Rusty Delight: Amazing Gifts

The other day I received an amazing gift.

The gift arrived to me, and I was so excited to open the box…

In Tucson, my friend Patti, Liz, Linda, Katie and I enjoyed dinner with Liz’s father and fun-loving wife. Liz encouraged me to show her father some of my funky creations with unusual elements like water faucet handles and vintage hinges.

As Liz expected, her sweet father was very intrigued… He started telling us about some trunks that he rescued the hardware from over 50 years ago. He stored them and moved them for over 50 years across many states… He was excited to dig them out and share them with me!!! Can you imagine my delight when the box showed up in my mailbox?

This rusty delight was such a beautiful gift to me…. for one thing, this gentleman cared enough to keep them with him for so long and the immense honor I feel that he would share them with me after all of this time. I am so excited to work these items into some unique jewelry and decor! I am very touched by his gift and sweet Liz for sending them to me… Thank you!!

Here are a few necklaces still available that I posted on Facebook yesterday. Comment or email me if you are interested (cherishdesigns@live,com).

Treasure Hunting!

Fun adventures…

For a few years, I have been wanting to go to a huge antique sale about 3 hours away… our busy schedules have never allowed it before. So it was with a joyful heart that my husband, my daughter and I woke up at 5:30 to get a 6am start to a very fun road trip. I am so thankful to have amazing support from my husband, I am certain it is not what he would have chosen to do on a sweltering hot Friday, but I am grateful for his support, help, hauling and chauffer services. Both he and my daughter were so patient, in fact they were super help digging for treasure too!

There were approximately 1200 antique booths and 400 vendors that take over this small Minnesota town. We arrived around 9 am and left at about 4:00 pm after a day of endurance and treasure hunting. I am prettys sure I didn’t even hit half of the vendors! Next year I will need more than one day there!

This is a photo of a new display that we bought. We decided it would be pretty cool to add height to my display and hang my jewelry from it. It did not fit in our vehicle… so here is a photo of Kya helping on top of the truck!

Here is a photo of not even half of my loot. My hands are itching to create!

I was able to create all the way there and all the way home too, so pretty close to 6 hours of creating added to the joy of my day. I was contemplating going alone, but am so thankful for Tom and Kya. Kya actually discovered one of my very favorite finds. I made a necklace out of it right away!

And then I paired it with one of my favorite keys that I found… can you “I Spy” it in my loot? Here they are together.

I will post more photos of some of my other creations and finds very soon!

Have an amazing day! Kris
