Let It Snow Let It Snow Let It Snow

Yes the weather outside has been frightful,
and the glow inside is delightful.
This has been a busy holiday time, and there is much for which to be

It's been quite a decade too!

2010 promises

great changes, hopefully for the better.

There are many things that I love, and I am so hopeful that the work I have
now can sustain me.
Life indeed is like looking through beads of many colors
each day and moment with it's own hue.

Keep reading to the children, giving them the gift of literacy.

When you have time, return again to shop with confidence all through the year ~

Let me create for you unique items of simple joys:

All my life I have held the highest respect for handmade items.

I have endeavored to find my own niche.

after flowers found me,

The Holidays Come But Once A Year !

My husband recently said,"Well, the leaves are changing again, and here come the holidays!"
The cyclical turn of the seasons and years rolling on is comforting and exciting both.
So much can happen in a year, and there is much to be thankful for.
I am thankful for wonderful kind customers who have found me
even though I have left the market tables under the trees in the park.
Getting older, the home is where I want to be.
Thank you everyone!

The Freedom & Farness

Inspired by my sister's invitation to return North
for a sojourn, I am rejuvenated with a fresh perspective on Nature once again in my life.

The Sitka Musical Festival was Heaven on Earth!

Before I left, my brother sent me some simple gifts from the Atlantic Coast, which have just as perfectly shed light on this same feeling.

Old Fashioned MarketPlace Service

One thing my husband taught me is that the
returning customer is the most important customer.
Living on the Lagniappe Philosophy, as I call it,
I guess you'd say you get what you sow...
And since I can't sew worth a darn (oops!)
Dangling is my concern these days!
SO, I want to do the best job I can to make sure
that your design and product is unique and lovely
just for you and yours!
Like nature, each pair is absolutely unique, and hand created with gentleness and care.
I hope you will return again and again to enjoy what I design and create just for you!

The ReCycled Turkey Earrings who Flew To Shageluk ~ Turkies, Squash, Crystal, Whipped Cream !

During the Holidays,
it was wild and crazy...
and being a slave to excellent customer service,
I knew that time was of the essence with each and every order.

So, when I had a buy from a teacher at the
Innoku River School in Shageluk Alaska,
just a couple of days before Thanksgiving,
and, yes they were Turkey Earrings,
I knew my fingers had to fly!

Thanks to a wonderful mail system
and a dedicated bush pilot,
my little recycled bead whimsies for the holiday
made it there for the big dinner!

This was a small yet very rewarding part of my current job!

Soon, the Iditarod will begin, if it hasn't already, and I believe this village is always as stop on the Trail !
So, as you can see, you can shop with confidence at
Kirsten Tannenbaum Earrings by Mom !

Green Skies from now on ....

Here's where you'll find me from now on ...
The wide open skies of the markets couldn't hold me,
though I sometimes did feel like I had the best seat in the house (Centennial Park ~ view of downtown Tulsa ~ The Pearl Market @ 6th & Peoria) ~ Look for Luna Bread!

I am there in heart and here still for you.
See my site at

The ChristKindl Angels did make it to Denmark, as well as some lovely Turkies to the Innoko River School in Shagulak, Alaska, and Christmas pair to Russia... I really feel as if my dangles are getting "out there" beyond Tulsa! I have a couple of YouTube Videos: the Blue Recycled Christmas Light Angel Earrings who Flew to CopenHagen and one of some of my favorite natural stone designs.
Still looking for a celebrity ~ not that we all aren't in our own worlds... to wear a pair of Kirsten Tannenbaum Earrings by Mom ...
