Au Revoir......

Today, I say 'goodbye' to one of my favourite pieces, the Forest Treasures choker. I don't usually feel sorry to see items go - I'm simply thrilled that someone likes them enough to want them for themselves, or give as a gift - but I have to admit to a little pang of sadness in sending this to its new home in America. It may sound a little dramatic, but each time I pick this up, it really does make me smile! It was inspired by our wonderful surroundings - the glorious ancient Royal Forest of Dean - and how exciting it was to finally move into our cottage set right in the heart of it. But, away it must go!

I am SOOO behind with posts this month. I must say thank you to Jackie and Cathy for tagging me (weeks ago!), and apologise for thus far not passing that tag on - I do intend to....really! Bit late, really...
Also, I just want to share with you this gorgeous little birdie, that I actually bought a few weeks ago - but as it's nearly Christmas it's about time I showed you! Edward and Lilly has more of these, and in other colours in the shop - do take a look. If you buy one today I think you just might get it in time for Christmas (oops - best not take my word for it though; I think international posting is best before 5th December) because Rebecca was very quick with her posting!

The choker is stunning Charlotte! I take lots of photos of things I make and make scrap pages about them - then its almost like I havent parted with them at all!

I always feel the same about parting with my brooches too.
Then I am inspired to make more.
Someone will treasure it.x

Thank you Charlotte, you're so sweet :)

I can see why it was so difficult letting go of that creation, it's gorgeous.

So pleased you sold this wonderful piece Charlotte! And I can understand you being a bit sad to see it go too.

I feel that way about some of my Amelia dolls.

And it is stunning (by the way I wore the beautiful heart necklace I bought from you to work on Friday and even my male work colleagues commented on it!).
