Spring, Sunset and Beads

Now I can say it is spring! The temperatures are just right, morning walks are great. The smoke in the first picture is from a prescribed burn near Route 66, several miles away. There`s no smoke smell and I like the way the haze changes the look of the mountains.
 


My husband took this sunset picture earlier this week. The navy and yellow colors are fantastic. I told hubby "the tripod is your friend"! Still a great picture.


This sequin and bead collar was a mystery to me until a beading friend enlightened me. Per my friend it is Italian. The fabric is very nice quality organza, the beads are glass. It is huge, all hand work. I bartered the collar for new area rugs. Thank you to the sweet blog friend who sent me this beauty. If  the information about this collar is wrong, don`t hesitate to correct me.



Speaking of bartering, I`ve made some nice trades recently. I`ll post about my experiences. Thank you for stopping by,
Cathy
