Winter in the Desert

Yes, sometimes we do have winter here in Tucson! Wednesday it actually SNOWED here. Big white soft flakes of wet snow! Covered and stuck to the ground for a couple of hours. Ray went out and took some pics ...

The next morning the sun was shining, and there was still a little smattering of snow on our mountain (Golden Mt. in the Tucson Mountains).


Now, some soapy pictures. :)

 A couple of beer soaps. Raspberry Wheat, made with Sharp Top Raspberry Wheat beer, scented with just a touch of Black Raspberry Vanilla fragrance oil.

And, made with Sierra Nevada Torpedo beer, scented with Cedarwood and Fir Needle essential oils. This smells goooooood !!

Off the curing rack and in the shops, Honey Orange & Clove. Yum yum!!

Took new pics of my Oatmeal & Honey soap for the shops.

I did manage to get to the Tucson Gem Show last week. I went with 2 things on my mind .... turquoise and pearls. For the turquoise, I went to the vendor that sells turquoise from the Kingman mine, which is located in northern Arizona. I just got a few strands for a couple of projects.

And then headed right for TA Pearls, and got just a few strands of round white freshwater pearls.
