Movie Review---Bring a Lot of Kleenex---------Nights In Rodanthe

Talk about chemistry. Richard Gere and Diane Lane back again together. After years have gone by since "Unfaithful" and "Cotton Club" (which I never saw), they're back again and better than ever.

Lane plays a married gal with kids whose estranged husband wants to return and play "husband" again. Lane goes off to a fabulous but kinda scary B&B that literally is on the beach shoreline. She's watching over it for her BFF who goes away on holiday. Gere plays a recently divorced surgeon who has retired and has some things to take care of in this beach village. Fast forward...romance blossoms quickly in dire times.

Okay, I'm not going to give away the ending. All I can say is that I do like Gere and Lane together again.

A Little Feathered Friend Comes to Visit

A little Tapping on my Window

Yesterday, early in the morning, I heard a "tap tap tap" on my family room window and a flutter of wings. I saw a cute little bird politely knocking on my window asking to come in.

Hello! Hello! Anyone home?

Luckily, I was able to take a couple photos of her before she flew off.

My New Shabby Chic Line of Jewelry

The Dianne Earrings
Swarovski crystals and crystal rhondelles
chartreuse fresh water pearls
sterling silver rings

I really LoVe using color and working with vintage and mod glass beads and fresh water pearls. Flowers and girly girlness are something that I adore.

Shabby Chicness...The Virginia Earrings
Vintage glass chandelier pieces
with fresh water pearls and
Swarovski crystals


So in keeping with these passions, I've created a new line which I endearingly call my "Shabby Chic" line.

The Martha Earrings
cranberry pink, gray,
pale chartreuse fresh water pearls
vintage glass chandelier pieces
swarovski crystals

In this new line, I continue my passion of playing with color, design, length, and components.

The Angela Earrings
fresh water pearls
pale green Jadelite carved Butterflies

Lastly, I oxidize (blacken) the pieces which are made of sterling silver until it has that perfect shabby chic color.

The JoAnne Earrings
vintage pink irridescent glass baubles
swarovski crystal rhondelles
fresh water pearls
in cranberry pink
and chartreuse


If you're like JoAnne, one of my BFFs (Best Friends Forever), who loves the silver silver of sterling, I can create these lovelies without oxidizing them and keep that silver shine.

The Chris Earrings
vintage blue and chartreuse glass baubles
swarovski crystal rhondelles
fresh water pearls
in chartreuse


These are just the perfect gifts to give to yourself because you know you deserve it. For you brides, your bridesmaids will absolutely LoVe these---to be worn on your wedding day or to take home to savor later on.

Keep in mind that Xmas is just around the corner and these would be thee perfect gift for your mom, sister, aunt, cousin, BFFs, co-worker, your child's teacher...anybody who loves feeling and looking pretty and special.

Best of all, your jewelry will be specially packaged with a cute ribbon and a silk flower...ready for gift giving. These Shabby Chic jewelry will definitely bring a smile to anyone's face.

Tobey as "the Mother"

princess tobey in her castle

My little princess Tobey was busy these last couple weeks being "Mother". Once or twice a year, she will lay a bunch of eggs which remain she does not have a mate.

tobey's babies...the size of a nickel

Tobey's little brood

She will go thru the whole nesting cycle...taking shredded paper to her nesting box, laying her eggs there, protect her lair, sit on her eggs and warm them. It's always a wonder of nature when she does this.

who goes there?!?

Her doctor said to let her go thru this natural cycle. After she's been sitting on the eggs for a couple weeks or so, then when she's off somewhere else, slowly remove them a couple eggs at a time each day until they're all gone. You don't want her to sit too long on them b/c she starts getting weary. You don't want her to be around when you remove them b/c it would be so traumatic on her.

tobey, the mommy bird

Tobey has been going thru this life cycle ever since she was about 1 years old. It never ceases to amaze me. My little princess is a Mother...if only for a short while.

Sorry that I haven't posted anything new lately. Once I have time, I will post new adventures again.

Just wanted to leave a cute photo of a little bird "who could". She was found sunbathing in our little garden. Apparently, taking a breather before trying out her new wings again. This will be one of my next blogettes.

Take care and Stop by later.

Stacy ;)
