More is good



When you look out of the window and those "colors" are the only ones to be seen, you definitely need something to cheer you up! Jane showed her pretty holiday-jewelry, and I needed to get mine out too. And like her I also think that there can't be too much of a good thing. In one piece even I'd say.



Yup, that is my holiday bracelet. When I purchased it from etsy last year, it was described as extra chunky. I wonder why...



I also have an another, a little more subtle favorite, which I actually have put together myself. Yes, with no experience of jewelry-making I just purchased the cute (snowmen, gingerbread men and Christmas trees) figures and attached them with little hooks to a thrifted chain. I think some real jewelry-makers might get a slight palpitation out of this, but I like it. My sis likes hers too, naturally she has similar one (and the chunky too).



I am happily wearing both already (not the same time however) and will do so until the New Year... At least!

Happy Wednesday!

We are forecast snow by the end of the week here Mia....it's turning very chilly.I do love snow but really we don't cope well with it in the UK, we grind to a halt!
As you have said I also LOVE themed jewellery and your bracelets are great...I also think the one you made is super...all my favourite Christmas charactors on one bracelet!
Keep warm.
Love Jane x

Love that red and green bracelet - so bright, colourful and Christmassy!
As for the first couple of pictures, well, they could be my own back garden today. Brrr. So cold now, lucky we have a stove to keep us warm.
Have a warm and cosy last day of the week Mia.

Thank you, Pam!

It's storming here now too, and wind just gets harder and harder... I am definitely staying in and knitting a certain cover today ;-)

Happy day and stay warm too!

Yours,

This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
