Gales of November

 That's where the title to this post came from.
It's grey and gloomy outside.
But it is November.
Almost Thanksgiving.
And that means...
Almost CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!

That's right.
I've been working on Christmas!


Holly Jolly.

Have yourself a merry little...

What is this you ask?
Well, dear readers, I'll tell you.
It's a bribe.
I said it.

If you spend $20.00 or more in my Etsy Shop
I'm going to add a free pair of earrings.
While supplies last.
These are unsold earrings from my Etsy shop.
This is a 
clean out my earring closet freebie.
Some of these earrings are from another season.

Some are "seconds" but really perfectly fine.

You may specify which pair you'd like to have.
If they are still available they are yours with your order.
Or..we can leave it as a surprise.
A fun surprise.
Not a nasty surprise,


And we all know
Like it or not

May as well accept it.
Cold feet.
Blowing snow.
Cold cars.
Snow shovels.

I guess it's kind of pretty.
At least  around Christmas.

Thank Fall

Thanksgiving is right around the corner.
I've been very busy with the Etsy shop.
I am very thankful for that.
I've met some of the most amazing people.
I haven't really met them.
You  know.
Not in person.

I've met them through the various kinds of jewelry that I've made.
I make cheap jewelry.
Nothing expensive.
No Gold.
No. Platinum
Just Fun.
Cheap Jewelry For Classy Broads.
That was going to be my tagline.
My daughter gave me "that" look.
So I don't call it that.
Not out loud anyway.

Repurposed vintage.
I called these
Iron Butterfly.

I've found people like to wear their hearts
 or at least
their words on their ears.

My favorite the White Rabbit is still popular.

He's also in Steampunk.
I love Steampunk.  It's so much fun to build a necklace.

Heaven knows I have waaay too many little
bits and bobs of things.

Vintage Christmas items.
It's that time of year.
I know this because it's crammed down my throat with the
force of ten
Steven Spielberg

But, really, it's still Fall.

And almost time to
Give Thanks.


Eat Turkey.

Because in a few short weeks -

Santa Claus Necklace -  BELIEVE - Soldered Vintage Santa With Festive Red Beads

He's coming.
And all the madness that ensues with Christmas.
Is on it's way.

Enjoy the quiet while you can!
