helping nie nie recovery

Today I whipped myself into a frenzy and finished up two projects. First, this 15" Swarovski crystal necklace that will be auctioned off over at Today's Creative Blog to raise funds for Nie Nie Recovery. Please bid! The winner will not only get this lovely necklace (in what I think are perfectly sweet Nie colours) but also some fantastic gifts and goodies in their package!





I also finished beading (button-ing) Loopy's faded denim jeans. All those white buttons (and on the back pocket too) and I didn't even make a dent in my button jar. I could keep going, but the pants are getting heavy. The Sulky brand mylar holographic thread gives the jeans lots of sparkle.

Just a little wave-off as my public service to all of you... wait 'til The House Bunny arrives on DVD if you want to see it. I took Loopy and The Fan to see it on the weekend. There were some cute moments, but it's no Legally Blonde. 'nuf said. You can thank me later.

Love the necklace and the jeans!!! Gonna go over to Today's Creative blog to check out the bidding.

As for House Bunny, haven't seen it yet. Probably won't until it comes out on DVD - but it does look pretty funny - in a cheesy sort of way.

Your necklace is beautiful...you are such a sweetie. I can't believe you paid to see The House Bunny...it looks quite derfish.

Considering your button box floweth over, I'll send up some little jeans for embellishment. Thanks for the heads up! LOL!

This is a little random but I love that dragonfly pictured with the necklace. Do you know where you got it from?

I second Mrs. G's observation on The House Bunny. But cool jeans--very clever idea!

Ashley, that little glass dragonfly has a sad story... The Fan got me the cutest glass hornet-catching device that hung out by my pergola but it met an untimely fate last summer. The dragonfly that adorned it is all I have left of that snazzy contraption.

Love the necklace, but I think I already won TWO other auctions...oops, didn't mean to do that!

and thanks for the psa on the show. Thought the trailers looked good, and hubby and I have been doing the deep voiced 'memory' talk ever since the trailer, guess it might have been the best part of the movie and I already saw it!
