New pretty things....

... a few things I found last week at Craft Mart.
A couple of years ago I had a booth there to sell my jewelry. I'm surprised I sold any of it... it was pretty sad. Some of it was cute, but when I look back at my first pieces.... sad, but you have to start somewhere. I never took a jewelry making class. I just looked at jewelry magazines to get the basics and went from there. That's why I love looking at blogs. I get such good ideas and inspiration from so many talented, creative women!

I spent $6.62 on ALL of this stuff .... BARGAIN!!

I'm planning to paint the crosses and maybe put some Swarovski crystals on them. I'll use them as candle *bling*. What do you call them? When you stick them into a candle? I'll just call them candle *bling*. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the cute little bird. It also has point on it. Any ideas?

Metal Cross Finial

A silly picture of me hiding behind crepe myrtle blooms. After our week long rain all my trees bloomed like cRaZy!

Bye y'all
