I'm finally getting the hang of it!!!


So you ask "What are you talking about??"
I'm talking about wire wrapping my beautiful antique buttons!
But first, look at how wonderful our sedum succulents are doing in the birdbath!!!

They love this Georgia heat and get afternoon storms every now and then.
I love that they grow over the sides and drape down!




In other news...I'm almost to my real, really real, salt and pepper hair color!!!
I have it cut super short for this hot, humid summer but thought I'd share with you.
I miss my dark hair but oh well, I was so sick and tired of coloring it.





This is what I think I'm finally getting the hang of!!!
Wire wrapping and jewelry making. Practice makes perfect they say
and it is SO very true.
I'm not perfect yet but have finished a few pretty pieces and am pleased.
I wanted to share them with you
and a few other pretty things that I've listed in my Etsy store!
Also, shipping is all free in the US!

Here is the link if you'd like to take a look: MY ETSY STORE











These are sweet lavender sachets! Perfect for favors at a baby or wedding shower!!!



A beautiful plate for hanging that I've had for years!




And this is a gathering of vintage Christmas stockings!!!



All have been listed in my Etsy shop!!!


I'm trying so hard to be more creative now that we've settled into our new home.
Once I step into our wonderful studio...
the atmosphere inspires me so much!!!


Thank you always for stopping by to see what I'm up to!

Hugs and love,
Dawn

Oh my goodness! The lace angel visited me today!!!!!



Long time no post!

But, y'all....
This is truly post worthy!!!!

I met a sweet friend through Etsy that purchased
several of my tutorials.

One of which was the Candy Cup tutorial.
She was looking for lace similar to what I had used
in my photo in the tutorial.

I mentioned that it was wedding lace.
I told Madaline that maybe
if she went to JoAnn fabrics and
visited the wedding section and trims,
she could find something beautiful.

WELL....apparently this dear girl bought some for her....and some for me!!!!
Goodness gracious!!!
She told me she wanted to send me a few
snippets of lace so I could use them in my creations as well.
These are more than snippets!

I'm so, so, so very thankful sweet Madaline!
You truly are my lace angel ~
thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Now....what shall I make?





















I'd better get myself busy creating, right???

First,
I will enjoy this wonderful gorgeousness!!!


Thank you always for stopping by sweet friends,

hugs and love,
Dawn

Life is full of sweet surprises!!!


Well, one wonderful surprise is this sweet little sparrow nest that the mama
built inside of the wreath on our front door!
I'm still taking photos as times passes....I can't wait to see the babies!




This is the next WONDERFUL SURPRISE!!!
I received a precious gift from one of my blog friends,
a true soul sister as she has been featured in Somerset Life
in the past, as have I.
Just look at what this sweet Melissa has gifted me!

















So many BEAUTIFUL elements to create with!!!
You inspire me so much dear Melissa and I appreciate
each and every gift from you!!!!
Here's to us both creating and using our true talents!
Thank you so, so very much.
I've been in a funk for too many years but
you've truly inspired me!!!


Hugs and love precious friends,
Always,

Spring anyone?


We have been pretty busy around here!!!
Now that Easter has passed and it really IS officially spring,
Tammy and I have been planting so many
wonderful things!
Herbs, ferns, flowers and succulents.

Yesterday the deck was freshened up by new outdoor carpet
until we can get the floor replaced.
What a difference it has made!
New cushions on the chairs make it even better.

You have to plant and pot things here in Georgia
while temperatures are mild because
in about a month it will be pretty hot and steamy!

I just wanted to share a few photos of our beautiful deck!




Dill and basil ~





A beautiful arrangement of potted flowers Tammy put together!





Mint and more flowers.



I love ferns so we have them sprinkled all over.



Rosemary, parsley, oregano and thyme.




Asparagus ferns mixed with sedum. Flower plantings and a fox tail fern!




Chives!




Another gorgeous flower arrangement potted by sweet Tammy.
She does have the touch having been in the floral business for 40 years or so!




A small bed that we planted foxgloves and other flowers.
The plant in front of St. Francis is catnip!









I've hung a handmade wreath on our front screened door,
complete with fake greenery and fake bird's nest.
WELL a little sparrow thought it looked like home
and built her nest right beside the fake one!
We have five little eggs too!!!





Well, I hope you enjoyed my little tour around the deck
and that spring has arrived for you as well!

We had better enjoy it this next month before the temps rise!

Thank you so much for stopping by to see what I'm up too,
Hugs and love,
Dawn
