Hello Spring - Spring Time Flowers In My Garden

Ah, Spring.  Mother nature keeps playing with us.  One day it's sunny and mild....then it's overcast and cold again.  But, it looks like spring really is around the corner because my crocuses are in bloom.  We'll soon be able to pack away our winter coats.  Hooray.

Winter Heath - The little pink flowers of winter heath in my garden are a welcome sight as soon as the snow has gone because it's colour in the garden when everything is looking so drab.  And on a warm spring day it is full of bees - they love it.  Especially after a long winter.

Ah, Spring.  It's almost here.

Pink and Orange Colour Combination

It's probably not often thought of as a colour combination that works, but I absolutely love the colour combination of pink and orange.  I think it's a stunning combination, a bit bold, cheerful, reminds me of summer, a mood booster - and colour does affect your mood.  If you mixed the two colours together you would get pink.....and I love pink too.  I look to nature to find colour pallettes to work with and sometimes I just have to open my back door.  These are the fall berries of Euonymus fortunei.  A happy bit of colour in my fall garden.

Copper and Blue Glass Bead Dangle Earrings

I've been playing with copper again and made these pretties.  There are a number of shades of blue that work well with copper and this is one of them.  In going through my bead stash I came across these blue glass lentil shape beads - there were two, so of course I made earrings.  I'll be listing them in our Etsy shop in the new year.

Chunky Carnelian Nugget Bracelet

Chunky statement jewelry never went out of fashion. Some women love a fun, bold fashion bracelet like this bracelet that I've adorned with carnelian nuggets, Czech glass beads and Karen Hill Tribe silver charms. You can see more pics here.
