Show and Tell Monday....

Hi,, what a busy week end this has been. I am moving at the end of the month and I have way tooooo much stuff. Its all great stuff, but to much. I am making progress slowly but surely, but it does keep my from doing what I prefer, and thats being creative. The cats arent too happy either. I have packed and unpacked cats probably 100 times. I should just leave them packed. LOL

Well the first thing I have are pictures a very good friend gave me when she moved and didnt want them anymore. She didnt want to put them in her garage sale and give them away for next to nothing, she was glad I liked them. My understanding these are watercolors done in Paris in either the late 50's or early 60's. I didnt get the frames so you could see the beautiful art, but they are an antiqued turquoise/blue color and look gorgeous with the paintings. I truly cherish these and I am so glad she gave these to me. Next are two pairs of earrings I put together today. I really like the amethyst and mother of pearl ones. I listed them on my site, but I might keep them if they dont sell. Also I did this fun necklace.

I cant wait to see what you all are doing this week. I will be visiting you all through out the day. Have a magical day and happy creating.....until next time

Wow Gail! You had time to make those beauties too? I love the necklace! PS: Cats love hiding in boxes, as you just may pack one or two. You amaze me and I wish you all the best!

Gail that necklace is way toooooo cute! You made me laugh about keeping the cats packed. I can just see them giving you "the look."


Carol at Clutter Bug Studio said...

Gail, I really love the necklace way lots. I sure can relate to packing the cats - I'm sure they'll appear at dinner time to!

Sweet Necessi-Teas said...

Gail, I love that necklace. You are so creative! Hope you get everything packed soon and will have an easy move into that special place you want!

Theresa said...

I love the necklace. Kind of weaves a story. Did the pirate give her a key to his heart before he left her high and dry? Is he coming back? Is she doomed to spinsterhood. Wait, no, I see sails on the horizon. Okay, now see what you did with your lovely creation, you got me going...... It truly is a pretty piece of work.
