Week 14: Beetroot Purple

Took these photos ages ago but haven’t posted them for some reason. This necklace was made with silver-plated components and bright pink glass beads.

By your headpins combined... Week 14: Beetroot Purple

 

 

Our three Guinea Goddess are together again. First we lost Isis, then Mona earlier this year, and Mimi last month. I miss all three of them terribly.

Peter or I have fetched their fresh veggies every night since I first got Isis in January 2005. It still feels so weird to finish cleaning the kitchen after dinner and NOT reach for the fridge to grab lettuce, carrots, or red bell peppers. I have to keep reminding myself that our routine has just…ended.

Here are their three completed urns.

I used Egyptian imagery for Isis (of course):

Isis' Urn Isis

Mona, born in November, got a Greek cornucopia, since she is named after Pomona, goddess of the harvest:

Mona's Urn Mona

Mimi was named for Artemis, Roman goddess of the hunt, because the orange on her head looks like an arrowhead when viewed from above (I threatened to name her “Insert Food Here,” but Peter argued against it):

Mimi's Urn Mimi

They’re probably together somewhere giving each other hell. Isis is running laps and bouncing around, Mimi has climbed head-first into a pile of hay, and Mona is popcorning so hard she flips herself over…repeatedly.

Our Angel Pigs

For today only, EverQuest II’s annual Bristlebane Day (April Fool’s Day) celebrations get kicked up a notch with special quests, rewards, buyables, and harvestables.

Make sure you head over to the Enchanted Lands and speak with Imenand the Sphinx for two today-only quests, and clear your bags so you have loads of room for harvestables from Frostfell, Tinkerfest, Erollisi Day, and more.

Get to it, since Bristlebane Day goes back to “normal” tomorrow! 🙂
