Happy Happy Today
Today is my birthday! I had a nice breakfast, and I've spent the rest of the day in the studio, messing up my fingernails! They look like I've been working on heavy machinery.
But really I've been working on some different closures.
Like this medal with a large loop at the top, it says "VALEUR ET DISTINCTION" in french. It was cast from an original french antique.
I combined it with an old skeleton key, with the number "6" at the top, putting a loop on the back to make it into a toggle.
My hubby went to the bookstore and picked up a copy of the Summer 2010 Issue of Belle Armoire Jewelry. I'm excited to spend part of this evening reading through it.
The article on the Faux Amber turned out well, I think. And Deryn Mentock and Nancy Schindler have articles in there, too.
I'll spend some quiet indoor time this evening looking at the whole thing, can't wait.
We're having a Boef Bourguignon tonight, yum. That won't require any VALEUR but it will be a dinner with DISTINCTION, for sure.
With some fresh french bread and Missouri vineyard red wine.
Happy Birthday to Me! A nice day, enjoyable and memorable.
