[personal|photos] The Shiny, it sparkles

[info]davidlevine came by Nuevo Rancho Lake yesterday bearing gifts. He brought a card from [info]elisem which had also been signed by a ton of folks at WFC, causing me to tear up. Additionally [info]elisem her own self had sent along a couple of gifts.

One is a cupcake bead. It’s horribly cute, and is a reference to a dream I had about her a while back: [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ].

The other is an opal in one of Elise’s lovely silver settings, and is a reference to the visit she and I and several other folks made to Lightning Ridge Opals in Melbourne last year: [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ]. It’s a piece I rather liked in the raw, and she has set it up so very nicely.

I want to thank [info]elisem, and any other little elves I suspect may have been involved in this. ETA: And I’m told there were many elves, everyone on the card in fact and perhaps more. Thank you all.

I feel honored and loved and beautified.
