Viking Knit Caps

Finally I got some more viking knit caps! I just love these, being sterling silver plated they are more reasonable. They pair well with art wire, or sterling, or copper, or brass, heck anything! I have copper coming too!

A Etsy team I belong to, the SATEAM, is having a great holiday sale. For every purchase in participating etsy shops you get a entry and a chance to win a gorgeous charm bracelet put together by members of the team.

Magic Moments is a wonderful gold fumed bead with a soft shimmer too it, it was really hard to photograph! Purchase it and get an entry into the SATEAM sale.

I'm going to be giving ebay a try again, it's been a year or so since I've put any auctions up there. I'll be starting a couple soon!

Redmand is slowly impriving

Redman is slowly improving. He's gaining back some weight, much happier now that we've moved him beside Indy and Eazy. We've had a ton of rain and our drainage has held up really well. Our ditches are all full but it is all still draining!

New earrings!

I've got some new earrings in my Etsy shop! I've been playing with silver a lot lately. These earrings originated a year or so ago when I took a class with Cynthia Archer at Amy Johnson's studio in Toronto. It took me a long time to get them balance properly and to get the last rivet just right, but I'm very happy with the design.

Austin, Texas

I am back from Austin, Texas. I went there to help a good friend, Andrea Guarino with a couple classes. I also got a chance to see some sights, we saw the bat colony in Austin and went arrow head hunting south of Austin. I had a great time!

I got home last night and am trying to adjust to having three horses. I'll admit Cruize's death has hit me a bit hard. I feel a bit lost, I think Redman is lonely too. He looks out the driveway a lot and seems quiet. Tomorrow I think I'll turn him out beside Indy and Eazy and see if that helps perk him up. As for me, I am not sure when I'll perk up.

And then there were three

I've been lax in posting on my blog lately. Two of our horses got very sick last weekend. Cruize and Redman were both out on a pasture, Cruize got sick first then Redman. Cruize passed sunday morning, his little body just couldn't take it any more. We had an autopsy done as the vet can't seem to pinpoint what's going on. Redman is still sick all though not as bad. We do know it's a toxic poisoning of some form, we don't know what it is yet.

We are in a bit of a daze, things happened so fast. It's sad to be down to three horses and for no good reasons.
