The Magic Of Outdoor Plays

 And just as the summer was preparing its exit, autumn was considering arriving and schools were about to open, we had the good fortune of catching an outdoor children's play* based on a book by the acclaimed Penelope Delta, written and directed by the uber-talented Carmen Rougeri.
It was truly a magical night: the actors were superb, the costumes were utterly captivating, the adaptable set ingenious, the story both highly entertaining and educational and to top it off, the weather was perfect.

I can assure you that a great time was had by all. 

*The story was based on a well-known children's book called Paramithi Xoris Onoma (Fairytale Without A Name) which was first published in 1910 but could have easily been written as a commentary on current events.

Bronze Sparrow Necklace

 This is a necklace I made for a friend the other day.

I've found myself being drawn more and more to the antique bronze selections in jewelry lately. So much so that I went on etsy and bought a variety of bronze jewelry supplies.

I haven't made any jewelry for what must surely be a couple of years now but it turns out it's just like riding a bike......After a couple of wobbly paces, it's just like you never stopped!

On my search for the findings that would call out to me, one of the first to catch my eye was a little bronze sparrow suspended in flight! 

I loved this little guy so much I bought multiples. I plan to make a long necklace for myself that will feature this little bronze bird pretty heavily.

It's a safe bet to say you'll probably be seeing more of him.....

Blue Organza Ring

This electric blue organza flower ring was a present for a friend.

 She chose blue for the petals and I suggested these large gold beads for the centre which she loved.

It's big and bold and makes quite a statement on her dainty fingers.
She's already worn it and says she got lots of compliments on it....

Fairytale Bride

The beautiful Tara, one of my lovely August brides, was kind enough to share some of her dreamy wedding pictures with me.

I was thrilled that she chose to wear this set of flowers from my Fairytale Flower shop on her big day as it's one of my personal favourites.

I love eveything about the bride's styling and I love these pictures!!
Thank you for sharing these, Tara!
