Couple More Marbles Not Lost..

Yes - more marble pendants that started out here...
Yellow with Czech crystals.
White with cathedral beads
I made these a couple of months ago, took pics, started the post then put it on the back burner.   The white one has already been gifted, and may just keep the yellow one myself. 
Linking up with "Mosaic Monday"

Spent some time doing Winter clean up in the courtyard this morning.  Still a few weeks to go, but looking forward to getting some flowers potted to add pretty color. Looked back at some pictures I took this time last year and my azaleas were in  bloom.  3/19 is less than 2 weeks away  - looking forward to a repeat performance.
Doing the "Happy Dance" Daylight Savings Time starts this weekend!!! More daylight!!
What ever your plans, hope you are enjoying the weekend and looking forward to a great week ahead!

As always, beautiful pieces!
I was looking at some photos from last spring too. We were a little farther along than this year which is odd since we had such a warm winter. It's been a changeable March - freezing every am and often in the 50-60's in the afternoon.

I love this! I have a few old marbles from my great grandma that I love to do something with them.

Our Hopeful Home said...

Both very pretty Glenda. I don't think I've ever seen marble pendants before....I, too, will be happy about the light, but not about the loss of an hour tonight! I mean, a girl needs her beauty sleep, right?

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

I sure do like this idea with the marbles. Happy to hear you might be keeping one for yourself, that's always hard to do.
We're having some nice spring weather here and I sure don't mind losing an hour of sleep tonight in exchange for longer days:-)

SavoringTime in the Kitchen said...

We need all the marbles we can get these days :) I have two big bags of marbles from my mother that she must have bought at a rummage sale years and years ago. I have put them in a glass hurricane just to enjoy looking at them.

My Maine Blog said...

What a unique idea and so pretty too.Brings back a lot of memories of the hours I used to spend playing marbles all summer long when I was a little kid. Where did those days go.
And now I'm going to be your newest follower.

I think it is a very clever and pretty idea for the marbles. I am so happy about the time change, it will be nice to have the longer daylight hours. Have a happy week ahead!

How beautiful! I'm loving daylight savings time, too! Hugs!

Vee said...

Very pretty...and I agree with you on it!

Pretty, Glenda. Yes, I'm glad DST is back, but we have sure had a dreary day today to start it off. I remember how pretty your courtyard looked last spring. I look forward to seeing it with blooms again. Have a good week. laurie

Lorrie said...

Very pretty jewelry. Yes DST is here - I don't enjoy the change in spring, I'd sooner have the extra hour of sleep in the fall. But I do like the extra daylight!

Ingmarie We said...

Really lovly jewelry. Have a nice week.

Sue said...

Keep the yellow pretty for summer! I have been surprised to see so many on Facebook complaining about the time change. I love it! I get so depressed when it is dark by 4:30 in the afternoon. I love having time after my husband gets home to be outside.

Patty said...

very lovely. I think marbles are great!

Anonymous said...

So beautiful, Glenda!

I always start out with mixed feelings about Daylight Savings Time, but then after a day of adjustment I really enjoy that extra bit of daylight at the end of the day.:-)

Sue said...

Well, you haven't lost your marbles (Tee Hee), you've just made them better! Love that yellow one, Glenda. Your pals must love when you gift them your creations. :-)

The Old Parsonage said...

Oh they are both beautiful! I'd take either, but the white is my favorite!


Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Love, love the necklace! They're both gorgeous! Looking forward to the update on the flowers.
fondly ~Lynne~

Very very pretty. I love the shadow the pendant makes too.

Our party is on at:

Please join us if you have time. Have a great weekend :)

Christine Wallace said...

Hi Glenda,
I love the idea of your marble pendant necklaces. They came out so beautifully too.
I too am so ready for Spring. We had unusually long winter that seems to not want to go away. Have a great weekend my friend. And don't let those little plastic cards cloud your day. LOL

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

Very pretty and elegant pieces. Have a great day. Tammy

Mary said...

These are very attractive - look quite perfect to wear with Easter/Spring outfits........hopefully warm days will arrive so we can put the boots and coats away again!


Claudia said...

These bring back memories! I remember, probably in my early teens, marbles being used for jewelry. It was very popular - somehow the marble was heated and little cracks appeared. Your pieces are beautiful!

Thanks so much for joining in this week!


Susan Freeman said...

Very pretty Glenda!

Big Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
