Look At What I Didn't Find In My Attic

Nope, I didn't find any of the photos above in my attic or
anyone else's but it's sure fun pretending!

I'm hoping your week's gotten off to a good start.
I have lots of creative plans for the week ahead, one
of them being a giveaway here on my blog.
Make sure to stop by again soon for a chance
to win one of my pieces of art.
Have a happy!

Photo-Op Friday: Still Life With Beaded Flowers

I found these beaded flowers in the basement of my in-laws' house
as they were  preparing to move.  They were in the give-away pile
and so I quickly scooped them up.  
My husband's great-aunts and grand-mother beaded
each and every petal and leaf by hand.
When I brought the flowers home, I found
the perfect spot for them inside this decoupage bucket I made 
while at the retail company I started called, The MacBeth Collection.
The display sits high atop my dining room cabinet and comes
down for special occasions but is always in view.

Chocolate Heaven

For a Valentine's Day treat, my husband and I went
to Chocopologie.  It was our first time there
but it's not going to be our last.
The shop is a little cafe in SoNo.  That's an area
in South Norwalk, CT. that was built up to resemble
New York City's Soho.

On weekdays you can watch chocolate
being made through the large glass
Our eggs were yummy but our dessert

Beignets with chocolate truffle centers
and freshly made mango sorbet.
I promise there was another spoon somewhere.
Yes.  We were sharing.

Love and chocolate.

Petal to the Metal

Guess what.  I have a fantastic 
new line of brass pendants in my shop.
These pendants have a vintage, Victorian look to them yet a
modern twist due to the colors and imagery in my artwork.
Here's a taste of what they look like.  For the full line come and
check out my Etsy shop 24/7.
