I'm getting excited! Today I found out the names of our soon-to-be turkeys (Blossom and Tinkerbell), and their delivery date (11/20). Stay tuned!

P.S. If you don't follow the minutiae of my daily life - well, first of all, shame on you! And second of all, to explain - we're taking part in this year's Farm Sanctuary Turkey Express, where shelter workers deliver a pair of turkeys to an eagerly awaiting adoptive family (ours), and try to whirl up a bunch of press coverage just before Thanksgiving to raise awareness of turkeys as sentient beings, and to encourage people to consider not taking an innocent creature's life as a celebration of 'thanks'.

I've been reading your blog for months now and I love it. Love your jewelry! I am a jeweler myself. I'd love to read a bit more on how you find your rings to be recycled. I cannot wait to see pictures of your new turkeys. Carlos' costume was the cutest. Keep up the great work on your blog! Marissa

Thanks Marissa. I buy all of my metal from Hoover & Strong - they sell recycled metal in all different shapes and forms. :-)
