She Put A Ring On It! Well Actually…Two.

Say hello to my amiga and fellow blogger,  Linda at appletonavenue!  She’s the one who put a ring on it!

Linda has had her share of rough patches in her life and then some, but she is incredibly strong and is taking full control of the things she is able to control in her life.  I admire her perseverance and willingness  to try new things that will bring her joy.  Despite some physical limitations, she has an abundance of energy and endless creativity!   You may even find her doing ‘stand-up’ out there.

One of the many talents Linda has is custom jewelry making.  Check out her website:

I checked it out and loved her work because it is unique and funky, which are two qualities brickhousechick, looks for (in life). I ordered this ring from her site:

Isn’t it cool?  Except that my sausage-like arthritic fingers needed a larger size than she had available, so she custom made MY VERY OWN GIGANTIC ONE! Woot! Woot!

Being the sweet brickhousechick that she is, she also sent me a second surprise ring, just because!  And, me being the space shot brickhousechick that I am, ended up putting the unopened package she sent me back in the mailbox, to be mailed.  Yea, that was last week when my brain fog was at its densest and I had to get the postman to come out and open the mailbox to retrieve my unopened package.

Check out some of her other pieces:

You see what I mean by funky?  And it makes me think of Spring (which I hear is coming soon to a theater near you.)

Got a graduation gift to get?  Mother’s Day gift?  Gift for yourself?  Head on over to Linda’s site and check out more of her reasonably priced unique pieces of art!  And make sure to check out her blog as well.

*Linda is NOT paying me for this advertisement, although it would be nice…JUST KIDDING!

I wanted to share her work with you because I really liked it – and because I may FORGET to do it in the future…(#brainfog).

  1. Oh, I do like your lovebirds, sitting on their perch 🙂 Sets the tone beautifully.
    I just came to say ‘hi’ after your wonderful kindness to Jill. Lovely to meet you. Maria. Happy Sunday!

    1. Hi Jo! Nice of you to visit. Those lovebirds are adorable aren’t they? I had a blast putting Jill’s package together and wanted it to be very special. I had no idea she would end up receiving it while having a horrible day. She is so sweet, that Jill. 🙂
