CHRISTMAS PRESENTS I MADE



When I was young and having my children, I did not care what sex they were as long as they were healthy, and I was truly blessed with two healthy son's. But what woman does not secretly want to have a daughter. My next thought was that my wonderful son's would find wonderful ladies, and yes, my husband and I must have done something right, I have one daughter in law and one that will be in the near future. I think of these ladies as my daughters, they are just wonderful and I love them so much. We always have such a wonderful time together. I wanted to make them something for Christmas this year, so I decided to make them each a necklace. The first one is for Nicole. I found this wonderful pendant and the initials were G N, but these vintage pendants were made to put your initials in them, so I was able to change it to N G. The other necklace was for Chrissy, she loves blue so I bought this wonderful vintage dress clip and made her's. They both loved them and it was such a treat to give my "daughters" these gifts. Thanks for visiting me today and have a lovely week. Hugs, Terri

Both pieces are very stunning. But I must say that the blue cobalt dress clip and beaded necklace is my favorite!
