Treasury of the day.....

Well I got a chance to make this treasury for my British Emporia team mates, so thought I'd share the love and post it up for your viewing/ shopping pleasure =)  The treasury's theme and colour palette was inspired by Lizze's Beautiful Art's original Blue Moon Painting and the idea of a midnight ball.  The bright day time turquoises and blues associated with summer are here in their night time forms =)

Add a touch of colour....

 Here is my Super Duper collection of colourful children's finds on Etsy!  I just love them and beautifully original, what more can I say, go and explore these shops for yourself and I'm sure you'll find something to make you smile =)

I made this treasury for my British Emporia team members with the inclusion of some other talented Etsyians and the title says it all.  I just love these colours don't you and the beautiful items my fellow team mates have made and found (vintage).

Still dreaming of summer....

Ok so the idea here was to create 4 summer themes, the fresh summer's day, feeling hot hot hot, high summer flower power and Mediterranean watermelon heaven ( you can't get much better then watermelon!)

Green the colour of new growth and vitality.  Here I choose beautiful green finds with all the promise of summer to enjoy!

 Created with a longing for summer with its blue skies, lush grass and that feeling of freedom that the outdoors brings, hence the presence of the winged creatures of flight =)


Summer Dreams....

 I love the sunshine and warmer days.  I think to really understand this you have to live somewhere like the UK!  Well I created the above treasury with this in mind.  Turquoise and orange work so well together!

And this gorgeous hints of summer was made for that transitional period between Spring and Summer, when the days are getting longer and more time is enjoyed outside till late =)


Playful Starfish.....

 I've been collecting beads, pendants and charms for over 20 years and I've had this lovely starfish in my collection for sometime now waiting to be used.  One of the things I love about my Karen Hill Tribe silver, other then the fact that most of it is fair trade, is that its lovely and organic with its prints and shapes.  So here I teamed up these lovely starfish with beautiful Lampwork beads, that have been handcrafted by a artisan to be reminiscent of vintage Sea glass.

I found the fossil that I've used as a photo prop on the beach, when I went away for a week with my primary school when I was 11 years old =)

Hello June.....

Well it's been a while since I've blogged and given you some eye candy, but that's all about to change!  I'm still active on Etsy and finding gorgeous items, even buying a few, as well as selling.  So get ready to do some serious clicking as I post some new treasuries of my lovely finds, as well as some of my work, grab a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy!
