I received a very wonderful gift in the mail on Saturday. It was from a lady named Cheryl, from the site { I hope you will check her site out. Cheryl sells great stuff on E-Bay too.}
She had seen a post about my jewelery on Dawn's site, The Feathered Nest,
She said she didn't use these things anymore and wanted to give them to me. How nice is that? She e-mailed Dawn and got my address and mailed me a great box of goodies.
I was in awe of all of the wonderful things she sent me. I will be making a bunch of bracelets and necklaces with these wonderful treasures.

I love red..It is my favorite color. These beads will be used in no time.
They are staying in a yellow cup right now. One of those old fashioned ones from the 1960's.

Blue is another favorite..Is there anything more calming than looking at a blue ocean?
Or a blue sky?
Hmmm, plans in the making for blue bracelet.

Pearls, a mermaids favorite jewelery...

Pearls, white vintage glass beads, and metal and silver beads..

This is a bracelet I made my Grand Baby Chloe. I made this from the goodies already.. Chloe is only 2 1/2 but I think she will like this.I hope so..

I made this for my beautiful daughter-in-law Tiffany. She loved it..
Tiffany is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. I am glad my son found someone who loves him like she does. By the way, Happy Birthday C.J..
You are always thought of with love.

This is a bracelet I titled Yellow crush. Because I love the colors of these stones..
Thank you Cheryl from the bottom of my heart.
I have been sorting beads all weekend, and I loved it. It really helped to take my mind off the sadness..

Beautiful and uplifting gift and it isn't even Christmas yet. You are going to get lost in beautiful projects with all these jewels Nita. I am so glad that Cheryl thought of giving them to you and blessing you with them. Can't wait to see what you create in that beautiful mind of yours. Enjoy and be blessed.

Love, Laurie in Ca.

What a beautiful gift! I love the tiny little bracelet you made for your grandbaby. I love vintage beads and "junk jewelry". I have many that I wear during the winter months that were from my grandmothers and my mom.

I know you will make many treasures from the beads that will become keepsakes for someone! I'm looking forward to seeing more of your creations... and, reading more of your wonderful writing!

Great treasures Nita.
I love the bracelet you made for your grand baby. I didn't know you were a grandma!!

Wow, I am familiar with the feathered nest. No you have lots of goodies to make more great stuff Nita.

Thinking of you today.
Happy Sunday, God Bless You

I love your photos....Your camera is awesome as I have said many times before.

Nita, what a treasure! I am so happy that you are having fun with these and making beautiful things from them. Your blog has inspired me to look through my own stash of forgotten beads and resurrect some of them into new items. I just keep buying beads with no thought as to how they will end up. Good luck on your making good use of this treasure! I'm sure you will do wonderful things!
