Yay! Today is the last working day of the year for me. I'm taking a blog break for the Christmas and New Year period, so I can catch up on some much needed family time and relaxing (though I might not get too much of the second done).
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all my bloggy friends, thanks for filling my days with smiles, inspiration and pretty things!
Well I couldn't do a blog post without something pretty to look at...so I hope you enjoy these owl brooches by Charlotte.
Also if you missed the Jacky Winter Illustration/Singing Bird exhibition last night then you can still go along tonight. I will be.

This necklace is adorable, it features a tiny elephant in a cage hanging from a long sterling silver necklace. The necklace is all handcrafted from sterling silver by designer Halligan Norris. This is the type of necklace dreams are made of.

Its that time of year when you look back and reflect on what you have done, mistakes you've made, the good things and everything in between. This year has been alot about finding my inner creativity again.

Also my sister is having a giveaway on her blog to celebrate 101 sales on Etsy...if you like her art or you just wanna have a squiz..click here.
