For Mother's day I gave Mom this great handmade prayer flag by Flederhaus of Etsy. My mom collects hands and the flags spell out peace in sign language. I just knew she would love them, and she did. I should have taken a picture when she hung them in the trees on our camping trip, but missed the chance. Instead here is a pic of them hanging in her sewing room. Peace Prayer Flags

Inaugural Airstream Camping Trip

Inaugural Airstream Camping Trip
So, I'm finally getting around to blogging about the airstream. My folks found this beauty a couple of months ago. It is in great shape for its age. We had our first outing in May for Mother's Day/ Mom's 60th birthday. We camped at Mckinney Falls State Park in Austin, which was gorgeous. The weather was perfect and we had lots of great guests and meals.
On the same day that Dad called to tell me about purchasing the airstream I read a story about a local artist named Paige Davidson in Indulge magazine. I am really interested in her paintings and love her style. The airstream series is especially intriguing to me. Here is one of my favorites.

So the Etsy Metal June Challenge was to create a pearl pendant or necklace. I am so happy with the way my design turned out. I hope to experiment with other freeform stones. I found the beautiful gray pearl with iridescent purples and greens. I wanted as much of the pearl to show as possible and this is what I came up with.Check it out in my etsy shop. Everyone in the group came up with really great designs. We will be doing a tresury soon.
