We are eagerly awaiting the arrival of my Christmas gift, which is being made by the goldsmith in Florence. making ring

I took this picture as he was making it. It has been refined and altered several times, and I can’t wait to see the final product.

Meanwhile, here in Seattle, Chia and I walk in the rain and wind. We always find something interesting to see!rudolph

Every evening now, the Christmas ships parade by our house. Sometimes just a few, and at other times as many as 100!boats

I am busy wrapping gifts of Florentine silk scarves, ceramics and a couple of surprises for my daughters from the goldsmith…..and only 4 more days until my new ring arrives!
