Had a little time to get my "Martha On" created a little something that's been swimming around in my head for a while...
always nice to get it out of there...
so as other things can move to the forfront!..Lol...
Have been noticing these darling Shabby roses a few bloggers have made ...
figured it was my turn....I gathered my supplies and went to town!!!!

After I got the hang of the roses...(very easy by the way)...added some pearls and thought...
I'll make a necklace...
natural transition for me..seeings how Kathy's my name and Jewelry's my game!

How fun is THAT!!!!!

I stopped long enough to give you a peek...

have a few more ideas I'm off to create a little more.

First ...a shot of the cutest tray I found in Lansing at the GW...
didn't even have to paint it...just a little scrubbing...

Are you finding some time to do what makes you happy today?
Hope so!


  1. That necklace is fabulous!! Love it and love the fabrics you used!!

  2. How cute is that? And I love the lace rose. So pretty!


  3. Hi Kathy, The necklace is beautiful! I love the tray too, looks like you had a very creative day. I too did manage to get a little "me" time in just to craft a bit...Have a super day! hugs, Jennifer

  4. Love the necklace, what a great idea.

  13. Kathy..You did a great job:) And pretty pics..I have a few favorite necklaces..and one of Nana..another 3 of my grandsons names..and the latest is a gift from one of my DD's.. Large denim roses:)

    I have only worn it once..It felt so yours must♥

  14. You are a true creative genius, Kathy! Excited to be heading UP NORTH this weekend. Aren't we blessed to live in this beautiful state! Happy ... happy ... Michigan spring!

  15. Oooh, those roses are really pretty, Kathy.

  16. ooooohhhh! Loving it! How beautiful the inside of your head must be!

  17. Kathy, your necklace is gorgeous!! I love it. The little bit of turquoise added to it is so pretty! And your try is really nice. I went to GW today, but didn't find anything. Some days are just like that. Love & blessings from NC!

  18. Hi Kathy! Oh, you are the most marvelous one! Your little roses are so adorable! Love the little necklace! You're so good. The tray is lovely too. I know you just laid that pretty necklace on the towel, but wouldn't a towel be pretty with some of those roses sewn on it?
    When you get rich with this, you'll have to pay me royalties for my idea! :)
    Now you keep those compliments coming. I love 'em.
    Did I tell you I'm having a party on May 7th? I would love for you to come. There' a little button on my sidebar that will tell you all about it.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)
