The holidays were just awesome for me because I was BUSY, BUSY! Busier than I ever dreamed of being with jewelry orders! It got to the point of craziness and I have needed some time to recoup and catch up on all the other things that needed to be done around here...like REST! lol!
I have to admit I was a little burned out once the holidays were over, but now I'm back to creating and looking forward to Spring. I've been working on some new designs and it seems that my jewelry is taking on a more bohemian/gypsyish look. It isn't what I intended...I was just creating what has been in my head. Seems like my true style shows through better when I am creating because I WANT to, not because I have orders to send out or because I need a certain number of pieces for a show. It's just more fun this way and it's what I enjoy.
I'm going to have to take some pics to show you what I'm talking about, but it has a very vintage feel...lots of aged brass, copper, old keys, vintage lace and linens, etc.
Hope everyone has a wonderful week! It's good to be back in blog-world!

Super cool retro-atomic starburst pattern dishes (Pontesa Ironstone from Spain) that belonged to my favorite great-aunt...I have 8 full place settings and several extra pieces! LOVE these, and I refuse to use them until my kids are grown and out of the house!
Cute starburst glasses that also belonged to my great aunt. I'm kinda sad that I only have 5. I'm sure at one time, there were at least 8.
And, last but definitely not least, my beloved Tupperware! The big round divided tray was given to me by my Granny...I can remember her using it to take lunch to my Papaw when he was out picking cotton. The cutie-pie little lunchbox, with sandwich/snack containers and cup, was a thrift store find and the largest piece, which has divided, sliding trays inside came from a little vintage/antiques store in town...I'm going to use it to store beads in I think!
I will be giving my readers a glimpse into my studio and my everyday (crazy) life. I would like to share my favorite things with you...whether it's a funny photo of one of my children, or some fabulous vintage home accessories I found online. Oh, and there will be jewelry...lots of jewelry!
I have several Fall/Holiday shows coming up, so there are lots of new goodies in the works!
Ok, now let me go and find something bloggable.....I'll be back soon!!!

I've made so much new stuff this week, and whatever doesn't sell at the market (I hope it ALL sells!) I will take pics of next week and start listing it in my shop.
I will be also have a booth at Main Street Market on the 27th. If any of you are in town one of those days, please stop by and say hello. There will be so many great vendors there and I'm sure you would enjoy walking around and looking at everything. We have some very talented people here in Clinton!
Well, back to my workbench I go! I'll give an update from the market with pictures next week. :)

I have to say I was a little shocked, because I'm still in a gift guide I was chosen for a while back, the Personalized Gift Guide, which is one of the "Hot Lists". My sterling anniversary necklace is in that one.
I can't really say whether being in the Gift Guides has brought me more sales or not, but nevertheless, it is nice to be recognized. The Gift Guide items are chosen by the Etsy staff. Boy, someone on the Etsy staff must really like me! lol!

One of my hand stamped sterling silver guitar picks made the front page of Etsy this afternoon...then it sold almost immediately! Plus another one right after that!
That made my day! Who says Friday the 13th is bad luck?!
Because I totally missed it...thanks to my friend, Lori, aka: cozycabinmom, for letting me know!!!
