Mexico and The Wedding

I like said last month....Or I should say Sept. my husband and I went to Mexico (Puerto Vallarta) for a wedding. This was my first real trip to Mexico. I don't count a day trip to Tijuana in the 80's as a trip to Mexico... We stayed and a beautiful Villa. Casa Carol Ann. The views from our bedroom were spectacular (one of 11 bedrooms) Most of the wedding guests and the Bride and Groom stayed here. If you google Casa Carol Ann you will see what I mean. President Nixon once stayed here in the 70's. The staff couldn't be nicer. (I'm not used to be waited on). The saddest thing is that in 2 years the place will be torn down and replaced with condos. It seems to be the big thing there.

The wedding was in the Cathedral in town.

The Bride and Groom looked so happy. I never cry at weddings but this one was very special.

Coral shell pendant

Last month my husband and I were in Puerto Vallarta for his Nephew's wedding. While there one of the other wedding guests picked up a piece of a shell from the beach. Wonderful coral color. I took it home and designed and made a beaded bezel setting for her. I think it came out pretty good. I had the spiral chain alredy. Thought I'd share it with you all.

My friend Elizabeth says I need to have a blog. Actually, she's not the only one who says so. When people see my handmade jewelry or quilts or knitted items, they always ask me where it's available. And, since I don't have a website, I figured this would be a good place to show some photos of my work.

This photo of a little quilt is a sort of a "portrait" of myself -- at least a cartoon portrait of the thin self that I'd LIKE to be!

So, I'll be adding some more photos of my "stuff" . . . and more stories about my travels in the coming days. In the meantime, welcome to my blog, and I can't wait to get to know you!
