in the jewelry box again!!! It has been a while since I have made some necklaces and I had a ball making these 5. I just love the process of taking a bunch of jewelry apart and then putting the pieces back together in different combinations. So much fun and it makes me feel like a kid again dressing up with my great-grandma's jewelry.

Waiting for Spring

I am anxiously awaiting the Spring weather so that I can get back to rooting around at flea markets and garage sales to find all those rusty, worn out goodies to create with! We have had a horrible winter and I am ready to get out into the sunshine and get to pickin. I am dipping into my precious reserves to create with but I am still creating away!

This little flower has put me into the Spring mood and I cannot wait to see the real things blossoming.

The colors in the wood plinth made me also think of Spring with the yellow, purble, blue and green peeking through.

I so love this quote

This large change purse was just begging for a chain and a pretty Spring flower to be attached, along with some lace and bling of course!

This piece would not photograph well for me but I hope you can get an idea of what it is like. I had an old coffee tin that made the perfect little home for this sweet pair of children and I attached it to a metal base with fabric wrapped wires entwined. I think that lace and little butterfly added a touch of Spring.
So please Mother Nature can you stop the snow, the rains and the flooding we have been beseiged with and bring us a little Spring weather here in Northeast Ohio, pretty please???
