Dino BBQ - Yum!

Last Saturday was my husband's birthday and the one thing he really wanted was to go up to Syracuse for lunch at Dinosaur BBQ. Who was I to refuse such a simple request? Yes, I'd have to choke down some delicious food in a neat restaurant enjoying the company of my family but I was willing to make the sacrifice. So, up to Syracuse we went where we met my sister and father. We had a great lunch and terrific service in a fun atmosphere. If you haven't been able to make it to a Dino BBQ before and you live within driving distance to Syracuse, Rochester or Manhattan, you MUST go. I promise, you won't be disappointed.

No Fooling Around This Thursday!

This is one of the latest necklaces I've made and I have a problem with it. I don't know whether to keep it or sell it!! I really like it even though I'm not a huge wearer of necklaces. (I know, what's up with that?! I make jewelry!) It features an adorable letter pendant by Jade Scott.

I also made another necklace featuring an owl pendant by my friend, Daniele, of Thistle Farm. I was going to add a string of chrysoprase chips with some black and brass beads to complement the green glaze on the owl. I held the string of beads I had next to it and really preferred it in this simpler presentation. I'm going to add an extender to this and list it later today.
