Interesting Moss Growing In My Garden

I like an interesting garden, and formal in design doesn't appeal to me.  So, I was excited to discover this unusual type of moss (to me) growing bedside my patio along with my creeping thyme.  One little patch reminds me of very fine broccoli sprouts and the other a juniper ground cover.  It's happily growing and adds a little bit interest to my garden which I enjoy.

Thrifting And Found Vintage 1960s Dusty Pink Glove & Head Scarf Set

Last week I was out thrifting and came across a very pretty 1960s vintage dusty pink glove and scarf set.  They were boxed and appear to have never been used - a great find!  They were also at the bottom of a crowded  glass counter in a corner - but I spotted them! The nylon gloves and semi sheer scarf are embellished with machine embroidered heart shaped clover - very feminine chic.  I initially thought that the long oblong shaped scarf was just a long oblong shape but was thrilled to discover that it opens up to be a hooded head scarf.  This is a great set for a special formal event, to recreate old hollywood glamour or just for the love of vintage. You never know what you're going to find at a thrift store.

Hello Spring! Copper Wire Bird Necklace

"Spring is the time of year when it is summer in the summer in the sun and winter in the shade." Charles Dickens, Great Expectations The anticipation of spring -  I look forward to warmer temperatures, clear air, garden cleanup, flowers starting to poke through the soil, and the arrival of new/more birds.  We always have Junco's and chickadees in our backyard during the winter and spring months, so the arrival of other species is something that we look forward to.  And, because I have a fondness for these creatures, and like creating jewelry with images of them, I'm posting this necklace that I recently made.  The frame is pure copper wire, wire wrapped seed beads and poppy jasper stone beads.  I have it listed here on my website.
