Artist Spotlight: Part Fifty-Two

You've met her here before, but she's definitely worth a second look!  I'm talking about Kimberly of Makin' the Best of It!

She's so freakin' talented!  I'm completely in love with her sea glass jewelry.



But check this out.  When she finds pieces of sea glass that are too big for jewelry... she makes angel Christmas ornaments!


How sweet are those?  And they go with any color scheme on any tree.  Too cute.

And yes, I know it's July and hotter'n hell out there.  So you're still thinking about the flowers blooming, I suppose.  OK, then, She's got that covered too, with this beautiful tea light circle set, hand painted with pretty flowers.


I love that she thinks in practical terms, too.  Her glassware and table top service items are really pretty, like this cruet set and these coasters.



I love sunflowers!  Personally, though, I'm thinking I should get one of her awesome butter dishes.  Our set of china is fairly new and they're not making the butter dish yet, so we're dishless in that category.  And this one is so pretty!


The good thing about stuff like this - butter dishes, cruets, coasters - is that they really don't need to match your china.  They can be specialty pieces for that pop of something interesting, colorful, and unique.
