family wall re-do & new jewelry creations...

i've been wanting to re-do our family photo wall for awhile. mainly to add ashton to it, but also to update our photos too, and go with a different look. this was inspired by pottery barn. i merged a few different grouping that i adored, and though it isn't totally finished, i love it!! i think my favorite part is the that the family proclaimation to the world is grouped with our pictures!


photo credit: all mine except picture of me taken by stephan



i moved my beloved cherry sign (done by the fabulous jandi) to the front hallway. it makes sense there.





and now to the jewelry....
i really love this first piece. i think it's a good juxtaposition of wood, crystals and color. it makes me happy when i look at it.


this piece is my new favorite. it's just so ME! pearly, bling in the form of rhinestones, chain, a few charms, and to soften it all up a creamy satin ribbon running through the chaos. the picture doesn't really do justice...it's better on.


this piece was sundance inspired. leather holding together pearls and glass bead strung on silk cording. beautiful and rugged at the same time.



this one if quite different from anything i've made. it's longer than i usually wear (maybe that's why i have yet to wear it). the jury is still out on this one. maybe it will end up being a christmas present. :)
