Falling Leaves

The leaves continue to fall and the trees are not bare yet…


I have the coolest funky leaf I was playing with and am thrilled by the textures I was able to create.


The brass base was an old vintage leaf I bought at the Junk Bonanza… I listed the necklace in my etsy shop here.


Have a wonderful day!

Fall Colors

I love fall and this creation reminds me of the beautiful fall creations surrounding is.


The leaves have turned and the oranges, greens and gold are so joyful.

May you have a colorful and beautiful day!

Feeling Fallish

Oh, there is a chill in the air. We had quite a bit of rainfall last night and today and it is feeling like fall.

Today I have resorted to boots. Bye, bye flip flops.


The leaves have started to show their beautiful colors. This design was inspired by fall. The vintage copper leaf has a gorgeous patina.


I hope you are enjoying the beautiful fall colors!
Have a great day!

Can You Slow Down A Speeding Train?


Is there a way to slow down a speeding train? That’s what it feels like we are on right now…


Before we know it, fall will have raced it’s way here and we will be knee deep in schedules, school and activities!

I love summer…

I am just not mentally ready for the train to arrive at the station..

Apply brakes! If only we could!

I guess our next best option is to enjoy the time left and embrace the moment!


Enjoy your precious day! 🙂 Kris

Here are a few snaps I took of my glorious latte from yesterday at Bloom!

Mmmm, at this point I’m drooling!


I can barely take the anticipation… A large skinny vanilla latte!

I normally skip the whip, but it is so much prettier so I suffered through it! Lol

And I leave you with a photo of one of Sawyer’s Art Camp Projects… So adorable!

May you enjoy the beautiful fall Friday and I hope it’s a day of accomplishment for all of us! 🙂 Kris

Splendid Glory, Simple Joys

I had the pleasure of creating a custom order with some family treasures… Two brooches and a pair of earrings, wish I had taken a before photo. Here are the afters.

An amazingly beautiful vintage pink brooch upcycled into a new trendy necklace.

My clients name starts with an S and amazingly I discovered that the earrings when stacked, create an S, it is even more fitting that she works in a school with children. Can you see the S, it wraps around the focal gems.

20110925-074410.jpg And the final piece in the set, the matching brooch to the earrings, I created a smaller pendant.

The photo above is a photo of a trio of bridesmaid necklaces that I had the honor of creating for a special bride & groom. I realized on the way to deliver them that I forgot to photograph the finished necklaces, 5 in total. So I used one of my favorite canvases of late, the beautiful sky. I love the sun shining through the crystals.

20110925-075329.jpg As I walk out of the roller rink after dropping our daughter off at a birthday party, I see our 13 year old son Keegan, poised on the top of our vehicle begging my husband to drive forward, “I have always wanted to ride up here!” He begged. I convinced Tom to drive forward a few feet (it didn’t take much convincing) and the result was a huge grin from the inside out! Such simple joys.

20110925-075951.jpg And finally, a photo filled with amazing color of the beautiful fall day in Minnesota. Such splendid glory! I hope your day is filled with splendid beauty and simple joys!
