 I decided I wanted to make some junk jewelry necklaces for a few Christmas gifts.  This first one I made for my friend and boss.  I love the colors in this and how it turned out.

 Lacy was the lucky recipient of my second piece.  She was gifted a serape dress from the King Ranch catalog so I wanted to add something a little special.
 It is a western/indian design.  Looks great on her!  Of course, what wouldn't.  Hate to brag, but she is just amazingly beautiful.
 So .... When I opened my gift from Andy I received these three wonderful books on creating jewelry.
 These people are amazingly talented.  I have just thumbed through the pages over and over again.
 So....Next I'm going to make me a long list of the materials I need and go do some serious metal shopping.  Hopefully I can make the time to create some fun things for Warrenton.  If not, maybe my Etsy store.  Stay tuned......Susan

New Etsy Additions

 I recently added these items to my Etsy store.
I just love the robin's egg blue throw pillows.  
They are so soft.
This little tray I've had for quite some time.
It needs a good new home!
There are so many, many things I need to get loaded into the store.
If I could just add a few things every night.  That would be a good goal!  We'll see what happens.  Soon.....Susan

What a beautiful day!

This photo explains it all!

We spent most of the weekend working on junk (I mean treasures)!  Cleaning, sorting, packing, moving, etc.  We even found some things we forgot we had!  
What a beautiful day today turned out to be.  The warm sun was much appreciated after a full week of gloom.  The much needed rain is awesome.  If you live in the country you can already see the little winter grass growing.  It is amazing what a rain will do.  Speaking of rain, I realized today that we still have a rain storage barrel on a stand for sale.  We need to put a sign on it I think, no one knows what it is.  

Andy has had 2 weeks of physical therapy behind him now and he is getting stronger every day.  He did too much yesterday, but was on a roll to get some things done.  We are looking forward to a lot of good days!  Have a great week.......Susan
