As promised...

As promised, here are some photos of my jewelry buy.

The Jewels

One bag of many...some earrings

Signed and unsigned Weiss

Sorry about the glare in some of my photos. I think I will have to start hinting for a camera that takes better close ups. Any suggestions?

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe weekend!

We were given a collage sheet for July design project...2 projects for July. First photo, I created a die cut of an image for this project. I embellished with paper flowers, vintage buttons, vintage key, and vintage lace & seam ribbon.
Second project, I used a vintage bottle, black rub-ons, and embellished with vintage laces, vintage chandelier crystals, and a vintage button.

This is the second in a series for our master bedroom redesign. I used a vintage platter, vintage image, vintage dollie, vintage laces, and vintage vintage buttons & ear rings.

Sorry for the bad photos for this post...problems with lighting.

Weekend trip to Fairhope, AL

This weekend Don and I went to visit my friend, Mary, in Fairhope at her summer home. What a wonderful town! It was great seeing Mary...she hasn't changed in 7 years since I last saw her! BTW, she loves hats and antiquing as much as I love do!

Wonderful antique shops!

I will post my finds later in the week. Hope everyone has a wonderful and safe week!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend.
This morning I created this collage using everything vintage...silver tray, cabinet card, vintage dollies and laces, vintage pearl necklace, and vintage earrings. For some reason, I just realized that my recent collages include vintage ivory, tan, and/or brown elements. I have no idea as to why I am drawn to these colors for creating. My favorite colors are pinks and blues.

I will probably post this in my Etsy store later this week.
I have again changed my blog banner! I just love playing with Photoshop so this is a way to show my digital work.
Hope everyone has a wonderful and safe day!
Hugs, Sharon
