I've been adding new jewelry findings to my shop in recent months. I try to look for items which are not as easy to find online.
Those kidney ear wires are sterling silver filled and the screwback earclips are solid sterling silver. I've also added some antiqued finishes which are popular for that vintage look. I've come across some cool brass and copper wires to make findings and do wrapping.
I also added copper and brass cuff bracelet blanks (not shown). They can be stamped, textured, painted, soldered and more for custom cuffs!
One of Jim's favorite wines is Josh Cabernet Sauvignon. So we recently went to BJs Wholesale to see what wines they stock. Well Josh wine was at the door when we walked in. So Jim says, "there's Josh" meaning the wine. Well an employee said "here is Josh". The actual "Josh" was right there for a tasting to promote this tasty goodness. The timing could not have been more perfect!
His actual name is Joseph Carr which is the name of the original Napa County winery which also creates delicious bottles.

In Massachusetts you don't need a membership to the wholesale clubs like Costco and BJs to purchase alcohol. I'm not sure about other states, but if you have one of these stores nearby but don't have a need for a membership, your state may have a similar law. The prices are much lower than traditional liquor stores!
Feeding the Critters!
Wildlife provides us with plenty of entertainment. We typically have wine and popcorn each day while sitting outside (as long as weather permits).
So we give the leftover popcorn to the other residents of the property. They love it! The chipmunk is always a riot to watch as he tries to stuff as much of the popcorn in his cheeks as he can!Thank you for stopping by. I hope you are having a beautiful summer! ~Val
