greencolleen writes: Gretchen you are sooooo talented ;).folks even tho the pics are great they are alittle short on how beautiful these pieces are in person. they truely are crafted with love. and as someone stated earlier "life is too short to wear department store jewelry".
on a different note Gretchen i have figured out how to easily get the dang lables off the bottles;). so will send more your way. also will post soon on my swap projects it really stretches the creativity. thank you Sue for this fun opportunity :). Posted: 10:03 am on April 22nd
