Nice Weather for Ducks...

Well we did have some lovely spring weather here in my part of the UK last week - lots of blue skies and warm sunshine, not sure where it went but the rain and clouds are back far too soon! :(

I'm very fortunate to have a small lake just round the corner from me, I did manage to grab a few of those rays with a couple of nice walks before the weather turned, I'm in desperate need of blowing off the winter cobwebs!

I'm making lots of brighter, more colourful gemstone and Swarovski pieces for the shops I stock at the moment, ready for the spring and summer - my favourite time of the year. Everything in the garden is starting to burst into life again, not nearly enough colour though - I really must plant some more spring bulbs, especially daffodils! Lets hope it brightens up for the easter break :)

Vintage Postcards

Just a quick one today to introduce a new Etsy shop selling vintage postcards and photographs. - this one indulges my passion for history and antiques! You can check it out here - Sitting Pretty :)

I've been so busy just lately - we've been doing some alterations and redecorating in our lounge, I meant to take a photo of the lovely Victorian tiles in front of the now disused fireplace but forgot! They were a faded inky blue/white in colour with a floral pattern - oh well, next time! We've left them 'in situ' as most were damaged sadly, but they are nicely protected underneath the flooring. It's mostly finished now, just a few little odds and ends to do :)

I'm also trying to catch up with orders this week, and of course the bridal season is now well under way! As well as revamping the lounge, I've not been well the last couple of weeks, so I'm slowly trying to get through the backlog of paperwork, housework, you name it! New jewellery soon, I promise... :)
