High Flying

Yesterday's post was about the gumption of a lawyer-turned-jewelry-designer.

Here are a couple of William Spear enamels from my own permanent collection. Looking at them, I saw a distinct theme emerging: SOARING. Especially when I consider that my next acquisition will be the High Diver pin (blurrily photographed from the catalog.)

Soaring seems the right thing -- since tomorrow I turn sixty.

If it seems the right thing for you too, you might get/make yourself some kind of visual reminder.

I love your choices, Peggy. The wings/book combo is interesting. And I'm glad you're going to be an even number of years: I thought you looked especially young today!!!

Thanks, Mamie. I thought it was pretty interesting that the guy is selling winged books. He must have some writer buddies.

Those pins are really great. Happy Birthday, youngster.

A birthday wish for you Peggy, May you live as long as you want, but never want as long as you live. And we got a little party goin' on in your honor at Why? What Have You Heard? so stop on in and say hi to the folks if you get a chance.
I'd Demand a Recount If I Were You!

Happy birthday, Peggy, whatever the day. I love that book with wings - so appropriate!

Peggy Payne said...

And thank you, Billie, Kenju, and Mojo. I'm on my way over to that party at Why... I'm feeling quite the youngster.

Peggy Payne said...

And I just got the Recount joke! took me a minute.

And I just went to your party, Mojo. In addition to being wildly flattering, it took me back to Varanasi. ( Again, thank you so much. More on this in tomorrow's post.
