The Calendar Says Autumn!?

It's going to get up to 90 degress today! Good thing this old house stays somewhat cool. This is what I made today. There's a coordinating bracelet in my store. I just felt like experimenting. :)

Thanks again to all who participated :)

Here's my necklace for the day too!

How About Some Color

I went to the antique market that was held in the Chardon square. It's about a 5 minute walk from my house. I went with little money and high hopes of finding some unique vintage jewelry. I'm not sure what the women thought they had, but they must of thought that it was solid gold based on their prices! Either they don't really want to part with their jewels or they think we live in California! Anyway... I did manage to find a few things that I could justify buying. One of the pieces was used in this vintage necklace that I made and listed in my store.

Have a great Sunday!

Another Shade of Gray Necklace

This necklace is a tangled ball of wire that I oxidized to a dark gray. Like I said yesterday, "What's with the gray!". :)

I'm Happy But There's a Lot of Gray

I just realized that I have some sort of obsession going on with Charcoal Gray! Looking at my designs lately there is a lot of gray and white going on. Sometimes I get a color in my head and I stick with it for awhile. There is a lot of dark gray or flint going on in the fashion world right now too. I have a shirt in a shade called flint. I made myself the necklace that you see to wear with it (but mine has a vintage silver bird on it in stead of the filigree) and I want to wear it every day!

What's your color of the moment?

I can't wait!

I'm really excited about the giveaway and after reading everyone's comments, I am touched to tears. You are all so wonderful. None of this would be happening if it wasn't for your support, trust and good taste (hahaha). Really, I appreciate all of you so much. Thank you.

I will have a random number generator run to pick the winner of the earrings. Although, I might have Amelia pick a number out of a hat. If I do that, we'll take a picture as proof ;)

OK, enough mushy stuff... this is one of my new creations!

Have a great day!

With love,

I have been obsessed with Paris for years and years. My plan is to go when Amelia is 14 years old. We will be able to speak fluent French by then which should really come in handy!

This necklace is made with the spirit of Paris in mind. It's the French script necklace.

Merci! Bonne nuit!

I've Gone Nutty!

Acorns! I love these little bead caps so much! Take a look at the necklace and earrings in my Etsy store.

It feels like Autumn in the air here in Chardon, OH. I'm really looking forward to this season.

Still working on the mailing list. On the bright side, if I ever needed to copy and paste for a living, I would get the job! hahaha

Have a great day!

Mailing List Blues

I've been working on an email distribution for days! I use Outlook Express and I've had to manually, one at a time, paste the addresses into the group. It's taking hours and hours. I think it will be worth the effort. My blog is basically unknown (except to a few sweeties who comment!).

Today's picture is of a pair of brass earrings with a Swarovksi dangle.

She thought her mouth was a flower!

I went to the zoo with my mom, sister, neice, nephew and Amelia yesterday. Amelia wore my mom's cap into the greenhouse where the butterflies live. No sooner did we walk in when a butterfly suctioned herself to Amelia's mouth! She was trying to get nectar with by putting her tongue into her mouth. You can see Amelia's hand up. This is how it is in every picture. She was a little unsure, but let the butterfly sit there for a minute.

I think it was the orange cap!

Speaking of flowers, checkout my new vintage flower finds that made simple earrings with. These go with everything!

Have a great long weekend :)
