My Rainy Day Creation
I received these vintage buttons several months ago, and made these earrings up in five minutes today, I am thinking they might be for me, since I love green earrings (they bring out my eyes). I have four of the same buttons with purple hearts, and one pink one (shame, wish I had two, I guess the pink will make a necklace!).
The wet and stormy weather has driven me out of my office, since I have to cover things with a plastic tarp and put a bucket under the damp area on the ceiling... perilously close to my computer.... the desktop has to stay there but at least my laptop can be brought out here, in the warm dining room.
Winter is beginning to take its toll on my hands, I have wonderful hand creams, but when should I use them... I don't like it when I'm going to work with beads as I don't want greasy fingerprints everywhere, same with using the computer, and reading books.... does anyone else have this problem? I put it on before bed, but rubbed my eye early in the night... stung like crazy, tears ran down my face... that'll teach me.
It is however good reading weather, I love being snuggled up reading in winter, though I am shocked to discover the last five books I've read are classified as Young Readers or Young Adult books.... is that why I've struggled with my current book The Witches of Eastwick, I found when I got to page 14 that I had drifted through a terrible amount of the text and will have to give myself a stern admonishment to 'pay attention!'
Anyway, its time to stoke up the fire, and I confess, also to get myself over to facebook to play Treasure Madness....
