Late Entry (real late) for Margie and Me, and believe it or not a pairing too!

This has to be a quick post because this day has become crazy!!  Like I need to tell you all that cuz it is constantly crazy. (mostly my own fault of course)  I didn't get the dishes done last night, I still haven't taken a shower (so don't come too close) and after I take Derek to school I need to go to Wally World (Walmart) because I have run out of breakfast food and snacks!
Last week Marcie at La Bella Joya posted her 'Margie and Me' challenge and it was Tuscany.  Well I had beads that sort of went along with the palette and I just got Beadwork so I actually had a plan to participate! I fell in love with a pattern in Beadwork called 'floral chandelier' by Teresa Meister.  And you all know I love the 'Custom Cool' section this month which was the 'Double up Buttons'.  Both of these patterns worked up wonderfully and I wanted to combine them.  The only thing I have to say is that I NEED to get better with jumprings!  I tried to get good pictures but a photographer I am not so I will give you the two best!
Now I know that there should be reds and browns associated with Tuscany theme but all that went through my mind was the grape vines in autumn so I do wish you had a closer view.  The seed beads I used were a marbled green/rose/gold and I used brass jump rings (I still need to find the ones that went flying across the room)  This is so pretty in the sunlight (if there were any here) and guess what it also has become a pairing!

It really brings out the golds in this shirt.  (I so need to get better with the camera)  

Note to my sweet blogger friends:
I know I have missed some postings and I will try to get to them as soon as possible but I have been working on some things that I need (and love) to get done.  You all mean so much to me!

Hugs and Blessings
