Hearts for Theme Thursday


I made this necklace with some of my vintage button collection. If you click on the image you will be able to see better the little round buttons, the rhinestone buttons, and at the bottom, I put a black glass button in a cabochon to make the charm. I stamped the word LOVE on paper and put it under glass in another cabochon. It fits this weeks Theme Thursday of "Hearts". I love making jewelry and as soon as my art room is all set up I will be making more.

Today I am putting the last bits of supplies away in my room. My linen bins arrived and it was amazing how fast they filled up! Didn't I throw enough away??? I have a few more bins coming in the medium size and that will help with finishing up the job of organizing.

I am planning to make some curtains and a chair cover, and I am scouting out a chandelier to shabby up for the room. It has been a lot of work, but I feel so renewed by doing it.

This morning as I was filling up little vintage glass dessert cups with colorful beads I was feeling very grateful for my life, for my room and for all the creative ideas that rush into my mind. The sun was streaming through the window, and I felt such a sense of wellbeing! I know I am in my right place.

Thanks you for coming by!
