Old Earrings Made New

You might be surprised to find out that I am still creating... I have been so busy with work lately that I have little time for anything else. This weekend I did make the time to convert a pair of clip on earrings. I found these beauties at an estate sale for $3. Some wire, beads, 14 karat hooks and voilĂ , new earrings.

OWOH Winnings and New Friends

I enjoy participating in the OWOH event each year. I have meet some of the most interesting, generous and kindhearted people but this year had to top them all.

I was the lucky winner of not one but two heart necklaces. Holly's Folly made this lovely glass heart pendant. The photo cannot do it justice as it is far lovelier in person.

This winged heart pendant is from Ametista LLC. I can hardly wait to wear this with my Steampunk outfit that I am wearing to Abeny Park in April.

Due to a slight mishap I was introduced to someone I may not have meet any other way. Waxela from Spirit Mama sent me this package of goodies as a thank you. Look at these clever fabric coved buttons and this handcrafted goddess.

Winning beautifully handcrafted items is always fun, but more importantly OWOH has introduced me to some wonderful people who have replenished my faith in human kindness, and for that I am truly grateful.
