March Hares - the AJE Themed Challenge Reveal

Well to say I love Bunnies is somewhat of a understatement.  I have been collecting them for years.  There was a time when I even raised them.  My favorite Bunny was Inkie!  A beautiful White Bunny with black spots, a black stripe down her back and a black Butterfly Nose marking.  She was so sweet!! These two bunnies are from some of my decorations.

She kind of looked like this "sweetie".

Here's another one of my home decor pieces....

Displaying bracelet with Blueberri Beads...."Hare"...

One of my designs is a necklace using the "Boxing Hares" by Blueberri Beads...Caroline's stunning silhouettes raku ceramics

I used Artisan Lampwork Beads, Pyrite Gemstones, Czech Bellflowers, Sterling Silver Bead Caps, Crystal Spacer Beads, and Ceramic Raku

Here's some more Bunnies....plates I just love!

This is the time of the year that I love living in the Desert (Lake Havasu City, AZ) as the extreme heat leaves and the days because beautiful and pleasant.  We have the most amazing Sunsets and Sunrises.  October seems to be one of the busiest months of the year for our little town.  Octoberfest, Pumkpin Patch, Boat and Jet Ski events, Run to the Sun (the most beautiful Classic Cars), Halloween on Main Street and many more outdoor activities.

So perfect timing of Rita's Octoberfest!


So I had to make some October Jewelry:

Artisan Lampwork Bead Pumpkins by , Swarovski Crystals and Gold Plated Lever Back Earrings.  Isn't this color sooo soft and yummy!

Gemstone Acorns Earrings with Vintja Copper Pewter Bead Caps - 14mm Large Earth Toned Organic Agate Rondelles Gemstones - Matte Finish Acid Etched 

"Mr Skully"
Pewter Skull by Green Girl Studio a gift from Andrew Thornton.  Artisan Lampwork Beads by Mandrel 2 on Etsy, Brass Bead Cap, Swarovski Crystals, Czech Glass Fire Polished Crystals and soft Suede Leather from Nina's Designs

A pair of Crystal Skull Earrings

Fabulous Sunflowers from my Niece Rozzie's garden.  Such a different color!

And the most important and special event for this Fall 2014 was the birth of my Great Niece - REECE JEAN!!!  She was born in August and this is her 1st Octoberfest/Halloween.  She is just so precious!!!

Pumpkin Patch Time - My Niece Rozlynn and Great Niece Reece

One Cute Little Goblin!!!

 My HANDSOME "TANGO"  says bye for now!!!


Thank you for stopping by!  I'll leave you with one of our gorgeous Sunsets by our local Photographer:
