A Weekend Like Spring

What a beautiful weekend we have just had. The weather was very much like a perfect Spring day. Just when I was feeling so worn out from all the cold that we have been having Spring came knocking at the door. I think there should be more of those days.

I was planning on making a lot of charms but you don't let beautiful days like those go to waste so I spent most of both days in the garden and only managed to get a few charms made.
In the evening I tried my hand at ebay to see what treasures could be found and I was fortunate enough to find this old, black and white wooden rule. I was so pleased as they are not easy to find here in Australia and I really wanted one for measuring things in the shop....and it HAS to fit into the overall colour scheme of course:) I also bought 500 sterling silver jump rings for a bargain for all the charms I need to make and a sterling silver ball chain necklace for a steal. What a buzz it is bidding on ebay!



  1. Angela your charms are gorgeous.
    You and Cathy are going to have such fun with the new shop.

  2. Those are absolutely gorgeous!

  3. Congrats on your findings! I love the ruler! And your charms of course! I have never dared to try out E-bay.....I think I would have gone completely bonkers on all the things I could buy....better safe and sorry eh? For me at least!

    Hope you have more wonderful spring days in the garden!

    Hugs and smiles
