Summer Holidays

The weather hasn't been all that crash hot lately but we have just returned from a relaxing week in Torquay. I took my jewellery supplies (instead of papercraft) this time and and finished the flower brooch and made a pair of dangly earrings. I bought the supplies to make this brooch in Noosa last year and copied (with permission) it as best as I can remember. It was a lot of fun to do. The beads are wired onto a filigree brooch back. There is a lovely little shop called "Tiny Trinkets" in Torquay where I bought extras I needed to complete the earrings.

Dandenong Ranges

Today was a lot of fun! The incentive to travel was the sale at Christina's and we weren't disappointed there. Gail, Kathy and I enjoyed lunch at a very busy Miss Marples in Sassafras and the weather was delightful.

more tiles...

Sarah, Gail and I got in the swing last week for Ness's birthday so we made a few extras for our friend Jayne. Her birthday was this week as well and she loves all things Collections. I told Gail I would mount these tiles on a canvas but I was given a piece of vintage embossed wallpaper that I just had to use. There is also wallpaper on some of the tiles.
