Moving on to another color...Today I give you purple! My blues fading with the return of some sunshine today, I moved along the color spectrum on to violet for some more jewelry making. Two new pieces are now in my shop, this choker-style glass beaded necklace and this amethyst and Swarovski crystal bracelet with art glass charm (yes, real gemstone amethysts!--in faceted rondells, and super-sparkly purple crystals). I do like the bracelet...
Something I did not get to post about yet this week was an award given to me by the very lovely Margaret of The Earthly Paradise--the Excellent Award. Thank you so much, Margaret, this was a great surprise! Margaret's wonderful blog, if you have not visited her yet, has a special focus on the Arts & Crafts Movement, her aim being to bring back a sense of real beauty and simplicity to life and living. I learn something new all the time when I read her blog. And that it is filled with dazzling photos of works by the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood artists and more is a great bonus too--history and art, I love that! Do stop by and say hi to Margaret! Back to the award...I would very much like to share this award with three friends who aspire to excellence all the time and always inspire: Kat of Secrets of a Butterfly, Isobel of The Cosy Corner and Cielo of The House in the Roses--take your prizes, ladies!
Today I am not feeling so good, "womanly matters" if you know what I mean, feeling really low...So this evening and the weekend I plan to take it easy, rest, maybe try to figure out that crochet pattern yet, read...Gentle things, lovely things. And speaking of lovely things...Here are the roses Dear Husband gave me last week for Valentine's day, still blooming strong...Just like love!
Love to you all and a very happy weekend! I'll see you early next week! :o)
