Christmas Came Early

A few months ago I asked a good friend of mine to keep her eyes open for pearls. I use them in many of my projects and go through them pretty fast. I was expecting Gail to find a few strands here and there or maybe a loose lot or two but oh no, no, no, she scored! When I opened the box there were HUNDREDS of the little lovelies. White ones, creamy ones, big and small ones. It was like Christmas! Gail was even sweet enough to separate the pearls into categories for me! Thank you sooooo much for taking time out of your schedule to help me with my endless pursuit of the pearl.

In my last post I mentioned the empty pocket watches I found that I had an idea for. Well here they are in their new incarnation - mini shadowboxes encased in a wonderful old pocket watch! Wear them as a necklace or hang them in a favorite spot in your home. They'd even make a great holiday ornament. I think they're really lovely and wish I would've have bought more of them! I simply ADORE the glittered encrusted shells that house the shadowboxes and think the whole package was just too much fun! Don't you just love it when creativity makes you soar! I'm trying to think of other uses for the glittered shells. Maybe a place card holder on a festive table? Any ideas?

Have a happy weekend! XOXXOO
