Friday the 13th!!

Okay, so today is Friday the 13th -- here are some tidbits I found out about this "unlucky" day:

Many airports skip the 13th gate.

Airplanes have no 13th aisle.

Hospitals and hotels regularly have no room number 13.

Italians omit the number 13 from their national lottery.

On streets in Florence, Italy, the house between number 12 and 14 is addressed as 12 and a half.

Another sure sign of Spring!

The Cardinals are back!

This is a necklace I made yesterday as a birthday gift for my sister. Although, as I was photographing it, I realized I will need to restring it. There should be 5 coral beads on each side of the clasp and one side has 6!! What a pain stringing those chip beads!!


  1. I'm sure your sister will love the necklace. Very nice.

  2. I love that picture of a cardinal. So bright! Spring is here!
