Fini ! Maybe

Finally finished a necklace that I started working on over a week ago. Pulled the supplies out and just never got back to it until yesterday. Could not decided whether to use chain, or beads, so ended up using some of both. May still redo it, as used a strand of vintage faux pearls that are not glass and they just don't have the depth/weight needed to go with the pendant. I rarely use plastic, but was to lazy at the time, to make a strand out of glass ones with the gold tone head pins. Anyway.........................

Finished (Maybe)
I used PicMonkey to edit these photos - lightened the first 3, added watermarks to a couple of them and darkened the edge on the last one.
Several bloggers have talked about using PicMonkey to edit their photos and how much they liked it, so decided to give it a try. Played around with it a bit yesterday, and think I am going to like it a lot!
Why did I darken the edges in the above photo, you ask? Because I was trying to hide the lipton tea bottle reflecting in the mirror in the top left corner. :-D

Linking up with Debra @ "Vintage Inspiration

Off to put another load of laundry in the dryer - so much excitement going on around here. N ot !!

Ooo...the tassel necklace, very pretty! Isn't it funny how when we take pictures we don't see the "real life" things until it is too late! I always seem to have a lamp cord or a coffee cup in mine!

Not much going on here either. I took this morning and cleaned off my desk doing all those little phone calls and package mailings that I'd been putting off. I hope to write a blog post before the day is over, but decided I'd better do some "visiting" first. Hot, hot, hot here today...but storms forecast for the next several days. Ugh.

I love it Glenda. Even the back is pretty and I really like the tassel.
How clever, hiding the reflection with the darker edges. It looks really good. I'm going to like PicMonkey too; so many fun toys to play with.

Love it! The back is as pretty as the front.

I've been using PicMonkey for a while but I'm not sure I like it. I've had problems with the site freezing on me and now I'm having an issue with editing photos I've already edited on there. Like if I forget something and want to go back.

I think it's pretty (and the back is gorgeous!)
