On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me–
three Key West hens, two manatees and a pelican in a palm tree.
Here’s the artwork I was talking about. All done in Adobe Illustrator base on some underwater photos I took snorkeling at Looe Key earlier this year.
Okay, finally decorated – the gumbo limbo has lights, the norfolk pine has xmas balls and inside has cards strung along the windows. Definitely feeling more festive
amazonite leaf earrings
blue teardrop earrings
copper chain with turquoise drop earrings
faceted tigereye earrings
Before leaving for my winter in Florida, I made a few pairs of earrings and photographed them on my favorite desk.
Not feeling very Christmasy here in the Florida Keys. Time to decorate!

…and you question why I close the car windows when parked on a sunny day in the Florida Keys. You never know when the rain will come down, and when it does, it pours – so much that you’ll get completely soaked just running out to your car, not to mention some very wet seats.
