Honey, I’m home😳

About this design:

Remember the movie "The Shining"? I can relate-this past week has been a nightmare in Houston. Temps in the teens and no power. Anyhoo... I made these earrings using a lantern for light, so if they're crooked, that's why. heehee. We survived and its suppose to be in the 70's next week-crazy!


Pre made hoops, seed beads and copper colored pearls. I've attempted to download this at least 6 times-go figure

    Robin, these are so cool. Kind of hippie. I can’t believe you were beading through such an ordeal. Since there were such power failures I am not surprised you had trouble uploading. Glad you made it through. These earrings make me think of my youth. Long long ago.

    Glad you came through it all okay, Robin! These earrings are very retro-mod … way cool! They remind me of earrings and indian-beaded chokers of the 60′s and 70′s, but with an utterly modern twist.

    Hey Robin, we’re gonna make it, neighbor! Icicles and roof-sheets began melting and crashing to earth here in Louisiana yesterday. Lovely design, so glad you managed it.

    Is the “Honey I’m Home” relevant to the song of the same name, “…and I had a hard day”? Y’all must be as done with the free 7-day trial of Alaska Life as we are.

    With the warmer weather just hours away, I can’t wait to see what you come up with next. Blessed be. <3 :-)

    Such fun earrings. Your poor little fingers must have been awfully cold. Funny reference to “The Shining” Any way – I just love these earrings. You’ll be able to remember that night forever.

    I am so sorry that ya’ll lost your power! And ice is always bad. But I am not feeling terribly sorry about your weather in the teens. Last Sunday morning we had -20 with a wind chill of -40. Subzero temps for way too many days. When it finally warmed up we were so happy to get out and about. In long sleeve T’s! And we were reasonably warm in the 16 degree sunshine! It felt like a bit of heaven!!! I can’t believe that people live with winter weather like that all winter long. And I can’t believe that this former California gal used to think that 50 was soooo cold. Funny how your perspective changes….

    Zippy-Klunk says:

    Love the earrings!!! They look like summer to me. Must be the cold along with the colors. I would not have thought to use a lantern and make use of a blackout. You impress me! …Here’s a funny thing — back awhile I loved your “Christmas ornaments” that were actually earrings. My first glance at these, my first thought was what cool pot embellishments! Mostly because I have been “indoor gardening” and I was toying around with the idea of making some pot dangles and playing around with it. And these are exactly the pots and colors I would use. Kinda fun. Thanks for posting a prototype. Maybe I can actually pull myself together and make something?…Still too cold for earings here.

    Zippy, where do live? I know my complaining seems trivial- my son in Nebraska probably wouldn’t even wear a coat in the cold we had. But, but, but I was freezing, my joints were freezing. I lost all my palm trees, succulents yada yada! And Houston isn’t cut out for that cold weather. My beagles loved it! Today it’s 60- go figure. This I do know- I’ve got a ton of yard work to do. Beading and gardening- my favorite things to do! Stay warm friend!

    Texans are tough souls! Hoping this week sees much improvement in your day to day living. The earrings are so cute!

    Oh Robin I am so sorry! I never intended to trivialize your ordeal. Re-reading my comment I realize that it came out all wrong and not what I was intending to say. And I’m so sorry that I didn’t re-read it before posting. Had I done that I wouldn’t have sent it. I have been on a sorta media fast and I didn’t hear until tonight just how bad Texas has had it. And I should have known better anyways. I was in Southern California when we had a night at 11 degrees and I lost much of my beloved garden and many horses died under broken stall pipes. Again I am so sorry. I was feeling kinda chatty but should have engaged my brain/heart. Inconsiderate and dumb! …I am a landscape designer. You may just be surprised that not everything that looks dead is actually dead. Don’t completely remove anything until the growing season has had several weeks to work it’s magic. The palms in that big So Cal freeze looked awful but pushed out new growth and recovered…maybe that helps a tiny bit?

    Robin, I love the earrings & the great way you attached the seed beads inside. I definitely see a hippy-vibe in them–great size too. Since I haven’t had my hair cut for over a year due to covid, larger earrings are now my thing. Good thing I have a few from my younger days that I just couldn’t part with–but, now I’m trying to figure out how to make larger ones that fit my style and can be seen amongst this straggly hair of mine that is out of control. Thanks so much for the great ideas. BTW, I think pot hangers are a great idea too! :)

    Zippy, no worries! I like the way you think outside the box ! I’m always up for trying new things (I think y’all know that about me). Pot hangers – now that’s a really good idea. Those pots in the picture are yogurt crocs. Cute huh?! I’m attaching a pic of my crazy kitchen window with a beaded flower pic in the middle

    Ear rings by lamp light… What a novel idea but when you are freezing your tail feathers off any light and warmth are a blessing.
    Outstanding work given the circumstances. I really like the design and if you change the colors and it has endless possibilities…pale pink and light green, instant spring, burnt orange, gold and brown instant autumn.

    Wow Robin Beautiful Kitchen. Love the Orchids and of course the beautiful flower pick.
