Fancy Feather Earrings

I have been on a feather kick lately and when I found the blue peacock feathers that were already earrings at a local store, I bought them to kick them up a notch. Added new hooks and the black/clear/rhinestone part. FANCY! I know.

They will look great with jeans, braided hair and my ratty green sweatshirt. ;-) I am kidding, I made them for a friend's birthday.

That is why I had to add a fancy little gift box. That little shimmery tie around the box is elastic, so I suppose, she can wear it as a bracelet. Fun times.

I am sure she goes to a lot of fancy balls, so perhaps she can wear it with one of those Downton Abbey gowns?

And in other news, I am sitting here breathing varnish fumes.

My new scrapbooking cabinet is mostly done.

Well, it is painted and cleared. Unfortunately right this minute it's giving me a huge headache as it is still smelly.

BUT I LOVE IT. It fought us the entire way. It is great it is supposed to look old and beat up already...since we accomplished that by accident. Some of the clear did not behave.

See how perfectly my paints fit in there?

Still have to get the shelves and the stained glass doors from my Mom and Dad.

Stained glass is all done, just waiting for us to get it at Easter. How to you like that RED? THE MAN picked out all the glass and colors.

Will be glad when the whole project is done. It was one of two large projects we have been messing with lately.

The first one I haven't told you about yet....saving that for a scrappy page!

Happy Friday!
