Georgia in Springtime....

Image
Hi Sweet Friends,

I first want to say hello to my
newest followers!!! Welcome
dear ladies! I hope you will
enjoy coming here and I will
be visiting you as well!!!

Today I want to share with
you all some pictures of
my Roses...I thought you
would like to take a few minutes
and enjoy natures beauty here
in Georgia!!! It is so gorgeous here
in the Springtime. This is my favorite
time of the year here in the south.

Today is just a perfect temp,
in the 70's and low humidity.



The lake photos are of our
largest lake here in Georgia
it is called Lake Lanier.
There is fishing and boating
on the lake. The color of the water
was a lovely green/blue yesterday
on Easter. We took a bit of a ride
for the afternoon before we came back
to our Easter dinner. I did not do a typical
Easter dinner...I bought a lovely roast and
put it in the crock pot with fresh veggies.
I made some red potatoes and lovely
rolls with a small salad.
Ice cream was for dessert!

 One of my sweet roses up close!

Making Some Handmade Jewelry....

Image
Hi Sweeties!!



I thought I would do a quick post and show
all of you what I have been up to lately!


This first gorgeous cuff bracelet is for my
future Daughter-in-law. My oldest son and
his fiance' will be getting married soon and
I am making a few pieces for her special day!!
White satin ribbons will keep the cuff in place on her wrist.




I have been busy making some button bracelets for my booth as well.

The center button is an earring that I took the clip off of and then used my E6000 glue to mount it
on a MOP button. I also added some rhinestones
and little pearls to the other buttons. I think it came out really cute!
 This button bracelet I made is all mother of Pearl
buttons, and I also attached some rhinestones
to the top of each one! The flower in the middle
was also a button that I snipped the bottom off
of. Sorry this picture is not too good. The
different hues of the mother of pearl buttons
is so stunning in the light, I wish I could have
captured it for you.


I also have …

A Vintage Spring Jar for my Swap partner!!!

Image
Hi Dear Friends,


Today I wanted to share the
Vintage Spring Jar that I
made for Laurie my swap
partner.


The little bird house was an unpainted
little house that I had for awhile. I first
painted it with some acrylic cream paint,
which I had already used to paint the lid
with.

I used some garden themed paper I had to
then glue onto the little house.
the roof is made with some vintage
wall paper.




I used some moss to tuck in where
the flowers were on the lid.
I had bought a set of enameled
birds and used one for this little
house...isn't he cute!!


 The flowers around the jar were
wound with wire on a very small white
picket fence I had that I painted in cream.
I also used some glitter around the edge
of the lid.












Here are some items I tucked into the jar for
Laurie!! We were suppose to include at least
half the jar with vintage items. I had a vintage Hankie,
Buttons, Green velvet ribbon and trim...etc.


 I gave Laurie a cuff bracelet with a detachable crown pin.           I also made …
