Five little blue beads were wired together with a bigger red coral bead to make this jeweled flower. I strung it on a brown leather cord. Also looks great on a leather cuff bracelet (see Orange Leather Cuff Bracelet). No watering needed!

Take one vintage crazy quilt. Add a leopard ribbon handle. Finish with a vintage rhinestone brooch and voila! You have a smashing little evening purse. I've gotten so many compliments on this little number. I made several in varying shapes and sizes until I ran out of crazy quilt. Now I'm search of another with wild and crazy patterns, which is not so easy to find.
Check out another post for more crazy quilt ideas!

Christmas may be behind us but there's still a little time left to set a simple holiday table. Perhaps for New Year's Eve? This was our table a few years ago and I love the contrast of the rich red walls and table accents against the dark furniture. A few well-placed pops of color go a long way towards adding a festive feel to any place setting.

This has to be my favorite necklace of all the ones I've made. I used vintage flower clip-on earrings wired together as a pendant and then a double strand of turquoise. It simply goes with everything!
