Think cool thoughts. Think cool thoughts . . . . AND A GIVEAWAY!

Here it is the first of August, and if you think it was hot in Texas in July, you “ain’t seen nothin’ yet!” I have been­­ staying close to home and in the cool of the house, but I still have my own little “power surges” or ”personal heat-waves”, if you get my drift. And when that happens and the AC is as cool as it is going get, I repeat to myself, “Think cool thoughts. Think cool thoughts . . . .”
I was doing that today as I was making this bracelet.

It is a bit of a departure for me and I hope you like it, because I made it especially for this giveaway. (More on that in a moment.)

The bracelet is sterling silver links with a variety of glass beads (5mm – 12mm) dangling down from their silver wire wraps. The five orphan lamp-work beads are in shades of aqua and teal. They remind me of Monet’s Water-lily series.

I gave it a test wear this afternoon, and it is light and comfortable, and as you can see from the photos, it goes with anything from denim to chintz and lace.
Now, for the giveaway:
I really appreciate all my readers and I am so surprised that my counter has turned over 1,000 visits. To thank you and to increase readership, here are the rules:

#1 On your blog tell your friends about the giveaway and ask them to post a comment on this blog
#2 Stop by and post a comment on this blog – only one comment per person counts (if you should forget and post again)
#3 Check back next Saturday (August 8) to see if you were the lucky winner selected at random.

How easy is that?
And again: Thank You Thank You Thank You

Sorry it took me so long to get to your blog... I had a busy weekend! Since I don't have a blog, I will post on FB. I have some of those little acrylic boxes with the membrane saved up for you; I will bring them to the next TWU breakfast if you're going to be there.

I already left a comment, but, maybe it did not post either! I love to see what you are creating, more especially because it all looks beautifully blue to me. Maybe we can meet up this week, I have to work tomorrow but after that I would love to see you. Let me know what is good for you and we will come and visit. Much love, as always

I am excited to see what else you are making. The blue beads make me think of summer. Once I went to Cozumel for a day, the water had all the beautiful blues that were created for our joy and Gods Glory. Your bracelet reminded me of both. You need to keep on creating. It is inspirational my friend. Next week, Monday afternoon let's meet for a soda and a chat. Want to come to my place?
