But, in terms of instant gratification and soothing rhythmic beauty, you can't beat this weather.
But oh yes, tomorrow I get on a plane for New York, where the weather forecast is for a snowstorm and maybe temps in the 20's?? really?
But, all is well. I will go to the New York International Gift Fair--which I look forward to and catch up with family and friends and remind myself about winter and all its glory.
And then I will come home.

It is almost 70 and beautifully clear and sunny here in San Francisco today. And YOU ask-why did she leave the East Coast?
But going back and visiting is always fun and I get to see all of my family and old friends--and go back to the New York International Gift Fair! This will be my second show--so I am a bit more seasoned now and know what to expect-
muted yellow, matte pink, matte wine, oxidized turquoise and a cool moss green...lovely for spring!
If you are headed to show too- I will be in Handmade Booth 9413- drop by and take a peak!

It really doesn't feel like the start of the "New Year" yet. But just the same, I like to greet the new year with some new ideas and inspirations. I have always been inspired by belt buckles. I have quite a collection-many obtained in various parts of the SouthWest where, I believe belt buckles were invented (ok, I made that up) but it seems like it because there is such a fine appreciation for them.
I love my silver belt buckles; some plain, some etched, some turquoise...and I pretty much wear one each day. And sprung right from the theory that I should just make what I need to eat on, I extended this to my waist as well.
Why not make belt buckles? so new for the new year-fun ways to hold up your pants, or just spruce up your look a bit. I am creating these in all my regular colors with brown, black and the oh-so-fun and retro white leather belts. Available now in small, medium and large. Drop me a line if you are interested.
And if you are headed to the NYIGF in New York later this month--I will be in the Handmade section-- Booth 9413--and do stop by!
