Trash to Jewelry

Hello my dear readers,


A friend brought me a little packet full of  jewelry findings.  Here is what I already have been upto.



I believe this is part of an earring.  I cut it in half to make two necklaces.  Since its silver colored
I thought it would look well with turquoise so I crushed a genuine turquoise bead into tiny pieces.  These are the results.  From one pair I have 4 necklaces and two brooches.








A warm welcom to my new followers

We are enduring some very hot days.  I cannot even think about going outside for a walk.  The weather forecast promises that it will get cooler by the end of the week. Days like these hot ones are expected in July-August. I think the climate has gone mad.

Blessings to all

Incredible dolls - part 2

Dear readers,

Again I want to share with you more gorgeous dolls created by a master Norwegian artist.  I wish I could buy one doll but I'm sorry I cannot afford the price. It would also be very hard to make a choice. They are all so adorable.












A wonderful Sunday to all of you.  Blessings

A gorgeous giveaway arrived.  It made all the way from Jose in Seville, Spain to me here in Israel.  I have not enough words to describe my delight.  First of all my joy in having one of this most talented artist's work in my possesion.  Everything you see in this diorama is created by Jose himself, furniture, picture frames, wallpaper, floor and rug, hats and bag, wall scones and table, etc.










THANK YOU DEAR JOSE FOR THIS WONDERFUL PRIZE!!!

Invitation to the opening of the art gallery

Hello my dear friends

Finally I can invite you to the  opening of the gallery and here are a few photos.

















The two IPad box scenes will stay on top of the gallery because of space limit in my home.

Looking at these photos, I can see that I could use more paintings to hang on the sides.  I also want
to install electricity for the chandeliers.

Thank you my dear Ilona  for your wonderful help in shrinking my original paintings for me. You enabled me to make this gallery possible.  It also shows how online friends can inspire you.

I've had some trouble lately with making comments on your blogs.  I wish I knew how to solve the problem of not always being able to get my readers list. I have to enter your blogs through your comments on mine.

A warm welcome to my new follower, Absyntowa. Thank you so much for following.  If you have a blog, please make a comment on this post so I can follow you back.

Blessings to all, take care and keep safe.

Working on the gallery again

The painting gallery has not been forgotten.  It's just that I needed a large room box. Now the box has arrived. So this what I managed to work on during the past week.



Special fixtures to hang the paintings on.




Two new chandeliers ready to be hung.  I found a glass necklace, purchased years ago in Prague, and exchanged some of the acrylic beads with the glass ones.


A narrow side table. I mean to place on it a vase of flowers and a visitors notebook for visitors to sign.
I made the table's legs from black, elegant cocktail forks.



For the floor I pieced together 3 pages of floor paper and covered it with a large piece of acetate.
The photo doesn't show it but in reality it's a smooth, shiny floor. I spent quite a few hours on making this floor but am satisfied with the results.



You will notice that I am using a lot of black and white.  The paintings when
they'll all hang together, will add a lot of color to the scene.

I hope to be able to show the finished box room before next week, so please stay tuned.

Wishing you all a wonderful Sunday and blessings.

It's my lucky day

I am a very lucky woman.  I came back home, after a very busy day, to find this lovely little parcel  waiting for me in my post box.  It was Gill's giveaway which I won a few weeks ago.




Gill has two more wonderful blogs worth visiting - http://thatchcottage.blogspot.co.il/ and
http://thatchcottage.blogspot.co.il/ .

THANK YOU GILL!






First thing I saw, when I opened my email, was Jose's comment on my last post, in which he notified me
that I won his gorgeous giveaway.  My dears, I am over the moon with delight. Cannot believe I am that
lucky.




My dear friend Kikka gave me this award. Thank you Kikka, I am honored. There are so many wonderful
blogs who deserve this award and it's so difficult to choose, that I decided to give it to all my dear followers.

You will all agree with me that it was a great day!!!  Blessings to all!
