Back to the winery(hiccup!)

Hola!!  First I wanted to show you the beginning of a treasure necklace that I am preparing for the last day of school.  This is for X's maestra(teacher).  She is so very lovely and patient with my little man=0)

I would also like to thank my new friend Staci 
for the versatile blogger award!  If you love to sew, please check out her blog=0)

 I made it back to the winery Sweet take some real photos.

The court yard was peaceful, since the farmer's market was over.

Here is the building that I love so much.

Charming and quiet, ahhhhhhhh....

Here is a gorgeous little shop.  I just had to take a peek inside=0)

But first a quick photo of this cute bench.

OY!  Stores like this, just can't decide what I really need.  Everything looks like I must say, "I'LL TAKE THE WHOLE LOT!".

This is the cute little place that I had lunch and enjoyed the quiet.

I was thrilled to see this little shop that is transforming into a yarn shop!!!

LOVE the glass shop!

These men are amazing.  They create so many masterpieces.  I could just watch them for hours and hours and hours.

Over the years, this little shop has changed and changed.  It's tiny and usually a business will out grow it and then move to a larger cottage.  I've always told my husband, "look at my cute shop!".  He laughs EVERY time, LOL!  It is such a cute florist shop.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend enjoying time with your family.


My other job.....................
X-I have a tummy ache.
Me-But I made a special breakfast today.  Eggs, sausage, and toast with Nutella.
X-I want to just lay here.
Me-Okay, I'm going to go eat.
X-Stay here with me!
Me-I'm so hungry.  If you don't want to eat what I made, that's okay.
X-OKAY!!!!  Cocoa Puffs, plllleeeeaaaassseeeeeeee..................

Fine silver & Sunshine

Hola Cielo!  I've been working on my fine silver rings that I will be adding to my Etsy shop.  Adding texture and polishing has been keeping me busy.  I did take the night off last night!  I sneaked out to have Thai with my Jersey girl.  

Here is a double band called, Bump In The Road.
The band is textured, but the bump is shiny and polished.

Flowery Ladybug
This one is all textured and hand stamped.  I made it all with letter hand stamps!  This one is adjustable....just in case you want to wear it on a different finger.

The whole ring is textured, but leaf is shiny and polished.

If you like the stack of rings, I can also hand stamp them.  I stamped AMOR four times on the top band and all my family's names on the other one.  This way it doesn't matter if the ring spins can always read it!

I also got a sunshine award, yipee!

Hope your cielo is azul today,

My other job...............
X-I had so much fun with Daddy today!
X-We were in the splash zone for the Shamu show!  We had to move later.......too much splashing(giggle, giggle, giggle).
Me-Wow!!!!  Even your underwear is wet, LOL!
X-OH, that was from the river rapid ride.  I hate that one, that's why I like my Daddy better.

Enjoying the quiet

Hey, Sweet cheeks!  First of all, I wanted to thank you all for such sweet comments=0) 

 I've been super busy, so I haven't had a chance to prepare a lovely post, LOL!  So, I have to say LO SIENTO(sorry), that I took these photos with my cell phone, LOL!  Last Friday, I needed to go to our local winery.  I thought I had my camera, but I forgot to put it in my knitting bag, oops.  Anyways, I bought some vino for my uncle and I was on my way.....sort of, LOL!  I had to sample the wine.....right?!  I ended up buying a few bottles for myself and then I HAD to eat lunch there too.  This little area is fun because they have farmer's markets and little shops, so very darling.  Instead of running around like a LOCA, I stayed for lunch.  I started to look around and thought......I need to enjoy the quiet.  I'M ALONE!!!!!  This is a treat.  I'm not cooking, not cleaning, and not running around like a LOCA, LOL!  If any of you ever come to visit, we will go vino tasting and eat here=0)  They even have glass blowers 10 feet away.  I just love watching them work with that glass.
Just me and my bag of vino.  I had a box under the table too, LOL!
This little cottage across the way had words written on every piece of wood.  On my next visit I will take a closer picture.  They sell clothes there and I just loved the building..
The patio was full of people, so happy I got a table.
This is a little florist.  So darling.  I promise better photos next time.  
I hope you all get a chance to enjoy the quiet this week=0)


My other job.........
X-Why doesn't J listen?
Me-She's only 1.
X-She understands EVERYTHING.
Me-True, but she only listens to what she wants to hear.  Hmmmm, do you know anybody else who does that?

Sunday tea

Good morning sweet cheeks!  I wanted to tell you guys about the Sunday tea I was invited to.  Just something about me.....I love me some tea, or maybe that's just any party with lovely friends, LOL!  We were over due my P's.  We get so busy with our families and so hanging out is such a treat.  I was so thrilled to be able to sneak out of the house for some yummy food and a little chit chat with the gals=0)

The table looked soooo pretty and here we go with all the food.  Hope you already had breakfast, LOL!

OY!!!!!  We were licking our fingers and our toes!  This lemon curd was to die for.

I parked it right here and let me tell ya.......I didn't move for a while, LOL!

This is my darling J!!!!  I love all my friends SO mucho...I really do.  This girl gives me so many cavities, she is so sweet and such a life saver.  I had to move my name card, so I could sit next to her, shhhhhhhhhh.

Here we are!  See how happy we look after tea?  J was sweet enough to take the picture=0)  We are all sucking it in, LOL!  My aqua sweater looks all crooked, but I was giggling A LOT.  I made that sweater, but I can't tell you how many bottles of vino I drank and how many years it took me, LOL!
