Lots fo New Goodies!!

Okay I'm ending the week with a bunch of new goodies, so I'm just going to get right to it!! On EBAY:

Luthien, I gotta say, I thought of you when I made the dragon pendant! Love the way it looks like she's climbing up the watch parts! The bracelet is another cool piece, I love all the vintage watch parts mixed with the glass faces and buttons! and then the steampunk cufflinks are always a cool staple. I put those up as fixed price, so if you want 'em, grab em!
Okay and now for ETSY!

I adore the owl ring! I see more and more girls with flowers in their hair, which I love! I had those vintage enameled flowers and thought how cool to add a steampunk-ness center! and voila! New hair clips are born!
Thank you Lulu who purchased the pair of french bee earrings that I posted yesterday! I loved those!! They will be on their way to you in the morning! xo Michele

Hope you enjoy them!! I'm off to sit on the deck, read a book and drink some wine :o) Sounds like the perfect way to unwind from the rabbit hole :o) xo Michele

I think I've become the mad hatter!

The last post I put a teaser to the new Tim Burton version of Alice In Wonderland, which shows Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter (yum yum) this is what I think I have become totally mad!

Yesterday I was in a huge hurry because I needed to be at the hospital by 9 am for a ct scan on my chest (those of you who have been around awhile will remember that there was a lung cancer scare last year when they found scar tissue on my lung but of couse we didn't know that for months! so anyway they wanted to do a follow up a year later just to make sure nothing has changed. Okay now that you are all caught up with the story I'll go on lol) so I'm racing down the side road to the hospital, I get there at 9 on the dot which is no small feat, I sign in and wait to be registered. The young lady comes over and takes me to her cubical type of spot and has me answer all of the questions which she types into the computer. I give her the paper work that the doctor has mailed to me and she is very pleased that I have doctors orders. She get me all registered and then sends me down to radiology, when I sign in again and give her the other 2 copies of the docotors orders. I am told to have a seat in their waiting room now. After a few minutes the woman who checked me in calls out my name. I feel like I've won the lottery! Wooo Hoooo! Yay! That's Me!!! I'm going to get right in and right out of here and can get back on with the million other things I have going on!!! So I jump up and say yes! She says, Michele? I'm walking toward here...let's get this show on the road! Then she says, "Did you realize you are a month early?" WHAT??!!! That can't be!! I dig out my paper work and look at the date...No it says right here the 24th!! She says yes, dear the 24th of August! 8-24-09!!!!! ROFL!!! Yup I've totally lost my mind at this point!

I even said to you Luthien that I didn't know if my blog would be ready in time for the party! That's because I was thinking it was TODAY! I mean my dates are just really messed up at this point lol! Sheesh!! So I should be able to join the party NEXT Saturday!! YAY!!

Okay now for the good news! I managed in my madness to get two new items in my etsy store. I know that's not much lol! But it's a start right?? I have one more that I'll list tomorrow. Here are the two that are there now:

I'm going to try and catch up on some house cleaning today. We have also had a bathroom disaster where it's leaking water...we think from under the wax seal. That's not the bad part. The bad part is it's the 2nd floor bathroom so it leaked on the ceiling and the water was oozing out of the grout and one of the ceramic tiles cracked...are you beginning to see why I've become the mad hatter??? LOL Have a great Saturday everyone!! xo Michele

I'm Late, I'm Late....!!

I feel like the rabbit from Alice and Wonderland! Running around looking at my watch!! I've had another full day and just now finished loading up the three auctions to ebay!! Which I never do lol! They are always scheduled! Anyway, I know there's a few of you that I haven't even had a chance to email back yet today! No worries I haven't forgotten!! My husband actually even made dinner so that I could finish this up! He's a sweetie, right?! Okay so without any more blabbing on my part, here are the 3 pieces I put up for auction tonight on ebay:

All Marie Antoinette inspired! I'm really into this whole french Paris queen thing! Let me know what you think of the new pieces! I'm so sorry I have to run down a rabbit hole again, but I'm hungry and it's 8:33 and I still haven't had dinner yet! Maybe I'll run into the Mad Hatter and a teapot? xo Michele

Tonight I have two new things for ebay! One is a really cool ring! Beetle Queen! I think she might still have that grunge, rocker edge to her?

Next is a vintage enameled peacock, with a vintage shoe clip also in the mixture!

Wine Rockin Weekend

Hope everyone made it through the weekend unscathed! I'm not so sure on my account LOL! I don't think I have drank that much wine...in...well lets just say EVER!! The hills of Missouri where the wineries are located are gorgeous! Here is a view from the winery Montelle that we were at:

I forgot my camera so this photo is from Mo.gov In the fall when the trees are changing Missouri is a gorgeous state to drive up and down, twisting through the back roads, stopping to sip some wine at one of the vineyards.
We also went to see Def Leopard, Poison and Cheap Trick at the Verizon ampitheater last night! No cameras were allowed but I'm sure there's pics floating around out there..I saw the flashes...you know who you are...LOL! It was another awesome time! Rock on!

So anyway, now you know why I was unable to post last night ;o)
Here's what I managed to get done for ebay for tonight though:

One starts right at 8 central and the other at 8:05 so that they don't both end at the same time. Have a great night everyone...I'm flying out the door for Buffalo Wild Wings 50 cent wing night lol! xo Michele

Bracelet & Earrings

I've wanted to do the steampunk diva bracelet for a while now, the problem always seemed to be that I never had enough faces made up in advance! But I finally go it done and I love how it came out! My little glass faces mixed in with vintage rhinestone earrings, buttons, glass buttons and typewriter keys! I'm hoping to get some more made soon :o)

I also am putting up some Marie Antoinette inspired earrings.

Both pieces will be available on ebay tonight at 8 pm central time! Hope everyone has a great weekend! We have another birthday party to go to, Wineries if the weather holds out on sunday, and Monday another concert--this time it's Def Leopard, Cheap Trick and Poison! Wooo Hoooo! Total 80's!! LOL! I have the camera battery all charged ;o) Now I'm off to the pool! xo Michele

Geisha Divas

I absolutely love these geishas! At first I was going to make earrings out of them, that seemed the logical thing to do right? But they are some kind of metal and are more heavy than what I like to make earrings (I have old 44 year old ears so I know heavy things make them droop lol). So then I decided well why not make a set out of them? So I made a pendant and a ring :o) I think they turned out really nice! Both will be available on ebay tonight at 8 pm central time. Lots more pictures on ebay too :o) xo Michele

Kissing Pigs

Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!! We went to a pig roast for my Aunt's 70th birthday and even though it was so hot and then it down poured we still had a good time! The pig was delicious! and it was so fun to catch up with my family that I don't get to see as often as I would like! Here's a pic of my dad being silly kissing the pig before he carved it up:

Sorry I didn't post on Thurs. Miss copycat is getting to me. She quit posting them on ebay, but is now listing them on Etsy. Sigh. You know I think the thing that bothers me the most is that she doesn't even say: Inspired by Michele Lynch. If she did that I would feel soooo much better about the whole thing. Well anyway, I'm not going to give alot of time to that little piggie, but thought you would all like to know it's still on my mind and she still has not stopped.
Sunday I vegged. I actually just read all day. No work at all! It was so nice! I'm reading the Barnes & Nobel recommended The Physick Book Of Deliverance Dane. It's about a girl who is getting her masters in history when she goes to her grandma's house to close it up and discovers a key with a name Deliverance Dane on it. She then starts to discover things about the witch trials from Salem. It's by author Katherine Howe and I believe it's her first book. It's pretty good good so far. Not a rush out and get it, but maybe a library read?
Okay so I also do have 2 new items for ebay tonight ;o) I listed a new ring, that is an angel:

and this pendant that is a crab! I thought she was perfect for those summer outfits!

Have a great night everyone and yes I'm reopening my etsy store as soon as I can! xo Michele

Mud Festival

Hope everyone had a great Fourth of July!! I thought I would get to blog about all of this on Sunday, but that day flew by too!! I'm tired so I'm going to keep this fairly short if I can!! Saturday we woke up to pouring rain, which of course canceled the parade for us. We decided to go to breakfast and fortunately the rain let up by the time we were leaving so we headed on over to the fair that our town puts on every year. There are carnival rides and games, inflatable kids things, a magic show, food, food and more food...did I mention fair food? LOL...this is what Michele likes...fair food...red beans and rice, jambalya, corn dogs, funnel cakes, fried oreos, those thin sliced potatoe chip things...okay I gotta stop before I faint from thinking of it all! Where was I? oh yeah and besides the fireworks what most people look forward to are the concerts! Earlier in the day one of our favorite local bands Trixie Delight was suppose to play. I'm not sure if they got to or not because that's when it was pouring. So after getting some snack food we scouted out a spot to sit and wait for Sister Hazel to come on stage...and of course it poured again. But we're not afraid of rain right? (I have pictures that my son took of Sister Hazel but he hasn't had time to upload them off his camera for me)

Sister Hazel was amazing...played right through the rain and this beautiful full arch rainbow appeared. The band was available after the concert for autographs and they took pictures with fans. I thought they were an awesome band :o)

After Sister Hazel the crowd was pumped for Gavin Degraw. The crowd had doubled I think by this time. We were close to the front so we were all really packed in there. The people that we had around us were fun and everyone was just having a really good time. I mean here we all were sitting in the mud, getting poured on several times but you have fair food and good music, what more could you want right? Degraw got to about the fourth song and it is really raining by this time again (but we're all so soaked none of it even makes a difference anymore) any way across the sky there is a flash of lightening :o( We all know what that means at an outdoor concert. Party is over. The city official shut the fair down for everyones safety. Gavin Degraw apologized which of course it was not his fault, you can't control the weather. All up concert goers picked up our soggy blankets, lawn chairs, coolers and what not and did the slip n slide through the mud back to our cars. Unfortunately there were not even any fireworks on the fourth for us because of that lightening (they didn't want the people there in danger who would come to see them). So that was my fourth of July LOL...and a fun time was had by all ;o)

Sorry I got this posted so late! I was waiting for the pictures and then I figured I'd better post it anyway and when I get the pics I'll just add them in another post! I also did add two items to ebay last night I just never got to the post ;o) Here they are:

The Queen Bee so reminds me of Marie Antoinette!! I think it's the way the wings are split that remind me of the old fashioned dresses. I'm not sure what it was lol, but I made sure this little bee was very french ;o) The earrings my youngest Zach found for me at an antique store! There was a pin and a necklace and he said, look mom you could make earrings out of these! and how right he was!! Hope you enjoy these and I'm hoping I can get everything back on track ;o) xo Michele
