Shamrock

In the stash I was given not long ago, there was a shamrock pendant/charm in a little box with a card stating that it was a real, preserved shamrock, souvenir Old Bushmills and Old Bushmills is etched on the back. So curiosity got the best of me and I did a little google work - turns out it is a distillery in North Ireland dating back hundreds of years. The pendant/charm does not appear to be very old - just a souvenir someone picked up on a trip abroad. Dug around in my supplies, found a glass, green heart, a few czech glass beads..........
and finished ! How about that - A souvenir from across "The Pond" and I have never been there. I know a 4 leaf clover is suppose to bring you good luck, but don't know about a shamrock. I have a whole lot of Irish in me, so maybe it will bring me good luck also.

Yeah! I know - I am playing around with jewelry and on the computer a lot these days, but that is what I do when it is Hot outside, and I am sitting around waiting for others to do what they are suppose to be doing, and/or waiting on phone calls, etc.. Well...........You know what I am talking about.

The luck of the Irish will be with you whether it's a shamrock or a four leaf clover! I like your jewelry creation, Glenda. Stay cool!

I'm an Irish lass too so I love this piece of jewellery. You did a great job and the photographs are fabulous too.

I'd send you some of our winter weather but I'm not ready for summer yet. If it's going to be anything like your summer I hope it stays winter all year long!

Best wishes and happy week,
Natasha @ 5 Minutes Just for Me.

Very cool!

I like how you used that big lobster clasp in the front to hold the "charms and stuff"......

Hi Glenda,
So happy you are getting to create this week. The fruits of your labor are soooo pretty! Keep up the beautiful work and try to stay cool. It is "tres chaud" down here in the panhandle of Florida!

That turned out really pretty...I love it with the green, glass heart. I think it is fun to have something from a place you haven't been to!

Still hot...no rain...I'm trying to remember that at least the sun shines in the windows and it stays light a long time. Winter is so dark and depressing, but I've had enough of this heat!

Love the necklace Glenda! How cool to find out so much more about your charm...you gotta love the internet right?! I think a shamrock from Ireland is absolutely great luck!
Thanks for the heads up on my dollhouse. I'm going to be selling mine because it is really LARGE! And I just don't have a room that would do it justice. I really wish I did because I'd start collecting these babies! They're really wonderful! What will you do with yours? Vanna
