New Hand Stamped Jewelry Line by Pretty Whimsical

Pretty Whimsical is spreading its wings and launching a new hand stamped jewelry line.  I am very pleased to introduce to you a few of the new pieces.  Sounds of hammer meeting metal have been coming from my workroom, much to the dismay of the human and pets in the rest of the house.  Hours have been spent combining pendants with charms and crystals, making final decisions on what type of chain or fonts to order.  I hope you will stop by the shop and check out my first few pieces and keep an eye out on what's new in the coming months.

Saturday Link Love. Apples.

Well it has been awhile since I posted on Saturday.  Summer was busy and marked a year full of changes for my family.  New jobs, deciding to send my girls to a new school and mentally preparing myself for my son starting his senior year of high school!  Oh and let's not forget two more members of this family learning to drive!  Yikes!  Time to settle back down into normal routines again.  There is some comfort in that even when life is hectic.

Apples have been on my mind this week.  Each year, when the cooler weather starts to seep in, I always want to bake an apple pie.  Part of the reason jumps back to childhood and my grandmothers' deep love for all things 'apple' and the other is the fresh stacks of apples sitting pretty in the produce section.

If you haven't already guessed the links will have to be apple related this week.  Enjoy!

Handmade Portraits: Sophie Blackall

I love finding new artist and learning about how they create their artwork.  Stumbling across a new favorite tonight.  Creative, fun and very 'whimsical' favorite kind.
