A light breeze guides your way. Country rose features dusty blue metal roses that drapes from multiple strands of delicate brass chains.
Baby blue and green roses with glass bead wire wrapped in silver toned wire. I wanted an innocent but updated classic look. This one was a bit fussy
This 36″ brass and bronze wirewrapped necklace was for myself. It has red rose beads, glass pearls , jet and fern green Swarovski Element Crystals, bronze leaves and dragonfly wings. I pieced bronze chain to space out the beads. I added a brass bow to the closure to finish it off. This necklace paired perfectly with my cream and white striped dress that is now my favorite.
I love roses, I always wanted a red rose ring, but never came across one, when I got into ring making that was the first thing that came to mind. These are the a few that I wear most often, and they are incredibly comfortable. These rings have become very popular with my loved ones, and I finally have my red rose ring I always wanted.
My mom told me the other day that there was a nest just outside my sisters window, When I visited for my sisters birthday I was so excited to see this, I took this photo still inside the house through the front window. its hard to tell but there are 5 of them. I really thought that the nest was beautiful there are still dried flowers attached to the stalks that are weaved in.
A few weeks earlier I had went to my sisters rose bush to clean it up a bit after all the blooms died and I found this little guy just staring at me,he wasn’t scared so I took this quick photo
He seems to live at the very bottom of the bus,h in the center of where the canes branch out, He will climb to the top of the rose bush look around then snuggle back into his thorny lair.
I started making myself this small purse, and while its unfinished, I wanted to share this with you. I have been considering making a pearl beaded handle, but have yet to commit to it. The red roses are actually two pockets and edged in this beautiful antique cream lace that I have been referring to as buttermilk. I received the lace as a gift and was found in a small shop in Wisconsin along with 10 yards of forest green lace that you will be seeing a lot of soon. The lining is a tiny white dot on a red background. I did a top stitching in an apple green thread. My favorite is the little red rose decorative button, its the cherry on top.
This bag is very similar to the first project I ever tried to sew on a machine, I completely butchered it; I wanted to quit but my husband encouraged me to finish no matter what it looked like, so I could see how far I had come once I was better at sewing. I cried during most of it with him at my side. He was so right when I came across that first bag recently I was amazed. that’s when I decided to make a new one, I altered it greatly cause the other was too small, and pockets that were mostly decorative. I’m very happy with this new one.
I highly suggest if you have had a project that almost defeated you ( or did ) to take it out, and look at how far your skills have come, and possibly try it again, at the very worst you can learn from it
Every Valentines day week end my fiance takes me to a local orchid show, while I love all these beautiful exotic blooms, it is the amazing scent of orchids that pours out of the entrance that I remember the most.
