Irresistible Tulips

Saw these tulips at the grocery store & couldn't resist them.




A pretty little white rose from the trellis in our side yard:


N brought me home a dragonfly from his walk yesterday (he knows I have a "natural history" collection).

Bunny & Moon

A new card for my JoyceAlice2 shop.





Also, re-did my "Faith - Hope - Love" charm in my SeeingEye shop.  Am offering only one finish now (brushed) but 2 different styles of bail (jump ring OR double loop with crystal) so needed new pix.

chess table --- finished

My chess table is done!  Yay!

I didn't outline the board in black after all --- I decided I liked it best unbounded.
Also decided to paint the notation letters and numbers with the same green as the dark squares instead of using black marker.

I gave it 3 coats of polyurethane, and had to keep it outside in the porch for a couple of days til the smell abated.

It's not perfect, but I like how it turned out.  And now I am ready to play some chess!






My Isle of Lewis chessmen.  Aren't they cool?

IN one ear and OUT the other ...

Just added these to my JoyceAlice2 etsy shop 

Amusing little dangle earrings   :)



Or  "R" for right ear and "L" for left ear.    :)


I am going to wear a pair tonight and see if N notices....
