Coming into town yesterdayimage

A wild fire (The Junction Fire) started in our little town of Oakhurst (by Yosemite) yesterday.
We are safe now, but we have a lot of friends still in danger of losing everything. At this point the fire is zero percent contained. It's been a hard year for California, with the drought and fires. 
Please keep our tiny community in your thoughts...xo

Molly discovered she LOVES Starbucks cake pops (look at that tongue!)
I worked on fine silver pieces.
Met up with my dad in Summerland for lunch (cute town)
Vertical veggie towers (great idea for small gardens)
Eating Sprinkles cupcakes in bed, Molly loves their doggie cupcakes.
Molly and I went to support my husband, who shot a great match this weekend!

Hope your weekend was packed full of fun too!

Montana de Oro

We spent the 3-day weekend on the coast.
We slept in everyday, took long walks on the beach, took bike rides and BBQ every night (the weather was perfect!)
We also headed over to Montana de Oro, it's a great place to find the coolest beach rocks. A must stop if you are ever in the area.

Mother's Day (weekend)

I was lucky enough to spend the whole weekend with my son. So we plained some fun things to do...Saturday we headed up to Big Sur for a little hiking. At the end of the trail the view is amazing! We finished the day with dinner at one of my favorites, Deetjen's
Sunday we woke up early and went bike riding on the Bob Jones Trail. 
We had a blast!

The Benefits!

Wow...has it really been almost a month since my last posting?

I wish I could say I've been sitting around eating bon bon, but I've been sitting over the torch making lots of beads! LOTS!
While working I've been day dreaming about adding a coffee bar to my house! I love coffee and I think it would be fun to have a spot just for my favorite beverage and look at all the benefits! Ha!

I've been making a lot of these beads lately. Organic in shape with hand-faceted sides.
They are fun and relaxing to make, just turn on the tunes and melt away.
