Anklets, a Chipmunk and a Dress Form

Cryptic title I know but I have several things I wanted to share with you today. 
First, I got a dress form a couple years ago. She was pretty beat up, hey for $3.00 what do you expect. She didn't have a stand and I really wanted her to have a stand. 
So, the joy of having a carpenter husband is that when I ask for things like this they show up eventually.

This little guy scared me when I was sitting at the beading table the other day. 
He climbed the screen door!

So cute, but please stay outside

What have I been working on?
Tons of anklets :-)

This first anklet is cool, it's a necklace...

It's an anklet...

It's a necklace :-)

Another anklet

Fringy shells

So flirty and cute

You can stamp an initial or a heart, star, flower or I could just hammer the little copper disc. 

Looks really cute layered with the fringy one too :-)

Seahorse, Chalcedony and pearls could it get any more summery?

This one has one of my soldered, hammered copper rings. Love it!

Well that's all for now.
Hope you are having a great weekend. 
We are potty training my almost 3 year old so I am sure it will be interesting  :-D

Hi Shannon,
Love the dress stand, the post your hubby made suits it perfectly. The little chimpmunk is so cute but I agree stay out side!
Love all of the anklets. The first one could be for a man or a woman.

Love your dress form! You really got a great find for $3.

I love your dress form! I've wanted one for a long time now but the vintage ones are priced too high for me. Lucky you to have such a good handyman!

I love your anklets. I made several for summer a couple years ago but they were not a hit so I stopped making them.

That is mighty convenient to have a carpenter on staff! The form looks great :) We don't get chipmunks around here- totally adorable. And I like the anklets - I haven't thought of anklets in ages!

We get lots of chippies (as we call them) at our place and they are very, very 'cheeky' ... quite bold. Yesterday I was standing at the front door to unlock it and one decided to run right up over my foot!? Love the dress form. I've been wanting one for the longest time, but agree they are so pricey! I keep hoping I'll find one at a tag sale. love all the anklets - great set
