    Shea butter works wonders on stiff leather.

    • Oh, Thank You for that tip, JerseyPearl! Harsh, cold, dry PA winters indoors ... we keep buckets of 100% shea butter around

        It will darken the leather a bit, but it will make it so supple! I am a big shea butter fan...great for elbows, knees, heels and toes in the winter too!

        • BWeaves - omg that made me laugh ! She makes a valid point !

          Good idea the Shea butter - I've never tried it. We used to use Neatsfoot Oil for new saddles and tack ... worked well on baseball mitts too
          Shea butter would be a lot neater and you can use it on your skin - bonus !

            Cathy: The bracelets came in several colors, and the different colors were very different feeling leathers. I bought the grey one because it was very soft and supple. Almost like a suede. I liked the color of the red one, but it was stiff and a bit scratchy. I'll have to remember the shea butter trick.

            I have neatsfoot oil that I use to oil the leather bearings on my spinning wheels. I'm not sure I want to put neatsfoot oil on items that come in contact with my clothing, though. Still, if it's used on saddles, I guess it comes in contact with pants.

                • Ooo La La, Red! Love Laduree- have a macaron for me! How long are you there for? Iíll be there next week!

                  • Will do, jeg. Arrived last Friday, and leave this coming Saturday. Laduree is a must visit for me.

                    Enjoy your trip next week, and hopefully the snowy weather will be gone by then.

                    • Darn, that would’ve been fun to have a rendezvous! Your erotochromic is a perfect traveling ring. Flashy, but a nice low profile so it doesn’t bang on things. And you can wear gloves over it in that snow. Enjoy the rest of your trip- my favorite macaron is the pistachio!

                      • Indeed, my ring is all of that, plus what you can't see, is that it fits perfectly.

                        I had a single macaron for dessert. It was pistachio. Great minds, and all...

                          This is a strand of SS Myanmar/Burmese pearls. It was a very special strand of loose pearls I received from Carolyn Ehret. I couldn’t wait to knot it, but I don’t have quite the right supplies, (needs a better clasp) so this is temporary so I can wear it now. The colors are a range of pistachio, golden, silver, and creamy white and the look of the total strand kind of shifts depending on what it is against besides the lighting.
