Shame on Me!

Okay, Boy have I been a slacker when it comes to blogging! I will endeavor to do better! Ha famous last words! I guess I really need to catch up on the past year plus!
Hmmm let's see, important things first. I have a grandson, Tucker Lee. He will be 1 in November! Isn't he a doll baby?
Gosh, they sure do grow fast! Boy he sure brings joy to my life! There is always a smile on that sweet little face of his! God has surely blessed me.
I have been busy in my shop and have expanded it to include cards and scrapbooking as well. My Christmas cards are up and ready for buyers. Here are some of my favorites:

My Fall jewelry pieces are too cool! Bold Bright and Colorful! Check them out!

And I can't forget to brag about my top seller! My handmade magnetic scarf pins. To date I have sold over a dozen of them! Woohoo! Here's a few of the ones I have in stock now!


Beautiful aren't they?
Last week end I did my first show in over a year! Boy, I had forgotten how much work it is to get ready for one! But I got it all together with the help of my sister! Here are some shots from the show!

Well that's a quick catch up of the most important things that have happened! I will do better!!

 I had a perfectly delightful visit at Under the Mango Tree Oasis, in downtown Fredericksburg, Vrginia in early May. I saw so many beautiful handmade items and works of art and met a marvelous shop owner!  I am proud to announce that my magnetic scarf pins and brooches are now featured in this lovely shop! Needless to say, I am thrilled by this news!! Check out some examples of my handiwork!

Be sure to stop by Under the Mango Tree Oasis on face book and check out this beautiful shop and it's amazing owner!

Craft Show

Wow, It's been like forever since I blogged!  I have been busy! 
My jewelry is keeping me busy indeed!
In late March, I did a local Spring Craft Show at Courtland High School. Here's a  peek at what I took with me on the road!

It was a long day and not as many sales as I would like, but it was great getting my name out in public!

Glorious Sunflowers

Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow. It's what sunflowers do.
Helen Keller

I have always been in awe of these regal beauties: standing tall, heads held high as if they are proud to exist. What a glorious sight, their bright, golden yellow blossoms against the rich, blue skies! No wonder they are proud!

Today's Shop of the Day, GrapeVineCeramicsGft: , has some stunning Sunflower gifts. Eye catching indeed, in their golden yellows and deep cobalt blues! Let's take a look!

The perfect size for that handful of Dandelions your toddler picked for you!
What a cutie! The vase and the toddler too of course!

A Basket of Beauty for sure!
I can see them as a center piece resting on candle sticks of different heights; can't you?

Hang them on your tree in December and in your window the rest of the year!
Have that bright, sunny mood all year!

Even weeds would look beautiful in this stunning piece!
I don't think anyone would be looking at what it was holding; do you?

  GrapeVineCeramicsGft: , has other wonderful gifts too ranging from buttons, to keepsake boxes, to figurines! All  handmade; all beautiful! A visit to their Etsy shop is a MUST!
