Tooth problems, Spoon and Rhinestone necklaces

Good morning! I feel I am again in the land of the living after a week in the twilight.  I spent the week starting last Friday pm going thru tooth problems which have taken a week to get solved. The problem started with extreme pain starting Friday night...of course after the dentist's office was closed...so I took ibuprofen and tried to avoid touching it or eating anything hard. 


Saturday no better but thought I could make it to Monday. But Sunday...much worse, so called my dentist at home. He called in a heavy duty pain killer & told me to come in 1st thing on Monday. Monday...couldn't see the reason on xrays, so referred me to an endodontist...who had Monday off & couldn't see me until Wed. 


Got there and the endodontist attempted & failed root canal because she found a crack so recommended removal of the tooth. The neat part was that the oral surgeon about 2 blocks away had just had a cancellation if I could come right away. Could I????? YESSSS!


So I had it removed with so-called laughing gas. I don't even remember having it removed, or even being driven home by my husband. Now that's good stuff for surgery!   BUT...I suddenly realized it's Friday again...a lost week. Guess what? The world is still turning and nothing much has suffered in my absence! I had all these plans for the week...nothing got accomplished. I had a lot of ibuprofen, applesauce & bananas but none of the things I thought so important were done. Psalm 31:15-16 says the my times are in His hands...and that was certainly proved true. If this had happened last week when we were on holiday with friends...how horrible that would have been! So I am a very grateful kid today!!!!


I wanted to share an experiment. When you have been in the antique business a long time you accumulate lots of odds and ends. My husband, having been a jeweler, was cleaning out an odd and end box and found some old worn silver plated coffee spoons and some broken vintage rhinestone jewelry & decided to make pendants. My first thought was...Huh???? But they are really cute! So what do you think?







Different and fun! Also...I love the idea of recycling something that would otherwise be junked and unappreciated. For more info on the necklaces at Antiques And Teacups, click on the photos.


Further recuperating today. Rain showers so a short walk & resting. Have you ever thought how difficult it is to plan meals with soft foods or liquids? Sheesh...boring too! And as I've been doing it for a week I'm about out of ideas!


Have a great Memorial Day weekend and thank you for our troops past, present and future for allowing our free country and lifestyle.
