I love finding unique handmade products to share with you. This has to be on the top of the list. What a great gift idea for the Chess enthusiast.
"Tool Chess is a chess set made out of nuts, bolts and various other hardware pieces. I assemble each set by hand to my dad’s design, then the pieces are powdercoated for a rich, glossy color. All Tool Chess pieces have a hex nut on the bottom and a threaded stud in the middle. The tops are various configurations of nuts, washers, brass balls, rivets, etc." --William Gallmayer (Etsy, Fresh Shop)
Spring is on it's way and I have been filling up my Pretty Whimsical shop with a new jewelry line. Personalized necklaces are on trend and I have lots of fun styles to choose from. Great gift ideas for Valentine's Day and Easter with Mother's Day and Graduation not far behind. I have created many of my necklaces with the upcoming wedding season in mind. Bridesmaids will love these simple yet classy necklaces that can be a lovely remembrance of that special day.
Brrrrr...it's cold outside! Hello and goodbye "polar vortex"! I can't say I'll miss you when your gone. It has been bone chilling cold today and I am happy it is moving out of here tomorrow. I do love seeing the snow, since it is not a normal occurrence for this part of Missouri. It was a beautiful day with the sun sparkling on the white frosted ground and the mist swirling across the lake. I found a poem that summed up the day for most of the country...But the North sighed low, "Snow, snow, more snow!" Well said Walter De La Mare.
