I Love Lucy

Today marks the 100th birthday of the late Lucille Ball from the I Love Lucy show.  I have fond memories of watching the show while growing up.

Google paid special tribute to Lucy on their home page today with their art; an old time television playing a partial episode of the show.  I tried copying it to place within this post.  Am hoping it works upon publishing this post.  Suggestions welcome if it didn't!!!

In the Spring of 2001, the I Love Lucy postage stamp arrived on the market.  I remember vividly standing in line at the post office excited to see the latest stamp designs. At the same time, we were searching for a name for our puppy we rescued from the shelter.  Upon seeing the stamp and being very much in love with our new bundle of joy, I promptly named our fur baby, Lucy.  Lucy Sophia Calvert, to be exact.

Lucy wearing a hand soldered heart (like the one from the I Love Lucy show) pendant that I made.
The pendant shown sold last year.  I'm sure this pic helped me get the sale.  LOL!
Additional funky soldered jewelry designs can be purchased on my website.
