A Simple Plan

I would like to think I have a simple plan
this wonderful holiday season.
As I sit in my studio on this rainy day,
I find bits & pieces of a simple ornament idea,
that is beautiful enough to wear.
Ribbons and pendants to wrap around a gift or a candle.
 Golden warm colors
to keep your home inviting.
Pendants that can worn as a necklace,
displayed as an ornament
or
adorn a candle or gift.
Keeping it simple and very useful.

Soon in my shop!

Surrounded by Greys

I adore my greys.
So when I find shabby wood frames, I snap them up.
Just the right amount of grey & color.
When my good friend Amy
created this embroidered piece,
I knew it was a keeper!
I added a very small religious pin recently found on Etsy
Some recent finds...
Shopping at Tracey's French Larkspur Shop,
I found this French pin.
Greys and Greige - my favorite colors
A found prop (a cage) at a retail store!
How rare and now I keep an eye out
for such finds during my
 non antique & vintage store shopping.
 This sweet grey cage caught my eye.
Oh, this will come in handy.
A very happy Grey Dey Thursdey

Grey Tins and Molds

My greys have been coming to me
in the form of vintage molds lately. 
I love how they hold trinkets 
ready for my next project 
Vintage metal petite trays
on a vintage grey French Postes linen fabric
A peek at my work table from last weekend.
Some tins are French
 and some are from the good ole USA

A Grey Dey Thursdey

A bottle with a dull grey silver lid,
holds a message
 
I prefer dull to shiny
My greys are mixed with soft colors
I love both natural colors so much
Some may say, you don't like bright colors
and this would be true.
Perhaps I dream in vivid colors,
and that is why I adore my greys.
Linking up with other
Grey Dey Thursdey Gals!
