I finally took the plunge...

So at the grand old age of 26 I decided to get my ears pierced, five weeks on, just one more week to go and then I can wear my first ever pair of dangly earrings. I chose olive, citrine and amber coloured beads with gold coloured wires, and a piece of gold chain from my jewellery scrap box, and these are what I finally came up with. Having neither purchased nor worn anything like this, there was a lot of holding up at the mirror. I hope to capture a snap of them in situ around this time next week! PS I am a wee bit nervous about taking my sleepers out but at least these are my incentive to be brave and get on with it!



And finally... my wee lad will hate me for doing this, but I found this photo on my camera and it never fails to make me smile, my funny little terrier!

My first Suffolk Puff


Here it is, made from an offcut of a vintage scarf. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. I think I have seen these, or something like it, described as yoyos which I quite like too!
