I Can't find Anything...Offerings

Yet I need inspiration...know what I mean...all the funny quirky stuff you just have to have on a whim... that you know some day will lead you on that quest for the perfect product you will eventually sell online or at the shop...right.

Well, I ain't fallin' for that one...I just love stuff, it makes me smile...but I must say after this last election, it doesn't take much to make me smile! But you NEED all this stuff to be efficient, right...salted sunflower seeds (oh, yeah)...a must, a bottle of water (in case then nights get long)...perhaps a cocktail (or two), pliers, junk drawers (possibly empty and all over the table), sweet music playing on the Bose and the stillness of the night (except when Scratch hears a mouse). But every artist knows what it takes to be efficient...CRAP EVERYWHERE!!!

But there are fruits of this labor, I managed to get another necklace and earrings finished AND I would like to thank Charmaine High Desert Diva for the beautiful, vintage, yellow beads. They were the inspiration for this piece. They represent the sun shining through the keyhole of my heart's home, key always available to a friend. Thank you so much Charmaine.
A key to my home
off'rings of friendship within,
tis' my heart I give.
Well...then there's Mulder...Mulder is just Mulder...for those of you that are new to the blog, Mulder, my faithful yard ornament has been to Florida and back with me and 3 households and now rests at the chateau, marking the true insanity of the keeper of the heap. Once gracing my header, now retired, he is free to travel the globe...lucky stiff!!!

*waves to Mulder*

I can't believe you've already made a necklace & earring set with those beads! Love the addition of the key.

Wish I had some of your enthusiasm!

Lovely necklace and earrings. Those beads are like drops of light and the addition of the key on the necklace makes it quite enchanting!

Sharon, just love your posts. I think you were supposed to be author of many many books. You are good girl, keeps us coming back for more, reading and junk surfing!!

Love your jewelry, Nut. I can't EVEN take a picture of the Tasteful Nook b/c it is a shameful mess (just ask Lauri). The cubby filled with treasures is fab-u. So R U.

p.s. glad you brought Mulder in for the winter. He looks like he's perfect for the fireplace hearth.

I like the key. The chatelaine necklace.

I'm looking for old skeleton keys for some doors/drawers. Do you have a good source?
