Let us dance in the sun and wear wild flowers in our hair ~ Susan Poliz Shultz
Its been awhile! What have I been up to? I had my first photo shoot this summer. A huge thank you to awesome photographer Craig Johnson, and my stunning models Kellie Kanakares Johnson , Carole Wiedenman & Ed Rath. Also a huge thank you to my husband Andy Winsor for the use of his award winning shovelhead, Gila Monster.
It was so much fun! I've never seen Andy so quiet in my entire life! It also made me realize how much jewelry I've made in my career! I asked the girls to bring their collection and they did! It was an awesome day. Stay tuned there is talk about a Viking shoot this winter.
So in between photo shoots and work I've been enjoying the Black Hills. It was such a beautiful summer here. Lots of rain and mild temperatures until a couple weeks ago. We've been getting some of that hot weather everybody else is experiencing. I have realized my body is used to mountain weather these days. No more desert for this girl!
The Sturgis rally was a bit weird this year. Lots of rain the first week. I felt so bad for all the campers. It was a mud fest. I did manage to have a good rally so have been restocking the website with new work.
As usual if you see anything you like please go to the website shop. Lots of new pieces to choose from. I'm having some issues with email marketing on my website so not sure if Ill be able to continue these blogs. Everything seems to get more complicated these days. If you do Facebook ,TicTok or Instagram I will still be posting there. Ill have to wait and see about the blogs......Stay in touch!
We lost some good ones lately. A tribute to Jimmy Buffet and also Robbie Robertson. May they forever live in our hearts.
This song holds a special place in my heart. I was really young and in a very bad place in my life when a friend shared this song with me. I never forgot that moment or the friend who was there for me.
And then there's Robbie Robertson. He was like family to me in the way that he had been there for as long as I can remember. Every Thanksgiving we would play the Last Waltz and sing along. As a kid I lived just south of San Francisco. I would go to a concert hall called Winterland as often as I could. I remember when the Band had their Last Waltz. I had a chance to go and turned it down. Didn't like the guy who asked me to go......Damn. Who knew it would be a historic event, at least for me.
Fair thee well Jimmy & Robbie. Til we meet on the other side.
Last but not least, we lost the most important person of all. Ryan Winsor. Andy's son. He lived in Washington. Ryan had been sick for awhile and his poor body just couldn't take anymore. He passed to the other side a few weeks ago and will be sorely missed. God Speed Ryan. We love you.
Well, that's it for now. I hope you are all happy and healthy. Take care of yourselves. Tell the people around you how much you love them. Life is fleeting. Blessings to you all.
