Its a 'bead' world!


The challenge over at thisthursday this week is all about changes. I bought 3 of these tea light holders from M&S about 3 years ago but with all the moving around the green coating had started to peel off. So I scrubbed them clean and then decorated them with twisted wire and beads. Well waste not...want not!! LOL!

This is a bracelet I've made to match a top...

and then Tina made this gorgeous brooch for me this week which matches so well!! I'd admired one she had made when we first met so was over the moon at this present. Thanks hun!

I just wanted to apologise for not being around much at the moment or for getting over to your blogs but have just been so busy with one thing and another this week. I do appreciate you all finding the time though to leave such lovely comments for me to read and for all the very funny e-mails!!
Sending big hugs to everyone in Gibraltar that visits my blog as well...really looking forward to catching up with you all in a couple of weeks.
I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend...I'm off to see what you have been up to!
Hugs,

These are lovely! I especially like the tea-light holders. Very pretty, and I'll bet the flame catches the colours of the beads, too. Lovely!

Was wondering where you were.. Thought my Google Reader wasn't working! I'm glad you're OK.. was getting concerned.

Hi Emma
Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog. However I cannot agree, you are much too modest. All your peices are stunning and certainly show no lack of insiration.
