New Beveled Baubles

Did you hear that?  Well if you live near San Diego, you probably did.  Thunder!  I know it may sound silly to my friends in the Midwest, but we hardly ever get thunderstorms and it sure is fun.  I think the storm is coming up from Mexico, and I love this weather.  I thought I'd show you what I've been up to lately.  Above is a wrought iron Eiffel Tower I picked up at Vignettes, my favorite local antique shop.  I'm using it to display my ornaments at craft shows.
Here are some new charms I've been working on.  I've always loved the look of beveled glass, and that's what these are made of.  2 little chunks of glass soldered together to give the design some extra dimension.
I like them so much I think I'll make the whole alphabet of that "B" style above.  What do you think?
Here are the backs of some of the charms.  They measure 3/4"

Hope you are doing well, and have a wonderful day!
Take care,

Goodies I Bought & So Can You!

Hi and thanks for stopping by!  Looky what I have found lately.  Amazing goodies from some talented ladies.  Above is my living room mantel, and I've been decorating it with Halloween boxes, masks and witches hats from Roses Petite Maison.  Rosemary makes the prettiest glittery creations.   
I also just purchased this beautiful Halloween sign from Madai of Forget Me Nots from Wren Cottage.  She makes incredible glittery signs, including this Halloween sign.   Madai also has an Etsy shop to check out.Madai's glittery black Halloween sign is especially pretty under low light.  
Here is a closer view of Rosemary's mask.  
..and some of her boxes too.
My Halloween decorating is starting early, but it's so fun to enjoy it out a bit longer.
Here is a gorgeous dream sign I also purchased from Madai.
I wear these earrings almost every day!  Jeni from Eclectic J. Designs created them.  They are so unique and very light weight.  You can check out her website here.  Thank you to these talented ladies for their gorgeous creations.  I really appreciate them!
Take care,
