Sneak Peek...

Hello Everyone out there in blogland!!!! I've been busy, busy, busy lately trying to fill a 40 piece order going to a Christmas Market in Tennessee. Here's a little sneak peek into just a few of the 40 pieces along with a couple of pieces that will make a detour into my Etsy shop....




Check out the sweet little French shrine below, that I found on my recent trip to Belgium...
I did not realize this at the time, but the flea market we went to while visiting Belgium is held in the oldest city in the country. That will make for some good antiquing, don't ya think?






I just adore old award medals like the one I used below....
...I especially love the fact that someone came in second place in "something mysterious" on April 1st, 1920 and it's all inscribed beautifully on the front of the award.


An antique LeeDawl compass makes a real statement in the piece below...



...and Oh, the colors in this French inspired pair of earrings...



Some beautiful rocks and pearls glow on these necklace's strands....





Please don't forget about my blog giveaway I currently have going on! I am giving these sweet little sterling bird earrings to one lucky lady or... guy for that matter. All you have to do is leave me a comment anywhere on my blog and I will automatically put you in the hat pickin'!!! Good luck to you all, I will announce the winner next week....

Au Revoir mes bonbons!!!
