Catching Up...

 
Happy weekend everyone! I'm back from a refreshing and relaxing little trip to our new little fun place in the sun, and I have been playing catch up for the past couple of days. I have managed to finish a couple of new, very special pieces that will debut in my Etsy shop tonight.
I also have been busy re-stocking my local hometown locations. We have had a really busy summer tourist season down here this year, and my jewelry has been very well received by our Florida visitors, even though they aren't very "beachy". Lol.
Here is a little preview of the new goodies coming tonight....
 





 
 
While I was up in my "happy place" this past week, I found some gorgeous old chains...
 
 
 
...these are going to be fabulous to create with...

 
 
...I was so ecstatic when I found these old Miriam Haskell chains...

 
 
and this gorgeous old European silver woven chain....



 
 
 
...and old watch chains are always a super score!...

 
 
 
And, as promised, here are some photos of our new home away from home...

 
...there will be lots of work to be done to give it our personal touch...and I will post pictures here of the before and afters.
 
 
This is our beautiful yard...

 
 
...this is our long, winding driveway...

 
 
...our fun spot on the deck...

 
 
...our first house guest...

 
...look at the size of this creature!

 
....and the magnificent views from our deck....




 
...how inspiring....
Now, to set up a work bench for creating!!!
 
The trip home...

 
 
Thank you for stopping by to see my week in pictures!!!

 
See you in a few days with more from the design studio with some of those new chains!

I am smiling at the pup picture, so cute. Sophie is always on my lap in the car.

Beautiful necklaces, Christine. Your talent never ceases to amaze me.

Love your cabin in the mountains. Everyone here does the same but they are trying to escape the heat.
