Weekend Plans

Yesterday I took the afternoon off from work. I got home around lunchtime. I needed to pick up and clean the house a little bit. We are having guests this weekend. Joe's sister and her husband, and Joe's friend Larry (from college) are coming into town tonight. Tomorrow we are having our annual summer party. Unfortunately, quite a few people from out of town that we invited, can't make it this year. So it will be our 3 out of town guests, plus several local couples.


Saturday morning we are all headed to the annual Bouckville Antique Fair. I went last year. You probably remember reading about it. I look forward to it but won't be spending much money this year as my cash is slated for Bead Fest in Philly next weekend! But it's fun to go and look around anyway. Then we'll come back and have some good food, laughs, hang out til late, and try not to wake the neighbors.



I got some work done yesterday afternoon and these pieces will be going in my shop momentarily. This necklace (below) - I'm quite proud of it. I used my Tang Baby felted beads from one of the tubes, and some ceramic buttons from Marsha Neal Studios. Silk cord up around the back. One strand is etched Vintaj Brass chain, one is small copper metal seed beads with some faceted opal green rondelles. I made little squiggles of bronze artist wire and attached them to brass eyepins that I threaded each of the felt beads onto. It's a longer style necklace which I've been enjoying making lately.

Don't forget, if you haven't already commented on the Enchanted Adornments Giveaway Post, Sunday will be the last day. I pick a random winner on Monday Aug. 17!
