On Saturday I got to take some jewelry
and other fun
and inspiring goodies
to my newest store,
A Joyful Cottage in Estes Park.
As I was preparing to go, I gathered
a few props to display with,
I threw in an old
at the last minute.
It's a good thing I did.
I ended up having to do a table
and wall display. I had
a piece of pattern paper, two lace doilies
and the boxes I carried thing up in!
It actually turned out pretty cute.
I've been organizing my studio
so I can get back to jewelry making.
I haven't actually made any
in several months.
It's sign season mostly.
But now I am jazzed to start playing again.
There's just something about rosaries I love.
The reminder that Jesus loves us so.
On the way home I went treasure hunting with my friend.
The one who made the display work with our
I really love the hunt.
And the find.
It wasn't until I went to take photos a few days
later I realized this pot was stamped made in Italy!
Does anyone know who these
lovely statues are? I think maybe one is St. Francis.
I am drawn to old boxes.
Why do old things bring me such joy?
The score so to speak, of something rusty or peely
I guess that says it all.
We are a treasure, with all our glorious imperfections.
Gotta love that!
