eye candy

no time for blogging.
turns out taking nearly 2 weeks off of work can leave a lot left undone.
funny how that happens ;)
so for now, i leave you with some eye candy from my trip.

ps – ummmm, thanks to kellie for reminding me that its wednesday!  i totally spaced and thought it was tuesday (still in vacation mode).  i will get a wiww post up tomorrow – better late than never!

petal drop necklaces

you know that little vacation my family and i took to my best friend’s house last week?
yeah, we’re still here.
we were completely packed up in the car,
kids pottied, ev.er.y.thing. ready to go.
then with tears welling up in my eyes,
i put in one last plea to stay longer.
ok, i actually asked if we could summer in bend and winter in slo,
but sean knew what i meant.
i had to put up a fight since nicole and i only see each other twice a year,
and it was going to be about 9 months until we’d see each other again.
too. long.
just when he was almost irritated with me puppy-dog-face-ing him,
he perked up, and said, “well…”
that may be my new favorite word!
he remembered he had to travel for work on tuesday, 
and that stop would be on the way home from here.
sooo, rather than driving home and him turning around the next day, 
we were able to stay 2 extra days!!!
we leave in a couple hours to head home, 
but first i had to show you some of what we’ve been working on this week.
nicole and i have been making petal drop necklaces off and on for this whole week.
i’m thinking i want to make all the crystals on my 
chandelier over my dining table into petal drops!
how amazing would that be?!

i wanted you to see how you can vary the length of the necklaces.
the chains are adjustable, so they can be worn long and low

or up a little higher on the neckline.

one of my favorite little details of each necklace is the little dangling bead at the back of the neck!

my shop has a handful of new necklaces in it (that’s my goal for mondays).
so swing by if you want one, and see if there’s anything else you’d like!
