Thursdays With Terri and a Peek at Several New Designs

Hi Everybody!  It's Thursday and time for another post.  Again I've been busy at my Soldering Station since my last visit.  Thought it might be nice to share some of my newest creations.

For years I've been collecting German Half-Dolls.  I think they're precious, and the smaller the lovelier.  Ironically I've always kept my cherished pieces housed behind glass.  Always wanted to display them openly on perhaps a vanity or tabletop but just never thought they looked properly scaled until now.
I've surely taken them to a new level by permanently positioning them to everything from Vintage Ink Bottles to Heavy Crystal Decanter name it..if I think it's beautiful, I'll try and make a new home for my ladies with it.
I've been experimenting with Patina too.  I'm loving the chic Black with Silver Highlights, but this week I'm using Copper with slight blue undertones.  To me, the effect compliments the porcelain beautifully.

Also created another Cross Bottle..This one is Ruby Red and looks sensationally chic.  I love how the Turquoise Cross shimmers and it's becoming difficult for me to decide which of my new pretties I like the best.

I'll be listing a couple of these pieces today in my Etsy Shop.  Afterwards, it'll be back to my Soldering Station for me.  I'm so in love with this technique right now.  I hope y'all will leave some feedback comments for me.  Just curious to what y'all think of my current fasinations.

Have a Wonderful Thursday Everybody!
And Thanks So Much For Dropping By!

Darling, they are amazingly beautiful! I DO LOVE your new technique:)
Actually time ago I was thinking to start make glass beads for my jewelry, but... the life makes her corrections and I have to leave it for a future.

I'm looking forward, perhaps someday will appear my favorite painting of yours at your Etsy shop:)

Warmest hugs and much love,

Hello Terri Sweetie...
I have been thinking of you, and hearing your voice in my sleep. I must call you soon. I am still so hoarse most people cannot understand what I am saying. They are sending me to the Ear, Nose and Throat specialist next Friday so that he can go down my throat and examine my larnyx. They want to make sure it is the coughing that has caused the hoarsness and not something else we need to be concerned about.

Oh sweetie, I absolutely love your new creations. Talk about gorgeous. The angel is beautiful, and the red heart, oh my be still my heart. What a truly talented artist you are sweet friend.

I read some of the articles and your sweet Moma is a busy gal stacking these days. So she needed cooking room hu? Isn't she precious? I love the picture of the two of you together. You look like your Moma Terri. You two are so sweet together.

I hope you have a beautiful weekend sweetie. You are such a precious gift to your Moma and she to you. Kiss her for me, and remind her she is so loved. How is the reading going?

I will talk to you soon. Many hugs sweetie and so much love, Sherry

Hi Terri,

I wanted to stop by and say hello to you and thank you for your sweet post the other day on my blog. You asked where I live in Georgia...I live in Woodstock GA. We moved from Roswell two years ago and have lived in GA since 2006. We moved here because of my husbands work and had previously lived in Colorado.
So what have you been up to lately? I love the beautiful bottles you have embellished.
I will write to you again soon my friend.

Hugs and Laughter,

Art of Mine

Hi Terri,
Wow, these are beautiful and very clever designs. I love the vintage look!:)
I know it has been a while since we have last visited each other but I understand, it is not always possible to keep up with blog friends. Thank you anyway for your lovely message.
Hugs to you too.
