This And That

Hello my dear friends,

can you believe it is Friday already and  another week went by so quickly.Our friends left last Sunday and we had a wonderful time together.Now  I’m slowly catching up with you all.

Here is a soldered pendant I just finished.


I also did this heart pendant with resin.


Nothing much but a start to get back into a creating mood.

Now I would like to share a wonderful gift dear Jill from Feathers & Flight sent me a while back. I didn’t win her giveaway but she wanted to send me something anyway.How sweet and generous this is.


Isn’t the box to die for? Love the digital collage she made with the bird and nest.


Here is a peek inside.


Beautiful Ruban and the little bottles are filled with mop buttons and tiny rose beads. Jill and her friend Lemay are the Junkin Gypsies and I’m sure you all know them.They run an etsy store called Junkin Gypsies Boutique -  go and have a peek.


I will let the photos do the talking.


A beautiful journal.

This is what I found inside the journal!

It left me speechless.

Dear Jill, thank you so very much for spoiling me rotten.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend dear friends and as always thank you so much for your lovely comments.

Hugs and love,

As for your pendants I've said it before but I will continue to say it, these are of the standard of Sally Jean. It blows my mind how stunning your soldering is. The images you selected speak truly of you.
