Relaxing Day Making Wind Chimes

The Sweet Shoppe Princess and The Cheerleader

I can't believe it has been a week since I have posted last.  Lots of things going on around here. Youngest daughter tried out for cheerleading this past week.  Yes,  I am happy to say she made the squad.  We had a special young friend turn 6.  She had a "Sweet Shoppe" birthday party.  Decorations were very cute and lots of candy for the youngsters.  I had decorated a pair of flip-flops and  made a journal with removable decorated cover for her.  This little princess' mother  has a blog you can read it here .   Her mother also taught me that little trick with the link.  Thanks Kell.

I spent most of the day working on some orders for Wind Chimes. My FIL had given me some brass ear tags they use on cattle.  I believe now they use plastic.  I put one of the ear tags in this chime with some pottery shards that had been dug up on our property. 

For the next one it was requested I use some seashells.  Used some amber colored stained glass and some glass beads as well.  I made several others and spent most of the day doing them.  Nice to have a slow paced day.

Paid a visit to the cemetery this weekend as well.  I always enjoy visiting a cemetery, such a peaceful and thought provoking place.  We were mindful of all that gave so much of us and for our freedom.  Those that have gone on to a better place and are always held close to our hearts.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend.

Love the wind chimes my friend! Sooo SWEET!

Now...I went back in and corrected my post about the sewing machine. I uploaded the original receipt if you want to go and look at it. It was from 1886 not 1898. I was reading it upside down!

Isn't it fab?

Thanks for visiting. Always sooo special to have you.

Love, Rebcca
