Sorry for the long delay in posting. It's been pretty crazy here and I've been too distracted for even the blogosphere to distract me.
But this beautiful jewelry from seller Lunasa on Etsy totally cheered me up:
I call the two above her Wild West Collection. One looks exactly like a beat up western saddle and is called "Cowgirl," and the silver dappled one is named after my favorite horse: "Appaloosa."
And isn't this cute? A mushroom ring!
But this totally takes the cake. Cast from a juniper pod from NM. Gorgeous!
