    Lovely lovely, Charlotta.
    And yes, it would be great to see you modelling some of your creations...
    Maybe not-husband or kitty could help?

    Thank you Happy Huka, maybe the cats can help. Not-husband is a terrible photographer, he doesn't even think about the light. Mostly his photos turn out quite yellow...

    It's so dark in sweden now that it's difficult to get sharp photos. There are only a few hours of light every day.

    Charlotta, giggles to the “Not-ty” guy you’ve got there! He’s good with hammer, nails and wood, I guess he can shrug at photography if he wants,

    Thank you Linda.wald anf lisa c. No really, he is amazing with most things except for cooking and photography. He doesn't even consider the light and mostly doesn't even capture what he is photographing in one frame. Like if he is taking a photo of the cats, not all parts are inside the photo...and it's blurry...and yellow.

    Too funny, Charlotta!

    Mellow. Yellow.

    I did remake my ombre mixed size tahitian and south sea strand, removing the greenish golden south sea pearls adding two circled white south sea pearls and some more bumpy dark tahitian ones. I did take some new photos, but since the light isn't all that great the colors woun't show properly.

    This week I have been wearing my drop tahitian and blue akoya rope (drops from Wen Pearls and Pearl Paradise, akoyas from Pearlescence), with my mismatched tahitian studs from Oceanscove. I love this combination and wears it often.

    I also wore my ombre silver and blue tahitian waverope (pearls from Pearlescence and Cees) with my pale green and pink tahitian studs from Pearlescence.

    I also wore my smallish tahitian rope (Druzydesign) with my tahitian tassel (Cees and Druzydesign), with my mismatched tahitian studs (Oceanscove) and my really long 46 inches silvery blue akoya tincup (Pearlescence). That tincup took hours to wrap. It's gorgeous, works well with other pearls but are notoriously difficult to capture on photos. The mismatched studs are notoriously easy to photograph...always so pretty.

    Today I might wear my circled tahitian rope and probably some darker tahitian studs.

    Or these dark tahitian earrings with topaz that I made. I think that the pearls are originally from Pearlsociety, remade many times.

    It makes me happy to see the pearls around your neck, Charlotta! And gorgeous goldens at that...

    Kitten was one of a litter of 7; 6 survived, and I got them all adopted by sitting on the front steps of my house while they played with each other. Actually, they got themselves adopted! They were darlings, and as people took nightly walks and visited for a few weeks, they fell in love. This was Baby’s 3rd and last litter; with help from my friends and Daughter we finally trapped her and fixed her situation. She was a bit of an independent and gregarious minx, very wily.

    I named and raised the next-to-the-last-litter of 4, and that made it harder to let them go, so I didn’t name the last babies, I just loved them all to bits.


    I swear, the more roasted chicken Baby ate, the bigger her litters were. She was also such a fluffy cat that it was hard to tell - pregnant? or plump? The last time she was more friendly and let me snuggle and pet her, so I girdled her belly with my hands, trying to guess. Each time I tried to press, she’d flop onto her side, flump, boneless, and look at me confused. What was this, painless Labor? Lol

    But! at the right age, my daughter got the shelter involved (she volunteered at animal friends) the official came by with a couple of cages, evaluated all the kittens (3 teenagers and 6 babies!), said they were good-looking, well-fed, friendly and well-socialized, even though they were too fast for me to corral alone.

    On Determination Day when the officer came back to help, all of the babies had been adopted already, and Baby was adopted with the last kitten. I’m pretty sure he thought I was hiding the babies, he wasn’t used to things going so easily. The teens were sad and twitchy, I was sad, but they all got good situations.

    Lisa C That kitty is a real cutie. Loved the photo!

    Thank you Jeg, lisa c and AzFlyGirl. Such a wonderful kitty story lisa c. We have to sterilize smallest cat, she's 1 1/2 years old. But we want to wait until after the virus. She's been tolerably good however. Our cats don't go out, to many cars, tics and they might be eaten by something bigger or shot. They have two houses to roam. Even when smallest cat is most vocal, no male cats are to be found outside. They have all been fixed. It's not allowed to have cats outside if they can breed anymore, some new law or something just before the virus.
    AzFlyGirl, you do make me blush. I will wear that combination again soon.
