Did you wink at the moon tonight?  That’s what the news agencies are asking this evening.  America lost a very special hero today…someone who has done the unthinkable…accomplished a quest that will never be replicated.  Neil Armstrong, the first man to set foot on the moon, left us today at 82.  An humble man, he shied away from cameras, saying his accomplishment was one of thousands, not just of his own. Seriously, think of all you’ve accomplished.  All you could hope to accomplish in your lifetime… However, where do you go once you’ve walked on the moon?  What do you...

I had such a great time at the June 14th trunk show at the luncheon held for the ladies of Barton Creek Country Club.  What a fun afternoon!  Ladies shopping with champagne in hand...can't beat it.  I met so many lovely people and really enjoyed myself.  Looks like I'll be back there for a trunk show on July 31st and tentatively on July 3rd.  There will also soon be several pairs of my earrings in their boutique, Eliza's.  Barton Creek is my new BFF.I've been so busy working on new items for the shows and a few custom orders that...
