Don't Forget ... !

Oh I just love this heart, it's my favourite piece at the moment. I really like the cute cut out heart shapes in the centre as it makes it so unusual. Erm...if a certain person is reading this, then yes I am hinting :-)

Quin tea ssential Friends

At our recent fair in Wilmslow, we met a lovely couple who were experts in their field of fine teas. They had the most beautiful delicate Japanese tea caddies, bamboo tea strainers not to mention the amazing range of finely mixed blends of tea containing flowers, fruits and spices. We were treated to sampling quite a few and by the end of the day we were hooked. Bernadine selected a blend for my first purchase and I just had to buy a caddie and strainer. Check out those mini clear glass tea pots on the bottom left, soo cute.

Belated Greetings to All xx

I can't believe I have left it so long! Belated greetings to everyone and apologies for not keeping in touch. I hope everyone enjoyed Christmas and had a very merry (hic) New Year. We had a few Christmas Jewellery Fairs and it all seemed such a rush with the run up to the big day........then of course we all had snow and our offices were closed for a few days. Think we are all back to normal now and I have just spotted bulbs coming up in the park! Yay, spring is on the way!

Vintage Flowers

How pretty are these lovely lampwork glass beads with their tiny little flowers and petals. Made into a vintage style bracelet using Bali Silver, Hill Tribe Silver and some toning Swarovski crystals. The green and turquoise shades remind me of Art Nouveau classic designs and an antique vase that my Gran had on her Welsh dresser.

Willowpool Rainy Day

Just had to visit Willowpool today to get my weekly cappuccino fix. If you get the chance to visit you wont be disappointed. You will find Willowpool in Lymm, Cheshire and it is full of all sorts of interesting things from antiques to jewellery and from plants and shrubs to statues and gazebo's. They have a reclamation yard and adorable tea rooms. We usually sit outside in the thatched huts which are each complete with a patio heater. Even in the depths of winter, you will find us there. If you are in the area give it a try!

How lovely of Wendy at Sand and Sea Designs to send me this award. Can you imagine my surprise and delight to find this yesterday, my very first award.

1. Venice (anyone who knows me would have guessed that).

2. The aroma of cinnamon, spice and oranges at Christmas.

3. Adorable Aidan, just too gorgeous for words to describe and one of the loveliest people I know.

4. Orange marmalade on hot buttered toast! Yummy

5. My whole family, every single one of them ! :-)

I would love to pass this award on to other blogs, all of which I check in to regularly to see what they are up to.
My awards go to the following blogs........
