Wow. It's been two weeks

since I've posted anything. Well, all I've been doing is beading. I've made a few more pairs of earrings. But, how many of those can I post. The weather had been really nice lately, like lots of sun for a change. I've been watching my old whippet get older, but he still gets around pretty good. I don't have anynew pics of him. I posted this one even though it's a few months old. That's one of his buddies Nearly in the background.

A tribute

So I've been beading these whippet/greyhound earrings.
I usually watch tv when I bead.
Well there I am beading and watching tv and I look over at my sweet 14.5 year old whippet Skeeix.
Then it hits me. I must do a tribute to that beautful old face.
You know the one where the color starts to fade and go white around their eyes.
So here are a couple of pairs of earring saluting all those beautful old whippet/greyhounds faces.
Thank you Skeezix.

Earrings are up for sale in my Etsy shop

I also do custom orders.
