So I made myself this holiday necklace. Certain gaudy things attract my attention.
This poinsettia is one of them. It is from a broken brooch that belonged to my late great aunt. It has been sitting around for years now and I finally brought it back to life! The velvet choker is also upcycled from some old costume jewelry piece my mom had given me back a few years ago.
Jim built me a computer! Yes, he has this special skill. These are the bits and pieces needed to do so.
It's not pretty but it costs way less than going to the store and buying a name brand PC. This will also last 10-15 years with components being upgraded as needed which is another huge money saver since brand name PCs don't last that long.
Although it's not pretty, it does have a cool blue light that glows inside!
I was surprised at some of the cool computer towers available like pink and white. However I am very basic about my technical stuff and this one is easy for Jim to get his hands in if need be.
I couldn't resist buying Zombie Zin since Jim loves the Walking Dead and we love red zinfandels.
Ok. It wasn't great, but it was fun for a laugh!
I've been playing around with chocolate!
This one has large salted peanuts in it. Fun and delicious to make!
We had our first significant snowfall Thanksgiving night when only flurries were predicted.
It was the heavy wet stuff! There are still some hot pink rose petal holding on for dear life behind this shrub.
I'm looking forward to Spring!
My parents gave me my grandmother's jewelry.
Whenever I receive a lot like this I keep the pieces that call me to wear and cherish. Then I will need to decide which pieces to pass on to another vintage jewelry lover and which to re-purpose.
Thank you for stopping by! Wishing you a marvelous week ahead! ~Val
