A necklace gift

This a fabulous necklace!! My friends husband asked me to make this for her. It is the letter texture that I love to make that has been oxidized to bring it out. It has a lovely peridot that is the birthstone of their new daughter. It is one inch square. And let me tell you it looked amazing one her. I enjoyed making if for them, it took most of a day, not bad I say. I am so happy that she loved it. 
I hope that you all have had a fabulous Christmas. I know that we did. 
Thank you for reading.

Quinn and his quilt

First Merry Christmas everyone!!! 

 Here is Quinn and I working on his quilt. I was working on it and he asked if he could learn and help. How amazing is that? So he is working on his square and is doing an amazing job. I am so impressed with how quickly he picked it up. 
He is a wonder. 
I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and I hope that you all have a joyful and wonder-filled one. 
Thank you all for following and reading. 
Happy holidays

Working away

 Yesterday was a great day to be working away in the studio. It was rainy and raw outside. 
But inside the studio was cozy and warm. The wood stove was working great. The above image is of me working hard on a pattern/texture that will be on a piece. I can feel all of that hammering today! Whoosh, it was a lot. But man it did feel good, I haven't made that in awhile. I will have to make up more to keep some on the ready.  
 Here is Steve chopping wood for the fire. He is the most amazing husband ever. Thank you for keeping me warm. 
Here I am working at my bench. I love my bench, its like home. I have to get the studio the more, hopefully the trend of the warmish winter will keep up. Once it gets too cold I will not be able to get in there as much I was would like. 
Thanks reading. 
Have a joyful and safe holiday season.

For anyone who know, they know my love for vintage kitschy dishes. I have a huge love for all things pyrex. I just wanted to share a couple of my latest finds. They are wonderful and make me smile.  
 The above image is a fabulous vintage Santa spoon rest. Look at it, doesn't it just make you smile. It is on our stove for holiday season. I found it at one of our local Antiques store (Bernat Antiques). I pick it up for only $1!! Can you believe it?
 This is a amazing fridge glass pyrex. It is a fabulous blue color. No chips or marks. The cover is a perfect. 
I am using it a a little sewing "basket". It is the items that I need at hand to be working on Quinn's quilt. It works perfect, it sit on our end table. I have everything that I need at arms length. 
I also picked that great find up at Bernat for only $5!!! 
I love getting a really great deal. 
Thanks for indulging my obsession for dishes.
