Spring is in the air

It's May!
I can't believe it!
We have been planting, planting, planting in the garden. Tomatoes(CHECK), lavender(CHECK), hydrangeas(CHECK). Now if I could keep all the snails and slugs away...that would be very helpful. I've also been busy with special orders. Mother's Day is almost here! Only about 7wks until school ends...amazing. I'm not really sure what big plans we have, but X sure does=0)

Here is a stack of fine silver rings for Mother's Day. These are a lot of fun to make=0)
She is going to love these.

Add fine silver to any necklace. I can hand stamp these too.

Fun Spring hat.
My personal assistant wanted to be in the shot=0)

This is one of my favorites for little girls. Perfect for Spring and Summer fun=0)

I've been wanting to make this hat for myself for a while. I made it in a toddler size first and then adults wanted it! I was happy that I wasn't the only one that liked this style, lol. I've been looking for something casual that would cover all my gray hair! It always turns out that my hair needs to be re done and I have an appointment somewhere and I just can wear a bandana, LOL. So here it is and I make it a little loose, so you don't get hat head. There are also lots of holes, so your head can breathe=0) Can you tell that I've given this project a lot of thought? LOL.

Here's a 1920's hat that I just love. I have a hat like this and every time I wear it I get asked about it=0) I'm so glad I finally found a hat that works for me. I always felt very awkward wearing a hat, but I guess 2011 is the year of the hat for me, lol.

Hope that you all are having a wonderful Spring. Everyone start using your thigh masters because summer is right around the corner!

Have a lovely day,

My other job.......
Me-It's almost summer!
X-I know and I've been thinking about going to France.
Me-That would be nice, but it's a LONG plane ride.
X-I know, but I really want to see C and O.
Me-Maybe you should talk to Daddy about that.
X-Okay...okay...okay...I guess I need to see what else we could do.

  2. Hi Carol girl friend!
    Thinking about France with you girl! I will pack my bags and hick a ride with you :) !!

    Love the hats, they remind me of when I was doing them in my young child/teen years in the 70's and loved making them, I use to do the swim suits tops they were soooo! cute, all my friends and there mom's had me making them for them as well, when I lived on Lake Washington, Washington state.

    The rings are a favorite I would love to have some, are you going to sell them, or some??
