Wing Ring....Win it!

It's time for me to clip in and create a fresh body of work for my hometown followers, while I work I've decided to offer this pretty prototype wing ring as a thank you for all of your wonderful support. I've been wanting to create a ring like this for a while and I finally did.


What size is it? I don't know I didn't measure it. It fits some of my fingers.....


If it doesn't fit you, just think of the fun you can have playing Cinderella.


What do you have to do to win? You don't have to follow me on facebook, or twitter, I'm not there, I'm walking my dogs ;)


You just have to guess how many marbles are in the jar without going over, the closest guesser will win. I'll count the marbles on Friday and announce the lucky recipient.

I should add....International followers are welcome, I love you ladies!

*old school


Did anyone see the ring of fire last night? I need to get some welding glasses, I pointed my camera at the sun and looked at the flap viewer. I wasn't able to see it but I felt it, I would describe the sunlight as becoming strange and sort of murky.

I'm headed off to work but before I go I'd like to wish all of you a great week ahead!

  2. ...then it'll fit some of my fingers, too. I love it. (And so glad I don't have to 'like' you...even though I do.)

    Um. I never was able to guess correctly when I was a kid *sniff* It was my white whale. I say 77 because it's the first number that popped into my head.

    No eclipse for us! We were in the perfect position to see it in all it's glory and we had a blanket of clouds the entire day. *boo* Really bummed. Am checking out videos on YouTube now.

    Have a terrific week, Ro. We're expecting rain most of the week. I'm doing my happy dance. In my galoshes.

  4. Good Morning to the gals on the trail. Wow, that eclipse was cool. So strange how the light outside looks, its so different, not like a sunrise or sunset or cloudy day, just eerie! My nephew got some cool pictures, by holding his hand around the shadow of the sun, cast on the wall, and then taking a picture of that!
    xoxo!

  20. I'm going to guess 68 :) If I had those places to roam each day I wouldn't be on facebook or twitter either!

    ReplyDelete
  21. My guess is 63. By the way, that is one AWESOME marble jar!!

    AND the ring is stunning--one that touches my heart, for certain. Every detail, as always....

    No eclipse view here--although it certainly could have been visible to a partial degree--and I was even outdoors, chasing chickens out of newly-planted moss roses and salvia and trying to resurrect the damage....my eyes were not turned skyward...the hens and I have some disputes every spring, but I appreciate their eggs and bug-eating habits.

    1. HA haa, I was using my "square" the other day typing my email address with my pointer finger and I handed it to a 20 something customer to add her info when I saw her grab that puppy, thumbs flying, generating smoke.......it's all in the thumbs I thought.

      Two days later her boyfriend came over and I brought out the square again but he typed his info in just like I had, first finger. Since I'm a lady detective I casually said "you don't text do you?" he was a little surprised but answered "nope"

      true texting story...

      Good luck with your guess!!

  33. Hi Ho Ro --

    I meant to tell you the other day that I remember playing with mercury too. In 1st grade (up in the sticks in Maine) I traded for a prescription-container-sized vial of the stuff. (It was heavy.) I remember taking a BB-sized ball of it, putting it on my desk, and hitting it with my fist to watch all the beads of mercury fly in different directions.....on a dare of course. Only did it once, but still! Jeesh.....!!

    Thought this might make you *smile*.
    xoxo & have a great Wednesday ♥

    1. I knew you did and guess what, it was, so much fun, I wish it wasn't dangerous, I'd keep a little vile around and let my monkey play with it. I may have broken a thermometer on purpose just to play with it.

      I also looked at the sun when my mother told me not to during a solar eclipse as a child. How could I not, I didn't stare at it I just a quick peek.

      Yup I was a sinner even back then..

  37. I just looked through the photos here again because I couldn't resist, and so I finally noticed the duet of black and white feathers...so very, very lovely together.

    Tomorrow is Friday--make sure Belle gets a good night's sleep--no shenanigans tomorrow!!!!
