How Was Your Weekend?

Good question? How was your weekend? Mine was full!! We had out of state company, so it was like one big party everyday! Thank goodness my mother in law has a pool. It was so hot! One good thing we did, is have a jewelry show (my jewelry) on Friday night! WOW! I did awesome!

You may recognize this bracelet because it's in my shop. But Friday morning I made another one using antique brass components. I didn't get a chance to photograph it because it was one of the pieces I sold on Friday night!

These are a pair of earrings that have not been listed yet. But they do follow the turquoise theme, don't they!

And lastly, this is new. Not listed yet, but I think it's a pretty purse dangle, don't you?
I also got a great haircut this weekend. I've been growing my hair out since December, trying to even up the layers. This weekend I had it cleaned up and shaped. I'm so happy with it!!

So that was my weekend. What did you do?

Recipe Of The Day

This morning I had to get up early to make a triple batch of Tabbouleh for a large crowd. I love this salad so much that I crave it! As you can see in the above photo, it's very healthy and oh so yummy!!
So I decided to share the recipe with you. Hope you don't mind.


1/2 cup Bulgar (cracked wheat)
1 or 2 tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1 cucumber, peeled and chopped
2 green onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup fresh snipped parsley
3 Tablespoons fresh mint leaves, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil

Place the cracked wheat in a bowl and cover with 1 cup boiling water. Soak for 30 min. Drain and squeeze well to squeeze out the excess water.
In bowl, combine all ingredients. Toss and refrigerate at least 4 hours. Toss before serving.

Makes 4 servings.

If you're on Weight Watchers, like I am, there is only 4 pts. in each serving.

I hope you all enjoy this! I know I will! I just made a batch for me too!!

Cin's Serenity!!

"Cin's Serenity!" That's the name of the wonderful treasury that Ashley of the shop Fringe and Flourish on Etsy, made as an ode to me and my favorites! Wasn't that sweet of her?? You can see the treasury in full here, and if you click on the title at the start of this post, it will take you to the real one so you can click and comment there as well!

As you probably noticed, there are even items from Wugylees shop! You know her here by her blog, The Wug's Backyard Blogspot.

Thanks so much Ashley!!! Much appreciated!

Being Sick Is No Fun! Or...Is It?

For the last few days, I've had a sore throat, a cough that won't end and a terrible headache! Thankfully the headache is now gone and I can go on with my life! So what did I do with myself since Wednesday? Well I snooped and snooped around Etsy and made a couple of treasuries! Both can be seen along the side of this post. "Play Misty For Me" and "Black Cat Society." You can click on them to go to the treasury!

I also decided it was time for me to make some new earrings for my shop. The above photo shows a cute pair, don't you think?

The ones in the above photo I'm not too sure about yet. They may or may not get into my shop. We'll see about that!

I'm totally in love with these "beachy" earrings with the pearls and starfish! Hope you like them too!

Wowza!! I love the copper in these!

Then I got to thinking that I haven't made any purse charms in awhile, so here are a couple of new ones that I made! I love them myself!

On to bracelets! I actually made 2 bracelets. One is already listed in my shop, so you'll have to go there to see it! LOL But this one is made with acrylic diamond beads with Swarovski elements. I love the silver with it!

And last, but not least, I made this set as a custom order for someone who ice skates! She loves them, but I need to make them just a bit bigger! I love it when people love the custom designs I come up with! Welcome custom orders!!!
That's it and thankfully I feel well enough today to get to the grocery store and get some food in the house. Yes, I AM on a diet (lost 6 lbs. so far), but I still need to eat!
Have a great weekend!!
