TUESDAY TALE: TREASURES

WARNING:  
I am going to tell a tale....get comfy, grab a beverage and some foodables!!  Just Sayin'

Once upon a time a long, long, long ago before Mom retired she  used to wear dresses had a dress.  She decided to she didn't like the dress any more but she did like a piece of *pendant that came on the dress.  She cut if off the dress and forgot about it stored it away.  Then one day she said to herself (she does that a lot), I ask 
Kathy, our most talented friend, if she could make me a necklace out of it.  Upon receiving the picture, Kathy said yes indeedy she thought she could so we mailed it to her way out in O-Re-Gon.

*This is a picture of the piece of jewelry.
Fast forward a few weeks and lo and be hold Kathy had come up with a way to make it into a necklace AND  she made earrings and a bracelet too.  Fast forward to June 1...not** Earl our mailman 
delivered a package and OMF (oh my friends) I helped Mom
open it.   Kathy good idea to  including 'instructions' in the package 'cause sometimes Mom is not the sharpest knife in the drawer. 

With the help of my cat  eyes she was able to properly assemble the
pendant onto the gorgeous black crystal beads.
BUT then she held it up to my face and I said 
gimme Mom that is mine.
Mom that is simply gorgeous let me look a little closer

I became mesmerized  by the shiny beads and the pendant as it swayed back and forth.  I do wish I liked to wear collars because 
Kathy also makes collars for puppies and kitties.
But alas I don't so I'll just admire all of Mom's jewelry 
hand made by Kathy.
FYI:  Kathy told Mom she didn't have light colored beads that matched the pendant.  Being the clever lady that she is, Kathy soaked the light beads in tea until they took on the same bone color as Mom's pendant. FYI: they are a purrfect match!!
THANK YOU KATHY FOR MAKING MOM SQUEAL LIKE A LITTLE GIRL.

**For many years my peeps thought our mailman's name was Earl...but it isn't, it is Tony
so now they call him NOT Earl.  You see what I put up with on a daily basis?!


THE END
AND I THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDIVIDED ATTENTION.
Hugs,
MADI

  1. Wow, that is just lovely, Madi. It would look great upon your chest, too, but I unnerstand the "au naturale" look, as it is what we all prefer too. I too sympathize with you about havin a Mommy that is not the sharpest tool in the shed. MOL! But, they are good Mommies. (cod luf em) XOXOXO from your BFFF - Prancer Pie

  2. Oh wow, that is so pretty. Ms. Kathy really outdid her self with these pieces. The pendant is beautiful with the black crystal beads. Our mom would have squealed like a little girl too if she saw that.
    Madi, we thinks we would be mesmerized by the shininess of those beads too.

  11. well, you certainly had my undivided attention. wonderful story, maybe you should publish it With pictures of this beautiful creation. now lets seem Mom dressed up modeling the jewelery. NOT a dress, pants will do. i have 4 dresses that have been hanging in the closet since Sept 29, 2006 which is the date i retired. have not worn a dress since and don't intend to. the question is, why are they still hanging there? that question is for me, not you sweet Madi.

  13. Kathy makes such treasures!!! I think my gentle boys would turn into pumas if I tried to put collars on, so no fancy bling for them either.
