A Rose Quartz Necklace and Rhody Art

Rose Quartz Necklace
It has been ages since I made a necklace using a chandelier finding for the focal piece. They always look so feminine! This rose quartz beauty is available at Etsy.

Rhody Art
I met Lin of Rhody Art through an Etsy New England team. Her collages and mixed media work always brought a smile to my face and I finally decided to treat myself!

I chose "Dreamer" since she suits me. I have all sorts of dreams that I intend to make happen (some are impossible unless I hit the lottery).
I also received this whimsical bookmark which is very much Lin's style! The woman's quote reads "she wished he'd just leave". Too funny.
She pairs vintage prints with various other materials to create one of a kind pieces. I love this one:
Each listing has a humorous description. "Samantha has been dating her lover Samuel for several years. He's just asked her to marry him but it means a move to Nepal. She hates cold weather and mountains. In addition, her parents have never approved of the relationship. She loves him madly though--what on earth is she going to do?"

Lin also makes greeting cards like this one which is perfect for your naughty friend. 
"In this whimsical greeting, Candace looks very sweet but behind that angelic exterior is a devil may care, adventurous young woman. She won't tell anyone what she's up to--she'll keep them guessing."

Fridge magnets will give you a chuckle each day.
"Dagobert is always frustrated by his sweetheart's refusal to douse herself in Arrid Extra Dry. It's been a losing battle so far."

Christmas will be here before we know it!
"No one wants coal in their stocking at Christmas and this bad boy has the bad luck of always getting some. Poor man."

I love the unexpected statements.
"Bruno has always wanted to be a professional wrestler. But he's not interested in the WWE or clownish professional wrestlers. He wants to do greco-roman wrestling and doesn't understand why it isn't more popular."

This is one of my favorites:
"One mustn't ask what Freda and Jonathan have been up to. Perhaps they had a bit too much fun at a party. In any event, as they stagger home Jonathan helps Freda toddle along. They support each other, just as they promised to do when they married years ago."

I hope you have enjoyed this glimpse of Rhody Art. Next time you are looking for something whimsical for yourself or someone else, check out Rhody Art on Etsy. Like on Facebook.
