Boy, it's been a long week, and I am so thankful that the weekend is finally here.

I hinted at a surprise a couple of days ago(I got sidetracked). Well, now to unveil my big news. We closed on our house on Tuesday so now it not only is officially ours, but now it officially has a mortgage. Only a ten year mortgage because we bought the place so cheaply, but it is still ours. Now if I want to take out a wall, I will have no problem with it. So, in light of my big news, I'm going to have a sale in my shop through the weekend. Get everything 25% off when you, my lovely blog readers, mention "House07".

You may have noticed that bright and shiny new cuff in the picture. That is my challenge item for this week. This week's challenge was to create something inspired by your first job. My first job happened to be a cashier at a local mom and pop grocery store, and every spring we would sell flowers. So, I created this copper cuff with three handcrafted copper flowers. There is a very light patina on the flowers to give them a more antique feel. I really love how it turned out. It reminds me of a corsage. It can be found in my shop and is called In Bloom.

Have a great weekend everyone, and stay safe! Now I'm going to go take a nap.

Aimee that is wonderful news!!! We are still renting (and will be for the forseeable future) and I know how over the moon I would be - you have your very own house!!! The cuff is just gorgeous and I just adore that you have brought so much life and delicacy to the copper with the addition of the flower. An incredible job.

Congratulations on the house!

The cuff is very pretty. I have been so bad at keeping up with the challenges lately.
