A Ridiculously Wonderful Day

It was a beautiful day,
the sun beat down
... we were driving.
It was a great day for shopping
Barn sale, antiques, garage sale, and a ladies lunch.
I didn't take any pictures, though.
Except for this wreath.
We loved it!
We want to make one like it!
I bought this candle.
Actually, I think we all bought this candle.
I love anything with a clock on it, you know.
This is the top.
Isn't this great?!
It's scented vanilla and smells like heaven!
My husband bought me this for my birthday.
It used to hold microscope slides.
I just love it.
He has great taste.
He knows JUST what I LOVE!
The problem is...
He didn't know he bought it for me
until I showed it to him,
and kissed him,
and told him, "Thank you I just adore it!"
He's funny like that.
Now for the arts and crafts portion of this post.
I made more of these flowers.
Unfortunately, I was using
a scented candle to melt the edges of the fabric.
Scented candle + noxious fabric fumes = Not a good idea.
No wonder I kept using my asthma inhaler.
Ventilation or an unscented candle
would have been 
a better idea.
I tinkered with this photo in Photoshop.
Again, trying to be arty.
Working on more necklaces.
Backside of the bluebird necklace.
Broken china plate and a necklace for a blogger friend.
More busted plate jewelry.

Time spent with friends 
is a wonderful day!
