Well, I'm off for a little R&R. My family and I will be doing a little camping. We will be gone for a few days, then back for a little bit, then off again. The lake we will be going to is just beautiful. The kids have so much fun swimming and biking. And there is even full bathroom facilities with SHOWERS and ELECTRICITY. If I'm going to be tent camping then this is the way to go! I'll show you pictures when I return.


I thought it would be fun to leave you with a "Giveaway". I love making these vintage necklaces. Each one is made using vintage pieces of jewelry that I've collected. For every comment left (one per person) your name will be entered in a drawing. This "Giveaway" will end Sunday evening(July 20) at 7:00pm. Be sure to come back Monday to see if you have won!

In the meantime, scrole down, way down, and have fun!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Talk soon!

I just love, love, love this necklace! You are so talented in putting things together - such a nostalgic piece of jewelry. I could see it around my neck now! :)
Have fun camping - we don't set out for camping until August, so I have a ways to wait!
Thanks for a great blog!

I love that you recycled all those pieces into something awesome. I see a broken chain and think "mehhh", a broken chain. You on the other hand see it through different eyes.

Camping brings back so many childhood memories for me, the smell of the huge breakfasts my aunt would make on the open campfire, roasting marshmallows, at least 15 cousins that we only got to be around a few weeks a year. Swimming and exploring, thanks for letting me reminisce. Have a wonderful time on your adventure.
