Floral Holiday Blog Hop

If you are looking for my Challenge of Color hop

So darned excited about this!!!!
Lisa of Pine Ridge Treasures sent out a call
for those interested in participating in this.
Jumped! Love the holidays.

She sent a wonderful floral mix, lovely, and
encouraged us to create outside-of-the-box and 
to try to use the beads sent to us. 

As my jewelry muse seems to be missing
I was really trying to be "outside" the jewelry box.

When it hit me, it hit hard!
I am lovin' what I created!
Light hearted and fun!

So, ok, here goes......
Wine charms ~ I did have to use a few of my red czech flowers
so that I could create enough variety.

What is this, you ask...
It is jewelry for your wine gift! 
Makes it even more festive.

And lastly, what every good bottle of wine needs
a scarf!
I knitted and embellished! Scarves are hot right
now and it is winter, after all.

Well there you have it, festive and fun! Hope you liked them. :)

Now, if you feel that your bottle of wine (or one you
are giving as a gift) needs some dressing up, please say so in 
your comment and I will draw a name!
(lucky wine bottle)

One to the rest! Please hop around and see what
goodness these talented folks have created!

I love the wine charms and the little wine necklace and scarf. That is such a great idea and would really make a gift of wine all the more special. I'd love to be in the running.

Alicia said...

Oh, Courtney: such a fresh idea! You charms are beautiful and they'll make any party look festive. And the scarf - the cutest thing I've seen! Love them all :)
Your Muse seems just fine to me ;)

FANTASTIC! I absolutely love the scarf! And the wine bottle jewelry -- PERFECT! What beautiful lady doesn't need a good necklace of bling around her neck?! Those wine charms are way too cute! I am so into the bling!

May you have a Wonderful, Merry, and Peaceful Season.
