Hot pink necklace - beads and crochet

I just turned around and it is Tuesday already. So, how have you been?

Our household is quite merry; the children brought home and their long vacation finally over we are readying for the new school year. Jacob has declared that he had his share of school and he'd skip it - thank you very much - this being said from a child who is crazy about books and learning - but I know he'll shape up, he just needs a little adjustment.

For the above necklace I mixed some wooden beads and these flowers. But it all started with the little and sweet butterfly. I just had the right palette to create a flowery world around it.

Romantic brooch

Don't you feel great when Friday comes? I always feel joyous, especially if we go away for the weekend. I am looking forward to some long walks by the lake, lounging in the flowery garden, a little reading and of course, the inevitable 'mingling' with the hook.

The brooch for this post was made for the Bloom Collection and it is made of my most favourite crocheted flowers.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!

Pre-wedding excitement

Wow, guys I cannot tell you how excited I am!
Tomorrow is my cousin's wedding and a very special day for us all. I'll officially get another sister!!

So I thought of making a special post to remember the pre-wedding excitement {there were moments when I actually hyperventilated as if this was my own wedding} and things I had prepared for it.

The picture of the dress turned yucky, and believe me it is much more beautiful in reality. The sash is stitched to the dress and the flower (which is gorgeous) is made of layers of grey and fuchsia/purplish silk.

I was clueless as of what kind of jewelry to wear. So I thought pastel, delicate piece would just be the right thing and I whipped up this cutey.

At the front
At the back

When I showed these photos to the hairdresser, she said the style was a piece of cake. We shall see about that tomorrow!

A glimpse of what shades I am to put. In the past I used to hire a professional make up artist for special occasions, but in the last couple of years I do that myself after being complimented on the make up I had done myself.

Well the picture says it all.
{The hair pictures were taken from my board here}

There will be an update of the post :)
