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!

Our Blog Award

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. Now, I think I have to name five of my favourite things and pass on the award to other blogs I enjoy reading. Just way to many to choose from, but here I go.....

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........

Lavender Cottage
Sun Rise Jewellery
Beads by Clare Scott

That was pretty tough actually because the list could just go on and on there are so many that i like. Enjoy ....

Joined Bracelet

How pretty is this bracelet and so dainty too. This is a specially commissioned piece for a new customer and is called 'Joined'. It is a wedding piece handmade to match Joined earrings and necklace which the same lady also has. I am sure she will look absolutely stunning on her very special day. Jo has designed this set exclusively for Just So Silver and has incorporated the joined rings in all three pieces to symbolise the marrage perfectly. She has used A grade rock crystal and freshwater pearls in her design. The beautiful ivory pearls were an exact match to the brides amazingly gorgeous dress. Congratulations to the happy couple!

Cool Fridge Magnets

I've just found these handmade colourful fridge magnets on one of my followers blogs. Zu is running a free give away of these magnets and will include a piece of her jewellery too! She also makes some beautiful polymer clay bead sets which remind me of strawberrys. Go and have a look but be quick as the draw is on Wednesday 5th August 2009 :-)
