Hello Again...... Been Making Wire Wrapped Sea Glass

Well in July I will be teaching a quick class on making charms, I will be sharing some time with other ladies who will be teaching also....so had to make something QUICK! So easy peasy wire wrapped charms is one of the charms I will be teaching. I also have two more....more on that later! These are actual sea glass I have found down at Kill Devil Hills, NC. I have spent my whole life looking for these pieces of glass and have a lot!! I always manage to find at least one piece each visit...even though it has almost become impossible to find anymore.

I have even used shells I have found on the beach and sea pebbles. Now the one with the white and teal is one I fused in the kiln.

How cool is this...its in the shape of South Carolina!!  I was digging for charms and the palm tree how perfect!

Another dark brown (beer bottle I'm sure) piece

Just another view of some of the charms.

As I have told you before I'm addicted to INSTAGRAM you can follow me on the link on the sidebar of my blog or go to search stampmom9 or Dawn Gallop. So most of pics anymore are Instagram pictures all on my IPhone...as if you don't always have that......well here lately the boys seem to always have mine...they will even run the battery down till it plain just dies!!! They love the games...they will even do it to my IPad...I don't have a chance. ANYWAY on this picture of my garden building which my garden has been doing fair this year...I have had a run in with some kinda insect issue...I try to be as organic as possible but I swear this has been the worst it's some kinda squash beetle...it has attacked all my squash and zucchini??? In the pic is my cucumbers and squash beds. This pic is about a month old.....

I put in a pond this year on my back patio, I had a pond at my old house and this has been on my list to do since I moved here...and finally accomplished!! YEAH!!! Its a work in progress but at least I can enjoy now. The turtle and the fountain are working.

I just love the little pond so much enjoyment and the little turtle oh too cute! I need some Koi like I had at the other house......

This is a pure Hipstamatic pic of one of my sunflowers in my garden with a bee on it...oh so magical! I love sunflowers.

The center of one of my flowers....I tell you I have had so much fun with my IPhone....LOL!!! Such a beautiful shade of pink.

I had a ton of fresh May peas this year and they were oh so delicious. Bruce and I took turns shucking/shelling them.

This is a close up of my fern on the corner of my garden shed...using the macro lens of my IPhone yes....I have one and I purchased at PHOTOJOJO and you know what I ordered the IPhone scuba skin and I expect it to arrive today!!! Sweeeet! Beach and pool pics in the water!!!! YEP!!!! I'm there!

Coop holding all the carrots we pulled from our garden this year. I had to make room for the gourds so we pulled and they have been oh so yummy!!! Now that's fresh!!

Colten enjoying the pool, everyday I take them out to the pool.....they just love it...the water is so cool and refreshing on these hot June days. Check out the snorkel gear he got....love that lime green!

Another fun pic from my IPhone love the bubble! Dusty enjoying his times at the beach, we try to go as much as possible.

I have been working on Dusty's party, his theme this year is ....you guessed it! SHARKS!!! I have been making these towels for him and his guest.

Here is one I did with my IPhone looking at the sun! LOVE IT!! Its like adding a digital washi tape to your pics....tooo flippin cool! I hope you too have a BEAUTIFUL DAY!!!! Hugs, Dawn Gallop
