Butterscotch Please ! Vintage Amber Bakelite Beads Recycle New @ Kirsten Tannenbaum Earrings by Mom

Not long ago, a local friend approached me with a recycling vintage to modern project ~ my favorite ! 

This was a special request, to bring some old family heirloom beads back to life in a new creation!  So, voila!
Enjoy seeing what I did with the lovely beads ! 
You say amber, I say butterscotch, please!
Working yet to complete the final project, I have thoroughly enjoyed this opportunity to make what was once old new !
Recycled beads, once again, with a history all of their own !

or so I've read!   So, I guess it's time to to get ready with the glow in the dark baubles, the Snickers, and the snackeroos!
Other years, I gave out books, but alas, now I've given up on all that.  I assume the school librarians will take up the slack there, correct?
I've had my own real life Charlotte, making a beautiful web in the front garden this past month!
Be sure to read Charlotte's Web to your kids while you can !

Here are the Glow in the Dark as Spooky as Mom can get Pearl & Gold Filgree Halloween Bauble earrings ! You can find them in my site on eBay !  

And how about these very dangly blown glass pumpkin earrings !?
Bright and Sparkling and Very Pumpkin Patch Ahoy !

For the traditional, there are the Onyx Black Stone Teardrops, Sterling Silver!

There are also some Smokey Quartz and Carnelian fire light delight pendants and Key Chains to be had.... And just wait until you see the Labradorite stacks !

So, get the bowls ready, hear them say Trick or Treat !  And watch the Wizard of Oz and the Great Pumpkin again !
Happy Halloween!

The Frost is On the Lingon Berries

When I was younger in Alaska, I loved to pick berries! When the first frosts came, the little round green leaves of the low bush cranberries darkened. With this cold, the tiny fruit which these little plants bore ripened.

~ The northern low bush cranberry or Lingon Berry grew very close to the ground. Picking these berries was tough business ~ as you would stain your clothes or destroy the tundra undergrowth by kneeling ~ So much careful bending was had in plucking gently the tender tiny fruit.

The berries are perfect for muffins or atop flapjacks. Some make jam, if they have enough berries. This was my dream as I picked in the cold. But, alas, the pail was taken by my father for his tiny holiday liquor industry!

So, in honour of the LingonBerries, which I still dream of enjoying in little muffins, I created some natural freshwater & glass pearl earrings ~ Enjoy them !
Fortunately, I rec'd a beautiful treasure for my recent birthday. More than a quart of Alaskan blueberry jam! These blueberries were taken in the shadows of Denali, a mountain I hope to visit someday.
