Addiction #20: Lace

This necklace is by LiveInStyle. Purrrrrr.
It reminds me of a burgundy lace dress I recently

This Queen Ann's Lace Cuff is beautiful.
Hand embroidered by Waterrose.

I scored some lace curtains at an antique store.
They added just the right amount of pretty.
It's a girl thing;)
The curtains pictured are by
Cottage Home Couture.

I just realized that this addiction
is related to Addiction #2.

Turquoise Chandelier

My skeleton in all it's glory (thanks to Rerun $22).
Yed says it's pee yellow.

Ahhhhhh... the jewels...quartz, turquoise,
howlite and glass (my own hording).
This awesome paint color is called
Jaded Janet (Fred Meyer $9).

Feels like I'm making a Statue of Liberty Earring.

Priceless! I've been dreaming of this lady.
Finally she keeps me company in the studio.

Color Burst

This sweet gal had me swooning over the colors
on her shawl!
It reminds me of Frida Kahlo.

The tiniest punch of yellow goes a long way.

This felted coin purse I scored at Unfurl in
Manzanita, OR.
I use it as a clutch.

Carnelian and turquoise together are eye candy.

Big Day!

My little helper is at his first day at Kindergarten! Time flies! These photos above, my sweet monkey was almost 3 (he liked to work with pearls).

Enjoy your weekend!

Pink T

I pretended to take a picture of the flowers, but secretly I wanted to get a shot of Yed in his pink T (that I love). A guy that rocks a pink T is awesome;)
