Cuffs, Birdbaths And Other Things

I have been absent from blogging for a while with all the hustle and bustle of November and December.   Did you all have a wonderful Christmas and New Year?  Are you all ready to start fresh and did you make reasonable promises to yourself?   Like everyone else, I wonder where 2012 went!

With the tree packed away for another year...sadly as I love my little tree.  I have mentioned before that we downsized in a very big way when we moved from our beloved Arizona to Michigan, so my tree is a 6' slimline.  Hubby spray painted it white, but not all white letting some of the green show through.  It was a very pretty pastel tree and pleased me greatly!  I had lots of glittery ribbon running back and forth and tucked back in among the branches and lots of ornaments that glittered, shimmered and was so satisfying!

And look what my talented partner, at the local antique store, made me for Christmas!  I will show you more details in a later post.  Isn't this a beautiful bird bath?  It will have a very special place in a revamped garden this spring ~

So, with the house put back together and clean and sparkly, I was ready to go back to work and here is what I have been doing....
I love the pretty cuff~bracelets and have been having fun making some.  They add so much to an outfit and I especially love them with the BoHo or Gypsy look!
This one would be perfect with a denim jacket, sweater and boots .....
And this one with so many different can see more details of these if you visit

Lots more pretty things to come from Marian and me, so don't be shy about visiting us!
