Have a Nice Weekend!

It's Friday so it's time to sign off for now and go play a bit... I wish you all a lovely weekend and I hope that you'll make time for yourself - paint, reupholster, draw, cook, just get out there and find something creative to do so that by the time nasty Monday rolls around, you'll feel all good about yourself and stuff. ;)

So for now, I'll leave you with a few links and some pretty photos showing the darling work of jewelry designer Halligan Norris who I discovered via the talented Liz from @home Vintage General in Savannah (store tour here in the Savannah shopping guide). It's obvious Halligan attended SCAD because her work is exceptional, I can't stop looking at all the details in her product shots, she's quite a talented young lady.
