Yay!  Love BTW 'cause it means Friday is right around the corner.  Even better?  I am taking tomorrow off of work and my honey comes home from a looooong trip.  And if I play my cards right, I might get to sneak out to Torch Night Thursday night.  Sigh.  Fingers crossed.  So!  Here is what's on my table at the moment.  One project I promised - a charm bracelet for my kids' school annual auction fund raiser.  The school mascot is a dolphin and the colors are green and white.  I am hoping to put something together with those elements without being too costume-y.  I have two projects in mind for the buttons - the big mother of pearl ones I want to make into earrings.  Maybe a little big.  We'll see.

The little ones I want to string together with some of the cool waxed linen I won from the gals over at A Jewelry Accord.  I've never used it before, but I found a great book at the library on button jewelry (by Sara Withers) so I am inspired.  In the upper left corner you can see my latest Floridity purchase.  It's from her Erudite collection and totally reminded me of giraffes - my favorite animal - HAD TO HAVE THEM. Luckily they are not domesticated otherwise I would have a couple running around the back yard.  It would be fun wouldn't it?  Check out the rest of the BTW pics over on Flickr.  Have a great rest of the week!
