happy sunday & getting ready for a celebration!

Happy Sunday Sweet Hearts!!!
Just a brief post before I run off to the Orange Show Swap Meet at the bottom of our mountain in San Bernardino, in search of sweet treasure & time worn trash... my favorites!

As you can see...I've been having soooooo much fun playing with my new camera!

This is the beautiful wall candle holder in our bedroom next to my side of the bed, where I hang my newly created jewelry & my Grandmother's rosary.

My side table with some of my favorite little things on it. An awesome stained glass lamp given to me as a gift from my bestest friend, a photo I took recently of the front of my shop, a magazine holder with an assortment of adored Stampington Publications,

some vintage silver & the small glass holder that I keep my most beloved jewels in at the end of each the day

A newly found treasure, a rusty tin ceiling tile that is on hubby's side of the bed. {I feel a kinda sorry for him cuz he's not use to it & every night as he's getting ready for bed, he hits it with his arm & let's out a tiny curse...but thus are the sacrifice's made in the name of 'junk'!

So, can you guess what next amazing, unbelievable, monumental, can't believe it, I'm so darn excited, celebration I'll be having soon? 300th friend, follower, sweet hearts, gala, extravaganza, celebration!!
This will be my biggest & bestest Give-Away ever!!!
Yes, I know that it is only my 2nd giveaway, but it will be bigger & better then the 1st! lol
& I know it will involve handmade & hand wired jewels. ;)

Five more friends & we're there...another yippppeee from me!
I can't wait & my mind is feverishly conjuring up what all we might do for this very special event so keep checking back as it should be happening pretty soon!

And so I must end with another thank you sweet friends.
Thank you for following me through all of life's amazing & sometimes dull adventures.
Thank you for being my greatest cheerleaders & constant supporters as I'm finding my way.
Thank you for all of your comments & words of wisdom as I've journeyed down this incredible path.
Thank you for teaching me that hearts can shine so brightly, even from far off places.
Thank you for helping me find this amazing community of teachers, artists, jewelers, writers, photographers, junkers, frenchies, shop keepers, swappers, travelers & kindred spirits.
You have become family to me & simply put,
I can't imagine my life without you friends.
You all must know, how very much I HEART you!!!

Wow, 300!! Good for you, you so deserve it. I am falling in love with old rusty & chippy things as of lately. I find comfort in knowing they were displayed or loved by many for years before me. I love your lamp too!! My hubs has an uncle who in his day, installed stained glass windows and such into churches. beautiful work. Hugs. Tazzy
