Wholly Devoted

I like to give my necklaces a name and have called this one, "Wholly Devoted". I've been having fun playing with all the new little trinkets that I've been picking up at estate sales and online. In case you are unaware, online shopping can be a very dangerous activity. May I add, very, very dangerous? LOL

I have a multitude of packages that I have already received and have more on their way. Every morning, I am like a puppy dog watching out of the window for my mailman to stop by.

For this necklace, I used a portion of a vintage rosary, a religious medal, and the most adorable tiny glass vial. I had gone to an estate sale and picked up a really old German Catholic book of novenas. It is from 1841. Since the book as in bad condition (obviously well-used), it didn't bother me to remove pages and even (dare I say it?) rip them apart.

I am hoping to put together more in the next few days. Wish me luck!

A very dangerous activity indeed! I am just as guilty as you so don't despair - you are not alone!! But isn't it just great to get that package that you have been dreaming about for days and then being able to create something of beauty from it? It's the little things in enjoy! BTW - this necklace is gorgeous!

I love what you did with your latest treasures. I am trying to stay away from on-line shopping now- because it it definitely dangerous. I will miss stalking the mail box for boxes of goodies..hee,hee!

Love the necklace! Your new book find sounds amazing. I'm putting up a link to your blog later today because I used one of the vintage birthday hat gift tags I bought from you in making a lampshade. Curious? LOL Check it out later on and I will have lampshade photos up.
