Happy Mother's Day Posted on 08 May 16:59

I am feeling blessed on this beautiful day in California. The sun is shining and the clouds are clearing. I spent the morning at my workbench making a pair of custom earring for a customer in Germany. So I was in my happy place.

I am the mother/survivor of three boys and now have a 3 year old granddaughter who loves what I do and is fascinated by all of my tools :) She is already stringing beads and has been for a few months now. I really don't know why she likes to do it.....I don't. I much prefer working with metal.

I got a bouquet of flowers from my wonderful hubby, for mother's day and here is a picture of our cat, Bradley, sitting next to them.

 

Hope everyone has a joyful, fun filled Mother's Day.
