Another perfect day here in So. Cal.

 Eden roses are one of my favorite
I just love the color in these photos I took - the flowers don't even look real...

Table scape with moss and roses

When our backyard was finished we had a photo shoot for a design publication. My friend Kimm & I designed the centerpiece out of several different kinds of moss, then added green hydrangea and pink garden roses. After that we added some small and medium sized candles that were an ivory color. 

SO MAGICAL - I wish it could of stayed like that forever. After the photo shoot we let the hydrangea, moss and roses just hang around and dry out - actually it looked nice for a long time  :)

Some of my jewelry designs

 Moss aquamarines with vintage micro mosaic cross from Italy
 Moss aquamarines, natural stone earrings with gold and vintage french beads
Vintage roses pendant with moss aquamarine and antiqued brass - already sold this one... but I just had to show you :)


My painting

Still needs some final touches - almost there...


Roses  - from my back yard. 'Distant Drums' are the main roses...
