Pink Beads

Just a quick post, so we can finally stop looking at pillows. They are fun to make, but I am ready to get on to something else. Something like this pink necklace and earring combo that I put together.

This picture doesn't show off how pretty the metallic pink pearls are. The faceted beads are light pink acrylic, which helped to keep the piece somewhat light weight. The large pink shell beads are fairly heavy, but it is very comfortable to wear. My Darling Hubby has a dental appointment tomorrow, so I think I'll go with him and have an excuse to wear this new creation.

Speaking of my DH, he is such a sweetie. The kitchen table we ordered arrived today, so being the thrifty thing that he is, he picked it up and put it together.

He worked really hard getting it just right

...and saved us $80.00 in the process. You can't really tell from the picture, but the table is almost waist high. Perfect for food prep, I'm so tired of hunching over the old table and chopping and cutting. Plus, my kitchen is somewhat small and now I can even open the oven door all the way. By the way, notice in the grocery bag...there are plenty of chips and Gourmet Ginger Ale for a "job well done" reward. He is a very special guy and he deserves a special treat. I'll bet that you all knew that, anyway.

That's all for now, take care and enjoy the rest of the week.

Nice table, sweet hubby, and awesome eye in creating art. Love that jewelry piece. You are blessed with so much. I don't have to tell you that. By the way, your new pic looks so great. You look happy and healthy.

I love the necklace. It is beautiful!!!
We have a pub table too!!! With only 2 chairs though, we love it. It is nice to stand at and write out bills. It is nice for prep too! We came across ours accidently. We went into a normally high end furniture store to browse and they were selling our table for a really low price because the manufacturer was going out of business. It has a copper table top, which I had never seen before.
Your table is lovely. (Same as you!)
And I agree with Tina, your new picture is GREAT!
Have fun at the dentist!
