Friends {Old & New} and A "Freebie"

One of the things that I pride myself on is my list of friends {old & new}. Yesterday we went to dinner & a movie with our "new" friends, Tom & Sandi. We went to see "Taken", which was not as good as we thought it was going to be. It's just your typical "shoot em up, car chase thriller", with a totally predictable ending. The non-stop action just made my adrenaline pump way to high which, in turn, caused me to eat more that I should have at "P.F. Changs" {that's my excuse anyway, and I'm sticking to it}. Ah, but just getting out and doing something was certainly with the trouble. We had a great time.

But the one thing about "old" friends is that you can always pick up the phone, or send them an e-mail and it's like you never missed a beat. One of my dearest and oldest {time, not age} friends is Christine {Chris}. We've been friends since high school and we were room-mates for a couple of years in the early 80's in Louisiana. In our mid 20's she and her family headed back to southern California, where she still lives today with her husband & two "furry" kids. She flew down here last summer for a week and we really enjoyed her visit and hope she comes back soon:hee hee ~ here she is with her little Bug!!! She {we} drove that car into the ground. I remember there was a "tricky" way to start it, which involved a screwdriver?!? {I think}. Maybe she'll post a comment on this blog to refresh my memory! And boy what memories we have! I know I don't have enough space on "blogger" to even start on those stories!

So, today's blog give away, in honor of those friends near & far, old & new, and to those yet to be met, is one of my best seller's ever. My little "Bird Girl Journey" necklace:She is being enjoyed by people all over the world! Of course, all you have to do to win her is comment on this post. I'll announce the lucky winner on Monday {February 9th}, which is also the day I'll be having a "Valentine Jewelry Trunk Show", along with another one of my special little girlfriends, Paula. We'll be setting up @ "The Hobnob" from 6 to 9ish pm. Please come see us, if you can.

Wayne {my best friend & soul mate} and I are going to ride up to the Parkway today and check out the snow!
Happy Wednesday!
♥ & peace always ~ Kathy

  1. Oh, I'd love to win! I first found your etsy shop through search that landed me on the image of this necklace. I bought another instead, but have always admired this one. :)

  3. I had that exact same VW...1974 limited edition Champagne color..with the sunroof. I always had to park mine on a hill and the back seat had been eaten up by the battery acid and there were holes in the floor...what a great car!!!

  11. It's me, the one in the car! Too funny, my car was a trip - for a long time I had no reverse, so I had to park on a hill so I could roll back in neutral, not an easy task in flat Baton Rouge! As Kathy said, we drove that car into the ground! Mine had a/c, but it didn't really work. Thanks for posting Kathy - I miss you so very much!!

  18. I was just looking at some of my pictures from college yesterday. Twenty years makes a big difference.
    Lovely necklace.

  19. Oooohhh, such a lovely necklace!

    My father was a VW fanatic. He died a year and a half ago, and I've been considering getting a tiny tattoo of his old 69 convertible bug in memory of him.

    Glad I found your blog (and your shop!).

  20. Spring has definitely come to the Bay Area. We receive its beauty early and it lingers on until the rest of the Norther Hemisphere ( I love that word ) catches up. The camellias are still blooming but some are discarding their blossoms now. The Deciduous Magnolias have burst out in the past week along with the cherry, plum, and pear trees. Calla lilies unfurl and a the roses are starting. Beautiful.


    Jewelry? Yummm.
