How could I foget??

   I guess I`ve just been tired....A show this weekend, getting back to the office, laundry, etc....I walked into the kitchen last night and saw these beautiful roses! I thought pink roses were my favorite but these yellow ones...they just took my breathe away! How did I forget my anniversary? I remembered just last week while we were planning a trip this summer to celebrate~
 With all the craziness in my life there is always one person who is always supportive, always there, always possitive and loving, always knowing what to say and do. I`ve learned so much about the word of God through you!
   Happy anniversary my darling husband! I am truly Blessed to have you in my life.

Working on a few things....

This is just a small portion of what I`ve worked on or currently working on for the last few weeks. The rest of my work table is covered up and just waiting for me to go through it.
What a mess! Gotta get focused on creating instead of collecting....or not!

Sometimes I just have to look at my "stuff" and play with it before it has another life.

Blue skies....Blue creations....

Even though I love pink, blue has been popping up in my studio! I`ve been creating using more color for Spring. I love using treasures I`ve found while shopping at antique malls and stores. Here`s a few things I came up with....

(I love the hooks above the pocket! Great to dangle earrings or little sparkly elements)!

I found this blue jewelry box and knew it was mine when I opened it up and saw the pink lining!

Baby rattles...Love the sterling bell. I made a pink one in an earlier post...

If you look closely, you`ll see the larger crytal beads. They are etched and very old. I fell in love with the necklace they were made with.

I found this vintage Limoges pendant and loved the face on this sweet lady. The blue on her shawl drew me in...

I placed this necklace on a vintage doll trunk. I thought it would be great for a display for a show. I`ll post it later....Now back to my studio to create with color....

New Display For My Hats!

I have been looking and hunting for A vintage floor hat stand. I found them at various antique shops and malls, but nobody would sell them....
I went to a small shop that I visit often and in a dusty corner I found one!
What??? I never thought of looking there before. At first he said no but I put that pitiful look in my eyes and made a good offer and he sold it to me!
I threw it in my car and cleaned it up.....



A few new ones....

Yes, I`ll admit I love vintage hats and when I see a pink one my heart melts....
I`ll be wearing some of these so be watching for the crazy blonde with flowers on her head!

I`m linking to Beverly`s Pink Saturday.... come join me!
