An afternoon at Rend Lake.

Rend Lake is a pretty good size lake here in Southern Illinois. We went to check it out yesterday for awhile. The dam was really going over. Here is my son Jordan standing at the bottom rail. I always have to catch a picture of him when he's not looking! That whole bottom part is completely flooded. There are rocks down there and you can go down there and fish. There is a guy down there, at the bottom of the picture here, that's as close as you can get right now.

Here he is again, not looking at me!

I have a video to. I'll post it later.

Are you noticing a theme here with him?

Oh and my lovely hubby! Yep..he's...mine.

Jordan took this one. He took a great picture!

This is usually a big hill that goes down towards the water.
This is what a car ride does to a puppy. He's so sleepy!! Hope everyone has a great day!!

Makin some new jewelry.

Making some new jewelry lately. This first one is a vintage key that I made a wrapped birds nest around it. I love blue and brown together.

I gotta work on taking better pictures of jewelry. Only after looking at these do I realize that it doesn't show the rest of it. Sorry, it was a goob moment!

The green one here is made of an old necklace I bought in a jar of buttons. They are glass and I took it apart and re-worked it into this.

They are all from that one necklace. Except for the wire and the gold chain, that was from Hobby Lobby!

Not bad for a .25 cent jar of buttons. I got a black one too but I'm still working on it. I'll show it when I'm done of course! Hope everyone has a great day! The sun is out!!!

Theme Thursday...

This is my entry for http://themethursday.wordpress.com. The theme was girls. So I used an old picture from my stash of photos. ( I really have quite a few to share I just need to get my computer in to get worked on. But that means I have to do without one!) This pic was gosh maybe 2 1/2 inches at most. This is atc size. The background is done with layers of paint, then sanded off a little, then some stamps added. Of course the page number 211 adds up to 4 which is how many girls are in the pic!
