Keeping it Simple with Linen Thread....

 Yay I took some picture's, granted the sunshine was kind of missing, but let's focus on the positive!
 I made these simple necklaces for the school summer fair using the lovely waxed Irish linen thread and other materials including freshwater pearls, Czech glass beads and shell beads.
 Unfortunately I didn't take picture's before selling some of these lovelies as I do like to have a visual record of everything I make.
They look lovely worn individually or combined =)

The Sun is out again......

So before I try and take some photo's and maybe go out into the garden, I thought I'd share another treasury (yup I've been getting back into the habit of making them).  My aim was to create a relaxed garden/ home, with a little walk to the local shops theme.  Maybe this is because I like going out for a walk later on in the day when it's not so hot and getting a coffee =)  I love everything here!  The rolling pin is wonderful and I think it would make a great gift for someone special I know and the espresso cups are too cute.

Think I might try and take better picture's of these earrings.  The are a lovely antique pale lustered green =)

Looking for a Rainbow....

It's been hot 24 - 7 until the rain came today with thunder and lightning.  And in between the rain showers if the sun comes out maybe you would of seen a rainbow.  There's always something magical about seeing a rainbow and my children love spotting them. But today I went looking for rainbows on Etsy, created by my talented team mates and other Etsyians and here are some of the lovely finds I found =)

I've also been adding some new colours to the collection of teardrop briolette earrings available in my etsy shop, with more to come, but still have lots of pictures to take!  Hopefully now the kids are on holiday I'll have more time and some sunshine to take the pictures!

And now available from my Etsy shop is this lovely set of 8 pairs of earrings =)

Finding the Ocean.....

I love the Sea and find the Oceans fascinating, so no wonder many of my treasuries are themed after them.  As always I love looking for finds in aquatic colours and tried to capture a little of the movement as well.  The beautiful teal skirt in the top row looks to me as if its floating with the beautiful fish =)
