Lorelei's Jade Scott Pinwheel Challenge!

A couple of weeks ago, the wonderful Lorelei announced a new challenge on her blog. Only six lucky people would be selected at random to receive one of Jade Scott's new enameled pinwheels. I was totally floored when I got a message from Lorelei that I was one of the winners!

I knew right away that I was going to pair it with one of Elukka's houses, which I had only recently purchased. And while I don't usually work with orange much, I am really excited about the way my necklace came together!

As always, click to enlarge!

Make sure to check out all the other participants' blogs, as well as Lorelei's to see what they've created!

Just for fun, Rebecca Anderson of Songbeads decided to order a pinwheel from Jade and play along on her own. Make sure to see what she made!

Thanks for stopping by!

What a Weekend!

I finally joined the Cult of iPhone! I wanted to be an Android person, and maybe I would have stayed one if my Hero hadn't been so slow and incapable. My contract was up on the 1st, so I went out shortly thereafter and got myself a 4S. It's wonderful!

As if that wasn't exciting enough, we bought a Tempur-pedic Cloud Luxe California King bed! I can't wait until it arrives on Friday, but it's just as well, because it turns out stores around here tend not to stock California King size bedding. I ordered a comforter set online last night, but I still have to get some sheets. I thought sure I could find some at TJ Maxx or Marshall's today, but I was wrong about that! I know I can get some good deals online, but I'd prefer to get some in person so I can feel them and see if I like the fabric. The bed at the store was on some sort of base that could elevate the feet or the head or both, and massage as well. I was so ready to go for the whole shebang, but it turned out, it was a ridiculous amount of money that we didn't need to be spending right now. But there's nothing saying we can't add it on later if we so choose...

Anyway, here's what I did find at Marshall's! I call them The Twins. They're 16" I think, and will be a great addition to my prop family!

Because I was such a busy bee today, and to prepare for the new bed/bedding, I finally managed to get frames for some adorable Cori Dantini prints I'd bought last year. They look kind of sad hanging up on the big wall, and the frames and mats just blend right in with the wall, but that's just how it's going to be. For now anyway. We're not going to live here forever. And it's not like the curtains match anything!

I also made a necklace with my first Round Rabbit piece! I'll be listing it on Etsy shortly.
