Golden Strawflowers


You know the summer season is just around the corner when the flower and vegetable plants are out at the greenhouses. This flower is called Basket Bon Bon { Bracteantha }. The color of the flowers just glow in the evening sun.

Lady & the Brooch


This beaded brooch looks like something the lady in the photo might wear. Amber colored beads and a rhinestone button and some iridescent seed beads were used to create this round brooch.

Lavender & Amethyst Glass Necklace


Shades of lavender and amethyst colored glass with light shade of amber colored frosted glass flower beads have been used in this necklace. The large ornate antique silver round is really just a very cool button. Do you see the tiny key on this beaded pendant?

New Workroom Setup


I have set up a new little work area for the summer, so I can work on projects while The Crystal Pinecone is open this summer season. I just need to take out my portable sewing machine that was a Christmas gift from my sister and brother-in law..Nance and Chuck. I have the window for good light and everything is on or in this antique dresser that I will need for projects. By the way I got this solid oak dresser at a garage sale. It was covered with many coats of paint.
