You say aubergine and I say eggplant...

I just listed these Purple Frosted Like Beach Glass earrings. They kind of look like jewelry berries hanging from the branch.
Here is the matching Purple Frosted Like Beach Glass Pendant. Not quite as dramatic a picture. Oh well. They can't all be winners.
I've been trying to add all the different colors we have in this style earring and pendant when I have the time. There seems to have been a shortage of time.
Nothing new and exciting here. I went to the saturday Market in Eugene to sell yesterday. I was dreading it because they predicted it to be 95 degrees. I foolishly had high hopes because the Olympic Trial s and the Bach Festival have just started for the next two weeks so there should be lots of visitors in town.
Well they were off by 5 degrees. It was 100 in the shade by 4:30. I was in the sun although covered in my booth. It was brutal. Sales started out decent but died quickly because any sane person would not be there shopping. The highlight of the day was when one of my fellow marketeers broke out the cooler with melting ice and we stuck our feet in it. I tried to keep my suffering in perspective by thinking of our brave soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan working in warmer temperatures and carrying all their protective armour and gear while risking their lives.
I am a wimp.

I am a wimp too. I don't know what I would do without the A/C.....The earrings are lovely. :)

Yup, it was HOT this weekend wasn't it... We were at the coast Friday night, and it was a pleasant 80 degrees... only to return home to 99!! What's that all about...

I'm enjoying these mildly beautiful few days that followed.
