Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed the faint chirping of birdsong in the early mornings this past week? This always signals to me that spring is, indeed, on its way! The next sign I'll be looking for is the blooming of the cherry blossom trees! ;)
I've been working with some iconic imagery this week... tried and true favourites that hopefully strike a chord with some of you.
A wind-up watch, chain and fob...
Wise old owls...
Hearts... <3
And religious medals, including an actual vintage icon from around the WWII era!
If you haven't already done so, please enter to win these Valetine earrings by sharing my blog with someone you love, then simply comment here by telling me who you chose and why you love them.
The drawing will be held on February 5, and the winner will be announced no later than February 7.
Thank you for visiting and please listen carefully for the birdsong. ;)

French Opulence

This week I've been playing with traditional French imagery, rhinestones, gemstones and lots of je ne sais quoi... ooh, la, la!
Merci beaucoup for stopping by and have an opulent weekend, mes amis! :)

Chasing Away the Winter Blues

With a mid-January chill in the air, and the festivities of the holidays behind us, many people find themselves experiencing a bit of the winter blues, myself included.
To combat this, I dreamt up some pretty new treasures this week with just a hint of spring in their step...
Butterflies, birds and flowers take center stage
with accents of moss, robin's egg and turquoise.
I also added one more Valetine-themed piece for good measure, this cameo and heart bracelet...
which is a perfect segue for me to remind everyone to please enter my earring give-away contest!
One lucky winner will receive these ruby heart earrings! To enter, simply share my blog with someone you love and comment here by letting me know whom you chose and why you love them. Drawing will be held on February 5, with the winner announced no later than February 7.
Thank you all for stopping by, and here's hoping your winter blues have been officially chased away! :)
