Back in February, when life was much quieter, I thought it might be fun to go to a craft show out of state. The Roseland Cottage Fine Art and Craft Festival caught my eye with the thoughts of fall color dancing in my head and the church dinner scheduled on Saturday night. Sounded ideal. And I hope it will be. I have been working quite hard to bump up my stock and even obtained a Connecticut tax number. Doing new shows is a bit like dating, although I haven't done that for years, you don't really quite know what you are getting into. But nothing ventured nothing gained. So I am almost ready to pack the car! On my way to Connecicut!

A friend recently asked me to make earrings for her college friends for an upcoming mini reunion. As it happens, I went to the same college and graduated 4 years before them so there was no overlap. However, I knew the college colors well: affectionately known as mud and blood (brown and maroon). Here are the earrings I created for the women.

A good friend of mine gave me some vintage typewriter keys in the fall. It has taken a while for me to find the time to play with them and have them whisper designs to me. I put them on my bench and with a bunch of other materials for lots of visual stimuli. I cut some copper pieces out and made prongs to capture the keys, Yes, there is a spring in the picture along with brass pieces and steel jump rings
I added some brass square tubing, antiques brass chain, vintage tin from a baking pan, Monopoly pieces and a stone with a natural hole through it and these are the results:
