“Longing for Sunshine...”


Description from J Yee smart chick: The lovely gray/yellow Jangles butterfly pendant I came across tonight while browsing the crossword puzzle beads made me think of how much I long for warmer temperatures and sunshine - we have been having lots of gray skies and rainfall in the past couple of months, and this week, we have been having some lovely but freezing sunshine, along with heavy fog - sigh... wishing for spring also - :(

    The black shell is perfect with your butterfly. The little Jangle bumblebee has been on my wish list forever! Too cute but no design idea for him.

    Thank you everyone – I should count my blessings re – Pacific NW weather, though – a year ago, we had a week of snow that caused many schools to shut down for the week – partly because our local governments don’t have the snowplows needed to really get streets and bus routes clear – and we also don’t feel confident about driving in snow, and say things such as “well, we have a lot of hills here…”, compared to other areas – one of my co-workers is originally from upstate NY, and she said that the schools there hardly ever closed due to snow!

    A delightful spring inspired pick! A real mood lifter. I might be tempted to add just a few of the new chartreuse & pewter crystals! :)

    Congratulations on your POD. I was hoping it would make it. Your bumblebee is in my bag as as the yellow agate diamonds. I see a bracelet floating about in my brain with a “charm”ing little bee dangling from it.

    I never noticed how pretty that gray butterfly was before, and the shells capture the irridescence of butterfly wings. Scrumptious yellows and beads–very cool! Congrats on POD.

    Aaahhhh, I’m so excited, POD, wow, thank you and hugs to everyone also – this one is STILL all too true for the Pacific NW – we still are having gray skies and rain, although this morning as I was on my way to work, I saw the most beautiful multi colored sky – gotta do a Pick for it… ;)
