What I did with my White/Clear Charms

We had a wonderful charm swap in the Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group, hosted by the wonderful Rhonda 7, as I call her. She loves the number 7 and was born on the 7th of November. Seven is my lucky number so we are always fighting over it, in a fun way. This time the charm swap was white/clear beads with silver, a great color for summer. We make 25 charms and send them to Rhonda and she swaps them out and this is what I did with my charms. I always make more so that I can add some of my charms to my returns. I made this charm bracelet and then with the extra's I decided to make a necklace. I used an old dress clip and then added the charms. Thank you so much Rhonda 7, for hosting these wonderful swaps. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend and thank you for visiting me today. Now back to yard work in the heat. Hugs, Terri

Marie Cuff Swap

This one I made for an example and gave it to my sister for her Birthday

This one I made for my partner Robin, who does not like cream or pink

This is the cuff that my partner Robin made for me!

In the Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group, I hosted a Marie Cuff Swap. It was my first time making a cuff with a metal blank and I really enjoyed it. The cream cuff was made first to be an example and I gave it to my sister for her Birthday, the second cuff, the grey and green one is for my partner Robin, who does not like cream or pink. The third cuff is the cuff that Robin made for me. It is beautiful, thank you so much Robin, I love it. Thanks for visiting me today. Hugs, Terri

Tea Cup Tuesday

Hello, thank you for visiting me today for Tea Cup Tuesday. The tea cup that I would like to share with you today is a tea cup that I purchased last week. I love tea cups with roses and I love these roses and I love the aqua color. I thought it had an interesting pattern too. It is a Royal Kent tea cup. I also found these cute little tooth pick holders. They looked so cute all together that I had to get them all. I am going to use them as vases. I love the faces and love the beautiful pink and gold on them. They are unmarked. I hope you have a wonderful week.
We had a terrible storm go through on Saturday night and just got power back Monday afternoon, luckily we have a generator, but it was used to keep the frig and freezer cold. It is so great to have our power back. It was a rough couple of days. Hugs, Terri

Bloggerette Sorority Match Box Swap

I joined the Bloggerette Sorority Match Box Swap and my partner is Liz of Rose Vignettes
It was such a pleasure to meet Liz and have her as my partner. She loves blue and white and touches of yellow. So I made her match box with blue french ledger paper and added lots of white lace. I also added a vintage rhinestone button for a handle and used vintage velvet millinery flowers for the top. I sent her tags with rhinestones buttons and ribbons. I also sent her a vintage hanky and a beautiful soldered charm. I hope she loves everything. It was a wonderful swap and I would like to thank Debi for hosting it. Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs, Terri
