Frills and Flowers

Hi! It's Monday! Another stunningly beautiful day here at the beach. And probably where you are too...the weather guy says yes?

Waking up to a house filled with sunshine really starts the week off perfectly, doesn't it!

I have hyacinths from Trader Joe's...5 stems/ $5.00.

I stood there in the market... in a quandry, yet again! Pink. Blue? Pink! Blue...oh for that price get both. Oooh and the scent....spring is in the air for sure.....

And how about a 2.99 pot of bright yellow tete a tete daffs! Love them with my blue and whites....

In my etsy shop, new: found treasures...for Valentine gifts, Mothers Day, treat yourself?

I find these tiny chandelier crystals now and then when I am hunting for the big icicle prisms for my Christmas ornaments. Last summer the woman who was selling asked me what I do with the crystals. I explained...and she poked the miniatures with a perfectly manicured NY fingernail:
"What about these?"
Well I don't know but they're pretty..., I said.
She held up the amethyst drop: "They'd make such amazing, romantic pendants," she said, holding it to her throat.
And so the prism necklaces were born. I hope you all like them!

This is my favorite---already sold. But I have many tiny vintage keys...just have to find my extra hearts....

Have a great week!
