Saturday was a work day for me...
(if you can call this work!)
It was a day that flew by, and as I made dinner I took the time
to actually think about how many hours I had been
sitting at my table working on new pieces to list.
I started the day by making some of these charms.
Vintage script on a shell bead covered in resin.
Then on to homemade donuts for Hannah and her 4 girlfriends that spent the night.
(I wake up about the time they are falling asleep!)
The house was loud, crazy, silly...
just the way we like it on a Saturday morning, and then
as quickly as they showed up on my doorstop and filled the house,
Not just the girls, but Duane - he had a class meeting to go to,
and Max had a play date.
You know what that meant?
I was alone on a Saturday!
That does NOT happen around here!
I checked the mail and WOOHOO my prize from
Carole's giveaway had arrived!
Could the timing be any better?
Quiet house, and now this beautiful magazine is here for me to pour threw!
If you have never seen this magazine and love
the simple style of natural beauty and white and the mix of shabby minimalist industrial farmhouse,
then I highly recommend that you treat yourself to it.
It is really the prettiest magazine (more of a book really)
that I have ever seen.
It makes me want to redecorate my house every time I go through it!
...and of course tell Carole of Maynard Greenhouse that I sent you!
I know that she always sends them out with the prettiest wrapping!
this is how my special prize arrived!
I sat right down with my coffee, in my quiet house and devoured every page!
and then I watched episode after episode of
Downton Abbey while I made necklaces.
What a great afternoon!
Look what was inside of the tissue paper...
this sweet butterfly now rests on my inspiration board!
love all of the glitter!
and the cross inspired a new round of picnik play!
The cross is wire wrapped with pearls,
all rusty, wire and pearls, a great combination!
Thank you Carole!
I love all of my presents!!
I have a couple of more necklaces to show you but they will
have to wait until next time,
today is a busy day!
As of right now I have a couple of orders to get out
and about 1/2 dozen errands to run for some of the kids.
see you soon!
