Whimsical Wednesdays

Welcome to Whimsical Wednesday!  This week, I am featuring Polymer Clay Smooshers guild member Perrie from Mortimer Inc.

Perrie has some beautiful creations, such as this Black and White Leaf Pin that features Black Pearls.  This brooch is both elegant and breathtaking, complimenting any ensemble.

These faux Ivory earrings are absolutely stunning and would look fabulous for any occasion, though I keep envisioning wearing these to a museum gallery.

This Victorian Lady Pendant will add style to your outfit, bringing a touch of class with modern style.

Happy Labor Day!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend, for those able to celebrate it!  I have been working on a couple of projects, but I spent most of my weekend shopping for new supplies to play with! 

I picked up some Super Sculpey for the first time, along with some new wooden bases, wire for armatures and I placed an order for Magic Sculpt, after reading about it for the past month.

When I wasn't planning new projects, I was trying out new recipes.  I stumbled across this yummy Broccoli-Cheese Soup recipe on my new favorite site, Pinterest.  We did make some minor adjustments...I added three more cups of milk/cream and another two cups of chicken stock.  Next time, I'll bump up the roux to make a thicker soup, but it tasted amazing with fresh broccoli and cheddar cheese.

Here's a picture of how it turned out...before it disappeared! :D  Excuse the messy tasted too good to clean up the picture and I couldn't resist the smell any longer!
