Somebody stop me!

Ok, I said I'd get myself out at least once a week.  But seriously, I must be stopped!  Yesterday I went antiquing.  Well, I say I went antiquing.  Really my oldest and I just walked around an antique mall that is across the street from the little one's gymnastics.  Still.  It was somewhere I'd never been.  And will probably not go back. 

I mean, I do like antiques.  And I see people finding super cool stuff all the time, but it is something I'm able to pass on when it comes to parting with my money. 

I even took pics as evidence...

 I was a band geek.  I played the clarinet from 6th grade through 10th grade.  

And these caught my attention because they are so familiar. 

So, that's two new things in less than a week.  I hope I remember next week that I'm supposed to be doing something out and about.  Old habits are hard to break.  

In other news, I have been a busy bee in the shop.  I guess in my mind Fall is also synonymous with charm necklaces, because I am on a roll! I made charm necklaces around this same time last year too.  Hmmmm curious.  Anyway, I'm finding myself making charms that are Fall inspired.  And putting them together with an aspiring thought in mind.  So far I have "embrace change" and "fall gathering".  If you Instagram and follow me, you'll have seen some WIP shots.  Terrible lighting and grainy from my phone.  But you'll get the idea.  If you want to follow me I'm amy___nicole .  That's with 3 underscores.  

Have I told you how much I love Instagram?  I do.  I follow some pretty cool peeps.  It's an awesome way to get to know artists and patrons of the arts through pictures.  And speaking of patrons of the arts.  I follow the ultimate patroness of the arts, who everyday gives us a picture of not only what she is wearing but "who" she is wearing.  The best of the best on this woman.  It is the coolest thing to see.  This woman must look like a million bucks everyday!  So inspiring to see jewelry art worn so well.  

Anywho, I better go clean something.  Have a great weekend all!  I hope to have new work to share some time next week.  :)


  1. curious, is this for sale?

    1. Yes! you need to see better pictures of it though. The stone is variscite, a minty green. I think you'll love it! I'll send you an email soon.

  2. Yea...I'm not one for antiquing either. I do love to look, but those stores have gotten so pricy!

    1. yeah, the place was hot too, so that was a turn off. Maybe when the weather cools down more I'll give it another look.
