Jewelry Preview!

I had a burst of energy last night before I went to bed. So,
what did I do until 3 o'clock in the morning!? I made jewelry! Lot's and lot's of necklaces and earrings.

Here are some pictures of what I made. Most will be listed in my Reyney Etsy store today and tomorrow.

Necklaces and earrings include new and vintage findings. Lot's of brass and plastic goody-ness! Birds, owls, ocean themed stuff, love, leaves, gold plated, and silver plated.

I love them all! Lot's of color in this batch!

I have other pieces that were glued together. I'm just waiting for them to dry a bit before I take some pictures.

See something you like? Contact me, and I can reserve it for you!

New Goodies!

Some new things arrived in the mail today! I LOVE receiving mail! The first thing I opened was a box of the cutest little dolls. They are vintage Dakin Dream Dolls made in Japan. They are made by the same company as the Mermaid I bought a few days ago. They read Hansel and Gretl on the tags. I've been into collecting vintage dolls lately - probably because of my mom. She has thousands of dolls. I'll post some crazy pics of her collection soon!
The next package I opened was of this cute hanky I found in an Etsy store http://www.hummingbirdeyes.etsy.com/ It is beautiful and will look lovely in my collection. The second picture is a bunch of hankys that I have collected through the years. I pretend I know the history behind each one! I do have the vintage pattern to make them - it's just so much more fun to find them already made and in different colors too!
