Vintage Jeweled Cuffs

Collecting vintage jewels and turning them into something more current, more fabulous has been my passion lately. First I ripped apart the old jewelry. Taking each piece apart by removing the earring clip, pin, etc. Sometimes things that look like complete junk look great group together.  Then I glue ( with E6000) the bits and pieces together, making sure to cover the whole base. 
I will be selling these and many other pieces in my space down at The Mercantile Mall.
I hope to see you there.

I hope everyone has a great Labor Day weekend! Stay safe!

Hilton Head

I can't believe that I didn't do one blog post all summer. This was the fastest summer of my life. The kids start back to school on Tuesday so hopefully I will be able to get back to blogging, crafting, junking, etc.
Here are a few pictures from our vacation to Hilton Head. 

 My niece flew in from California to join us on vacation.

Strike a pose!

I love this photo. The girls found a starfish.

We always try to incorporate college visits into our trips.

The was the University of South Carolina

Hope to blog again soon!

Red, White and Blue!

With Memorial Day this weekend and Independence Day just around the corner, I thought we could use a little red, white, and blue decorating inspiration.
Here are a few of my favorite photos.

Dresser Redo

Ahhh... a brand new sander! My sander broke 6 or 7 months ago
 and things were really starting to pile up. 

My new sander made it super easy to finish this dresser. Since I was using 
spray paint, it only needed a light sanding.

 The top already had this design so I sanded most of it 
off and then I just went over it, free-hand with fresh acrylic paints. 
Then I finished it off with a little floor wax for protection.
