Treasures For Peeps

I am going to make it!!  After yet another trip to the Dr and a chest xray they tell me  that everything looks if only this "crud " would listen to them and leave me alone.......
My dear friends at Peeps were quite concerned...sending me get well wishes because my table was quite bare.  They needed some new pretties.  I made the Mr get busy on cutting up typewriters and I headed off to the workroom. 

On our trip to Buffalo I took particular note of all the beautiful chandeliers in the antique stores.
paired with a magnolia bead cap from Vintaj....I was very happy with this necklace.

At the School House Antiques I came across heaven in a both filled with skeleton keys.........

I used  silk sari fibers wrapped with wire and beads to make this lariat necklace......I have more leather cord on the way to make more of these !

I have been wanting to make one of these for so long......

Door escutcheon, rhinestones,crystals and pearls......what more could  a girl want?  Oh I hated parting with it!

We bypassed  a store that looked like  a comic book store....then took a better look and found all kinds of treasures....keys, a typewriter.....we had a great visit with the owner.

The shape of the key caught my eye...paired with an old earring ....lovely...

Happy shopping to our wonderful Peeps customers.....
