Wordless White Wednesday (well almost wordless)

I had seen a few of these coin purse necklaces and thought they were so cool that I thought I would try one for myself. Chippys makes some really cool ones so if you want to see some spectacular ones check her out!
The number 5 for my 5 kids, a heart with a t. on it and I have been saving that fabulous bee for a while now, waiting for the perfect project. taadaa!

Cleaning house and so redecorated the white mantel... the dust alone told me it was about time!

I'm joining the White Wednesday party over at Faded Charm, Thanks Kathleen!

I recently took on a part time job and so need to get ready for work ( that sounds crazy to me) I haven't worked outside the house since Max was born!

Anyway... gotta go try to look presentable and not smell like furniture polish...

Thanks for stopping by, Theresa xoxo

    The little purse/pendant is BeeUtiful! Such a wonderful little reminder of what's important in your life...5!

  4. Hey Lady,
    I Love your White Post ~ Heck, I Always Love All Your Posts..... That little Purse Necklace Creations is Fabulous, Love the Mantel re-do too! One of these days, I am going to take a trip up to see you ~ it would be a shame to live so close & Not Meet.... I have been following a blog lately that has a ton of photos from Marshall, Michigan ~ I Want to go there too!

    btw ~ Friday I am hoping to hit some of the US 12's Michigan's Longest Garage Sales - Detroit to Holland, I am sure I may only make it to Jackson, but still Excited.... all hinges on My Daughter & the Grands, so I am keeping My fingers Crossed

  5. Hi Theresa,
    That change purse necklace is the cutest thing ever! I love the little bumble bee, so cute.
    Your mantle looks lovely too.

    Good luck on your new job.


  6. cute was that coin purse necklace??? I like the thought that you put into the embellishments....the "5" for your kids and the letter "T". The rosette and the bee were the perfect finishing touches.
    Have fun with your new part time job.

  7. Beautiful and very unique idea. Thanks for sharing. ~~Sherry~~

  8. Love, love, LOVE the necklace and am jealous of your beautiful mantle...even tho it's not nice to be jealous. :)


    Thanks for stopping by!

  9. AHHH Theresa, this is great, and I love that you added the five for your kids.
    SO SWEET. I just found that they are selling these clasp closures again and was just debating on what to use them for.
    Thanks for the inspiration and the push to try something new.
    Your mantel is glowing, what charm to have a mantel in the house. It is lovely.
    Take care and don't work to hard

  10. Sweet! How fun to try something new. Good luck with your new job. :) I still have two weeks before I have to go back to work. Best wishes, Tammy

  11. Love your coin purse necklace, I have one and wear it all the time!

    You mean we are supposed to dust? I always get into moving things around when I need to dust! What's up with that? Guess I just like to change things up once a year! LOL!


  12. I just love your change purse neckless it's gorgeous!!! Love the flower and bumble bee on it too! Blessings~~~ Daphne

  13. Great necklace, the whole post! Hope the new job is fun and rewarding...


  14. Hi Threresa,
    I am totally laughing, I saw your 612 Riverside and Wordless Wednesday on my sidebar and I thought to myself, "Now that is an oxymoron if I ever read one" then went on to read your, well almost! I adore you...

    Hope all goes well with the new job. Brave woman you are. And I hope you only smelled a tiny bit like furniture polish!

    Love your new necklace

  15. Hi Theresa, That is a pretty little change purse, how adorable. I also love the crown. Good luck on your new job. Have a good weekend.

  16. Hi Theresa,
    Oh, I love the purse!!! It's gorgeous. And I love the mantle too...I just did mine yesterday...we must be thinking alike! Have a beautiful, blessed weekend.

  17. My Creative Spirit challenge runs thru tomorrow...I'd love it if you'd link this would be awesome because it's so beautiful.

  18. Oh, Theresa, Thank you so much for linking this up!!! That purse is amazing!!!
    I am so happy that you decided to share your "creative spirit" with everyone!
    The challenge will now be every month on the 8th and you can link up anything you want...even an old post...and you don't have to make anything...if you decorated your house or took a photo, that's fine's all about having fun!

  19. Theresa, I just love that bee, and the necklace purse you made!!!! Gosh that little bee is so sweet! I have seen some of those around but never thought to try and make one......looks like fun though!
    How is the new job going? Must feel liberating after being home for to spend on treats, woo hooo!!

  20. Well I know I am glad you couldn't stay wordless :) That must be one reason I like you so much :)

    I LOVE the necklace & my fave part is that little 5 & what it stands for! But really T it is gorgeous!

  21. Cute necklace! I need to try one of those. I actually have my grandpa's old coin purse that would be perfect. And it looks great hanging on your mannequin.

  22. Hi Theresa, thank you so much for your comment on my blog. Of course I had to come over and check out your blog. LOVE it! I've always been fasinated with altered art. I love the stories they tell. Your necklace is fabulous!

  23. Hi Theresa,

    I love the coin purse necklaces. I've seen a few of them around. I'll go take a look at the link you gave.

    Did you just start your part time job? Hope it's going well for you and that you like it. I, too, am a homebody at heart.

    I'm visiting for White Wednesday...yes, a bit late!♥

    Happy Day,
    Stephanie ♥

  24. Looks great and that purse is killer. If dust is the decorating factor I need to redecorate the whole house.
    I always wonder how can it be dusty when I'm never there:)) must be the long haired kitty!
    The crown is amazing too btw.

  25. Hi Theresa! Adore your necklace creation! How perfectly the bee pin looks with that amazing flower too! Looks like you've been a busy bee, and now a job outside the house. I hope you enjoy it. Thank you so much for dropping by to see me. Your sweet comment made my day! Have a wonderful week. ~ Angela

  26. Wow, I think your change purse is just fabulous!
    I would be so proud to carry that, great job. :-)

    Have a wonderful week!

  27. I love the coin purse, besides being cute, it could also be so practical, sometimes I just need to carry a little cash! Thank you for trying to get your family to show some interest in the Romantic Homes article LOL! Good luck, I could hardly get my family to look. What I found out was that even though RH is huge in our world, not many people in the rest of the world have heard of it, hard to imagine! I can't imagine the world without it! Love your blog!

  28. crown on shippy statue ... is a.d.o.r.a.b.l.e.

  30. I love little mini things and purses, this is the perfect pretty combo and such a beautiful piece to wear. Sharyn@ LaVienChic
