"Martha" is a bit too anal for my way of thinking, but I've gotta at least give her credit for "Autumnal." It's a $2 Dollar word, with inflation, and all that...........So, I digress. I made "Autumnal" Necklaces.You can use that word,,,,it really IS free. (Shell, for heaven's sake, stay on task for a change!) SO?
I had two fall toned necklaces commissioned, and thought I'd make a third,,,,,,so they have a choice.
I had fun using different textures AND some awesome Vintage Velvet ribbons that I bought at Farm Chicks a while back in a soft orange and celadon green......How can you NOT love Vintage Velvet ribbons?
Added some Velvet green leaves to this one,,,,,,,It all appears a BIT brighter here than it actually is...
Last one,,,,,again, my color rendition is a bit off......Lovin' the rich Velvets and Satins!
We've had quite a streak of Warm--HOT? weather at least for us,,,,,,but the morning's have been cool and I generally hear the "whooshing" sounds of Hot Air Ballooons about the time I've finished my first cup of coffee. Their flight path generally falls right over my roofline,,,,,,they are LOW and I can see the riders Shadows, if not their faces! I'm sure they're thinking, "Lady, we see you down there your PJ's!"
They move pretty fast, by the time I grabbed my camera, they were over the roof of my little Cottage in back!
(If you look carefully in the lefthand corner, you'll see a Glimpse of my Hop Vines!~ Almost ready for the pickin' and dryin'! They are something this year! I take a better photo before I start cutting them down.)
Happy Monday, I hope your new week started out well, I can't wait to check out what's going on with at least SOME of you! I don't know about all of you, but my NEXT project is to learn how to Juggle....See if you get a Visual on THIS:
Work at a Real Job, Part-time, Maintain Two homes, a "cranky" old detatched garage, which include all the gardens- HA!, and repairs on "historical homes" aka older than dirt and always needing something, do ALL your Crafty stuff (orders, requests/billing), prep for 3 or 4 shows a year ( and if you DO them, you KNOW how much work that is!) tend to the needs of FOUR animals-daily, if not sometimes HOURLY, and Oh yeah! Keep up with friends in ALL facets of your life, tend to the needs of a 91 years old (daily and weekly), and Maybe touch base with a family member or two every now and then.
I'm blessed. I'm never lonely. I have local friends and members of the community, and then,,,,,"Oh my Stars!" I have Blog friends both near AND far.....some whom I've met, and some that I just FEEL like I've met, or know.
Yes, I live alone-well, other than the fur babies, and have to do "it all." And yes, as you may have guessed by the last paragraph, at times it gets overwhelming. Like right now. I feel like I'm over my head. But this too shall pass!I'm sure we ALL feel like this at times!
Hugs and Love,,,,,,,,and a "Harvesting" Bus on the Cheek!
