the necklace saga

So years ago, at the Unique Thrift Store in NE Minneapolis, I found a little seahorse pendant for like $3. When I got it home I realized it was actually a cut coin. Some google snooping led to the realization that it was from Singapore. I wore that little necklace for about three years straight... until last Friday. I got home from work and realized it was gone! Chain broken, GONE! I whined to Ryan (the bf) about it and he understood, having just said goodbye to his signature red hat that had been with him for like 10 years and died awash in a sea of Johnny Walker inside the MOA (long story). Anyway, I had looked for a similar necklace on Ebay last year when my only two girl friends were moving (one to Boulder and one to Boston) because I wanted to get them one as a goodbye present and there were none. I looked again now cause I am NAKED without that little seahorse and there he was!!
He was $15 instead of $3 but I was so excited. He came in the mail the other day and boy is he just like his brother. The years on the coin are only a year off too ('71 instead of '70). If you are interested in one (or any other cut coins, there are a lot of cute ones from other countries) they are available


I will post again soon about my fun Memorial Day weekend but for now, ta ta!

Hey again!
I believe I met you about two years back, at a party I was dragged to by a Mr. C Murray... Wow, that was ages ago. I don't believe we had any interaction as I was totally out of my element, but I remember faces pretty well. John says a BIG "HI!!!!" back, by the way!

I absolutely adore your work and plan on purchasing more shirts! I think everyone should know what a great job you're doing.
