A jewelry designers jewelry collection...

   I've been making my own jewelry since I was about 11. I've been exposed to jewelry since I was a small, small child hanging out with my Grandmothers. From vintage jewelry with one Grandma to the other Grandma designing jewelry for her gift shop. I think I could say I was destined to be running my business designing jewelry.

Just to name a few of the designers; Holly Ertel, Kate Baer Fossils, Florine Thomason, Sophie Hollenberg, Reese Truesdale, Sadie Nuffer, Angel Court Jewels, House of Smash, Kacey Edwards, Erin Wilson and more but unfortunately I have forgotten the names...

   After almost a year of living here, I finally got my jewelry out and pinned on my jewelry board. This is mostly vintage costume jewelry that has been handed down to me by family members or gifted to me. There are some necklaces I have made too... I just love the way it all looks out on display. All the "good stuff" is locked away until I am in a more permanent place. I would be devastated if anything ever happened to my sentimental and valuable jewels!

Spring Flowers

  Yesterday I got a chance to go shopping for flowers for my flower pots. 
I chose primrose, petunias, African marigolds and slavia.
I haven't ever grown primrose, I couldn't resist these beautiful little flowers!

  The wind has been blowing at a constant 25 mph with gusts up to 40 mph. 
It is really insane. Yesterday it made me laugh, but after keeping me up all night I am not so fond of these winds. Apparently it is common for this time of year.
Hopefully my flowers and I will survive it :)

Excited for everything to bloom out and look full. My ferns are left over from last year so hopefully they will liven up.

Primrose, cilantro, African marigolds, salvia.
