Do you remember this little chest of drawers that I bought at a yard sale about a year ago? It sat on the front porch for a couple of months until the weather was really too wet and cold to work on it, so we moved it into the basement. I finally pulled it back outside a couple of weeks ago and sanded and painted it. I just moved it up to the guest room to replace the dresser that I gave to Emily a year ago. I think it is pretty cute. Want to come and visit me? Now there is a place for you to put your, uh, socks. You can also see my Amish wannabe quilt reflected in the mirror.
And here is my finished jewelry made with the silver pieces I created in the class I took last weekend. Hard to photograph. That's a pearl hanging on the end of the triangle. It's really pretty with a very slight pinkish cast to it, but it looks like nothing in the photo. You can see that I used the little squares that looked a bit like buttons to make a pair of earrings. They were made from the scraps that were left from the other pieces. Gerrie has a wonderful pair of earrings that I have admired (coveted) that have a silver square and a red bead. They were my inspiration for these.
