This turquoise magnesite is always a summer favorite with customers. Magnesite is a combination of carbonate and magnesite that takes dyes very well. The eyeglass chain is available in my Etsy shop (also with gold accents).
The chipmunk is continuing to entertain us.
I grabbed my camera take a picture of mommy and baby feasting on the grass and didn't realize that little rascal made his way into bottom left of the frame too!
The lilies bloomed beautifully.
This is the yard bully. A bluejay. I never knew bluejays had a nasty demeanor!
Forgive my grainy photos. My camera is nothing fancy but does take good jewelry photos!
He bullies all the other birds away. Even the larger blackbirds!
He is so mean, but still beautiful.
His bulliness is why there are no other birds munching on the bread!
Feeding the birds has become almost a daily thing. They LOVE bread and popcorn! I'm learning more and more of which bird is which and the sounds they make. A great pastime!
It does feel like self employment has made me a little lazy. But I tell myself I have worked my butt off my entire adulthood and it is now time to enjoy the simple things in life. Maybe I'll become a workaholic again in the future, but for now I'm enjoying life and the beautiful weather!
Thank you for stopping by! Have a great week. ~Val
