My sympathies to all of those in Colorado and the other western states who have been affected by the devastating fires. And to those dealing with the blistering temperatures in the midwest and east, trying to cope with no power while dealing with damage from the storms. Oh and flooding in the south. Good grief! Yes, it's been HOT here! But we're locally dealing with heat and heat only. I'm hoping for fast relief for all those who are suffering through this and thankful that we've been less affected.
A warm welcome to Raida, creator of the beautiful Havana Beads headpins featured in my last post.
And to The Flying Tortoise. Thank you for sharing those helpful tips. Appreciate it!
I'm loving having the blogroll on my sidebar. So much easier to keep up with all of you. Now I just need to update it, cuz I seem to be missing some of your blogs. Maybe give me your link in a comment and I'll get you there where you belong.
I did manage to squeeze in a little working time. Yup, still in assembling mode. My hammers are calling me and I'm missing them. Maybe I should just smash up some of my assembled pieces. What do you think? Any of these hammer worthy?
The Bohemian Wanderer
Garnets, Peridot, Czech glass, vintage buttons, beads and beadcaps, upcycled tin
and a sense of wanderlust.
These look like they need to go somewhere!
and not just because the prop tree is attacking them!
These already found a new home.
They were named "Ice Cream in Paris" by their their new person.
See, the ice cream theme permeates my very existance.!
Turkoman Goes Modern in the Mysterious Lagoon
You might remember these. They began as this
then I added the blue and green that you saw in the last post.
He Softly Cooed Until He Won Her Heart
yes, that's what I actually named them.
and no, I can't smash the name with a hammer.
Well, I could, but I won't.
Pretend you like it, ok?
The Literary Wanderer
White agate teardrops, black plated chain,
nibs from fanci, rhinestone rondels, frosted blue glass beads,
enameled headpins and upcycled tin
My signature hatchmarks and dimples, up close but not particularly personal.
When you put them on all of your tin jewelry, they do become your signature.
It's a thing. I'm not making this stuff up, guys.
Whispering Lanterns of Old Shanghai
enameled headpins, kyanite spears, roller printed and flame painted copper,
upcycled tin beadcaps
didya notice I didn't name these wandering _________?
I know, usually I'm all dancing this and dancing that.
Too tired to think about dancing tonight but possibly I'm prone to wandering?
Turquoise Tin Shields
The Princess and the Frog
sold and named by the lovely lady who now owns them
Now we'll see how quickly I get these other babies listed.
Won't be within the next few days, but that's no surprise to you, is it? They never get listed that fast!
Well, almost never.
That's all folks!
so this is what it feels like to do a short post, eh?
hmmm, I kinda like it.
Have a fun week everybody!
(even though this looks like someone threw a skein of yarn in a spinning wind tunnel, this is a real dog, with a hefty hairdresser bill, I would guess.)
For you ladies that asked how to put your blogroll on your sidebar, here's how to do it:
Thanks deservedly go to numinosity Kim who explained it to me.
1. Go to Blogger dashboard and click
2. Then go to layout (on the left side column), click and it will bring you to the add a gadget page
3. Click on add a gadget and a menu of features will pop up. Go to the blog list one and add that.
4. It will give you an option to add all of the blogs you follow all at once or one by one.
5. You can choose how you want them displayed, with title or text included, etc.
It's really easy to do and I LOVE it! Thanks again, Kim!
