Last weekend, The Man and I rose early to hit the only three yard sales in our small little town. The first two were very disappointing however...the third one was a charm!
I hit the mother load of rhinestones!!! It's not that I wear them of course, but I'm always on the lookout for them as they are perfect to use in mixed media art.
And...since I have MANY friends who love to create mixed media art AND have birthdays this month, have had birthdays last month and will have birthdays next month, (whew I got a lot of friends!) I thought of them too as I was yard sale shopping!!!
Before you think I'm all sweet and nice, the watch piece above is for ME! I do tend to be a greedy hoarder when it comes to my favorite pieces! ;)
I managed to put this gift in the mail today. It's headed for California.
I'm late on my May birthdays, my June birthdays, and my July birthdays and even on my last November birthdays!!! But I think I'm forgiven because those who really love me know that I'm ALWAYS late ;)
So I'm going to share some of my new rhinestone finds with a FaBuLouS friend of mine whom I know will put these shiny treats to good use.
Even when she's known to bedeck herself with them on occasion, I can also imagine what beautiful pieces of art she will embellish with these too!!!!
Heck, this is HER (late) Birthday Present from me so I guess she can do whatever she wishes with her new jewels!!!!
'Nuff said before I show & tell everything! We gotta leave some sort of surprise, don't we???
