Shades of Antique Roses and Pearls inspired me to name this necklace "Grandma's Rose Garden".
I used lots of glass seed beads in shades of pink along with mauve cultured potato pearls. It looks very soft and romantic!
I kind of liked the way the crocheted earrings with the shells turned out so I made a pair to go with this necklace. I think the delicate look of them goes especially well with this necklace.
There's a story behind today's quote!
. I bought a little hand painted heart shaped wall hanging that said
"If Grandma's were roses, I'd pick you."
for my Grandma when she was in the nursing home and it hung on her door. When she passed away, unknown to me, my Mom kept it. Not long ago my Grandaughter gave it to me. I never imagined when I bought it that someday I would be a Grandma and it would be hanging on my wall.
