For my sisters birthday, I made her a quilt. It was super fun to make and I used fabrics I had on hand. The cool thing is that many of those fabrics had been used on other projects. With my sister recently moving and not living in our hometown, I thought she would appreciate the sentimentality of it. She loved it! Starting from the left (the first one is the olive green floral and its a bit cut off), the olive green floral was used on a quilt I have in my living room. The second from the left, the lily pad fabric, was used on curtains in our family beach house at St. Teresa, also where we had our little girls baptized. The fourth fabric, the pink polka dot, was used on the table at my little girls 2 year old party. The sixth fabric, an aqua with yellow flowers, was used on a bag I made for my sister last christmas. The seventh fabric, chocolate, red and aqua floral, was made into a dress that I wear and actually fits!

Mother Daughter Style

The Long and Skinny of it
I am a fan of the Southern Living blurb they do every month in their magazine about mother daughter style. I like to day dream about my necklaces being showcased in their column. I recently made a necklace for a daughter, and its shown here on my blog.  The mother liked it so much she wanted one for herself! Here is what I created for her. Like mother, like daughter.

An Oldie but a Goodie

On Pins and Needles

I found this picture on sold items on etsy. I wish I had kept it for myself! And I took this picture in my old yard and seeing the orange zinnia makes me appreciate the great yard we had where anything would grow! It is certainly not the case in our new yard. But its getting there. Anyways, just wanted to share an oldie but a goodie. And as always, you can purchase The Governor's Daughter necklaces at our etsy site by clicking here.

The Royal Treatment

We are off to visit my sister for her birthday and visit with her family. My niece, who is 7 months older than my little girl and is 2, is into purple. And she is in a big girl bed now and I know she would love these beds. I had twin beds growing up and it was great to have one for me and one for my sister. My sister and I both had a set of twin beds in our own rooms but we spent many nights in each others rooms. Very sweet.

Show me a Good Time
I love the look of this necklace. The black and white contrasted with the bright green, turquoise, coral and orange shebet is stunning. You can purchase it by clicking here. The black and white bead reminds me of this great DIY rug I saw on a blog the other day. I was amazed! Check out the rug here. Thanks to Carissa at The Fabulous Design File.

A Friend of Long and Skinny

The Long and Skinny of It
I made this necklace recently for a friend. She loved it! The red against the periwinkle is such a nice pop and the shapes of all the beads is interesting. So, sadly, this one is taken.

Bridal Party

Monday, August 22, 2011

I recently created necklaces for bridesmaids for a wedding. These gals didn't wear them in the wedding but the necklaces were gifts and were made with the wedding colors in mind. Coral, peach, blue and white porcelain, mossy green- they are great colors! Here are the bridesmaids after receiving their gifts at the bridesmaids luncheon. The reception was at the Old Capital in downtown Tallahassee. What a neat idea!

Hi, I am back from va-kay! We had a blast in California and here we are in Pfeiffer Beach in Big Sur. On a side note, the Bing search page showed Pfeiffer Beach the next day. What are the chances! After dealing with jet lag, we are back to the daily grind...

Loud and Punchy

Loud and Punchy
I'll be honest. I made this necklace to sell but it looks like I might be holding on to it for awhile. The colors are so great! Loud and punchy.
