Happy Memorial Day!
In honor of Memorial Day, I have created a simple but sincere white heart wreath with red roses and baby's breath and added an elegant navy blue bow. I love the simplicity and the colors this wreath has to offer.

Enjoy your weekend with family and friends, nice food, some wine and maybe you will have some time to do some special crafting--that's my wish to you!

Team Tuesday!!

Welcome to the EtsyNJ Team Tuesday blog hop! Here's how it works - write a feature about any EtsyNJ team member on your blog (as long or as short as you'd like it to be) and then add the blog hop code at the end of this post and check out all of the other great features - get to know the EtsyNJ street team!!

This week I would like to feature one of Caroline's earrings from her Etsy shop New Hope Beading.

These awesome earrings are made from vibrant blue turquoise and contrasted with deep crimson coral and accented by Bali sterling silver beads, these earrings are absolutely gorgeous. Great to wear all year but especially nice in the summer.

Caroline carefully picks gemstones from across the globe to create very limited edition, often one-of-a-kind jewelry. She enjoys hand forging and hammering sterling, fine silver and copper pieces and incorporates silver directly from Bali or the Karen Hill Tribe in Thailand. Hill tribe silver is 97.5% to 99% pure and is absolutely beautiful.

New Hope Beading proudly donates 5% of the price of each item purchased to the Epilepsy Foundation of NJ as thanks for the wonderful support they have given her family following her daughter's diagnosis of epilepsy.

Great job Caroline! I wish you much success with your business and with your daughter's treatment.

About Me

My photo
I am fascinated with flowers and floral designing is my passion--I do my designing late at night since I am not a morning person! I love to cook and invent new recipes. My favorite is "refrigerator soup"--when I want homemade soup I find whatever is leftover in the fridge and cook up a pot of soup. It's always a surprise what comes out but is usually good! I love to hang out with my good friends just having some wine at home or out at our favorite restaurants. I like taking pictures of the flowers that I grow in my garden.
