Gems, Pearls, And Lariats...


Yes, it was that time of year again....time to go and play in the gems and pearls at our local town's annual gemstone show. And, I must say, we have the two best pearl and gemstone dealers that always show up and bring their "A" game! Just look at this stock of pearls....





And the best quality gems hand cut right here in the good ol' USA....


I could have easily went to the poor house shopping this show!!!!


I also have some finished Lariats going to the shop this afternoon...


Simple, sweet, and oh so elegant!












See more pictures of them at my Etsy shop later today!
Happy 'football' Sunday everyone!!!!

R'nR' At It's Finest...


Hello from the mountains of North Carolina! Been enjoying life and taking a short little break from 'the bench' to recharge and refresh the creative flow.


I've also been doing a little antiquing...check out this vintage Waterford Crystal chandelier I found for a most excellent price (which I successfully talked myself out of buying)....


...I've also managed to blow my diet into oblivion (an easy enough task)...


...I've enjoyed a hand crafted beer or two...


....been warming my bones by the fire...

...it's COLD up here for us Floridians!


....and I'm also getting mentally ready to attempt this tomorrow...

...as a Florida girl, this kind of event doesn't happen too much, so please pray for me! LOL!!!

Happy Winter everyone...I hope you have found your 'happy place' this week!

...fun with the new selfie stick...there were hours of fun with this crazy Christmas gift!...





Steve, not happy with his Christmas decor for the Christmas Eve festivities...



...and WooHoo! after all of that, I did manage to get some work done...
