M, N, O, P, Q R, and S!

A-Z Challenge (Things I love)

M - My Mother! oh and Money but not so much of the modern every day stuff (tho more of that would be nice) I love the beautiful old coins of long ago that are just plain beautiful to look at, back in the days when coins were made of silver and gold!!!

N - Netsuke, I love anything miniature and these like works of art are just amazing!

O - Owls, I got super excited a couple of weeks ago late at night because there was an owl hooting out side my window!


P - Post! I love getting post, I think it is a hermit thing, but I stalk the posties!

Q - Queen or The Queen...

Because she is amazing!

R - Reading, I do love when a book is so good you just cant put it down, I have just finished reading The Memory Book by Rowan Coleman and I loved it, beautifully written and with a surprising ending! Next up The Hare With Amber Eyes by Edmund De Waal.

S - Stationary, any journals, note books, fountain pens, pencils even stickers!

Bead Peeps Swap 'n' Hop

I can't believe it! I completely forgot to show you the wonderful treasures I received from my wonderful partner Melissa for the Bead Peep's Swap 'n' Hop! I have had the photos on the computer since I snatched them off the postie, but have only just remembered to post them, Sorry Melissa!


So here are the lovely things I received....


Ceramic spike focal and bracelet bar by Peruzi, the textures on these pieces are wonderful and knew straight away what I was going to do with that spike (so exciting)!
Lampwork focal by DKS in purple and green.
Soar Pendent/charm by the wonderful Melissa herself (made for the beads of courage charm auction hosted by the amazing Jen Cameron which we both took part in). I love this charm, the colours are very me and it is so tactile.


Lots of sparkle for the magpie in me! Czech crystal rondelles, and titanium coated druzys (I have always wanted druzy beads, they are just so twinkly)!


The cutest ever little copper bird clasp, Czech glass owls and these wonderful Australian wood beads!


And finally these wonderful Australian pennies and three pences, aren't they cool! I feel utterly spoilt and can't wait for the revel on 2nd May. Thank you so much Melissa

H - Handmade

A - Z Challenge (things I love)

Well H has to be handmade! I adore handmade items, the time, care and artistry that goes into making something special, that will be treasured and loved!

Here is what my hands have been making the last couple of days....


A little felt pocket fairy named Daisy for my little girl. The pattern for this cutie is by the amazing Ginger Melon on Etsy and is really very easy to make, even when you have an impatient six year old leaning over your every stitch asking when she will be finished!


She even comes with the pattern to make this super cute tin bed, blanket and pillow. Here are a few other handmade items I love on etsy....
