Those who allow their day to pass by without practising generosity and enjoying life's pleasures are like blacksmith's bellows: they breathe but do not live.
This week I started a new practice called Word for the Week, and this week's word was
which seemed rather appropriate for 13 weeks' of gifting to mark my 50th year :-)
Don't you just love synchronicity??
And here's Giveaway 3 - a very unusual, fun necklace
It's made from hand-forged, oxidized sterling silver and leather by Susan Richards at Studio410, and here's a close-up.
The hand-stamped words read, 'The second star to the right' from J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan - directions to Neverland, and there's a handmade green glass bead hanging from a silver curlicue, and a wee crystal attached to a wire-wrapped heart. The pendant elements hang from a 1-inch silver bar attached to a leather cord with a handmade silver hook. The necklace measures about 19".
It's a very lovely, highly unusual piece which deserves to be worn and enjoyed, so again I wish you GOOD LUCK!!
