My sister came to visit us the first week of August. It was such a treat to have her here with us. One of our many activities while she was here included making earrings. Neither of us had really made earrings before and, while they aren't perfect, I'm happy with how mine turned out.

My sister made some great earrings too. I wish I had taken pictures of hers to share. Today, I decided to try making another pair of earrings. Here is how they turned out.

I rather like these stones because they were one of the few items that my Dad gave to me. He was a collector of many things and a frequenter of antique and thrift stores. Sometimes he would come home with jewelry for my mom, sister or myself. These agates are from a necklace he gave me when I was probably in seventh grade. I never really wore the necklace but I've always loved the stones. I'm glad that I finally figured out a way to wear them.

Tonight in the kitchen, S has dough going for homemade pizza. Our standard Friday night meal. And, there's a growler cooling off in the fridge. It's going to be a lovely evening. Happy Friday night everyone.
