how would you like to fly away,
fly away on a magic carpet!
to a land where your most favored dreams become reality!
One World One Heart was created by Lisa in 2007 to bring bloggers together from around the world who may never ordinarily meet. The object is to discover new and wonderful people along the way, and in the process possibly win one or many prizes. It's all about sharing and finding kindred spirits.
So come on in! Let's get started! Please stay awhile, Make yourself comfortable and look around. After your visit here, grab your magic carpet and fly on over to the next home. As Lisa says, "Think of this as taking a giant tour of homes; you get to stop in, look around, meet the people who live there, admire and be inspired and before you go on to the next one you leave your name in hopes to win a door prize at each home."
And now for my giveaway!
"Oh, what is it?" you say. "It's earrings, " I say. "I can SEE that!" you say.
These are beautiful earrings made from Grade A freshwater rice pearls, Grade A freshwater potato pearls, and sterling silver. The lovely pearls are so lustrous! They will come in a silk bag that I hand dyed with the happy colors of Spring. Read on to see how I dyed it.After the silk is washed and dried, I tied it up. In this case, I used orthodontic rubber bands.
Now the tied silk is soaked in white vinegar for 30 minutes.
ready to dye!
Place in closeable baggie and microwave on high for two minutes. You can pause the microwave every 45 seconds or so to keep the bag from bursting. Now open up (VERY carefully) and wash with a dab of mild soap. Soak in a solution of water and a little fabric softener if you like. Iron on low heat.
Now it's ironed and ready for you to win!
