God's Creation & Mine

Today I am using some of God's art work and tossing in two necklaces that I made some time back.
These flowers are on one of the two camellia bushes we have in our yard. The bushes have really been put through it this year with all of the really cold weather we have had. They will soon be gone. There are so many things blooming here right now, wisteria, azalea, dogwood and just this week the wild flowers along the roadside are making a show. I never cease to be amazed at all of the beauty around us. Whether it be flowers, birds, waters, mountains, there is just so much to be thankful for. Thank you God, you truly are an artist.
These two necklaces were made from some very old broken strands that I had saved over the years. The earrings were made to go with either one. All of the beads are glass and crystal. You might be able to see them better if you click on them. Of course my favorite is the one with the flower in the center. It seems that when I start a project, if I really like it, I will run with it and make several of whatever it is. At the same time I made these I made four others. I will try to share them later.
Yesterday was yard work and cleaning out gutters, today was errand day, so I was gone most of the day, that leaves just three days till I will be leaving for the Keys to go spend a week with two of the most precious people in my world, my youngest daughter and granddaughter. Hopefully I will get back to you before I leave. BE BLESSED and enjoy every moment you are given.

Thanks for dropping by my blog, I have visited you before but not made a comment. I love your pictures of your camelia bush, we have three, and although it is now autumn (fall) over here in Australia mine is flowering slowly at the moment, I will have them in full bloom very soon as the buds are nice and fat.

My hot pink camelia is just starting to bloom...the first sign of spring in my yard along with the crocuses.
You are so right, we have so much to be thankful for and God is the King of Art that's for sure!
I didn't know you made jewelry too...those are really pretty. I love making new from old.
Have a great time down in the Keys!!!

Hello Gail, My Baxter thanks you for visiting...he is his own boss.
I love your beautiful flowers. We are just getting started here with blooms. My apricot tree has the most beautiful white flowers, and soon they will be gone. We have had some frost, so I don't know if we will have fruit.
I love finding you on my site....have a wonderful spring...Mary
