Mrs M. made me a lovely jewellery set that is exactly what I would have picked for myself…she knows me well! She had remembered that I had admired her colourful children’s necklace (amongst many other of her beautiful creations) so picked these beautiful and colourful beads:
Unfortunately the lighting isn’t great and doesn’t show off the brightness of the colours but I can assure you that they are stunning!
The necklace is a great length as I always choose long necklaces and I wore it out on my trip to the theatre last night:
I couldn’t get the earrings in the pic as well but this one does show the colour of the beads a bit better!
And if that wasn’t enough (she reall is spoiling me!) she also sent me these beautiful wooden buttons that I absolutely love!
Again, sorry about the photo quality…my room had rubbish lighting!
I haven’t decided what I will be using the beads for yet…I am currently debating making a bracelet like Janey’s or possibly stashing them to use on a crochet cardigan…but when I do find the perfect use for them it will certainly give me a nice break from uni work!
So I would like to say a huge thank you to Mrs M. for this wonderful gift that made my day! And i would also like to say to Janey, The Underestimated Mom and A Ponytail Kind of Day that I haven’t forgotten your surprises! Things have been pretty hectic with my return to uni but hopefully things will settle down soon so I can get your surprises made and in the post…even if it takes me into 2013!
