Martha from MJ Ornaments

A few months back I was the lucky winner of a sweet crystal charm from Martha from MJ Ornaments. I was so surprised as I had just won 2 other prizes from her good friend Rosemary and Tracie. Aren't bloggers great? They must have thought wow what's up with this girl??
Isn't she a little piggy winning everything. I'm sure they didn't really think this ......but I did feel a little guilty. I never win anything normally......I've never had that kind of luck.

Anyways with all the things going on and doing White Wednesday and Black and White Sundays I couldn't seem to find the right time to show it to you.
Until now!!!
I've been leaving it displayed at home on an old bottle and wanted to show it to you in the way I get to enjoy everyday even when I'm not wearing it.

This is the back of it made from copies of her great grandmothers journals. Just as pretty as the front.

I took the liberty to show you some of her other charms. She offers a slew of different designs, shapes, seasonal and everyday.

Can you believe how tiny this little fairy is??? so adorable
Not sure if "Magical" fairy dust is included? Doesn't hurt to ask!!!

Right now she's doing a ton of really fun Halloween charms but with Christmas fast approaching she has many Christmas themes too.

Martha has one of the prettiest blogs around with the most exquisite images I've ever seen as you can witness from the pictures above. The detail and magic is there to drool over.
What's also fun about her blog is that she takes you thru some of the best places Southern California has to offer.

Even if you were not into charms (but who doesn't like charms????) you would still be completely enchanted with her and the creativity she shares with everyone.

If you want to take a look at her website click

Thank you Martha
your beautiful inside and out!

Hi Carole, oh I just love your charm, and I'm like you, when not being worn they decorate my dress form, I love looking at them. You did an awesome "shout out" for her blog, so I headed over. She has fabulous pieces! Thanks for sharing this.

I just received 2 of the Halloween charms I ordered from Martha & I love them. I make, sell, & teach soldering. But, I can tell you I was smitten by 2 cuties & didn't have time to do any for myself so... Trick or Treat???? I say treat yourself. Thanks for sharing.
