May 2, 2011


My friend Carrie, from The Passionate Home in Langley, loves old stuff as much as I do.
  She gave me a bag of vintage treasures to dig through in order to create a necklace for her....here is the first of two that I have made for her (please no peeking Carrie!!).
 The old optical lens looks wonderful paired with this rather gothic looking silver piece.

I am so excited to tell you that Carrie is in the process of moving her store to a BIGGER location!!!  
Be sure to visit The Passionate Home in downtown Langley (reopening this Wednesday!)...you will find wonderful goods for your home, both new and vintage.

You my dear, you are a WONDER! So incredibly beautiful. Carrie is one lucky girl. I may not be able to make it on Wednesday, but I will be sure to visit her "gathered goodness", for I KNOW it will be perfect!
Sending you spring HUGS...xoxo Rosie

I am so excited to know that Carrie's shop is doing so well. I met her back before she moved into the McBurney Square, she always carries such terrific items.
