Building and Bling!

Well, our footings were dug for our extension last week, hurrah! The stress has started... I'm sure everything will work out eventually, but it's not running smoothly at the moment.

We decided to buy ourselves a little treat to remind ourselves that everything will look lovely when it is all finished, I just wish that I could turn this into a rubber stamp!

The Ball went really well on Saturday evening, we had a great time, and lots of money was raised for the SADS charity, (Sudden Adult Death Syndrome). Please see my earlier post. I am posting a picture of the jewellery that I made to wear, and Debbie, if you read this, hope you like it! The large crystal was something I treated myself to with my Christmas present money, and was quite expensive. Yes Terry does know how much it cost, because he was with me at the time! I have use Swarovski crystal to compliment it in Jade, Emerald and Indicolite, and czech glass beads. I have also used silver filigree hearts to give a vintage feel which I love. I then made a matching bracelet and earrings with silver findings.I don't really have any decent photos of Terry and I in our finery, but I don't like having my photo taken, so that would explain why! I may find one at a later date...

Hi Judith, what beautiful jewellery. The colours are gorgeous & that large crystal is stunning. Good luck with your extension!

I hope your extension work goes more smoothly. I'm sure you'll love it when it's done. Your pussy seems to like it at the moment anyway!!!!
I love your "treat". I love these wrought iron works of art, I have one that looks like a flower in our conservatory and would love something else, I never get tired of looking at it.

Good luck with the builders! Love the wall art, you can never have too many tree stamps is my motto, so I'd love one if it too :)


Hi Judith
Thank you so much for your lovely comment on my Leanne Ellis Challenge card - I was chuffed to bits when I found out this morning it had been picked out by the random thingamajig, as I never win anything!
I love the necklace you made - the colour is beautiful. Your blog is fascinating - I particularly love the name of your blog(Poppy) which is the name of your cottage. I named my blog after my youngest grandchild, whose name is Poppy!
All the best, Sylvia x
