Rollercoaster


What a week. We have mostly been
  • marvelling at Nanna and her superhero tendencies
  • re enacting scenes from Anne of Green Gables (croup + lots of boiling kettles)
  • narrowly avoiding hospital thanks to kettles (relief!)
  • eating Nanna's shortbread to cheer us up
  • wearing pyjama bottoms.

Youngest was on the mend today so I made some jewels and photographed them.


This little silver windmill spins around.



These are ancient Egyptian faience beads.



The new pieces will go live on Monday over at Poppytalk Handmade although you can see them now if you click on the jewellery category in the LH sidebar. Links from my virtual 'stall' click through to my etsy shop.


Is it the weekend yet?

Hurrah for superhero grannies, what would we do without them?

You have had a lot on your plate it sounds, hope you have some time to sit down with a glass of something good this evening and pat yourself on the back for wearing mummy, cook, jewellery designer/maker, business woman, nurse etc hats all at once -NOT easy! And the sound of croup scared the socks off me when mine had it. The jewellery looks lovely, hope it goes really well next week.x

Definitely the weekend and I have a bottle chilling! Although I have to work tomorrow : (
Love the little hare.

Your post brings back memories, croup and whooping cough and deadlines to meet, Happy Days! My mother-in-law used to say to me "These are the best years of your life, when your kids are young" Now I am a granny myself I say the same thing.

Great jewels Missus. Love the egyptian necklace. It certainly is the weekend and I am just waiting for half an hour more before I open the wine... Ax

Miriam Weaver said...

Yep, it's here! I love all the pieces but the Egyptian really caught my eye.

Those are the best-styled jewellery pictures I have ever seen. The bubble gum machine is genius.

Gorgeousness. And it is the weekend - we've already hit the sherry and are planning a takeaway later - the naughtiness!

Good luck - it's going to be fab next week!!!

Oh well done for creating such beauties with so much on your plate this week, everything always happens at once doesn't it.
Time for wine!

Magic Cochin said...

Nanny's shortbread! I've tasted that and it's genius!

I love your end of the pier themed pieces - summer at the seaside here we come :-)

Glad you made it through the week and little pebble is smiling again.

Nice work Emma - what a week. Best wishes for a restful and happy weekend. x

Beautiful pieces, I hope the Poppytalk gallery will be really successful for you. Sorry to hear about the croup, I know the steamy routine all to well, we bought a little machine in the end which really helped. The boy, now 11, has been croupy again this week but much less terrifying now he is bigger.

Well done you for surviving all that. Love the bubblegum-like necklace. Good luck with the sale. Had a sneaky look at the website -looks great. Claire

susan said...

My youngest two had croup just last week and I also had re-runs of 'Anne' in my head. It is quite a frightening condition in full-flight...the cough does stick around though.
Your key locket is my favourite.

kristina said...

Oh I hope the croup has now been banished. And I *love* the silver hare!

kristina said...

Locket Pocket said...

What a week! At least your Anne of Green Gables reenactments didn't include the children getting themselves drunk on Blackcurrant wine! Hope they are both better. Lucy xx

Julie said...
