New necklace

 Finished a new necklace for the Gallery, I am pleased with how it turned out. It wasn't quite what was in my head, but as it turns out it was what was in my hands. I believe the beads have a mind of their own. I will try to post a picture when I can figure out how to get it from my phone to the computer.

It truly feels like fall is here, we've had rain for the last two weeks with more predicted. And the fireweed is now going to seed..way to early for me. However when its rainy I do get more things done. I want to get up to my sewing room and get a few things done in there. 

I had the opportunity to visit a local treasure the other day. One that I have passed up several times in the past. What a wonderful "Comb Museum" they have in their home. And her collection of hair combs is outstanding. They are all so beautiful it would be hard to choose a favorite. She also had wreaths made out of hair...kind of creepy and yet really beautiful, a craft from yesteryear. She was a hairdresser until they retired to become snowbirds. You can google this however when I figure out how to get the pictures........I've said that before, but I will try to have my grandson show me how. Anyway, she has some of the most beautiful combs I've ever seen. Collected from all over the world, and some gifted to her from her clients when they traveled.

Well, enough for tonight, 5 o'clock comes early.

It's amazing to find cool places that have been there but you never took the time to see. I'm sure there are a few around me too. My phone is dying and I dread having to buy a new one and learn all over again. Perhaps you can try emailing the picture to yourself, then save it to your computer. Or save it to the cloud. Then you can get it from there when you post to blogger.
