I Guess If You Can't Find It......Make It

Hello all! I have been wanting this watch from Anthropologie, and of is no longer available. Should have grabbed it when I had the chance, so it looks like I will try and make something similar, while at the same time still coveting the REAL THING! I am going to try and make it not know how far I will get with it being Halloween....a BIG thing in our house!! I will post pictures though and will await your comments on how it looks!! Take care!

Just Something I WANT to Make

Hello all! Look what I bought off of Etsy for $8. It is a broken leather purse. is! I am going to upcycle it! Into THIS! The blog Just Something I Made is absolutely one of my all time FAVORITE blogs!!! I truly think Cathe Holden is a genius! And, she shares her knowledge with the world through her blog.....ALWAYS a plus in my mind! Thank you Cathe!

I also think that I may be scouring Etsy for other scrap leather, if the pea pods work out, for different colors......maybe to match the other color pearls I have in my stash! In my kookie mind pea pods do not just have to be GREEN!

A little teaser for tomorrow's blog post............earrings.....maybe? For? FREE? Oh! Did I peak your interest? Check back!!

Verena Rose

Hello! Sorry for the Intermission, but I have a NASTY illness that put me in the hospital! Yuck! I thought I had caught the stomach virus that my daughter and husband had, but is worse. While I recover, I thought I might tell you about a new line of jewelry that Mad Maggie Designs is launching soon called the Verna Rose Collection. Simple sophistication meets antique-style findings in this new collection! Romantic, nostalgic jewelry designed by MMD! Keep an eye out for it and I will keep you posted and share some links soon!!! Take care!

The Best Thing In The World
Elizabeth Barrett Browning

WHAT'S the best thing in the world ?
June-rose, by May-dew impearled;
Sweet south-wind, that means no rain;
Truth, not cruel to a friend;
Pleasure, not in haste to end;
Beauty, not self-decked and curled
Till its pride is over-plain;
Light, that never makes you wink;
Memory, that gives no pain;
Love, when, so, you're loved again.
What's the best thing in the world ?
— Something out of it, I think.

Illness Delay

Looks like a stomach virus is running through the house. Madelyn missed her first day of Kindergarten last Friday, and as of this morning my husband has been in bed or in the bathroom. This tummy thing has cut my visit with my mom short, as she quickly packed her bags and left this morning. So, there will be a delay in my blogging until I can get everyone back to normal.....ha that word, NORMAL! Please send prayers and good thoughts my way as I DO NOT want to catch whatever this is! No throwing up for the lady with the Lapband....NOT a good thing! Hope you all had a great weekend!
In the mean time, all of you craft peeps out there, take a look at Lorelei's Blog Post! If you have a Michael's near by, RUN, don't walk and pick up the assorted goodies and let the creativity flow! I look forward to seeing what you all make! Take care! :)
