This year, I am dressing up the Thanksgiving table a bit.
I needed new wine glasses anyway (the last set has met their demise stem by stem), so I decided to finally take the time to make a set of wine charms.
Now, I've always thought these were a great idea, especially since I have a habit of setting my glass down & forgetting where I put it.
I headed off to Michaels to pick up a few things with an "autumn" flair. I've been spending so much time there lately my husband is starting to wonder who this "Michael" guy is!
I also dug around in the jewelry supply stash & pulled out the Swarovski.
Nothing says "Celebrate the Holidays" like a little sparkle!
I decided to keep with an Autumn color scheme that will also complement the table; olivine, smoke black, topaz...
It was easy enough to bend up the corners of the earring wires so I didn't have crystals running amok to try & search down once the festivities were over.
I'm almost thinking of running back & picking up another set of the leaf charms so I can make extra charms in case my guests would like to take one home! I have a hard time parting with some of the things I create!
And my daughter liked them so much, she informed me I need to pick up a bottle of sparkling cider so she can have her own glass & charm!!
