|Johnny Belle Depp: AKA Johnny Valentine|
After I opened everything from Holly, I had tissue papers and that pretty cellophane with hearts strewn on my bed. Johnny loves paper! She likes to make a little nest right in the middle of it all. Which she did! After I cleaned the papers away (so I could get into bed myself), she decided to try out the mailing box with cellophane still in it. Doesn't she look cute? She thinks she's a Valentine Kitty! LOL
|A good fit|
I just had to take a few photos of her while she was nestled in that box. She was so relaxed and just looking around from her Valentine beddy.
|You can kind of see her blue eyes|
So there she is, my little kitty girl enjoying the Valentine box! She says "Purrrr-thanks Holly!"
I added a little ribbon to the sweet Cutie Pie Cottage card Holly sent. This way I can hang it on my wall, which I did. It's hanging with the pretty card that Elizabeth had sent with Creative Breathing on it. It gives me great pleasure to remember my bloggy friends! I do have my garland hung across the window and I pinned a few of the vintage Valentines I received along it with teensy red clothespins. It is just too bright to take pictures of it. I took a couple, but you couldn't see what it really looks like. I will try again later on!
I also wanted to show just a little bit of some of the vintage jewelry I have. I have a lot of my mummy's, a few pieces that were my grandmother's, and a few of mine.
|Beads, bangles, bracelets|
|The green & black bracelet was my Grandmother's|
|Those colored beads are millefiori glass beads my MIL got|
for me when she went to Italy many moons ago.
|Some pieces that were in mummy's jewelry box|
|Necklace from Holly is added to these lovelies|
|Those colored seed beads were mine|
The softly colored seed (real) beads were mine in high school!! It's a very long strand, usually doubled and still long. Sometimes a knot was tied in it. I wore those beads constantly. I had a favorite pair of majenta flair leg jeans (the type with NO pockets or loops or stitching or belt) that fit tightly and zipped up the back. They looked good (back when I was a thin young thing!) and I felt good wearing them. I wore a pink poor boy top with them and those swinging beads! Ooh Mama - I was ready for anything! Ha Ha I think I wore those britches out. The beads I was always careful with, I guess that's why I still have them. For the longest time I had a cute real mini acorn necklace that my friend and I had strung back during school days in the 60's. I really don't know what happened to that, though. In high school I liked to wear weird stuff. I always loved earrings then. That was my thing. The weirder, the better! I wore my dad's dogtags for earrings. I still have them hanging on the corner of my mirror. I made earrings out of the wire that I pulled out of some of my brush rollers and made earrings out of that, too!! I had some kind of geological rocks that I wore. To this day, I have been known to wear two different earrings for fun. I think that's why I loved jewelry-making when I got into it not all that long ago. I just am not really in that mode now. But I do like to combine beads and jewelry findings into some of the crafts I currently make.
You all know by now how much I l.o.v.e. craft supplies. Some time I will do a post on gadgets!!! But that's another day!!!
Have a wonderful weekend!!!
