Baubles Bangles and Beads

I've been finding it hard to get my work head back on after my lovely Christmas holiday.  My mind is still having a lovely time over 'there', while my body is having to deal with shop stuff, school stuff, dog stuff, cooking stuff, housework stuff, grey weather day stuff......

On the bright side Emma at Silver pebble has been hosting her monthly Splash of Colour thing.  I must admit I struggled for a while, I mean we're not in Kansas anymore Toto, we're in gloomy old England and it's January for goodness sake.  Luckily for me I have the ever colourful Beatnik for inspiration.

The beads caught my eye

The last pic is a badge (70s possibly 80s) that I found in the shop while I was looking for colourful stuff, I really like it.  I love all our sixties beads too.  We don't seem to sell as many as we used to.  I think they have had their fashion moment, but it will return ( I hope so, we've got loads).

I found some more splashes of colour 


And out.....

Take a look 


For some winter

It works


  1. LOVE! The rainbow beads shot is a total winner. What a great way to bring some warmth into chilly/dreary January! I think I should do a color post of my own...thanks for inspiring!

  2. Holly, you definately should do a colour post... I immediately think about your coloured pencils photo!
