Somerset Studio is out!

So excited! Found out that some of the book stores had the new "Somerset Studio" and I ran right out to get my copy! Went to Barnes and Noble because a friend told me she saw it, went there and ours didn't have it, bummer! But then I went to Border's and they were holding a copy for me. So, as you can see I'm in it and I bought 2 copies, why, I don't know, maybe I'll frame one! I'll also be in "Where Women Create and Marie Vol.1. So I'll be stalking the stores for those copies too, haha!
Oh...don't forget about my giveaway below, as it ends at midnight Sunday!

Attic Findings!

So my hubby decided it's time to see what we've been hoarding in the attic all these years, haha! Well, his findings brought on some real emotions, these little smurfs were my kids and I'm not going to tell you how old my kids are but believe me when I say these ARE vintage, lol!
More pics to come, clothes, baby shoes, even a cute shirt we bought on a trip to Hawaii for our son!

My New Earrings Arrived!

My new earrings arrived today in the mail! I love them! Thank you Kathi! They are "vintage cotton pearls" made in Japan in the 1940's. They have the most beautiful pearl finish I've ever seen on a pearl. If you want to know more about them check out her blog.
Don't forget to check out my giveaway below!


I've decided to switch gears here a little. I had just posted my new giveaway was coming up as soon as I designed something today......well on second thought, I decided this was going to be my next giveaway! So perfect for Spring and Summer! I only sell these at my shows or if someone contacts me! I have a necklace with small ones on a chain in my sweet romance shop.

This beautiful white flower I hand made from a vintage blouse. Looks beautiful on a sweater, a jacket or even a purse. Yes...a purse! I have one pinned on 2 different spring and summer purses and get loads of comments!

All you have to do is go to my Lollishop "sweet romance" and come back here and tell me in the comments your favorite item in my Lollishop! So simple, unlike my last giveaway, lol!

Giveaway starts NOW and ends at Midnight on Sunday March 1, 2009! I will draw 1 name from all who commented......Good luck to everyone!
Almost will also recieve something extra special in your package if you're the winner! It's something in my Lollishop now!!!!

Here Comes The Sun!

Here's a few items in my Etsy shop to share with you! The pink beads and all the blue ones are vintage beads. All in limited supply!

Today was going to be a great day for taking pictures! Woke up kinda late this morning, came downstairs and knew I better start taking pics before I finish the newspaper and my coffee. The forecast said it wasn't going to be out all day, so I took some pics of new jewelry I made last night and a few pieces that needed better pics.
All three pieces are listed in my etsy shop!
And by the way, sun keeps going in and out with on and off snow! So it's a good thing I got my picture taking done.
Hope you having a wonderful Sunday! More new picture tomorrow .

New Items!

New items listed in my shop! Glass pendant with Eiffel Tower image, a beautiful pair of vintage bead earrings with "vintaj" brass bead caps! The vintage lilac opalescent rosebuds are so pretty! And then there's the clear glass vintage beads that I attached "vintaj" brass bead caps and lever back wires.

We have a major snow storm possible, always depends which path it decides to take. We love the snow but I'm anxious for spring and summer. We've had a lot of snow this winter but I am so ready for Spring and Summer as I'm sure you all are!

We are going to Florida in March so I think it's going to be a good day to do a little shopping for some new summer clothes!

Have a wonderful weekend!

My New Necklace!

Thought I'd share one of my new necklaces just listed in my Etsy shop. I came across these vintage crown settings in raw brass and of coarse the first thing I had to do was give them a beautiful brass patina. I then went through my many vintage look images and picked this beautiful flower for my first one. For this one I attached a vintage brass finding with a rhinestone. It hangs on "vintaj" brass chain with my handmade brass clasp. I love this and hope you do too!
