Wishlist Wednesday - 7

My wishes have taken hours this week!

It's G's 50th birthday this week and we are having a big bash the next weekend at the restaurant at the Norman Lindsey Gallery.

I dont know what to wear!

It's a beautiful garden setting and I thought of something floral and fifties -

but it's an evening function, so how about a little black dress?

It could be a bit cool though, so I might need something over the top -

Maybe I need something brighter -

I love red!

perhaps this one for later!

My problem isnt solved but I've had fun looking!

If you have any suggestions - let me know!

More triangles

no matter how hard you try - triangles never go away!

Once you try them, you are addicted!

So a couple of experiments with colours and design, this week.

I got out all my blue cylinder beads, and started with the darkest shade and moved up to the lightest.
I'm not sure yet what sort of bail I will attach.

I have a plan......

I love turquoise and coral together.
It reminds me so much of Arizona, when we lived in Tucson for a couple of years.
So I thought I would try some simple native american designs.

My idea is also to string some fringing with small coral chips at the end.
It will be a very big, bold pendant.

We shall see....

Friday Fill In we go!

1. Apparently there's some sort of recession going on.

2. I feel like singing and dancing on a sunny day.

3. 2009 has gone too fast so far.

4. If my children's childhood was the best time of my life that was it.

5. For too long I've been getting the burnt toast, now I'm going to have the best piece.

6. I am not obsessed with chickens; I am not!

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to getting to bed early, ready for an early start tomorrow, tomorrow my plans include watching the jousting at Ironfest and Sunday, I want to sell lots of jewellery at Ironfest!

Glenbrook Markets

What a beautiful day!
Perfect weather for a day at the market.

You have to get there early so that that you can be set up early.
then you go shopping!

There are bagels, organic fruit and veggies and fresh fish.
Great coffee to go with my breakfast blueberry bagel.

It's a friendly market, the other stallholders are lovely and a good mix of local customers and passing tourists.

Other etsy sellers who go to these markets are -







as well as other local craftspeople, plants, preserves and collectables.

Monday treasuries

Last week I made this collection to publicise the April DUST (down under street team) sale

This one because it was raining and I felt subdued.

This one was created around FaerrieMajikk's beautiful Luna Faerrie.
It became incredibly popular and was high on the 'hot' list.

Why should the red hat ladies have all the fun?
I love red and purple too!

and here's one I prepared earlier!
I forgot it, but it's too cute to ignore.
I made it for our new tshirt collection, which has an owl for the logo.
