Miscellaneous

Just some photos of some miscellaneous things I've been working on. Most were for Valentine's Day including these nut cups I filled with Hershey Kisses and gave to friends.


A little heart box I made for myself. I love this rose wallpaper scrap that had been sitting around waiting for me to use it on something.


I had this heart pendant - I love the pastel flowers that adorn the heart. I made this necklace kind of quickly one night - I'm not quite sure I'm satisfied with it. I may still rework it a bit.


A friend asked if I could make a bracelet for a friend of hers. My only specifications were to "make it look old." Come to find out - the recipient has the matching earrings and necklace for the vintage leaf I used. They belonged to her mother - it must have been Divine intervention guiding my hand!


The always delightful and kind Mary at Oh Merci sent me this adorable heart as a surprise. I love it! Thank you Mary!

Miss Glitter Fairy Laurie tagged me a while back for a book meme. The instructions are to find the nearest book, go to page 123, find the first five sentences and post the next three sentences. The book nearest to me is In An Instant by Lee & Bob Woodruff. The sentences I am to type are a bit graphic so I'm changing this up and posting from the bottom of page 123 instead of the top. "Our apartment in San Francisco had one of the most magnificent and romantic views I had ever seen. Perched under the Coit Tower in North Beach, its floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors and deck displayed the scene from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Bay Bridge. Early in the morning when fog coated the bay, the foghorns sounded far out into the water and reverberated off the Marin hills."

Ah, California dreamin on such a winter's day (we have snow in our forecast)!

Be well friends.

I just love your leaf bracelet. It is very mysterious how it's recipient had matching earring! I don't believe in luck, but what interest would the Divine have with a bracelet? Hmmm! It IS said that God works in mysterious ways. :D

Love those nutcups and the cute valentine box. Your jewellery is beautiful, I don't think the necklace needs reworking at all!
What a fluke about the leaf on the bracelet!

Beth Leintz said...

I want to go to San Francisco now! Love the jewelry you're making- I love old jewelry and its so much fun to see it recreated- and what a coincidence about the bracelet and earrings- divinely weird!

Sadie Lou said...

Sorry for the confusion. In all honesty, I told someone to leave that group and Lynn, the gal that started the NING group, didn't appreciated that since she opened the door for anyone--not just our street team--I thought it was just for our street team. So, I left.
Sorry for the drama!!

The roses on the heart box are pretty. Your jewelry is always pretty! I wore my pink earrings (you made) last night when we went out for dinner, and thought of you as I put them on!

What a gorgeous bracelet (yup! I'd say there was some intervention there)! And I LOVE your springy pastel necklace!

Love it all! I want to try making the little nut cups. I think they would be cute in the kiddos' Easter baskets.
