Is it Spring yet??

I'm so ready for Spring!!! Today was the first day in a long while that I actually went out without wearing a jacket! The sun was out, the birds were chirping, and Craig (hubby) and I went running around all afternoon. Yard sales are something we both love going to, but since it's not quite the time for yard sales yet, we decided to go hit a few thrift shops. We wern't looking for anything specific...we just wanted to get out, drive around in the sun, listen to some rock music, forget everything on the "to do" list, and maybe find a few treasures too. And speaking of treasures....I did find a few things, a big beautiful round copper color plate to set on my dining room table, a brand new lil fountain with rocks ( it takes batteries, but what the heck!), a lovely springish table cloth, a really pretty spring-style vase, and a cool hardback book about angels. Not a bad haul for one day of thrift shopping! :D

"Blue Skys"

Lately, I'm really into different styles of vases. I like incorporating them into my jewelry photos, and they're really nice for wrapping necklaces around so the clasp is shown in the front. The necklace above is one of my newest pieces. It consists of African Sodalite gems in the form of puffed pillows and coins with sterling silver chain. You can see more photos at The Jewelry Box. The weekend is Mother-in-law's (Flo) b-day is tomorrow, and Sunday is the big Rings&Things bead show. I'm looking forward to both events! I just hope the sun shines all weekend!

Thrifting and yard sales? We could be the same person!! Rick & I love doing that on a sunny day too. But we probably have to wait a couple more months for the weather to cooperate.
