It's Oh So Quiet

The circus has left town and it's very quiet around here now. My family's all gone home after Dad's 60th birthday festivities (which were awesome, if I do say so myself. Big props to Talon Winery ) so things are a little dull here. Not to mention it's been raining all day and I have a sinus infection, so all I've done today is finsh reading Un Lun Dun by China Mieville. It's very good, much better than the little I read of The Iron Council. I really am going to have to finish that one of these days. Maybe I'll read some of it tomorrow if it's still raining.

Amazingly I've also been working on some new pendants with the glass pieces I've been collecting. I found some good aquamarine-colored pieces that I think probably came from the old blue glass canning jars, and these look really good with freshwater pearls. I'll try to get up some pictures in the next day or two.

Then there's this from Monika Krol Jewelry, which I found at The Carrotbox:

It's absolutely ridiculous but I love it. I'd even wear it, though I'd catch it on things and break it or them.
