Well the good news is that the Rounded Square Wooden Brooches are back in stock on Facebook and in the Etsy store, Hooray!
The first batch sold so quickly, I was super dooper thrilled, and finally I have everything ready to go again!

and you can not only wear them as a brooch,

but also as a necklace, 

and I'll include a memory wire choker in either silver or black, with a funky magnetic clasp with every order. 

Here are a few of my favourite designs, I'll be making some new ones later on today (once I've had my super sore back fixed!) and I'll add them to this post.

A New Friend

This is Asha, my beautiful first born child. She recently turned nine years old. And on Sunday while our studio was being demolished (did I mention we were renovating?) she found some geckos in the roof. They are named Liz and Ed. A boy and a girl, she googled, nine year olds can do that, and she worked out their genders, and made them a home. It has rocks for sleeping under, sand for burrowing, water for drinking, and each night she and her brother and sister go outside and find bugs for them to eat. 

Last night Liz and Ed both lost their tails. I think the children need to be a little more gentle with them. They are soft friendly little creatures. I hope that my kids don't love them to death.

Oh the Pretty!

Look at this blossom which is falling over our fence from next door!! Utterly gorgeous! Could it be any prettier? The little pom poms of pink which are waiting to open, then the soft fluttery flowers once they are .. this tree hangs over our gate, what a lovely welcome!

It reminds me of the soft pretties in my store and how much I love making them in gentle whispery light tones .. like this one: 

and another old favourite. 

Makes me realise how much I really love pink, and that happy feeling it gives you. I especially love it against black (I think that's the 80s girl in me) and with light blue. 

And here's a flashback watch and listen XX
