Me...well I am getting really tired of winter and all the SNOW~
I am just really dreaming of spring!!
After I took down all my Christmas decorations I thought I would at least bring a bit of spring happiness to my fireplace mantel!!
It's ok to be super beachy in the middle of January, right!?!?!?!
I want to get some of those faux blooming branches but I didn't feel like leaving the house...so I just used whatever I already had on hand!!
Turned out pretty cute, I think:)
I wish I could take better photos but our living room is a VERY dark room...it's one of those 1970's sunken living rooms with no windows:(
But it is a pretty cozy room in the winter! Someday I would like to add skylight windows to brighten it up .... for now i'll just appreciate it as it is!
I'll probably change the mantel up just as soon as I go out and about but for now...I like it:) And I didn't have to buy a single thing! Love that!
And well....you know how I feel about all things turquoise!! I think the mantle kind of reflects the outfit I wore out the other evening...heehee:)
Oh and I thought I would keep you up to date on Simple Daisy happenings!!!
I have been working on new designs....still trying to get the soldering just perfect...but stay tuned for some soldered designs!!!
And thank you for giving me such wonderful suggestions the other day!!!
I have sprinkled in some stone choices! I am still undecided about Citrine....and I do have pearls but forgot to add them into this photo! Anywho...I think these choices give you just a bit of variety...in case....gasp....you don't like blue!!! But I think the choice still clearly reflect my style!!
Do you like the choices!?!?!?!!?
And don't forget the chain lengths are also customizable. Basically...it's almost like a build your very own happy necklace:):):)
And as I was tinkering the other day....I just for the fun of it looked up the meanings of the stones I chose and I L.O.V.E. the meanings!! I think I should include them in my descriptions! I found the stone meanings here.....Kind of fun even if you don't really believe in that kind of stuff:)
