Christmas Gift

Christmas Gift

A co-worker wanted to give her mother a special Christmas gift and gave me this family photo to play around with. I hope she likes it as much as I do!
The photo is sandwiched between 2 pieces of 8X10 glass then soldered and bejeweled! It was a great project and my only boo-boo is in the photography.....that's my shadow in the glass taking the picture! Oh well, I have never claimed to be a professional photographer now did I ? The opposite side has "Christmas 2008 " in text from an old childrens book.
I think I'll be making more of these !!

Well it's that time of year! Time to clean , cook, bake, buy presents, wrap presents, decorate....well you get the picture! I'm embarassed to say that I am running behind this year and have only just begun my cleaning, cooking, shopping etc. The one thing I did find the time to do was take off every crystal on my chandelier, wash them, and re-design it! This little gem was a $5 treasure I found at a yard sale about 4 years ago and I painted it and cleaned it all up. It's gorgeous, but I love it even more now that I added some extra "bling" to it !
The other candle chandelier was a find for $10 and so I re-blinged it as well and when those candles are lit the crystals come alive and sparkle and shine! I just love it!
Tomorrow I think I'll work on the chandelier for my daughter, which is another yard sale find but with my own little surprise touches just for her. I'll take some snaps! Well I'd love to sit and chat, but apparently I have a lot of cleaning , cooking , baking, shopping, and wrapping to do!
Until next time, Stay Creative!

Remembrance Day

In Flander's Fields

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flander's fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, tho poppies grow
In Flander's fields.

Liet. -Col. John McCrae

A woman I work with at work had seen some of my jewelry and told me she had some pieces for me . The very next day she brought these wonderful pieces in for me and told me that they used to be her mothers and since she doesn't wear them or want to do anything with them she thought I'd like them!! I love them and cannot wait to start playing around with them.
Thanks Rachelle!
