Found some really cute glass beads last week, and made them up into old-fashioned ribbon necklaces. The bails are sterling silver, of course, and the ribbon closure is a vintage button from my button jar and a simple loop --- it works charmingly! And looks charmingly, too, I think...
Here is my HAPPY BEE
And here are some others --- I'll be putting them in the shop in a few weeks.
And the avocado tree in the back yard is going to town --- the avocados are really big now.
And the lemons on our fruit cocktail tree are still green but getting bigger. Our fruit cocktail tree is a multi-graft citrus and is supposed to bear other fruit besides lemons --- I think maybe oranges and grapefruit and limes --- but it doesn't know that. All it has ever produced is lemons.
One lonely little lemon flower --- it's a little late in the season for the flowers! This little guy missed his cue.
N taking a look at the lemons.
