Making jewelry today

Hi all. Sometimes I need to give my brain something to do besides hook. Don't get me wrong, I am obsessed with hooking. But today I decided to make jewelry. I made earrings...and earrings....more earrings,....some necklaces too!

I am just about finished with the hooking project for my front door. But I remembered that in May I hooked a mat for the fourth of July for the front door! So that's up now and I can finish the other one for the rest of the summer.

Yes, my front door is Bright blue! The outside is red stucco with a khaki trim. Just like the one I'm hooking above!! The house was white when we got married. Not for long though. Anyone who knows me knows I couldn't live in a white house. I LOVE COLOR!! When we redid the kitchen the walls were done in a brick red. Then last summer I decided they needed to be turquoise. Well that turned out bright blue, about like the front door. So last week I repainted it the original Boticelli Red. Marvolous dahling....I'll show pictures next time.

Let the beauty we love be what we do.

'Til next time,

Hi Sherri!

I was driving down Jefferson this morning, and low and behold, thought I saw what was maybe your house. that I've seen what you hooked for the door.....I know it's your house. How cute! Also, please use the birdcage idea! I finally can see all my earrings at once, and am wearing pairs I forgot I had! Hope to see you Wednesday!

Thanks, Dulcy. For those of you that may not be familiar with Dulcy's she had the greatest idea of using an old birdcage as an earring holder. She hung the earrings on every horizontal bar!!! CUTE!!
