Burnt Orange Floral Earrings

I think the title of this pretty much sums up what this post is about! Etsy told us (how these folk know I don’t know) that burnt orange was going to be popular this summer so it would be a little silly not to make a few bits of jewellery in this seasons colours.

Sisters, Shopping and Sparkly beads

The joy of having a sister living so close (by close I mean just across the road!) is girly shopping days. We are both busy and lead different lives but make a point of finding time for us to go out together and relax. We had one of these shopping days last week and after… Continue reading Sisters, Shopping and Sparkly beads
