Pretty Baubles


I have a thing about jewelry. I love it all. Well, no, I love most of it. I find that I make most of my jewelry, 1. because I know what I like and , more importantly, 2. I'm cheap, I mean thrifty, and it is so much cheaper to make it myself. This weeks whip up was "chic to classic" (or was that Classic to chic... no matter). What is more classic than pearls? So I whipped up some new baubles for the week. I have had these beads for awhile so it was nice to finally get them made into something. I like to wrap the long strand twice around my neck. The clasp is so pretty and the beads all heat up on my skin which I love. It is made with peruvian opal, adventurine (?) pearls and laboradite. The green beads with the pearls are chalcedony and the pearls are tiny and drilled offset which I think looks really nice. I think the earrings are my favorite. Funny thing about shorter hair is that you dont really see my earrings much because my hair is not long enough to pull back and it hangs just below my ears. These are a tad larger so I think they will show a bit more. At any rate, I am happy with them and excited to have something new to wear tomorrow.

Check out the lettuce! Looks so great, and in the nick of time. The tree above the planter is leafing out now so the sun that fed this gorgeous lettuce is all filtered now. That means out with the lettuce and in with my begonias. I got a nice piece of Dubliner cheese to go in our salad. Too good!

Lastly, I was weeding up a storm this weekend ,prepping the garden for new plantings and mulch and who should be peering out at me? We hear the frogs all the time but they are pretty shy about being seen. What a sweet little gaurdian of the garden. Have a great week!

Your lettuce looks so great in with the pansies! Modern arrangement yet edible at the same time. We found a little green frog too the other day. I have heard them off and on, but never found one. I'm so glad gardening season is finally here.

I really do have faith in all the methods you’ve displayed to
your article. These are pretty effective
and can undoubtedly function. Nevertheless, the blogposts have become limited for newbies.
Could an individual be sure to stretch them a lttle bit from up coming occasion?
Wanted post.
