Two of a Kind in Cozumel, Mexico

Good morning,

It was a gorgeous, sunny day when I took these images of two sisters side by side in Cozumel, Mexico.
Freedom of the Seas and Liberty of the Seas are sisters, but there have been changes to each of them since they were launched.  The most obvious difference from here is the addition of the water slide on board Liberty.
Such beautiful ships!

Enjoy,
Lois

All Tied Up - Cozumel, Mexico

Good morning,

It's when you get off of a cruise ship that you realize just how big it is! 

This is Freedom of the Seas all tied up in Cozumel, Mexico.

So pretty!

Glass Art - Freedom of the Seas

Good morning,

This is a huge piece of art!  It is three dimensional glass flowers in Boleros Bar aboard Freedom of the Seas.  There are several of these located throughout the bar.

Beautiful!

Enjoy,

Casino Royale - Freedom of the Seas

Good morning,

I strolled through the Casino Royale aboard Freedom of the Seas while the casino was closed so I had the opportunity to take a few pictures.
The decor is 1920's gangster...
...and there is terrific artwork throughout the casino.
Unless the lights are bright, however, it is not always easy to see.

 What a fun place!

Enjoy,
Lois

Liberty of the Seas - Arrival Cozumel, Mexico

Good morning,

What a beautiful sight!  This is Liberty of the Seas approaching Cozumel, Mexico.
I am taking these images from Freedom of the Seas, Liberty's sister ship.  So, this is like looking in the mirror.

Gorgeous!

Needlework and Wood Update - September, 2016

Good morning,

Since we've been home on vacation, we have more wood items to show you this month than when we are at sea where My Honey isn't able to make these beautiful items.

The box above is incredible.  The long drawer on the right has brass hooks at the top so you can hang necklaces.  Two of the four drawers have a secret, too;  there are two hidden drawers in the back of them.

We've added many more turned wood bird houses to the shop, too.
Each one of these is unique.
 
 These are beautiful on your Christmas tree, on house plants, or hung by themselves. 
 And, finally several more that are longer.  Many of these are available in the shop.
 And, back to more jewelry boxes!
 This tiny box is perfect for a ring, locket, or chain bracelet.

Our final two wood items this month are coffee scoops.  The one above is gold plated and there is another in the shop that is chrome plated.

 The knitting this month included this lovely lettuce green textured lace sweater,
a matching green hat,
boot cuffs,
and a head band. 
I also made another side button sweater vest that has been delivered to the lady who ordered it.  I like this style so much I plan to make more of them for the shop.

So, that's it for another month of our needlework and wood projects. 

Many of these and 300 more items are available in our on-line shop, EvensensProductions.com.  We hope you'll come over and take a look at what's available when you're doing your holiday shopping and throughout the year.

Until next month's update, we now return to our regularly scheduled blogging.  ;)

All the best,
Lois

Going On Board

Good morning,

I took this image from the parking garage just before we went on board Freedom of the Seas. 

Stay tuned for images from the high seas!
