Hearts and flowers

I hope you all had a lovely Valentine’s Day? It intrigues me that other cultures celebrate events in different ways. I gather that, in the US, Valentine’s Day is used to share love with everyone, including friends and family. Here in the UK, it is a day for lovers and romantic love.

With this in mind, I’ve chosen hearts for my shop theme for this week. Not exactly radical, but it is appropriate. How about these semi-precious Turquoise hearts?

I hope your day was suitably romantic,  and yes, I did get some lovely roses from my thoughtful husband. Beautiful red ones...

Interesting new things added to my shop in the last few days are some pretty dragonfly earrings:

The dragonfly beads are table cut Czech glass in a lovely Picasso finish. 

And also a steampunk gas mask necklace. (Yes, really!)

You can’t say I’m not diverse, can you?

Shell out for summer

Summer is here! Well, no, it isn’t, but I’m pretending it is so that I can start posting pictures of my new ethnic shell bracelet. 

Anyway, how do I know you aren’t viewing this in Australia? It’s summer there, right…?

In other news this week, we’ve been constructing a wardrobe. Not from scratch, I hasten to add, but from one of those flat pack kits that have instructions that don’t really make sense…

And, because we had to dismantle our old wardrobe, we’ve been in a dreadful mess this week. I’m not going to horrify you with pictures of that spectacle, but we’re slowly getting reorganised and sorting things into the new-sized space.

A tidy room is a tidy mind, they say. Doesn’t seem to be working for me…

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
