My beautiful orchids swinging in the breeze all along our back patio~~ facing the wetlands
My MOST favorite orchid..it's a royal blue/purple isn't it awesome..mother nature does it best!
Here's the king of our castle...Keanu isn't he a looker?
Here is the beautiful and talented 'Josh Man'..he was.. and always will be the light of our eyes!!

Yes, you may call me the 'Color Queen' every wall in my studio is a different color..whoop da!
This is where the action happens..upstairs..in my little piece of heaven..Coyote Blue Studio
Hot and spicy and as full of beads as any well stocked shop..I'm talkin' bead and shell central!
Another view of the studio..it's my bliss!
My work table picture me here working on my jewelry..I so love to create!
More creations ready for my shows..these don't show that well without the light studio
34 lbs down and the ticker is still movin' woot, woot..thanks Spark People!
One of my favorite creations ..free form copper necklace with pearls..
I LOVE this necklace..so much I refuse to sell it and will keep it for myself..oh this is costly!
Right now I'm 'shell struck' with my jewelry..these came right off the beach on our morning walks!
Yep...an endless supply of shells, these beauties came from my morning walk on the beach..
Free form with shells...what do you think?
It is just the greatest feeling when people like your artistic creations isn't it?
Some of my jewelry on display at our little farmer's market..I sold a bunch through season..yeah!
Another favorite creation of mine where I display..free form on a s/s omega 30" chain..stunning!
I love creating my jewelry, but my son was my best creation ever! I miss him sooo much!
My beautiful hubby and our gorgeous son...like father like son..we surely miss Josh's wit and wisdom
yep..here is my biggest inspiration..I still feel his essence around his dad and I every day!
The beautiful Josh with me (his greatest fan) at grandma Shirleys in happier times at Christmas
Granted this was MANY years ago..but I felt so happy and healthy around 125-130 lbs..someday
Josh always scoped the audience..he wanted to be a film-maker and was an extraordinary writer!
Beautiful Josh and his girlfriend Andrea on our Florida beach at sunset..I think of him always!
Josh's photo applying for scholarship at film school in Orlando...he did receive a small grant!
Josh's last photo..our mother/son trip to NYC to the Tribecca Film Fest...Viva Josh forever!!
Our great horned owl..he is only about 20 feet away from our backyard lanai..what beauty!
Bobcat right outside our pergola he came out of the wetlands good thing the cats are inside cats!
He is KING of the wetlands..we all give him wide berth!
