Something different.....Vintage Chic!

I finally got my hands on a vintage dictionary thanks to my ex-neighbor and current friend..Nancy!
There are some really appealing pictures, letters and words that can be used in many different mediums.
I choose aged brass to go with the vintage style.
The paper is original and not copied so everything is one of a kind!

These are the initials rings...they are going to be limited as I only have so many of the letters in my book. These should not get wet so take them off before washing hands.
The size is adjustable and should fit just about everyone!

The earrings are just the right size and very comfy to wear..I'm going to have fun words that go together. If you have any requests I will do my best to make a set up for you!

These are the pictures..there are some you would expect and some really unusal ones. I applied them to wood discs..not sure yet if I'm going to make them pendants, magnets or tacks. Any suggestions or preferences ? I would love to hear!
Fun and Flirty ring!
And here are the pendants..and again not sure if I am going to list them as is or with a chain ...I am trying to keep things simple as "my helper" who is 3 is still insisting on "helping" so I may just list them as is more for jewelers to buy for there designs.

At last a new post!

Not sure if anyone stills looks at my blog or not..but here I am!
These are a few bracelets I made...only one is available for sale. Susie Q is named for the girl who bought it in my hair salon before I got it listed on Etsy and I kept Earth Rocks because...I loved it :)

Sterling Silver is still sky high in price so I have not bought any wire lately to make the wire wrapped rings...I might get some soon but they will have a price increase so I am still undecided.
I do have some plans for a vintage dictionary I have...using the pictures and words for some vintage-y pendants, earrings, hairpins and rings! Just a teaser for whats to come ;)

Earth Rocks

Susie Q
And my little Carter boy is thriving!
He is 3 now and doing all sorts of things! I love the 3's.. They can be trysome for sure but I love seeing the person he is unfolding each day.
As for creative outlet has switched from beads to scrapbooking and tweeking my house...The more things I do.. I am finally bonding with this new house and it's feeling like home.
And for some reason I want to visit Maine ..I have for quite some time but lateley its been intense, so since we can't just pick up and go (not a trip that would thrill a 3 year old)...I have been reading fiction books set there...

I don't know my deal is.. maybe its just the heat~
