Worth A Thousand Words

Sometimes a picture really can be worth a thousand words.
In these photos, I see many of my favorite things . . .

Tea, bone china teacups, flowers (especially pansies), the act of making jewelry, (and jewelry, itself!), bracelets, BEADS!, the color purple, aurora borealis . . .


Not too long ago, I spent an afternoon making this bracelet.

It was a welcome break during a particularly busy week.


What are you up to lately? πŸ˜€

  1. Its just beautiful and a great prop too!

    I am busy straighting the crib…reclaiming the space left by the brats that have moved just a mile away…plotting where the remodeling will start…yay! buying new furniture…enjoying coming home and finding it the same as it was when I left…clean!

    and sewing…

  2. Oooooo – so pretty! Very eye-catching bracelet.

    I would have to say that this month has been the Month of Computer Issues for me. I just Fedex’ed my computer back to the PC techs yesterday for the second time this month. It’s really putting me behind in my work…and I lost all of my files for 2012, the first time the issue happened with the computer.

    Oh well…tomorrow is a new month!

    Happy Leap Year Day!

  3. Happy Birthday, Yona!!! πŸ˜€
    (Wishing you a year (or many!) with-OUT computer problems! (So sorry about the loss of files! Been there – it is painful!)

  4. I have been working and attending classes. All classes are going well so far, and I observed 3, 4, and 5th grade last Friday for my Foundations in Teaching class. I had a great time and enjoyed being with the kids.

    It is getting warm here and I’m looking forward to getting out on the Harley. Have a great weekend everyone. Carol, I’m so glad you are reclaiming your space and finding some peace and quiet.

    The bracelet is beautiful and it reminds me of the upcoming spring season. I have to be thankful it has not been a bad winter here, but I keep thinking its not over yet!!

  5. Hi Kelly!
    So happy to hear that you continue to enjoy your studies. xo
    Are you planning to teach, eventually?

    It’s been a very unusual winter here in New England, as well. We’ve had hardly any snow at all – and only one storm that required a snow shovel! We’re saving money on heating, though. πŸ˜€

  6. Kelly, same here. I think hubby used the snow blower twice all winter. And one time was just to make sure the repairs he had made were working ok. The snow has been so light you could use your breath to blow it away. Not that I am complaining. I hate piles of snow everywhere. It has been an extremely mild winter. But you have to wonder… what is in store for us come July and Aug. Hope it is bearable.

  7. Eeks, Donna!!!!
    I hadn’t thought of that yet…. I HOPE it won’t be a summer with record heat! Actually, it’s the humidity that I dislike most. Let’s all cross our fingers for moderate heat, little humidity, and plenty of sunshine! πŸ˜€

  8. What a lovely bracelet Crystal! I love the way you accented it with the tea cup in the photo! Gorgeous!!! Beading is such good therapy, isnt it?

    It’s Sunday, and I’ve done nothing but relax and catch up on my emails and my blog reading today. I’ve been so busy lately….but a good busy! I started making resin pendants and rings. Something I’ve been wanting to do for very long time. I’ve only made 3 pendants and 1 ring so far, but at least I’ve started and that’s a good thing. I’m SO ready for Spring!! I’ve got some long awaited “to do’s” on my list and with Spring “hopefully” around the corner, I can get started on them. I start physical therapy next Tuesday. The specialist Dr. wants to have my neck stretched a few times before he begins injections. Not looking forward to it at all, but I guess I’ve got to jump through the hoops and follow the rules with this new Dr. …..something I’m not good at, following rules, but I’m trying to have an open mind and play along. Besides, maybe the neck stretching might help?? Anyway, I’m just taking things as they come, as always, and I’m really enjoying my new stash of beautiful beads. *wink-wink* πŸ˜€

  9. Hi Brenda!
    Thanks for your compliments on my bracelet. πŸ™‚

    Your new resin projects sound intriguing! And, with your talent – I just know they are gorgeous!

    Sending big hugs and positive thoughts as you begin the therapy. As you say, the stretching may help – maybe even feel good – relieve tightness. I hope so! Take good care of yourself, Sweet Lady!

    So glad you are enjoying your beads! πŸ˜€
