    Hi, Donna! Welcome back!!! Sure missed you while you were away!

    Great pick with gorgeous blues! I like the mixed metals look! Very nice! :D

    KPJEWELS says:

    Glad you’re back, Donna. Gorgeous combination. I never used to like the metals but with all the inspiration on this site, one can’t help but learn to like everything including the metals.

    Hi Ladies! I’ve missed y’all! Thanks for the compliments Sue. I’m feeling really mellow…the calm before the storm…school begins on the 17th for the teachers…What happened!?!

    personally, I’m not a metal mixer, but I love the blues and greens together!

    Well thanks Jeanne. Did I write back to you, or was I “dreaming” that? LOL School starts for me on the 17th UGH!!! I’m actually going to work in my room tomorrow…There is never enough time to work on them when we go back…too many meetings etc….

    Your choices work for me, Southern Chick. Of course blue looks great with everything and everything in this pick is great with blue.

    You did write back on Friday, Donna. I’ve been a bit pre-occupied to respond. I don’t think I can get in my room yet. But then, I still have another month.
    I’ll be thinking of you on the 17th.

    Sorry Jeanne…Am I the only one who still has difficulty finding the newest emails on lb? I have to go through every page to look for the messages with the little “1s” beside them. I wish they would just show up on the first page! I’ll find it!

    Thank you Little round chick. Did you have a POD while I was gone?

    Donna – you wrote back, not me. LOL
    but I do have the same problem. I click through all of my messages to see who I have to respond to.

    Donna, I’ve MISSED you!!!!!!!!

    For the record, I LOVE mixing metals. The trick is too really mix it up; in other words, don’t make it look like a mistake. Use several metals equally. Like I say, I love doing it.

    Great pick!

    We go back the 17th, too. I’m heading to the Texas Gulf Coast with my son tomorrow for 5 blissful days on the beach of my favorite Texas barrier island.

    I agree — it has to look as though the mixing is meant to be that way. Can’t have just one of a metal dropped into a design where everything else is a different metal — then it looks like a beading boo-boo! LOL

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Donna, you and I have talked before about the search for the “1s” next to the messages — so tiny and faint. Sure wish all new messages showed up on the first page, too. I called and talked to Steve a couple of weeks ago — asked him if it would be possible for the “1″ to be easier to see and he said he would work on that for us. He’s a great guy to talk with — super helpful and you can tell he is very knowledgeable about computers, but he doesn’t “talk down”. :D

    I like this pick!
    I wish we could choose to sort garden messages by “unread”! That would make it even easier!

    Very nice pick!
    And my hat is off (figuatively speaking) to all the teachers out there. :-)

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    There’s a 1 next to unread messages??????
    Never noticed it.

    Debra – I just might like metals mixed your way. You all are going to get me to try something new again!

    Harriet, thank you so much for the kind words about teachers!
