are happening over at the Weinberg household..
Firstly, tonight begins Passover so we'll be off to the first Seder (The feast commemorating the exodus of the Jews from Egypt, celebrated on the first two nights of Passover.) in a few hours and will blog on that tomorrow or Sunday, but wanted to fill you in on other stuff.
You might recall.....(or not !) that I'd been looking for 'just the right tree branches' for an idea for the house....The Lenster, with his sharp eyes, was able to find us the exact white birch I was hoping for. He spotted them in a vacant lot and, with saw in hand, took exactly what he thought were the right ones.
I am over the moon ! We ae very big into all these natural looking 'accessories'.
and, you'll also notice the ingenious planters...upside down
specially designed so nothing drips or falls out
and...YES...they have birds on them...PERFECTO !!
the new DYLUSION Dyes from Ranger and designer Dyan Reaveley and stencils from The Crafters Workshop
I ordered some 2X2 canvases online and decided to try the dyes directly on them...then see if I could turn it into jewelry
they are fabulous on canvas..so..that means they will also be fabulous on Claudines Sticky Back Canvas too.
Used Tims little screw eyes on the sides...
and some of Tims gears
so..whaad'ya think...should I sell it on ETSY ???
I do plan to sell this gem..or should I say lots of gems. This is all the rage now...contemporary yet vintage style lucite for summer.
I love "The Beadin' Path" (where I bought these great beads) ..I discovered them at the Whole Bead show in NYC and all I want to do is make a trip to their Freeport Maine store !
there are so many fabulous beads used in this necklace
To those of you celebrating either Easter or Passover...may it be a wonderful blessed holiday for you.
Check back in a day or two !!
