Sorry it has been a while since my last Etsy Metal Blog Carnival. I need more hours in the day like many people. This months topic is, "These are a few of my Favorite Things...." I think this will be fun.
The list is long and I could go on for days so I will try to pick out my top favorites.
Obviously my son is not a thing but he is on top of the list. I do love it when we can hang out together. Those margaritas were great too!!
Chocolate Cake, yum yum!! My birthday and my sisters birthday are both in July so we celebrate together and my mother bakes the cake. This recipe was given to my grandmother when she was young from a friendly neighbor shortly after she moved into her new house. We have been baking this cake for many years!! It is the bomb!!
As for music I love all kinds. I am a big fan of the 70's and 80's because that is when I was a young whipper snapper growing up having the time of my life. My first album I ever purchased with my own money was Aerosmith "Toys in the Attic" I am still a big fan, "Pink" is one of my favorite songs of theirs.
I usually listen to the classic rock and roll in the studio, Led Zeppelin for me is the best for making jewelry. I am lucky there is a great radio station that plays a lot of my favorite rock and roll bands that I can listen to when I am working,
And when I am chillin' these are my some of my favorites, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and the one and only BB King who just moved on to the next life.
Did you think I was going to forget her?? Never, she is the queen!! also know as KiKi. I love her little nose and mouth which I think are absolutely perfect. Growing up I was mostly a dog person, and I still am. My parents showed dogs when I was young so we always had many dogs. I also had dogs when I lived in Italy. At one point I felt the need to get a cat and I am so glad I did. I know there are NON pet people out there who find it hard to understand, but she was a constant friend when I was going through some difficult times. Of course when I moved back to the US to start a new life she was on the plane with me.
How could I not mention my love of cabochons which is becoming a drug for me!!
Just as important as all the others, I love my job, here is one of my latest pieces. A sterling silver necklace with a hollow form toggle and epidote cabochon.
