Blue Monday

Well, one of my New Year's Resolutions is to blog on a more regular basis.

It makes my heart smile when I go back and see that there are
real-live visitors who read my blog and
 my faithful followers who stop by every now and again.

I feel like I'm letting these fellow bloggers down by not having anything new,
so here we go with my first post of many for 2014.

It's Blue Monday!

You can read more about Blue Monday on Smiling Sally's blog. 
Participants are invited to post something blue on their blogs each Monday.

Here's what I have for you today...

This is my best friend and bestest sister, Sherri.
We were in Ruidoso, New Mexico on a horse-drawn sleigh ride.

It was gently snowing on us as we enjoyed the jingle bells and Christmas lights.
Then we were warmed by a cup of yummy hot chocolate.


Next I want to share something very special to me...

The necklace above is one of my late mother's many pieces of jewelry.
She always was so well put-together --- 
with beautiful pieces that complemented her outfits
(Which more often than not were handmade.)

Her jewelry wasn't fancy - what most call  "costume jewelry" -
but she was always gorgeous in my eyes!

I was in an online Charm Swap awhile back.
The color theme was blue and silver.
I made my charms from my mother's necklace. 
I wanted to share her legacy.  :)

And now I'd like to share her legacy with you as well.

Here's what you gotta do:

First leave a comment on my blog.
    Then I will contact you about a one-on-one charm swap.
   (ie you send me a charm and I send you a charm.)

Simple as that!  What do you say?...wanna play?

Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thanks for stopping by.
blessings, denise  :D
