Here is my DH, holding our friend's newly adopted baby, Keeley. She's from China! She is always smiling - at least always smiling at the pool. She is soooo sweet!!
Last weekend I decided at the last possible minute to go to the flea market, here in Raleigh. Pretty much everyone had closed up, but one lady that I always see & buy things from, she was still there. I found several vintage earring sets, just waiting to be re-purposed into something (not yet determined)... and this faded aqua rose pin. I worked on that piece last weekend & made it into a necklace.
Here are just more pieces of things I'm working on & flea market finds!
Below & above are vintage buttons, earrings, pins and lots & lots of vintage rhinestones! Oh, how I love it! I think I may have a problem with this - purchasing too much & not getting around to making it into something. But... I will say, I have been doing better at this....
Here are just MORE crystals ~ intersperced with other things I am working on... yummy!!
This is a gorgeous hydranga given to me by a friend... she surprised me & left it on my front porch. DH & I planted it last weekend. I am determined NOT to let this die on me! Last summer, in the drought, I lost 2 hydranga bushes, 2 azelea bushes and a gardenia bush. I am going to try really hard to keep it watered. Don't you just love this color!
