This is where all my time is spent. Some of the necklaces have sold but I am glad I took a family picture.
The large fluted bead is over 100 years old and comes from Ethiopia. It is one of thier prayer beads. The Cobalt blue is also from there.
The long one is for the church. The other I am wearing to church today!

I am now really hooked! I look at found objects in a different light. Hum can this be hung around the neck or is it to HUGE.

Thanks so much for all the support and encourging words. I don't want to gush BUT this is such a fun site! Thanks Sue.

I made the washtub table with an old red beatup wooden tool holder for the base. I then made a village inside it that I added christmas lights, went to the thrift store and found a piece of glass, 9.00! The glass companies here in town, wanted 120.00! My picture won't download something about too many pixels? I will have to have my hubby adjust it and then post it. Thank you. Its one of my very favorite things in my livingroom. You are my hero. These necklaces are truely amazing!!!!! I wish we were neighbors and we could go alley shopping. Take care. Annie Posted: 2:48 pm on April 8th
