New Lovelies

Here are two new pieces... This is a soldered charm I just made for a customer! It's 1" in diameter. I think it turned out nice and clear. "Time on my hands" I made by photocopying an old watch face then adding the hour hand myself. Soldering it up and presto a fab vintage watch face! I love diamonds and gold... don't get me wrong..but unique silver jewelry pieces really make me pause....
Here is a new collage I am working on. It's not done, I still have some elements to add. I was just looking how the border turned out and I think I might just have to add it to the piece! 'Home Sweet Home' is what I'm calling it. If the house was a little smaller...it could be ours! What makes a Home to you? Is it the perfect furniture? How about the smell that brings back a fond memory?
At our house, it's obvious to us...us...DH...me...#1...#2...#3...and Shelby...but the thought that we can be ourselves in our home. Uniqueness is what DH and I want to instill in the boys. Stand up for what you believe in! "Uhhmm yeah, there is a God!" "Yes... God has a Son... Jesus..."
Home should be where you can be at peace! Surround yourself with beautiful things that inspire you.. the little things... Like my silly antique door knob picture holders...Or my painted chimney in the master bedroom...(oops, haven't shown ya that yet)...
My point? Take time out and pause...Which I have been guilty of NOT doing lately... My pause right now, my home...Inspiration at it's finest! What is yours?...
Hope everyone is having a great week!

I think they're beautiful! And I really like the idea of putting 'Home Sweet Home' around the border.

I love the clock charm to pieces!
Yes I think the family makes the home...without them it would just be a house. Now show us that chimney :)
