My Favorite Things
In the Blog Ring this week on HandmadeArtists, the topic is My Favorite Things!  This will be such fun!!!  It's been a crazy busy week...  I wish I had more time for this one!
I visited John's shop first...  RasmussenGems.  This is a tough one!  John's shop has over 160 items in it!  What to choose, what to  choose ............ 
I finally selected this stunning red garnet and gold pendant.  The clarity and light in the stone just captivated me.  You can read more about this beautiful piece here.
Then, I visited Debbi's shop, YankeeBurrowCreations, to show you this adorable crochet bunny.  I just love handmade toys - they're the ones that seem to last forever and get handed down and played with.  This little bunny is so precious.  I can just see it being a little girls best friend and the one thing she wouldn't go to sleep without!  YankeeBurrowsCreations has a wonderful assortment of things - scarves and purses and decor items - well you will just have to check it out for yourself!

And for those of you that enjoy a glass of wine with a meal, don't you just love this Lampwork Bead Wine Stopper?  This is from BrooklynBeadGoddess - the lady that plays with molten glass and fire!  I love that the beads she chose for this piece are kind of wine colored.  It's just so pretty!
