Chosen for a treasury

I am in a treasury again. Same red gumball bead. :)


21 June 2008


I've been trying to get a treasury for my next state for over a week, now. I keep missing it or I'm not home. It will cycle again tomorrow, but, I won't be home, again. :(

I found this very interesting site on consumption. The Story of Stuff. If you have about 20 minutes to spare, watch the video at the top of the page.

Aloha Friday

This week, we have two things.

But, first, for those who are unfamiliar. See this post, also.

This made me laugh.

And this is just fascinating.

I won't always post just youtube videos. I'm also working on a logo for "Aloha Friday". Stay tuned.

Please post your aloha friday in the comments.

Beaded bottles

Some work from my "private collection". I made these years ago to sell, but couldn't part with them. First are tiny chinese medicine bottles. Each one has a tiny crystal as a stopper. They are about 2 1/4" and 3" tall.

This is a small crystal perfume bottle. It is about 2" tall. The garland extends around to the back.

Aloha Friday!

When I lived in Hawaii, they had Aloha Friday (of course, they still do). Everything was laid back, getting ready for the weekend. Relax and have fun.

So, in honor of Aloha Friday, I'm starting Aloha Friday Blog Post. Every Friday, I will post a fun thing or link. I encourage everyone to do the same, so, please pass it on!

Here's my fun thing for this week.

Feel free to link back to this post and leave a comment with your Aloha Friday Blog Post.
