Christian rowing on the Charles River in Boston
Well, summer is off to a fantastic start for my son
who spent a glorius morning on the Charles learning to row.
Adaptive seating provides more support
Christian has one more year of high school and then it's off to college!
He decided to join the adaptive sports program at Spaulding Rehab so he can try a few different water sports, like rowing and canoeing,
since he'd like to join a crew once he gets to college.
His instructor said he did a great job!
He had an awesome 1:1 instructor plus there were several other instructors in the water, two on sailboards and another in a kayak, lending support and encouragement. Every time a Duck Boat crossed their path everyone on board shouted "Quack! quack!".
Back at the launch he was all smiles
When he got back he told me he caught his first crab. What?!
It's a rowing thing...
Now it's off to the gym to start training!

As you can see from the randomizer results I sorted for two winners,
just in case I needed a spare.
Well, it just so happens that I am very good friends with Miss Robinson! And, since I can hand deliver her "Looking Glass" pendant, I've decided to announce a second winner!
Congratulations to the winners!

"Looking Glass" Pendants
"If everybody minded their own business,
the world would go around a great deal faster than it does".
Man, ain't that the truth!
I had planned to post these pics of the pendants I made for my
Give-Away sooner but alas, I was hit with a nasty computer virus.
Fortunately, I'm back on track.
If you haven't already posted in my last thread for a chance to
Do it now! Don't be late!
Post a comment by tomorrow morning at eight!
One winner will be chosen via randomizer.org
and will be announced tomorrow Saturday, June 16th!
The winner will receive one Alice in Wonderland inspired
"looking glass" pendant of their choice.

Off with her head!
"I'm late! I'm late!
For a very important date!
No time to say hello, goodbye!
I'm late! I'm late! I'm late!"
Today is the blog hop for Alice in Wonderland hosted by
Stacie Louise. I didn't complete my piece in time to get in on the hop, but wanted to show you what I came up with anyway!
The challenge was to create a piece of jewelry inspired by
Alice in Wonderland. It's a wonderfully imaginative story that offers lots in the way of inspiration! An additional requirement was that
at least 50% of the piece had to be handmade.
As I was pounding some well worn silverware into garden markers for the upcoming Vintage Bazaar I noticed a few pieces with a great rose pattern and decided that I would choose the Queen of Hearts!
I used the spoon on the right to create a toggle. The bar is cut from the stem of the same spoon into a scepter and arrow. Messy work, but well worth the effort. I think it came out great!
Hand-cut toggle clasp.
I made the "looking glass" pendant from a vintage opticians lens and enclosed the Queen of Hearts with a hand-cut shortbread tin bezel.
