Lancashire Life!

For those of you who I haven't crowed at about this yet, I am in this month's issue of Lancashire Life. The photo of me is a bit unfortunate though, as what was actually sunburn instead looks like I've got huge bags under my eyes.
I much prefer this snap, from Camp Bestival last month. Yes, I am dressed as the Cheshire Cat, if the Cheshire Cat had to wear a cagoule and wellies...

Anyhow, if you want to browse the new items I've listed to keep stock levels up (things have been flying out of the door thanks to Lancs Life), you can of course visit my shop here.

Originally uploaded by meowmongoose I love Owl On The Sill's jewellery and if I could I would buy everything she makes. These beautiful earrings were added to the Made With Love Flickr group and I just love them.

Incidentally, if my boyfriend is looking for a way to make up for making me late for work this morning, these would do nicely...

See the rest of her lovely items here:

Folksy Front Page

Folksy have a lovely new member of staff called Anne who has been working really hard to curate their front pages. She has been working to a theme every week or two and they are looking absolutely fantastic.
So imagine my excitement when I looked today to find that my La Dolce Vita necklace had been featured! It's such an honour - all the featured items are so beautiful and I'm so proud that my jewellery has been chosen.
You can see what the front page looks like below. And if you want to snap the necklace up (it's one of a kind, so once it's gone it's gone!) you can buy it here

Time For Tea!

What could be more lovely than English afternoon tea, complete with pretty china and cupcakes?
That's the thought that has inspired my first pick of the items added to the Made With Love Flickr group.
First up is this cute card by Messy Jesse . Available in sets of three they're blank so you can use them for birthdays, thankyous and any other occasion!

Next up is this gorgeous creation from Kitty Eden. Kitty makes the most gorgeous fabric brooches in the world in the shape of flowers, rosettes, birds and, of course, cupcakes.

Every good tea party needs a set of pretty teacups, and these badges from Incy Wincy Stitches are absolutely perfect!

Last, but possibly my favourite of all, is this gocco print notebook from Aleximo.There are also matching stickers!

Don't forget, if you have time pop over and have a look at my (nearly finished) new website!

Fairytale Christmas

I know it's a bit early to be discussing the "C" word, but imaging how excited I was to receive my Royal Exchange craft shop August newsletter today to find that I am mentioned!
My jewellery will be available to buy as part of the Royal Exchange's Fairytale Christmas exhibition, which opens at the beginning of November.
The jewellery on sale will be a special, fairytale-inspired collection created exclusively for the Royal Exchange, and will not have been previously available, although like all my pieces it will feature reworked vintage finds.
Meanwhile, you can see the mention and pic here:

I have also recently been featured on the fabulous blog, A Designed Life. You can read the full feature here. And don't forget to pick up next month's Lancashire Life to see my two-page feature! Woop!

Let me tell you about...

Owl On The Sill.
A little over a month ago I bought a beautiful pair of earrings from this gorgeous, gorgeous shop. There's so much more that I want to buy, but it appears those mean mortgage people need paying, so no treats for me at the moment!
But doesn't mean that you shouldn't though! Buy things for yourselves! Buy things for your friends! Buy things for me! (Email for my postal address, all presents happily received.)
Just look at all the gorgeous things you could buy:

Fiery Blue Moon Earrings - £17

Scarlet pendant - £14
Such a gorgeous necklace! If anyone is wondering what I would like for Christmas or, y'know, as a token of affection, this would do very nicely.

Bubblegum Chalcedony and Tourmaline Earrings - £16
I think maybe these are my favourites, although it's so hard to choose.

Purple Petal Hobo Bag - £25
That's right, she makes bags too. This is sooooo sweet.
p.s - I've been usy working on my website which is nearly ready for…
