Ready For Europe...

Bonjour mes amis!!! Well I must begin today by sincerely apologizing for not being more efficient this week on my posting....but, you know that thing I've been rambling on about for several weeks has finally come up. I travel this weekend to Europe and the excitement is almost unbearable! Getting ready for a trip this big, has been, well you know, a bit overwhelming, but I am happy to say, I am all ready to go! Today's post will be the last jewelry post for a while as I will be taking a short break so I can shop and photograph wonderful Europe. Please stop by and visit as I will continue posting during my trip. You can see all my stops as I experience them too!

Some of the pieces I have been working on this week before I hang up my jewelry making tools for a short while...


A vintage monogrammed special order bracelet...
...yes, I am loving my sweet little vintage French bows. I just can't seem to get enough of them!!!

Beautiful old sacred hearts with chippy old rosary pearls....



Rhinestone earrings with some Victorian flair...FAB...



Sweet little sterling cherubs with chains and faux vintage pearls...LOVE....






...and some gorgeous Georgian paste and blue gemstone earrings...FUN...




Also, I wanted to remind all of you about my giveaway I have going on. All you have to do to get your name in the drawing is leave me a comment anywhere on my blog about anything your heart's desire! If you have already left a comment since I begun the giveaway, you don't have to leave another, unless you want too :~)).
(I love your verbal thoughts!)

Take care my friends, and I will see you next week for that report from Europe!

I can't wait to see what you find! I LOVE those chandelier earrings. I bet the colored stones pick up the light and sparkle like crazy.
Have the time of your life!

Christine, Again??:) Lucky you!! I'm so glad you're getting to go when it's a bit warmer this time. Your sister's backyard view is stunning. I've done very little blog reading for quite some time, so I've got to catch up....
