Home Again - White Wednesday

I'm home again from my mid-west adventures.  I L-O-V-E the mid-west!  Was born and raised in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  My husband is from Wisconsin and we lived the majority of our lives together in Minnesota.  Most of our family lives in the mid-west.  I'm risking shocking or even offending die hard Texans, but Texas is just okay.  I mean this is where my home is now, but my heart longs to be in the mid-west!  We'll get back there someday.  

When someone asks me where I'm from, this is how I usually answer.   
"Well, we're living in Texas now, but I'm from Upper Michigan."

Anyway, now that I'm "home", I want to catch up on my blogging world.  So here's a few quick White Wednesday pictures.  Get on over to Kathleen's Faded Charms blog and check out all the amazing White Wednesday links!

This is an amazing old bird house we saw at Oronoco Gold Rush.  If I had room to haul it, display it, money to buy it, if I didn't think my Mr. Wonderful would kill me if I brought this into the house, it would have been mine!  Ya, I live in a dream world.

This is a picture has some of my necklaces.  My Illinois sister wanted to take some pictures outside at her house and she liked the juxtaposition of the jewels against the rustic finish of the fountain.  We both love that word, juxtaposition.  Try it, juxtaposition.  Sorry, but some words are just fun to say.  Plus, she loves dappled sunshine.  That's another fun word, dappled!

Here's another necklace, I came across this, looking for white pictures.  I made this to sell.  I love it but would never wear it.  Is that weird?  Does anyone else ever make stuff they think is cool just not something they would have for themselves?  Just wondering..... 


  1. Love the birdhouse, what a cool piece. The necklaces on the cherubs is such a cool picture, and the one you made with the white beads is gorgeous. You should wear it. It is lovely. Hugs, Marty

  2. Fun Post ~ I have lived My entire Life (except for 5 months in Georgia) In Michigan, My Mom & Grandma came from the tip top of The UP, but I from the suburbs of Detroit (Dearborn) I Long to live somewhere else, By the Ocean, In the Mountains, Someplace where the Temp is 58-75 degrees Year Round~ Haven't found it yet, since Family is in Michigan, I Guess I will Stay ~ Love the Juxtapostion, I Love to say the word "Funky" My Kids Hate it when I do, I think it is a Fun Word, Like Zany.....
    Guess I'm just Odd ~ Love the Whites, Love the Necklace.... Great W.W. Post~
    Have a Wonderful Week

  3. I think that house is so cool-I would have wanted it too!

  4. Love the birdhouse and I would have been so tempted but my husband would have thought I was crazy. I'm born and raised in Minnesota, we're starting on a home in Wyoming (state) and I can't wait to move! We've visited the UP several times and I like it up there especially the Copper Harbor area. Enjoyed your blog....

  5. Love your pictures and all your lovely jewelry. I think I want that birdhouse!! I would wear most of the jewelry I make except for the bigger, bolder, chunkier pieces; they'd be wearing me. It's so hard sometimes to let some of the pieces go....can't wear it all though.
    You do beautiful work:-)

  6. I can see you made a whirlwind trip, but glad you at least stopped by my booth. I do hope you come by Zapp. Maybe see you soon, T

  7. S, Isn't it funny what your eye catches in the photos. I believe it's still at the Antique Co. Mall if you are still interested.
