Aahhhh, beautiful fall

This is a picture of the tree in our back yard.  I love it. It really makes me aware of the passage of time and gets me pondering on life and the cycles that we go through. Lovely tree, beautiful life.


Joe and I worked on the yard and cleaned up the leaves but the rest are still waiting to take their flight to the ground. I’m sure if I take an “after” picture more leaves will have made their trip down.

What a week-end!

I took all day yesterday to recover from a most wonderful week-end. Now I’m refreshed and back to myself.

The craft show, Trims and Whims, went so well! I don’t have much jewelry left. This is a good thing. I’ll be busy making new things now.

The weather was in the 70’s and I got to set up outside for both days.  I love fall weather but this was more like spring. Anyway, Saturday was the big “Light up Shelbyville” event. They close off Main Street and have entertainment, food venders and craft venders all leading up to the Christmas tree lighting. It’s all so festive and lovely. So, after a full day at Trims and Whims I packed up my wares and did a trunk show at The Keepsake Shop in town.  Then took everything  back to Trims and Whims on Sunday for another great sale day. By Sunday night you’d better believe I was totally wiped out but smiling. Here’s part of my booth.

Most of the pieces in this photo have sold. I’m thrilled that people respond to and like my jewelry.  Here are new earrings that I’ve made. They’re fused Argentium leaves and Swarovski Crystal pearls. Very delicate and easy to wear. The necklace is copper with a Ruby Quartz drop.



That’s about it for now. I’ll post more pictures soon as I get them.

It's been awhile

I've realized that it's been quite awhile since I last posted anything. It isn't that I've been sitting here doing nothing, I just haven't written anything.

Anyhow, I've got a busy week-end coming up. Saturday and Sunday I'm doing one of my favorite craft shows--Trims and Whims. It's here in Shelbyville and it's always a good one. After Saturdays show closes I'm off to another event in Shelbyville. It's the Christmas tree lighting. Always a fun time but this year I'll be participating as a vender. I'll be showing my jewelry at the Keepsake Shop in town.

A busy week-end--more after all the festivities.
