This and That Post - Projects and Road Finds

Good Morning all Bloggers!
Here it is the end of November  and Nashville is dealing  with some warmer weather. The past week its been cool (32-35) in the morning and warms up around 10 to about 50 degrees so that I can open the door to the deck and Lily can go out. This morning at 7:30 it was already 51! And we have rain.  Welcome to the world of Global  Warming. 
Years ago when I was in paint class I painted my first Christmas card.  What I mean by that is I painted a  scene and I had it printed for  my card.
This is my first  Christmas card.  I am now working (and I am behind) on this years card.  For the next few (14) days I will post the cards over the years. By the time I am done, I should have this years painted. I will not post it though until it goes out in the mail and has been received. 


I was very proud of my first card. I sold the painting years ago but the above is a pic of the printed card.
Since I have been showing some of my creative projects I wanted to share this. Some of you might have seen it before…

My mom gave me this pendant that  she used to wear to work. She picked it up  at a yard sale years, years, and years ago!
Apparently it used to have a coin  in the center. You can't tell from the  pic but around the inside of the  turquoise beads is  Amethyst stones. My birth stone. 

But like I said before, I like my earrings and necklaces to match. So off to Hobby Lobby I went and this is what I pulled together  to match. Close enough.

Sorry....no pic of the chair before but it was just wooden, not pretty at all. So I painted it black and started free handing a design on it.


Racks I made years ago before  saws and woodworking fun....


Think Christmas!

Candlesticks made from the legs of an antique table.

Plain Black Shirt

My mom gave me a couple of sweatshirt type of shirts that  was too tight for her. A black and gray one.
I love BLACK. I tend to go straight to all black clothes in the store. If my clothes have color....it is usually mixed with black also! The bad thing about solid black is it really collects dog and cat hairs! haha
Here is the black one mom gave me.
Sorry about the blurred pic. Hard to believe that I am a photographer!
Anyway, seating here last night when I could not sleep I decided that  black shirt needed something to make it stand out better.
Buttons.... yes buttons would work just nicely.

So I put some up around the collar.
And on the sleeves.

Now....don't that look better?

And here is a pic of the sleeve.

When my daughter was like in the  2nd

More Pam's Creations - Jewelry

I really enjoyed working with  washers. I had a bunch on hand  when I started working with them.
I love scrapbook paper if you have not noticed. This set was made with washers and scrapbook paper.
This piece was made with beads I had on hand..... (secret is....I have TONS of beads). The dangling part at the end of the  necklace was a piece I recycled from another necklace that had broken. 

I just thought this piece is great for a teen. Mom had picked up some pieces at a yard  sale and the arrow head was in that bunch of things she got. 

Earrings.....beads on hand. the royal blue, green, and the purple ones are made with glass beads. 

I loved this piece I made for one of my co workers at the Bureau.  The piece on the necklace was yet another recycled piece. Looks like two moons connecting. I attached the pearl to it. 

One of my fav pieces. I donated this one to my grandson's elementary s
