Long time, no blog

Hello. Not sure anyone is still checking my blog as it has been so neglected lately. I have been periodically posting on my A Thing for Roses Facebook page, so if you haven’t already, and want to, go on over and like me.

We had a couple weeks of really rainy weather up here in the PNW. I don’t do much when that happens, with maybe the exception of catching up on all my tv shows and movies I’ve wanted to watch. I have done a little crafting.

Inspired by my good friend Mitzi, who made the most adorable vintage bling Christmas trees (two of which I had to buy, aren’t they so cute?)

here are a couple I made.

Also, after making several (I lost count how many) vintage bling button bracelets to sell, I finally made one to keep for me.

I used all my favorite buttons. Love that it is super blingy and am looking forward to wearing it during the holidays.

I also spent a little time putting together some new/vintage earrings. Love this super simple craft.

We had a lovely Thanksgiving with my girl home from college and I haven’t even begun to think much about decorating for Christmas yet, but I just couldn’t resist bringing this little cutie home from my last visit to Monticello.

So that’s about it. Heading over to Monticello tomorrow to help Mitzi move into the front window and fluff my space a bit. I’m super excited to see what she comes up with.

Hi Lisa, Those bling trees are sure nice! And your bracelet is to die for. I'm going to have to get over to Monticello to go shopping.

Hey girlie! My SIL messaged me the other day and sent me pictures of some jewelry ornaments that she bought when they visited Portland recently. I asked her if she went to STARS (and told her about you) and she told me that the ornaments came from STARS. (She lives in Vegas). Then today she told me that you posted about MITZI ...so I am sitting here sick and trying not to laugh too much at how cute the connections are here. Small world we live in, ain't it? :)

Love to you and yours and GET BUSY decorting girl! If you're like me, I did so much at the stores, I am burned out to do much around the house.

LOVE all of the bling trees!!!
