Update 3/11
The finished product! I added a tiara along the top to finish off the jewels. I really think it adds a grand allure to the piece. I'll be listing it later today on my web boutique in Vintage Finds. www.vintagerosecollection.com
I hope you like it too :)




I'll be in my studio all week painting up a storm. I haven't picked up a paint brush since christmas, (shame on you Jo! However I have set aside some time to do just that...This latest project is an old window pane I had kicking around and never got around to doing anything with it...I added some jewels to the top for sparkle..It's a fun look!




Great News! I have a NEW LOOK to my website thats coming very soon...I'm not quite done tweaking; Ill let you all know when its finished...The above is just a sneak peak...


Have a wonderful week my angel bloggers :)

Hi Jo Jo ~

I miss talking to you! Lovely post, that is an incredible project you are working on. I can't wait to see the new look for your site. I am working on updating my site too, it won't be done for awhile still. I guess we're all thinking the same...so many of us need a change with the spring weather upon us. I'll try to write you soon! Take care doll!

Dear Jo,
I never expect anything but beauty when I come visit you.
I love the window (and that doesn't even say how much).
Looking forward to seeing your new website, I'm sure it will be everything the dreamers of the world can imagine and more.
You've been away a while. I've missed you sweetheart and your joyful enthusiasm for life.
