The Mayflower

Good day to you!

Christmas is over, the clock ticks quickly towards the end of the year 2016, my crown year in which my dear husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary! I love my husband so very much! We've come to an agreement to make it at least another 35 more years, so..... we are not even halfway there. I will be 85 then and he will be 108!😍 We will go for it, haha! Our love is as strong as God is!

The sun is doing it's best to shine a bit longer again during the day. We're heading in the only and right direction...... a new spring and hopefully a very prosperous new year! So many exciting things are on the agenda for the world. I can feel it in the air! I hope my hopes will come true. I for myself will keep wishing upon a star and pray for peace. With my head always into flowers and sparkles and now carefully dreaming from a new spring to come I thought to create this happy greeting card which I baptized 'The Mayflower'. I decorated the backside as well and added some matching earrings I created earlier this year but didn't share these pictures from. I hope you enjoy the eyecandy for today and foremost I hope you have had a peaceful and loving Christmas time! Remember to............ Enjoy today! Tomorrow may never come! And thank you to my dear readers for the lovely comments! Always!

Teal chandelier earrings and more

Dear reader,

Just before Christmas starts I wanted to show the last batch of teal and pearl earrings I designed. The tealblue chandelier earrings were an experiment and i'm quite happy with the outcome. They are truly grand LOL and quite something to have dangling in your ears 😎 They were so much fun to create!  I used faux pearls for these as well as miracle beads for the drops and little bicone Swarovski beads with AB finish as well as opalite beads. I added some extra pictures here so you can see them shine when the light is glowing on them. Isn't it true magic how those miracle beads shine? Also some fairy pearl earrings with faux drop pearls and strass as well as flowers. This will end my teal blue series of the past days then.

I am now preparing for Christmas eve. In the meantime i'm enjoying beautiful and God send music from the Mormon Tabernacle choir. I read on the internet that they will perform at the inauguration of President Donald Trump on the 20th of January 2017. I'm so much looking forward to that day. It will be a day that give me the chills for sure when I hear that choir singing. Such a great choice to invite that choir. I'd never heard of them before but i'm hooked! I love choirs and sang in a couple of choirs myself. It's so magical to hear the synchronicity in voices and the blending of the tones. So perfect! It truly transfers me to Narnia! I will put a youtube video of them at the end of this post so you can hear it yourself! Amazing Grace! That truly IS! Thank you for your time and hope you will enjoy!

Blue bells

Handmade earrings by Ingeborg van Zuiden
Hi there dear reader!

I hope you are doing great wherever you are and are not too stressed out over all the Christmas preps to be done!

Now..... only 2 days to go and then it's Christmas. I can hear the bells ringing already 🔔 and with that I mean I am trying to find a 'word bridge' between my blue bells topic for today and the Christmas bells 😊 . I made some Christmas 'belles' earrings again and wanted to quickly show them to you, just before they will end in my ears perhaps, haha. I made a couple of pairs in blue and white colors this time. I played around with faux pearls and balls this time as well as with miracle beads. You can see them glow on one of the pictures where the earrings are with the blue drops. Isn't it a miracle how they shine?! I love those! I'm a magpie when it comes to glitter and shiny things. My eye always is caught into the glitter trap lol. I hope you enjoy the pictures and I promiss to be back soon again with more!
