French Inspiration...


Hello there jewelry loving friends! Finished up five new necklaces this past week that all feature some of those French pieces that I just got in! Wowzers, such great inspiration came out of that batch of goodies! Here's what transpired...

















We also finished up the flooring this past week, which was a major ordeal. But, at least the crew installing it was so fast, friendly, and professional. They did a wonderful job and I am a happy camper!...








And onto this week's project....wallpaper! The French lion crest below will be in my master bath, because you know I gotta have something French going on somewhere...lol. Will be back next weekend with some "after" photos of what I tackle. I plan to be doing many wallpaper projects in this house, as I am currently obsessed with all things wallpaper.



We were blessed with a rainbow over the ridge this past week too...


This view just doesn't ever get old....and trust me...I am not taking it for granted for one second.
So Grateful and Blessed 


All five of the new piece headed to my Etsy shop this afternoon. Come and visit them and me there.


Oh, and next week....I promise to have some earrings in the shop offerings!!!
Have a great week everyone!

French Shipment...


Hello everyone...stopping by the blog today to show you bits from my latest big time score of French delicacies. There will be no jewelry drop today as I am getting ready to undertake a major home renovation tomorrow....our new flooring, and on BOTH levels of the house, so there will be no escaping the turmoil! Luckily the installation crew is saying it will only take 4-5 days, fingers crossed this deems to be true.

But, in the meantime, here is a sneak peek at some of the new French pieces.... I'm in complete Heaven playing in these special pieces!...






Some projects we've been working on lately and before the new floors come in...

project #119 (other projects before this, not so glamorous....lol)
Fireplace makeover...


...stained mantle, painted fireplace screen, cleaned stone, and adorable stained cherub corbels....




Project #148...
currently on the epic wallpaper search...as I plan to wallpaper many rooms in the house. I'm wallpaper obsessed these days.... I can't seem to get enough of it!






And, oh happy day!...scheduled tomorrow....'Bye, Bye' to the hideous blue 80's carpet and kitchen linoleum tiling.
Good Riddance, I say!... and it couldn't come soon enough. Will post the after pics this coming weekend, in hopes they will be finished with the new flooring in time for the next blog post...fingers and toes crossed!



...and still enjoying the mountain's abundance of beauty...




Let me know if you see a piece that catches your eye from the latest French confection shipment...I would be delighted to make you that special custom French jewel you have been longing for!
Be back soon my friends, with tales from the land of the blue carpet..no more!

Safari Soiree...


Happy July everyone! Hope your 4th was amazing and full of fun things and celebration! As for me, I've been staying quite busy with the house...there seems to be a new project lurking around every corner and some of them not so fun! Like for instance, re-locating the tiny bat family that was living under our shutters for the last several months. Cute and creepy little critters, but love having them around for the environment and would never dream of hurting them. 
I have managed to create a few new pieces this week and they all bring an African safari theme...I guess these mountains have inspired some far off destinations in my imagination. Can't complain about that...I've been needing some good inspiration as of late. Here's a peek at what's coming to my Etsy shop early this afternoon..















There's also been a lot of deck lingering lately...


...admiring all of the forest around us' beautiful and magical bounty...


...and staring at lots of rainbows.... Pinch me! I must be dreaming!!!




Thanks for stopping by my friends. 
Come see more of these new Safari inspired pieces in my shop early this afternoon.

Rainbows And Butterflies...


Hello jewelry lovers! Been enjoying a lot of time this past week on the new deck...and I got so excited that we got a big, huge Rainbow this week!! I was so inspired in all of the beauty around me this week that it shined in on this weekend's jewelry collection. Four new pair of earrings inspired by the colors in the sky and all of the little colorful wings flying and floating by. Here's a little preview of the new pieces coming to the Etsy shop later today and the gorgeous rainbow I was referring to...












Happy Summer everyone! See you back here again soon with designs inspired by the awesome element that is Nature!

Dog Days of Summer...


Happy Summer Solstice everyone! 
I've been working on the new home on the ridge a lot lately and enjoying at the same time the various weather systems that come through our front yard. The deck is quite amazing and I have been acknowledging my blessing for this very special place every second of every day that I have been here. 
God is so Good y'all!!!!




This was our first night from the deck in the new house...
and finally after a half a century...


I have a room with a view!!!

I also have been creating! I tell you...this mountain air is fabulous for the brain cells! Now I know why these hills and mountains are so full of creative artisans.
Here's a little look at the new pieces that will be available later today in my Etsy shop...
















Come on and join me early this evening for the collection drop over in my Etsy shop.
Hope you all are having a wonderful start to your summer and be sure to take some time for FUN!!!
