Boy did we have rain yesterday! Wind, rain, flooding and another long drive to and from the airport in the middle of it all. Today will be a tad gloomy and rainy and then tomorrow…sun and at least 70 degrees! Thank goodness. My dear pal Elyse has been coping with flooding in her basement. I saw on the weather channel that the area she lives in had a record amount of rainfall. Speaking of Elyse, I have been meaning to post about this article in Romantic Homes:
I am continually amazed by the talents of my fellow bloggers. One such blogger, Jodie of Everything Vintage, recently did a post about some jewelry she created. I fell in love with one of the necklaces and zipped right on over to her Etsy shop to order it.
It arrived the other day. It was so beautifully presented:
I saw the button card first – isn’t it lovely? And I love, love vintage buttons. Next was the necklace, wrapped in a hankie embroidered with a ‘C’, tied up with a beautiful ribbon and a pendant. What a beautiful way to present the necklace!
I used to be the kind of person who threw some wrapping paper on something and impatiently taped it together. Blogging has changed that. I am much more aware of creative presentation now. Oh, and I am getting the jewelry making bug. I haven’t really tried anything yet, but I think it would be so satisfying to gather up vintage elements and create some jewelry.
Square #31 – remember this photo?
Have a great day.
