New Blog... I am on the move.....

I am moving my blog.
This is for no other reason than that I am technologically challenged.
I have bought myself a shiny new iMac, and its very pretty, but it wont recognise my email password. I could persevere, but I'm not going to, I'd rather spend time playing with my new toy!!
My new/continued blog is
See you there and THANKS

Calista Luxe Necklace

My Calista Necklace is a real show stopper!
Sophisticated and elegant, it has a gorgeous line, plunging down the decolletage.
Entirely hand beaded with a mix of Swarovski Pearl and crystal. I have hand constructed all the feature components and trimmed them with sparkling diamontes. The metal finish is Rhodium, a delicious dark silver colour with vintage appeal.
Calista will be available in my Etsy store after Christmas 2008.

Meet Pippin!

Pippin is new in my 'Luxe' range, a special range made for my Etsy store.
Completely Luxurious with vintage flair.

Made with vintage components and Swarovski crystal, they have been plated with rhodium, a stunning deep silver colour with definite luxury and vintage appeal.
Hope you love them Dorin!

My Hair Model

I am lucky to have a beautiful hair model living in my house. Its the very wonderful Lulu Angel (10). She has the softest most lustrous hair, perfect to be the 'in house model' . Most times, she is exceptionally cooperative, especially when the lure of pocket money tempts her!

Christmas in Melbourne

The Fella had an excursion with Joey Scouts to the city this week to see the Myer windows. (Myer is a department store that decorates its window with a theme each Christmas)
The program went something like this:
*Take the train into the city
*Walk to the City Square to post letters to Santa
*Go see the Myer windows*Mc Donald's for Dinner
*Then take the train home and on the way practice Christmas Carols for the concert they will give to the elderly next week.

It was a pretty great excursion. The Fella's Scout leaders are a wonderfully dedicated bunch who are so great with this group of boys and two girls. The Fella just loves going. I took The Angel too, who was thrilled because she 1. Got to come and 2. Had a friend who was also a sibling to hang out with.
Some memories I will take with me are:
A large group of excited 6-8 year olds weaving in and out of all the 'suits' excitedly while running along the city streets.
The sticky floor at McDonald's and the sucking noise that came form my feet as I walked to find a seat.
The look on the passengers faces on the train when the bunch of little kids bust enthusiastically into 'Jingle Bells" on the train......... in November.

....... Ahhh Christmas................
