I'm off to the Deepwood Holiday Show in Salem this weekend and my studio has been a flurry of activity - beads, wire, glitter and vintage papers flying everywhere. Everything needs to be packed up by tomorrow night. Better get these necklaces finished in a hurry!I call these the Maid Marian girls. Wait, that last one's not a girl, it's an egg! It's an Inspiration Egg!
More Inspiration Eggs!One of four lovely Tropical Butterfly earrings. I love how the image is bisected, one half on each earring.
Wish me luck! This show is 45 miles away from my home and I need to drive there and back again each day in rainy, stormy weather, so I'm a bit concerned about the commute but I think it will be a lot of fun!
While shopping this week for bits and bobs (and buttons!) to create holiday goodies, DH and I discovered the most marvelous Italian restaurant.Shopping is hard work, so we stopped to replenish our energy. I had a refreshing ice tea and this hearty Winter Squash and Wild Mushroom Pasta. YUM!! I couldn't remember the name of the restaurant when we got home, so thank goodness it's painted on their plates :)We also discussed the possibility of opening an etsy store for the holidays. What do you think about a potential banner: plain and classic or fancy and more baroque? (ignore that thin green border - blogger puts that around every photo)
Coming next week .. loads of fun and pretty at Natasha's Virtual Vintage Prom Party! Come put on a sparkly dress on Tuesday the 20th and join in the fun!
I just realized I am almost at my 100th post! only 5 more posts to go! .... ooooh, I need to start thinking of something really special!
