more summer looks ...

Although it's hard to image it ever becoming warm, when it has been so cold and wet, with September starting next week, the beginning of Spring is almost here, a perfect time to show you some of my new 'sweet pea' collection.

These images are just the beginning ... more beautiful designs to come,
my best collection yet!!

See a sneak peak at few of my Summer designs at
Red Hill Market this coming Saturday.

... new necklaces ...

Mum will kill me for putting up this picture ... but here goes ...

... here are two images of my new necklaces for my summer 'sweet pea' collection, and a picture of mum putting them together.

A labour of love, each shape has to be traced, cut out, sewn, stuffed, sewn again, trimmed and then pinned and sewn onto the necklace, Mum is pinning the shapes I have made and threading on the multi-coloured beads (which have to be drilled - thanks Husband), later I will stitch them all together.

A lot of effort - but don't they look gorgeous!
I have these and much more to come, all fabulous fresh summer colours!
also a new logo and look is on the way!

favourite recipe ...

This yummy recipe was given to me by my friend Cecile in France, and I have made it many times, it is a definite crowd pleaser, beautifully set custard with the crunchy burnt sugar on the top.

It has become a tradition in my family to give a recipe book for a kitchen tea, as my cousin is getting married soon this is my contribution to the recipe book.

I also thought it makes a great blog post! A photo of me and the kids in Paris, a place that I adore and where I spent six months of my life as an exchange student! We are looking at a map working out the fastest route to the 'Arc de Triomphe.'
