Finally...

Oh thank goodness...back to normal working order - I was beginning to freak out. It is only when you are separated from your blog unwillingly you realise how essential it actually is to you! Reunited and it feels so goooood...and all that ;)

So...I have decided not to push my luck today...and to take it a little easy on the 'ol blog - sharing some moments from the week. I have been out for some nice long walks, despite the regular rain showers - my camera came with, ready to capture moments of shine....I have been bloom hunting as well. Getting just the right flowers for the new necklaces has proved tricky...I am almost there though.


Also wanted to share some of the loot I got from my stone dealer last week - mostly Smokey Quartz beads...for some big Christmas season necklaces...but also some dreamy big briolettes - just look at the size of them!! Cannot wait to turn those into some stunner earrings....

I am off to a wedding tomorrow - so am starting the weekend early. What are your plans for the weekend?...do tell! I am going to be out dancing, having dinner cooked for me by friends and trying to put my week of non-publishing hell behind me....!! Next week I will start fresh and share all those things I have been promising to for goodness knows how long now ;)

Before I go, just wanted to share this link - Paper plants from Yuko Yamamoto {I can't recall where I found the link originally..thank you to whoever shared!}...they are so inspiring and beautiful.

xo to all.

Hello Abigail,

I got your link from the blog of a friend and I love your work. We share the same passion (as well as the same name): gems and handmade jewelry. May God keep on blessing you with lots of health and talent and success.
