A Thousand Flowers

     While we were stationed in Germany, we had the opportunity to take a day trip to Venice.  If you haven't been, know that the bus ride was 5 hours EACH way and we had an 8, 5 and 3 year old on the adventure. 

The road trip WAS the adventure.  Enough said. :)


Anyhoo...it's this piece that reminds me of Venice.


    
  It's called Millefiori. 
(Thousand Flowers)


Since it's warm enough to wear the pink T-shirt (Yayyyyy!), I busted out this necklace.  
It didn't take long for me to admire its beauty and then.....hmmmmmm


 Embellish's new challenge! 






      I tried to mimic the flowers of my jewelry.
I'll admit those flowers WERE tedious.  I just had to show you the HUGE die I used to cut out most of the tiny flowers. I wanted you to see how committed (obsessive) :) I can be when I have a "vision".  :)



I think it was worth it.  



Hope you like it, and thanks for peeking in. :)
