Watches, Sunshine, Smiles, and Projects.

A sweet card for you.
From goodies off the internet.
(sorry i do not have source.)

Here is a bit of redness for you.
A jewelry box, with watches in it.
(I paid $7.00 for the vintage jewelry box and contents!)

Some cool jewelry someone was working on.
See the two pins made of miscellaneous watch parts?

And here is an interesting piece of jewelry.
A band bracelet made of watch parts.

Here is a bit of outdoor sunshine for you.

This duck hi tailed it when I got my camera out.
Maybe bad feather day?

Some beautiful red Rhody's.
Everything is blooming so early this year!!

Our granddaughter Ava on family Sunday.
Nice enough day that we were running around the yard playing tag!
So glad to be 61, and still be able to chase kids around the yard.
(glad she stopped though,
I needed to catch my breath!) =)

Here is an easy, and affordable project for you.
A cheese dome, candle holder, and broken Paris clock.

Turned into a sweet serving plate.

What a mess!!!
Valentine's out.....

New display coming....

Another step closer.
White lace curtains over two old windows.
lace tablecloth.

More coming soon. =)

I'm participating with these wonderful ladies.
Won't you please go check out their blogs?
Oh, and be sure to thank them for all their
work in organizing these special days..

I can hear the gears creaking in my head now from all your good ideas ;)
I love your vintage jewelry box find WITH stuff still in it! And your watch piece bracelet is too cool. It's funny you said you can still chase your grands at age 61 - that is really good.
I love the cheese lid, candleholder serving plate. I need to make one o' those. Happy Reds~
