I'm still being inspired by vintage charm bracelets with hearts,
and I have found a few on Etsy.

Good Eye on Etsy
(this one is sold, but I just love it!)

Beverly's Charm bracelet from Modern Poetry

and this one from A Purple Palm

Vintage Inspiration Friday #72 Antique Heart Charms

I have to tell you the truth, this has been a busy week.
 With announcing my opening Common Ground 
My little pea brain has been in a whirlwind...

So when I saw this feature in the February issue of
Martha Stewart Living
I knew I had to share it with you.

I totally fell in love with these images of vintage jewelry hearts (in a heart)

"Charmed, I'm sure..."

When I was young we all had a charm bracelet that told our stories.
Oh how I'd love to find a stash of these now!
Bring back memories?
So let's see what was happening last week...

Holly at Down to Earth Style has redone her mantle for winter
with a nature inspired theme. Love the window screen and sign.

Barbara Jean from Treasures from the Heart has found the sweetest spot
for a little nest...her coin purse!

If you want to have your socks knocked off then
be sure and check out the house reno at Classic Casual Home

Dana over at Circa Dee found a new toy this Christmas
check out using it to make some great vintage look signs.

 Linda from It All Started with Paint shows off some of her 
mad crafting and painting skills in her wonderful Entry.

AND,You all know how much I love me some sheep,
well, go check out the funny story about painting these adorable guys
over at Pumpkin Pie Painter, really a cute post!

New Year and some new things happening here. I switched to the format of requiring a "link back" to my blog in your VIF party posts. I know it takes a few minutes to do this, but I join lots of parties too, so I have to do it as well. Besides, it's only right that if we link to a party that we give the hostess a nod for joining in. So please be sure there is a link back in your post, otherwise you won't be able to link up. (insert smiley and happy face)

Love you guys bunches, thanks so much for partying over here. I may not get to leave  a comment on every blog, but I do try to drop by. Thanks for making Vintage Inspiration such a success!

And remember, you have until Saturday Night January 14

Valentine's Day is just around the corner...

I know we just got our Christmas things packed and back in storage,
but it will be Valentine's Day before we know it.

And just to get us in the mood for a little Romance
I wanted to give you a peek at what I've been working on.

These are just a few of the pendant necklaces

or for yourself, hope you'll drop by.
I'm listing new ones HERE each day.

Dear Santa...

I found these adorable little picture charms the other day and just added them to my Etsy Shop. They are so cute to layer with other necklaces for some fun this time of year. Drop by the Petite Boutique to see what else is there. And as soon as I'm finished decorating the house there will be some new pendant necklaces, too.
 Update! Thanks everyone for your purchases of these Christmas Charms, I'll be listing a few more today. Check back at my Etsy Shop for the listings.

Hope you've been good this year!

Don't forget all the fun parties coming up next week.
Grab the party button on my sidebar,
so you won't miss the fun!

What's New in the Shop

These cooler days of Fall have me more productive in the studio,
so I thought I'd share what I've been adding to my Etsy Shop.
Some brass and zinc numbered tags are now hanging out 
with my blinged keys.

I put together a little impromptu styling vignette
 with an old celluloid covered jewelry box,
a frame of dried flowers and a small gold portrait frame.

One of my few hydrangeas of the year
 that has the most amazing lavender color.

and a fragile old book entitled Religious Experience in Twelve Letters
 dated 1826.

Vintage ladies watchfaces added to the key
and a new watch as part of the pendant.

The pendants are hanging from a 28 inch silver plate ball chain,
so there's no tarnishing.

Several of these have already been sold.
If you'd like something that's shown, just email me and
I'll try to put something together just for you.
Please be sure and label it "Jewelry" on the email.

It's never too soon to start thinking Christmas!

(this post is showing up in my most visited feed,
I'm no making jewelry at this time, 
nor is my Etsy store open at this time.
thanks so much, Debra)
