Vintage Gypsy Jewelry Shoot

I was out in the beautiful sunshine today and took some photos of my jewelry draped around a vintage prom dress. I thought it would be a fun gypsy look.




I hope you enjoyed my photos. It thought it would be something a little different and fun!

I hope you all have a great week!

New Goodies Coming Soon and A Few Changes

 I also want to give a warm felt Thank You to Nellie at McCarthy Designs for awarding me with my first blogger award. Thank you so much Nellie for this honor!
Check out Nellie's blog  McCarthy Designs.
You'll love it! 



 So as a recipient of this lovely award, I must share 7 things about myself. This will be hard because I'm an extremely private person, but here goes.

1} I am a Licensed Vocational Nurse by trade, but I decided to be a stay-at-home mom for my boys.
2} My dream is to have my own antique shop someday. My life would be fulfilled if that ever came true!
3} My favorite T.V. show of all time is, {don't laugh} Murder She Wrote. I actually have the first four seasons on DVD.I know most of the episodes by heart!
4}  I love to write. I am actually working on several different drafts of a book I hope to someday publish. Or at least finish.
5} I was born in the South and I love anything fattening or fried. Can't help it, it comes from my roots!
6} I have two beautiful boys and I actually was never expected to be able to have children. My first one finally came along after my husband and I were married for 10 years.
7}I have two different colored eyes! Truly!! One is blue and the other is brown. I was born with it.

Okay, that's it. I hope you enjoyed learning a little more about me.
Take care.

"I'm closing my eyes!"

Kristin from Faded Prairie.
Congratulations Kristin!!!

 I wanted so much to give everyone something. Everyone has been so sweet and supportive of my Jewelry designs and both of my blogs since I first began. Everyone who had joined my blog from the very beginning was entered in the giveaway drawing. Thank you for all of your lovely comments and for all of the inspiration that you all give to me each and everyday. This blogging community is amazing and I have never known such lovely supporting women in all of my life.

 Don't worry, if you didn't win today, I will be hosting another giveaway soon. 
Have a wonderful Oscar day and a fabulous week!!
Blessings,
Melinda

*(The original winner of the giveaway graciously declined the offer because she wanted someone else to enjoy the necklace. In her line of work she is unable to wear jewelry, so she wanted to give someone else a chance who would enjoy and use the piece more often.
So another name was chosen for the giveaway. Thank you to the original winner for your  thoughtfulness. )
