Storage Room – complete

I love posted home reno projects on my blog so we can look back and see all of the improvements we made, and as well to have everything dated.  We just finished our back storage room – it’s quite fancy for a storage room – My husband did such an awesome job!

We have so much camping & outdoor gear – it’s so nice to have it all organized & tidy.

Crochet Blanket – Vintage Ripple Pattern

I just love creating, I love working with my hands, I find it very challenging and rewarding.

I learned to crochet as a kid.  My mother taught me as a young girl, and I must say my cabbage patch dolls had a very sophisticated wardrobe including very chic and one of a kind ponchos.

I recently picked up a crochet hook again.  It came right back.  I made myself a blanket first to test out a pattern, yarn, size etc.  I’m in love with Loops & Threads from Michaels.

Here is my third blanket.  It was a birthday gift for my very special niece Ashley (Sweet Smash) for her 13th birthday.  I found this pattern online – Vintage Ripple Pattern.  A very kind person posted an old pattern her grandmother used to use.  (see link at the bottom).

I hope my niece feels comforted every time she cuddles up in it:

The colours are amazing!  I picked this colour “Cascade” by Loops & Threads because of the blues and earthy complimenting colours.  It reminds me of the sea/ocean/nautical.

Shoot me an email if you would like help with this pattern – brandyunruh@yahoo.ca

Custom order – Beach Glass Pendants adorned with Swarovski Birthstone Channel Charms

A special order for a Dar – she’s going to surprise her lovely mother & sisters on their vacation in Florida.

Aren’t these lovely?  A piece of history from Lake Ontario adorned with Swarovski Birthstone channel charms displayed on Sterling Silver Chains accented with a white Swarovski pearl bead.

Top Left – Lt. Amethyst – June

Top Right – Emerald – May

Bottom Left – Topaz – November

Bottom Right – Siam – Jan (Garnet)

I took this picture with my cell phone so it’s not the best quality, but it gives you an idea of personalized gifts.

These are handcrafted, I drill all beach glass beads, and I make all of my own Sterling silver jump rings and head pins & assemble Sterling Silver necklaces.

I really hope they love them and I hope they have a great time in Florida 🙂

 


Custom Necklace – Port Dalhousie Beach Glass

This is an exciting one – Colleen wants to give a special gift to a special friend – a piece of beach glass her friend collected from Port Dalhousie – Lake Ontario.

Truly a unique piece – unique & rare colour (sea foam green) with very cool ridges.  After drilling, I was pleasantly surprised at how stunning it looked accented with a Swarovski Pearl – it’s very artistic – and I love love it.  Beautifully displayed on a Sterling Silver Chain with Sterling Silver findings.

I hope Colleen’s friend loves it too.
