I Bet You Forgot About The Washers!



 
I have had washers laying around here waiting on me....
they have been moved and moved and waited and waited........
it was time for me to create.....
I am part of a booth vending at
Junk Jubliee in Des Moines
so decided I needed to use them up!
I love the color combinations 





No 2 will ever be the same......
 
 

I of course have been playing with silverware too...
 
 
So if you are  here in Iowa
come visit the
Pink Begonia Antiques booth
April 25-27
we will have lots of cool stuff!!

AJE February Challenge..... Melissa Meman


February 2014 Component of the Month...Fluttering Hearts
Melissa Meman





  I was recently so lucky to win a focal from the talented Melissa Meman for the February AJE challenge.  
 I sat down and started on my creation....
THEN
The Flu bug hit
I loved it so much
I shared it with the Mr.
(he actually still loves me.....)
today is the first time I have stayed up right for more than a half hour.......
I looked at what I had started
showed it to the loving Mr.
we both agreed
NO
I started over ...
I am not sure this is what I will end up with....
but it is where I am now.....
 
I do like the multi colored stones with the focal. 
 I am concerned about the weight of them...
When my mind is better focused I will sit down and play more.
 
Thank you so much Melissa for the beautiful focal.
I promise I will do you proud.

You can visit Art Jewelry Elements  to view everyone's creations!

The Upper Peninsula of Michigan


 

 
 
 
 
Some favorite pictures .....
 
 

The colors
 of fall
 
 
Surfing the lake......
 
 
Inspiration for jewelry...
 
 
 
Birds.........
 
we had quite the laugh at this one.....don't think the owl is doing his job....
 


The rest of the birds had already flown the coop for the season.....these swan's stayed just for us!!





 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
We had a great time watching the wind blow on the beach....
 
 
 





 
 
 
 
 
The view out our cabin door....so peaceful.....
see that little speck...a duck blind
come sun up......
BOOM!
