Where's The Party ?

Don't you just love a well dressed deer. Personally, I have a soft spot for deer whether they are dressed or not and I just love these charming invitations. They are being offered as a free download over at the Mercantile Muse blog. Pamela puts up some of her wonderful digital images for free download on a fairly regular basis. You should check both the blog and the Etsy shop

December is Upon Us

It's December already! Time sure flies. A look out the window confirms that it is indeed winter.

I've gotten some new gems and having a lot of fun making up some new wintry jewelry. Here's one of them using some gorgeous Labradorite and tiny Garnets and lustrous Freshwater Coin Pearls. I think it's a wonderful combination. Especially set off with the beautiful warm black antiqued brass chain.

Get Stuffed :)

I woke up this morning to find a treasury that I made a couple of days ago had made it to the front page. Great start to the day! Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!!

Frost On The Pumpkin

It's November. Late Fall. It's getting colder. Winter is definitely on it's way. We actually got some snow on Friday. Not the pretty kind of snow, just wet and cold.  I always have a hard time letting go of summer. I'm one of the last ones to give up on wearing shorts and putting away the flip flops.  I hate to have to wear socks.  But I live in the Pacific Northwest and there comes a point where you really have to accept that it is cold. I was quite happy with my pumpkin harvest this year.  Here's a pic of the ones that made it onto the front porch

The colors inspired this bracelet. I named it Frost on the Pumpkin :)

October Skies

Friday was a day of such gorgeous skies from beginning to end. The rising sun outside my bedroom window

And that evening held this glorious rainbow
It ended with twinkling stars and wispy clouds and a perfect moon. Alas, I am not skilled enough to take a picture that would do it any kind of justice at all so...

This is one of the sunflowers from the arrangements I made for a recent wedding reception. It was held in a local park, the weather was perfect and a good time was had by all. I tried to capture some of the beauty of these glorious flowers in this bracelet -

It's My Etsyversary

Today marks one year on Etsy. Use Coupon Code  ETSYVERSARY  to get 20% off through the weekend 

Doesn't really seem like it's been a whole year. I've sure learned a lot and on the whole it's been a great experience. I'm about to go back to work full time in the accounting world so we'll see how well I can keep up with the shop. I didn't really feel like there were enough hours in the day before so I think I'm justifiably concerned. I know I'll need the creative outlet even more than ever. So -  Wish me luck :)

Life is Just a Bowl of Cherries

This is probably the most impressive thing in my yard right now. Quite the cherry harvest :)
