New Gold Button Jewellery

I have been planning this new 14k Gold range for a while. I have finally gotten round to making it. I am really pleased of how they have turned out. This range has been made with the weddings in mind. I wanted to make a range that is extra special, feminine but still quirky. These necklaces are currently only available on my folksy shop. Once I make more I will list them over on Etsy too. I'd love to know what you all think.

Lets Get Crafty!

I will be in Whalley village hall this Sunday selling my button jewellery and home textile decorations. This is my first event in Whalley, Lancashire and I am really looking forward to it. So fingers crossed for a busy day and please pop along and say hi if over for a visit. 

A little bit about Whalley

Whalley is sheltered by the wooded hillside of Whalley Nab on the banks of the beautiful River Calder. At the heart of the Ribble Valley, it is one of Britain’s most attractive and fascinating areas, easily accessible by road, rail and bus. 
Immersed in history, Whalley village emerged as early as the 600’s. Highlights include Whalley Abbey, a Medieval church and an array of architectural styles to be found in its buildings. 
Fabulous, award winning shops offer a vast range of goods, all served with that little something extra. There are cycle routes and fantastic walks to suit all ages and abilities along with many other outdoor activities to enjoy.

Finally some rain!

I don't usually look forward to rain, but my goodness do we need it at the moment. My garden has been so dusty, and the poor goats next door have hardly any grass to munch! I was very thankful of the lovely bank holiday weather we had though. We started our bank holiday weekend with wonderful family guests Martin, Lill & Sheila. Our first overnighters at our new house! We had a 'jolly' good time, maybe a little bit too much to drink though! Jak and I were quite hungover on the Sunday, and trust me a hangover with a toddler just isn't fun! Then on Monday we had the family over for a BBQ in the afternoon. Fab weekend i say! 

What else have we been up to in this sunny weather?

Reuben wears his sunglasses all day, even at breakfast! he loves them, he's such a little dude! 

We adopted a new rabbit named Peppa. He is teeny, he's a miniature Rex and is fully grown. Super friendly and super duper cute. Reuben loves him so much he tries to kiss him.

We have been spending most our time outside, we built this little den for Reuben. It keeps him entertained whilst I pot up the plants and sow the veg. ( Update on veges soon...still waiting for most of it to germinate!)

Just generally enjoying the great outdoors really, this last photo was taken at Brockholes nature reserve. 

Lets hope its only a couple of days of rain and then hopefully the sunshine will be back to brighten our days!

I finished this lovely lot last night and it has now available to purchase at the fabulous Gift shop 'Strawberry Blue' in Rawtenstall. Check out their facebook page, they have some really beautiful things x
