New Addition to the Family and Shop Update

This is the new addition to mom's family, Zola.  Yesterday mom and I went to the shelter (big mistake I know).  Mom likes to go to the shelter because it makes her feel better after playing with the kitties.  Well, this one caught both of our eyes!  You can't see it, but Zola has a red patch of hair on the top of her head that reminds both mom and me of my grandma Mert because grandma had red hair.

I have to say mom was really good and didn't get Zola yesterday, but I sure didn't help mom today.  I asked her if she wanted to go back to the shelter and see if she was still there and mom said yes.  If Zola was there then it was meant to be.

Zola was there and home she came with mom.  Needless to say mom is going to have to keep her separated from the other cats and slowly introduce her to them.  Sasha was having a hissy fit and Lily is not going to be happy being locked out of mom's room for the next few weeks.

But she is totally worth it - look at that face!!!  I so wanted one of her brothers but my brood would have gone totally insane if I brought another baby home.  Instead of one cat on Prozac I would have to put them all on it.  Oh well.  I get to play auntie to this one when I come over at night and on the weekends - so worth it!

Okay, shop update.  I finally opened up the shop and took out the bowls and necklaces.  Currently there are only pendants out there.  I am still working on the beads and the Viking Knit.

Here are the new pendants I posted on Etsy.

I also have three more sets of beads made up - though the raku/copper set still needs a few more beads made up before I can list them.

These are the beads I still need to make a few more to add to the set.

I am so in love with these beads.  I am calling them "Foggy Morning".  It is a transparent gray glass with an unknown frit on top.  It was one of the bottles of frit that I purchased from Sandi earlier this year.  I have found the manufacturer and I think I have found the frit, so I guess I am going to have to go shopping for me.

I am going to have to work on taking a better picture of these beads.  You can't tell the glass is a mint green and the frit on top of it is divine!

That is it for today.  I am exhausted and plus I want to go play with the kitty.  Have a great night and a great week!
