Two turtledoves and a great read for you crafty folks

Just look at this delightful ATC Sophia from Blue Chair Diary made, so bright and cheery. Two very loving turtle doves for sure.

I wanted to share this book given to me from Bob and the kids. I gave this poor husband of mine the unwanted task of finding a Christmas gift for me that I didn't pick out for myself. I know I made him feel guilty when I stated I would just love one gift that I didn't know was coming. Well he came through with flying colors when he picked out this book...Enchanted Adornments by Cynthia Thornton.

It is chock full of beautiful jewelry but between the pages Cynthia narrates a wonderful story of creating each piece on commission for a host of folk lore nymphs , fairies, and woodland creatures.

This by far is my most favorite of the 20 pieces .

The beginning of the book is full of techniques for polymer clay, precious metal clays, resin and other mediums. I will have to experiment and show you how it comes out.

Angie, I've been in my own little world the past few weeks, and I'm just getting around to reading your posts. I love how you've highlighted each card for The Twelve Days. I just discovered this book yesterday on some random Google search. I love Cynthia's Green Girl whimsical beads, and I know I need that book too. :-) Fantastic choice by your husband...I'm impressed!
