20111112, Marilee

BFAC 4/11-4/18

More fabulous auctions this week, and many have bids already!

Six necklaces: a beaded torc with turquoise, a spiral necklace with paua shell (by Lora*), a braided multistrand necklace, a netted necklace with flowers, a freeform necklace, and a bead-woven lariat necklace.

Also we have: a bead-embroidered love bird hanging, a bead-embroidered corduroy bag, and a bead-embroidered piece of wall art featuring a dragonfly. Go look!

*Lora died recently and while we're happy to have her last piece of work up for auction, we're really sorry it was her last.

Bad Junie

I think it may be because Loki never came to sleep with us last night -- usually he's in at least by the time I put the book away -- but Junie kept waking me up every hour or so. I actually got to sleep between 7am and 11am and although I'd had the extra sleep yesterday, I was still loony while I put the auctions up. Then Spirit and I slept in the recliner for a couple of hours. The laundry is going on, including the bed linens.

A WashPost columnist compared tea partiers to George Wallace's push for president a couple weeks ago and in yesterday's column, he shared some of the emails and comments he got and went on to compare them again: "It so happens George Wallace and his crowd of angry followers got there first. Not to worry. Enlistees in today's Tea Party, full of resentment, burdened by fears and wallowing in self-pity, are worthy successors."
