Date Night....


The hubby and I finally caught a break this past week and called a "Date Night". Yes, I speak of a fabulous night out on the town in our next town over, Pensacola to see the 'uber' talented "Tedeschi Trucks Band". My musician husband had been wanting to see this band for a while, so we heard they were coming and made it a date. So glad we did, they were awesome!

Dinner at a gorgeous local restaurant...


....I think he's tweeting! LOL

The nostalgic concert venue....
We love this venue because it's, well beautiful, and there's not a bad seat in the house....








...not bad seats, if I do say so myself  :~)


Taking a short little break this week from the jewelry designing....

Tassels with a Twist...


I'm back this weekend with some cool new tassel pieces. You know me and those tassels...I just can't seem to get enough of them! If it were up to me, everything in my wardrobe would have tassels on them...shoes, clothes, belts, the jewels, you get the picture :~)  So I was inspired this week to design some new pieces with a bit of a different design 'spin' on the tassel....


















All of these fun new tassel pieces will make their way to my Etsy shop this afternoon. Come see more pics of them there. 


Look how adorable this is....we were cruisin' down the highway the other day and look who pulled up beside us...



That little guy was so happy to have is face in the wind! 
Thanks for visiting me here in blogland. Be back very soon!

An Old Prayer...


Been a bit under the weather this past week, but it didn't stop me from doing what I love most, creating! In fact, it may have helped me recover faster from my flu-like ailments. Amazing what a little creativity can do for the soul, isn't it??? 
Here's a very special piece I just finished...


I found this little treasure on my last trip to England. It was so dusty and chippy and had years of love and cherish upon it. It's such a sweet little French prayer card under original glass and antique brass!














 





All these new pieces coming to my Etsy shop later today! 
Thanks for stopping by!

Bangles and Baubles.....


Oh my what a week..... and where oh where did it go so fast?!? I have been quite the busy little bee this past week with large custom orders, my hubby's birthday celebration, and opening a new location in my next little town over. Today I was asking myself, why in the world did I take on so much this week? But I have managed to come through it mildly unhurt and with most of my scruples intact...I think ;~) I also was able to create a few new pieces coming to the Etsy shop for this Sunday...here's a little preview...

The new shop location...



...and this week's new pieces...

Caviar Party...


I have to share with you this post my first ever caviar tasting experience! Yes, I said first ever, and I really don't know what took 40 something years to get to trying these delicate and fabulous little morsels. It was quite yummy especially with a bottle of stunning French champagne.






...the caviar was so delicious with a little spot of creme fraiche...



...the champagne, which I highly recommend, was the French brut Piper-Heidsieck and it was really the 'icing on the cake' at my first ever caviar party!



Me enjoying my first taste of caviar... but of course, not my first taste of champagne. LOL. 



Fun was had by all at the caviar party...



Oh and some just finished new pieces coming to my Etsy shop this Sunday afternoon....





...I have a fabulous and unique meerschaum creation that will be there...







..and these awesome antique original French medal and marcasite bird earrings will be there too...






Come join me on  "Superjewel Sunday" (my spin on Superbowl Sunday) in my Etsy shop where I'll post more pics of all of my latest designs. Have a fun and safe weekend everyone!
