SHOW & TELL #3 - Turquoise Watch Band & MORE

Happy Friday to everyone. Since it is Friday it's time for me to participate in Show & Tell at Kelli's. Always a fun time of sharing my treasures and viewing the treasures and special things that others have to share. Go to Kelli's and sign up on Mr. Linkey and join the fun.

Last week I showed you a very old turquoise bracelet that had belonged to me mother.

Here are 3 different views of my Turquoise Watch Band
You can see it is made up of sterling silver, 4 larger size turquoise nuggets and then turquoise, coral & onyx inlay.

I treasure this watch band because it was a gift. When we lived in Albuquerque during the 1980's I was executive secretary to the president and owner of Bi*g O T1*res. He actually lived in Denver and commuted by his private plane to Albuquerque 3 days a week. He owned several of the stores in NM & Texas and there were also franchise stores. We had a monthly sales meeting and luncheon of all the owner's & dealers. I also talked to all these owner's and dealers when they would call to speak to the president.

I gave my 2 week notice that I was terminating. The next routine monthly meeting, which was to be my last, I was presented with this lovely gift from all the owner's & dealers. It was a TOTAL shock that brought tears to my eyes. I never expected to receive anything.


Now for the best thing of all to share!!!!! As many of you know my husband had open double bi-pass heart surgery on October 9th last year.

Yesterday we went to Oklahoma City VA Hospital for his check-up.


His recovery is complete thanks to the Drs., Surgeons, Nurses and most of all, JESUS. He does not have to return to OKC for anything further. He will only see his primary care physician here in Tulsa.

Oh, Susan, that is awesome news about Mickey. Big hugs to him from all of us!
That's a beautiful bracelet.
My in-laws bought wholesale (genuine) Indian jewelry from Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and a couple of place in New Mexico and then sell it at craft fairs in CO. They did that for many years, even had a contract with Dillard's to set up at all holidays. They did well with it and it was a great hobby for them.

It's too bad you didn't see what this one woman was wearing the other day. In fact, when I commented on her outfit, she informed me that she made it. She was wearing a black leather fringe vest with turquoise beads. It was beautiful. They were all different sizes but tastefully put together. I need to carry my camera with me more often.
