Princess Maddie

She's all set for Halloween! Our little girls is 5 months old this week! Can you believe it? Where has the time gone? I've never had a little girl doggie, so of course she is our little princess. Finally, I get to dress up a girl for Halloween! Chester got to be a devil every year, because the costume was so funny. But and princess!

I got her to hold still long enough for a shot by giving her a chewy bone! Lovely in the picture, but this is the only one that isn't blurry. You know what I mean! Forget the tiara!

Thank you to everyone who left a comment about my "bling" necklaces. The verdict is these should sell. I really appreciate each of you leaving me some feedback, because I really wanted to know what you think of this collection.

Here are a couple more I've finished. They are just so much fun to work on. I am feeling the pull back to do some etching and soldering, but for now, found objects, deeply hidden away, are getting new life.

The brass piece below is from France. Bought it at an antique show. Love it.

And the medal on this one is from a wonderful military shop in Victoria, Canada, that my friend Diana Frey recommended, and my friend Jill Rockwell took me to when I was visiting. Thanks girlfriends!

Thanks for looking guys. I'll post more as they get done!
Bling anyone?

Oh Riki, Mattie is such a sweetie. She's found her special place in life. I can tell. She's going to be a sweet little girl for you and your husband. Enjoy her so much. You deserve this little dog.
The necklaces just get prettier and prettier. '
Here's to the bling....

Oh I LOVE those! I so wish my customers would groove on metals other than silver because I LOVE brass and copper. Sigh.

Your Maddie is tooooo cute! I would love to see a picture of Maddie with a tiara if she could sit still long enough!

Your necklaces are stunning and should be published~ the first necklace is my favorite.
