ANNOUNCING MY FIRST SALE EVER!  I have decided that I want to reward anybody who takes the time to read my blog or facebook.  Starting today, I will make a coupon available for 15% off anything in my etsy shop!  All you have to do is ‘like’ my fb, etsy shop, and/or this blog.  Enter   BLOGFAN1     on the checkout page.



I love facebook!  It can have quite a lot of advantages, one being the opportunity to run into old friends that have gotten lost or misplaced.  Such is the case of Adrian Bettevy.  We first met waaay back in 1980 or some time around that era.  Although I never got to know her as well as I would have liked to, there seemed to be some sort of unspoken bond between us.  You could say we go years between sightings, but there still is that draw.  Kindred spirits, we two?  I’d like to think so, although she is the sweetest kind of person I’ve always hoped I would evolve into.  That hasn’t happened yet, but I’m still working on it, lol.  We do have a lot in common.  We are both ‘creators’ – we are makers of things.  Her talent is far more complicated than mine – she can smock!!  And she studied heirloom sewing!!  It’s amazing, in my opinion.   I found out she just opened an etsy shop and I am as tickled as I can be for her!  You should go to  and give her some etsy love.  And you can slip by her facebook page – search for Celestine’s Porche and give her some fb love.  Here, let me show you come photos of what she can do:


Isn’t she somethin’?



And now for a shameless plug:

Car Rosary

I call it a Rear View Mirror Bracelet

  Deep Purple Amethyst


Exclusive New Design

If only I had a really good camera that would show you the true color of the deep purple amethyst stones!!

Deep purple amethyst 8mm beads flanked by gold plated end caps  +  10 mm Pater beads embraced by gold plated flower and ball spacers and endcaps  =   A beautiful combination for your car’s rear view mirror bracelet.  The gold tone center bead connector depicts the Virgin Mary with a halo of stars.  Gold tone crucifix is open work design and approx 1 3/4 inches long.  Over all length is 9 inches as it hangs depending on the depth of the curved wire hook.
I designed this car rosary with a 20 gauge suspension wire to hold the rosary open at all times, even when turning or stopping your car.  It won’t bunch to one side or swing precariously.  And it is SO easy to attach.

It’s for sale on etsy.  (
