Gifts from Friends

Friend are a gift and gifts from friends are very special.
My friend Sally recently took a trip to Germany to visit with her Grand children. She brought back this beautiful hand painted Russian Lacquer. I love these hand painted boxes. This box is 1.5 inches in diameter. With a jewelers loop you can see the strokes of the tiny paint brush.

Judith Giffin gifted me with a picture of a crochet bracelet I made from one her designs. Judith recently took a photography class and has been practicing the techniques she learned. I love the detail and background in the picture.

Thank you my friends for these wonderful gifts. I will treasure them as I treasure our friendships.
Thanks for stopping

Sea Flower Necklace

In my previous post I neglected to give credit for this beautiful handmade cabochon by Summers Studio. I like this cabochon so much a third design is in progress.
Did you notice the new layout for my blog? Blogger has added a new element which allows you to create your own style using "Blogger Template Designer. I still have some tweaking to complete but I am liking the how it looks!
Thanks for stopping by. Beverly
