There's Turkey, and then There's Turkey ~ Kirsten Tannenbaum Earrings by Mom Beads come from Every Where !

Not long ago, a very generous nephew
brought me some beads from a far away land !
Yes, from Turkey!  I was immediately fascinated with the petite
offerings, like a peddler opening his pack !  The little collection of beads
rolled out, and I examined them closely ...
Since they arrived, they have been in a bowl waiting for me to make something special from them, and now here they are, making
their petite debut on this blog ~ in the form of, what else, earrings !! ~ and one dangle!
                                                   The Aurora Borealis Swarovski Crystals compliment the gold beads & Turquoise

                                                              GoldStone, appropriately accented with gold beads !

                                                              A fun dangle pull, accented with Art Nouveau Leaf Flowers

                                                                These look big here, but they are so sweet and petite !

Turkey Cranberries PineCones & All the Stuffing ! Kirsten Tannenbaum Earrings Recycling Green Holiday Creations!

Oh What a Beautiful Rainy Morning !
This shower is exactly what Oklahoma needed !  The oaks have been
so thirsty ...
Without a good rain before frost time, so many vital trees here in Green Country
(Shhhhh, don't tell anybody how beautiful we have it here in North Eastern Oklahoma !)
would be stressing the winter.   This fall has been So Lovely !   Picture Perfect as they say ! 
So,  Cranberries are still on my mind... And Sweet Potatoes.  Back to Cranberries... 
My daughter made some fragrant fresh zesty Cranberry Orange
last night for a company lunch...  I cannot wait to have our own in a few days!

Here is a Turkey and Cranberry Necklace Brooch Bracelet & Earrings Set I put together which is up starting at .99 cents ! on eBay ! 
Check it out !
