts, take a look at this site. It has several tasty tidbits of trivia.

Life Saver

There are many things that we cannot control. Talking on the cell phone is one thing we can control.

Please watch and take the pledge to make your car a 'No Phone Zone'.

Working as a critical care nurse I couldn't always save lives, but you can.
