The next Blogger and pressie from OWOH

This is the next pressie I got from One World One Hope, see the first one from Kim at Queen of Arts studio here.
Gloria from Gloria's wooden bangle shoppe picked me in her draw for OWOH, Yay!! Lucky me, again. It came in a cellophane bag with her card stapled at the top, no picture of that bag, I ripped that baby open.

Gloria painted the wooden bangle with a sparkly brown paint inside and out. Then she added the orangey colors and the yellow. It is perfect for me, I love these colors. It reminds me of fall trees and it is gorgeous.
She also signed it too.

It came with this pendant, also done the same way as the bangle. They are both very light weight and comfortable to wear.
You can find Gloria at Viva La Vida or here http://glorv1.blogspot.com/
Gloria is a wonderful woman who I have known on the blogs for a while, she is always a sweet woman when she comments and she loves Frida Kahlo, you can find quotes from Frida there on her blog...


"They are so damn 'intellectual' and rotten that I can't stand them anymore....I [would] rather sit on the floor in the market of Toluca and sell tortillas, than have anything to do with those 'artistic' bitches of Paris."

One of my favorites ;-D

Gloria also has recipes galore, yummy stuff. An excellent resource this. She is a member of Hispanic Kitchen. She also has links to other's blogs with food on them all the way at the bottom.

Gloria also has another blog, her bangle blog.
Gloria's Wooden Bangle shoppe- Bangles A go-go where she sells her bangles and some just like the one I got for wonderful prices and there are many many different designs that she can do.
Or here http://glorv1spaintedwoodenbracelets.blogspot.com/


Here is a nice picture of the both together. The pendant also came on a beautiful silk cord that buttons off and on. Simple and uncomplicated, but so beautiful and wearable. I love that too!

Thank you so so much Gloria, these both are lovely pieces and the perfect colors for me and I love them.

Go visit Gloria and see what her life has to offer, it is rich and it is full and you will be glad you did.

  9. Lolo, I am laughing at "tan", it is probably just my freckles coming together after all these years.
    The bracelet does look good though.
