Amazing Creatures!!!

So a few days ago I was out taking some photos while the sun was setting. I just love the light the sun casts on everything as it's setting over the horizon. Sometimes it casts a gold tone, a pink tone or even orange. It just depends on what the climate may be that day. I never get tired of the sunsets here. Each one is unique.

While taking some shots of some wildflowers in our back yard I spotted this little hummingbird zipping around sipping nectar from the flowers. They just love these flowers. Hummingbirds amaze me in how they can fly so fast and stop on a dime. I've been outside before and had one zip right past my head or stop right in front of my face and just hover there. They are so amazing to watch.

New Hobby!!! :)

So awhile back I purchased this awesome memory bracelet from a wonderful seller on Etsy by the name of artspell. The bracelet quickly turned into one of my favorites to wear. I wondered how hard it would be to make these for myself so I gave it a try. Here is one of the first ones I made. What do you think? It kind of reminds me of a sea turtle....

Beautiful & Special

So last weekend my hubby and I had two weddings to go to. A few months before the wedding I decided to buy a new dress since I have not for some time. I was dreading the venture as looking for a dress is not always fun. But to my surprise I found something right away and to make it even better it was on sale. I also found a cute shrug to go over it. Now the hardest part was finding cute shoes to go with my outfit. So within the next few days the search was on. It did not take long and I found the perfect shoes too! Now the last step to complete my outfit was the jewelry.

Since I have found Etsy shopping for jewelry anywhere else just does not compare! I just don't find much in the stores anymore so I did not even bother. Then I thought to myself....I should just see if my sister could make something to tie everything together. So I showed her my outfit and she said she had the perfect thing in mind to go with it.

The thing that made this jewelry special was that the beads all came from different jewelry that my grammie had. Here is the awesome necklace that my sister made along with the dress and shrug I wore. It also had a matching bracelet as well. Thanks sis!!!
