Silver Sunday: Easter Bunnies, Birds and Baskets

With Spring and then Easter
just around the corner,
I wanted to put together an Easter Basket for you...
Full of Silver Spring goodness and fun.

Bunny with German glass glitter.

Rhinestone photo frame with
a vintage Easter graphic.

all in a silver woven basket.

And this is my favorite soldered charm necklace
with a little blue bird.

Sending loving Easter Wishes your way...

Hope you enjoy a beautiful Day!

Thank you Beth,

I'm Soooo Ready!

I wanted to show you a little something
 that I put together today to take to my soon to be
 new and expanded booth space at

Spring Creek Antiques.

I'm "holding my breath" to get in there...

having "ants in my pants"...

and driving everyone else crazy!

I like to "play" with jewelry pieces.
I'm not a "professional jewelry person"
like so many of you fabulous gals out there,

I just like to have a little fun
with some odds and ends.

(just so you won't worry about me,
these are 3 separate pieces)

so don't look too close...

And then, I won't show you

 the stacks of plastic tubs...

and boxes...
in the garage and hallway...

waiting to be taken...

or my dirty kitchen floor...

or the baskets of laundry...

or my unmade bed...

Trust me,

this feels like having a baby...

I just want it done!!!

But I WILL tell you about Inspirational Home's

Spring Open House
next weekend March 19-21.

More info and photos of what's "In Store"
coming next week.

Check out my friend Debra's wonderful store
Inspirational Home, in Springfield, Missouri
if you have a minute.

(yes, her name is Debra, too)

OK, keep a good thought for me this weekend...
I have no more fingernails!

hugs and love,
