When I got my ukulele in June, one of the first songs I wanted to learn to play was Somewhere Over the Rainbow, a long time favorite and perfect, in my opinion, for the ukulele. Sophie was keen too - we initially thought she would play her guitar but she loved the ukulele and had played a bit in music class at school (isn't that fantastic!?). So, within a few days, she had one too - hers is bright green! The best parts have been the time we spent together learning and several resulting fun and silly, after dinner, impromptu family sing-alongs - such a hoot!
Anyway, we did it! We can both play it and if I do say so myself, we sound pretty good together. She wasn't here to make this little video (we may do another on Thanksgiving weekend as proof) but here is me with a shortened version. And, most importantly, I am sparing you my singing voice, but rest assured, I'm singing most enthusiastically in my mind~ enjoy!
These are all created with my hand formed copper wire coils, enameled with powdered glass and secured on patinaed copper or sterling silver wirework 'hangers'. Ear wires are sterling silver. The necklace is longish and will slip easily over your head.
Warm earthy autumn colors are perfect for September and October!
The sweet black kitty that half lives with us in Maui is moving to New Mexico with her 'mom' next week. We are so happy she has her forever home but will miss her alot while we are there. This little video sums up her funny personality! Did you hear her say 'No!' ?
