Friday Favorites – Planet Raspberry


smileywink Sorry about the silly title for this week’s Friday Favorites… but I’m in a silly mood!

In my defense though, the lampwork beads do have rings around them – rather like a “planet”, and the color here is definitely a “raspberry” pink.


As I was making these earrings, it occurred to me that they’d be gorgeous for winter. First of all, the white is a true “winter white”, and then there’s the raspberry, which is such a deliciously cool color.

So what’s up for your weekend?

Hope you’re planning a little fun along with those chores!!

tinypumpkinWe should all follow Carol’s lead and choose our pumpkins while the selection is still good.

Well . . . take good care, and I’ll see ya back here on Monday for a new giveaway and new questions. 😀


Giveaway – Raspberry Ice Earrings

Welcome to the weekly giveaway!

Is it June already? 😉

The 4th of July will be here before we know it!

I’m behind on replying to your comments. I wish I could answer every one of them, every single week, but I run out of time. Please know that all of them make me smile!!! Thanks again for stopping by often. I’m truly fortunate to have such a wonderful group of readers. 🙂

If you should ever have a question that needs a quick reply, please email me using the “Contact Us” link located on the right side of this page. I do answer emails promptly.

This week’s giveaway is a bold and flirty pair of dangle earrings – perfect for the lady who doesn’t mind a little extra attention!


These “Raspberry Ice” Earrings feature pretty Vintage Moonglow Lucite oval beads in a mouth-watering shade of raspberry! I’ve accented them with faceted Czech Glass elongated ovals and tiny silver Swarovski Crystals. Lacey silver plated bead caps add a touch of elegance.

Measurements: approximately 2-3/8″ long – including the sterling silver earwires.
