Textile Art Necklaces

 It's always a wonderful thing when I make some time to play in the studio! I've been wanting to create some textile based necklaces for a while now.

 I just love it when the vision in my head and what comes out in the end are both the same!!

 I made several different ones, all to go with some of my favorite tops.

These top two are my favorites!!

 Although to be honest, I do love them all.

 I know many of you may think they are too matchy-matchy for your tastes, but I am a tone on tone kind of girl! :)

 I really like the addition of the inspirational type words on them. We all need those little reminders every now and then. :)

I am having so much making these, I cant seem to stop! Every free moment I have is spent in the studio making more!

I posted these on Facebook last week and got such a wonderful response from everyone!
I was asked by several of the ladies for a tutorial and since it's been quite some time since I made a new one, I decided it was time!!

Sweet Salvage-Rustic Luxe

This weekend is the Sweet Salvage sale. I always look forward to going because there is so much vintage eye candy all in one place! One of my favorite things about the new building and layout is the addition of a courtyard area that is filled with yummy garden accessories and greenery. 

 This Arizona girl loves all the architectural goodies, wrought iron and pretty plants! Really, anything that doesn't look like the desert!

 I could just sit out there and watch all the activity all day if they would let me!!

 There are always pretty garden goodies inside too!

 This week I found several amazing storage pieces that I was drooling over. This one in particular was my absolute favorite! It is stunning dont you think???

This is an artists dream.
 This one is a little industrial for my taste but it's still fabulous.

 Love both of these!!!
 The warehouse is always a little more rustic than inside Sweet but it's all still beautiful.

And as always I'm attracted to chippy, white anything!!!!!

 I adore Marmalade jars! The graphics are just too cool.

 If I had room on my kitchen counter I would love to own one of these.

 Yes, please. I'll just take it all!

 Isn't this sooo clever and cute?

Bling to make your heart sing!!!

 This cabinet and what's inside just makes my insides all bubbly (in a good way! LOL!)

Can you say "Fabulous" ????

 Everything I love...

And finally, this blue table is so wonderful. I hate that I have no room left for anything else in my house!!! 

Hope you enjoyed the tour! See you soon!

I'm teaching a class at Rusty Saturday!

 I am so happy to be able to announce my class held at Rusty Saturday in Phoenix!

I will be teaching my students how to use encaustic wax to make a super cool altered Bottle Wall hanging.

We will be using both new and vintage goodies, so each bottle will be unique.

Ever since I learned about encaustic wax, I have been obsessed with it!

I will even be teaching some basic soldering techniques for anyone who wants to add that detail to their bottles.

I love how many different looks can be achieved depending on the materials used.

The class will be held March 6th and again on March 8th.
