These Pink Pearl Garden and Blue Pearl Garden necklaces have a secret - a secret compartment, that is.  They're lockets!  I didn't realize this until after I'd nabbed the pendants off of a Michaels clearance rack, but when I did, I thought, "that's nifty!"  Not to mention handy for keeping favorite photographs or trinkets or, heck, even M&Ms close.

Speaking of the unexpected, this (surprise! surprise!) Rainbow Rocks Necklace is a product of some leftover pearls and rhinestones.  Somewhere between retro and princess, it has that kind of rescued-from-the junk-box feel.  As well it should, originating from the bottom of my supply heap.  Which is far preferable to originating from the depths of some musty estate sale according to this princess.

And last but not least, we have the Fabulous Felt Blue Garden Necklace (garden names grew rampant in this post), which was inspired by the out-for-a-walk-to-pick-flowers sundress with which it's pictured.  I got it for $12 online from J. C. Penney's, beguiled as much by its simple, old-fashioned charm as by its price tag.  As I mentioned in a past post, I've decided to give the department store a second chance despite its coupon ban.  Me and JCP, we have history.  Which is precisely why I purchased two more creation-launching pieces this past weekend.  But more on that (much) later.
