Sittin', Waitin', Wishin'...

...for it to be Spring.

This is what I awoke to. And lots more like it! It's a good thing snow is pretty I tell ya! Now we are into the ice rain - not so pretty - and very loud against the windows...

Look at this beauty I scored the other day...a vintage choker.

It's got the most fabulous pink and smokey quartz gems. I'll probably end up listing it...

Isn't this sweet?

It's an Easter advent pyramid. I have a couple of Christmas ones but I had never seen one for Easter! (got it on ebay) When you light the candles on the bottom it makes the fans at the top turn around, as well as each tier.

'Lil details...

I tried doing my collage work on a bigger canvas. This one is 12 x 12 with 2" deep sides. It's a whopper!

Well, that's it for me today. Thanks for stopping by. Oh, one more thing for Heather. May I present the Queen... ;)

Oh that cold window view looks incredible Joy! and very cold!
I love that sparkly jewellery! That colour combination is just beautiful!
The collages are so gorgeous, you have such a great eye for colour and placement.
That pyramid is so wonderful! I've only ever seen Christmas ones, my mother has one and I think they are German, is yours German? I love it!!

Our Snow is melting!! Finally - It's still cold though. I have to say that the Choker is gorgeous, and I really love the Easter pyramid!!! I too have Christmas ones but have never seen an Easter pyramid. Now - If can find an Irish pyramid, I will be in heaven! I can't wait until the Flea markets open up here! xo Sher

P.S. Your 12x12 Collage is absolutely Gorgeous sweets!!!

I love the advent pyramid - I've never seen one for Easter either. The necklace is amazing. We didn't get the snow but lots of rain and now the wind is blowing like you wouldn't believe.
