I've had this hammered brass bracelet for almost 30 years. Used to wear it dancing at the Disco (oh the stories, the stories!) It was made by Dana Driver, an artist/jeweler I knew back in Jerome, AZ.
Well, now that I've got a few years on me, and the Disco is but a distant memory, I decided to fancy it up a bit with some faceted red glass beads, a mother of pearl flat donut bead, and a foiled glass gold colored bead. I like the way it turned out, don't you?
Amid huge displays of fireworks, light shows, massive numbers of revelers and half-frozen celebratory crowds, the New Year was greeted by the world, - and the old year was kicked to the curb like a bad bf on Jerry Springer.
Not that we participated in the festivities. I did look at MSN's slide show this morning, but that's about it. Today is sunny and crisp, - 46 degrees. Just perfect.
Mr Fox says he's turning over a new leaf and will now be waking up early instead of staying up late. I guess that means I'll be doing the same. It ought to be an interesting change of pace.
Best wishes for a happy, healthy, productive and peaceful 2009.
