A blogger that I follow, (she has goats and they are the cutest,) has started a weekly scavenger hunt with pictures. I have been wanting to get in, but with the tax season, I just didn't have a chance.

But now I can! Ms Teresa from Eden Hills posted the three hunt items on her side bar on her web page. 1. Starts with R, 2. Favorite, and 3. Texture.

1st was Starts with R

I present my Rose Of Sharon. It is from the back door area at my parents house. I dug it up after they passed. The other day it was full of white blossoms..but today just a few. This is the first year we have really seen it bloom.

2nd is Favorite..and that was hard. My husband has been working on the yard and it is looking good. We have had some of our Amaryllis come up and I do love them. 


And these orange beauties are some Double Bloom Lilies we bought at Walmart. They really glow in the sun.

3rd was texture. That one kind of got me but I went through my pictures and found this textured butterfly in some jewelry that I got for a challenge.

So there you have it. Fridays Hunt. You can hop to her web site and see more entries and look at her goats. They are so cute and fun. She also sells goat soap and other things!  Her name is Teresa and her site is Eden Hills.

Til Next time!!!!!

Ceramic Blog & Hop 2016

Well it is that time again! Lisa Lodge of A Grateful Artist has created another wonderful challenge and hop.  When I signed up I figured I had lots of time....silly me...I prepare taxes (have you done yours yet??) so NO I didn't have lots of time...but I was able to create something. I do think I may change a couple of things, but AFTER tax season is over and I can concentrate!

So without further ado, since I am sooo ready for is what Lisa sent me:

Awesome!!!! BUT I felt it needed some more punch! So I went to the color wheel to see what colors would go with green and orange...and of favorite color - purple! So I went through every purple bead I had, then decided I needed to get some more.

This is what I came up with: (excuse the black. I didn't realize it would show through like that)

I had the green leaf beads so since she sent silver ones and the ceramic pendant was a leaf, I decided to use them. The pendant is orange,. I think I may have been to close with the flash. But you can see the purple in there.

Here is a close up of the clasp and you can see the leaf beads better in the earrings.

Thank you Lisa for another great challenge. I do love participating!  If you want to see more eye candy hop over to her blog for a list of the participants! That is A Grateful Artist.

Have fun ya all...I am going to bed!!

Keep on Beading!
