This necklace I made for my friend who really needed it yesterday. I bought the charm last weekend not really knowing why I bought it. Now I know, she needed the angel wings… Sending love today!

Sawyer and I were making one of our summer favorites yesterday… Tomato sandwiches. Yum!! Sawyer was cutting the tomatoes when he said, look Mom! Hearts!! I love that he finds beauty in everyday moments!

Vintage Buttons & Swirls

20130813-075913.jpg

I had fun with this necklace… I found this unique large button at a sale a few weeks ago and I knew it would look great in one of my designs.

I sure wish I had more to play with! I am going treasure hunting in a few days so I will be searching!

I hope your day is filled with happiness!

I have been coveting this vintage button for quite a few months… The brilliance of the sparkle is unmatched.

It is tricky to capture the brilliance in a photo…

Vintage Luggage Tag Cuff

20130509-104119.jpg

I love the contrast of the dark vintage luggage tag with the grungy silver cuff. Wire in some funky bling and the result is a fun adjustable cuff that can be worn with a multitude of finishes.

Have a happy day!

New Cuff Bracelet & The Elusive Camera Charm

Oh my gosh… I have been looking for days for a camera charm hidden in my inventory. I know I ordered it a year or do ago… In fact I have a photo of the charm within my orders placed and I remember touching it.

I have searched through my 70 plus containers of beads and elements so many times in the last couple of weeks. After a few days, I ordered another one because I did not want to keep my sweet and patient customer waiting. I figured it would turn up as soon as I placed the order, but no such luck! The charm finally arrived yesterday and I created her necklace in a snap trying to make it to the post office before closing.

Drat, but I arrived a few moments too late. This photographer’s necklace is finally enroute to it’s incredibly patient owner in Wisconsin.

I have another cuff bracelet to show you. I am building up my inventory for the upcoming Olde Depot JUNKtion. We are going to have so much fun. I hope you can join us!

20130507-130307.jpg

I believe I have created about 8 new cuffs recently.

20130507-130408.jpg

I am soon off to another track meet. This one should be a joyful experience. The sun is shining, the birds are singing and it is a happy day in Minnesota.
I hope your day is happy too! πŸ™‚ Kris

Go Pro Gone

Keegan begged for a GoPro Camera for about six months. For those of you who are not familiar, the GoPro is tagged as the world’s most versatile camera. It is an action camera, and has a helmet mount and a variety of uses including underwater.

Keegan looked at them in the stores, searched online and could not wait to get one. He mentioned it often. Right after Christmas he bought the newest version, the Go Pro Hero 3. He was so excited and started videoing immediately with his friends. They had a blast with it… Especially snowmobiling.

Less than a month later, Keegan got the opportunity to go snowmobiling with his best friend at their cabin in Northern Minnesota. He lives for snowmobiling so you can guess that it was a dream trip for Keegan!

Halfway through the weekend we found out the Keegan hit a deer carcass that was hidden under the snow, he flew off the sled and rolled it. Thankfully he was okay, no injuries. Whew! He got up, brushed off and they drove on down the trail. Can you guess where this is going?

You are correct, a little ways down the trail, they took a break and Keegan realized that his brand new “most prized possession”, his GoPro was gone. The mount had broken off his helmet and his GoPro was gone. They returned to search for it but in all the fine powder, the world’s most versatile camera must have settled down in the snow, hidden from the human eye. Despite multiple searches that weekend, they could not find it. Keegan was devastated. This teenager has some pretty tough luck. (Reference to his door slammed finger before Christmas and of course his multiple surgeries.)

Yesterday our friends were at their cabin and decided to go for a walk to see if they could find Keegan’s GoPro now that the snow had mostly melted. To say it was a long shot would be understating the obvious. They rode on miles of trails through the woods, and when the snow melts, it all looks different.

Can you even believe that my friend texted me totally AMAZED that after digging in the melting ice and snow they had found his beloved camera!! They had guessed the location!!! Keegan called me. He could not contain his excitement.

I was so happy for him! I did of course, as any Mom would, gently remind him that his camera may not work after being buried in the snow for three months. He replied, “But Mom, it was in it’s waterproof case!” Oh Keegan, I know, but three months in the frozen snow, in below zero temps laying in a ditch?? So much optimism.

Fifteen minutes later we get the news that not only does it still work, but that it has three bars remaining on the battery. What??? Now that is incredible design, isn’t it? Very few products actually do what they say they will, but when they said waterproof, they meant it. And on top of it, waterproof when a teenager places it in the case! And can we talk about the battery design? Seriously, to hold its charge in below zero weather through snow, rain, sleet & then warmer temperatures! That is downright dynamic!

It is truly an incredible story with a very happy ending!! Other than the mount, everything is in perfect working condition! What a testament to a well designed product!! Isn’t that a cool story?

Yesterday Kya and I went to a few estate sales, garage sales and a new little occasional vintage shop. Sadly we only discovered a single broken vintage necklace… But we had a fun day.

Here are a few cuffs I created the other day.

20130428-080908.jpg

They are so comfortable and are adjustable.

The bases are in copper and vintagy silver…

I hope you are having a happy Sunday! πŸ™‚ Enjoy the gorgeous weather!!
