A Tuesday Ramble…

Last night I made some earrings similar to these except with golden tone wire & findings.. I made a pair with Snowflake Obsidian, a pair in Aventurine & some in Haematite. I’ll be doing a photoshoot asap. The pair above are some Tigers Eye earrings that I made a couple of years ago.

I also finished watching The Devil’s Whore last night starring the very beautiful Andrea Riseborough & the brilliant John Simm, a favourite actor of mine ever since The Lakes on BBC about ten years ago! TDW is set back in the day of King Charles & Oliver Cromwell & tells the true (& very sad) story of Lady Angelica Fanshawe… married 3 times & each one died. It’s very well acted & definitely worth a watch! It’s available on channel 4 on demand if anyone fancies it.

I was blown away by these this morning, found over at Find, Make, Do they are both made from carrier bags… I think the coral-type one is beautiful. Pop over to have a look at more carrier-bag installations. 

I also fell in love with this today whilst over at Inside A Black Apple. Emily has done a series of 12 paintings all inspired by Alice In Wonderland… marvellous!

Here is Week 4 of 8 Weeks To A Better Me… all about learning to love yourself, something that most people do struggle with. I’m going to count myself very lucky here & say that actually my self-image is pretty good. I was blessed with a very strong-willed & opinionated mother who taught me & my brother to believe in ourselves, to be self-reliant & to not care what other people think. It is harder not to care what others think as you get older (or so I’ve found) but on the whole she gave me a pretty good grounding & I’m generally pretty nice to myself! Thanks mum x

Fabric Finds…

I love fabric! Here’s a few images… 1) source unknown but aren’t they adorable?! 2) by Samantha Cotterill , 3) source unknown, I do really like fabric wreathes, 4&5) are both by yours truly, 6) another pretty wreath & 7) so cute teeth fabric, both found on weheartit.

I’m off to cook dinner for the lovely drummer boy downstairs… Chicken with mushrooms & boursin, cauliflower cheese & homemade chips. Should be scrummy!
