and now i am emptying to be filled up again. happy new year, everyone! blessings!
tomorrow is a big day for theLeidy's trinket box! i am calling out to the universe to have everything in my favour. wish me luck!

or better yet, pray for me.

watch this space.
it's almost the end of the year and looking back at the year that has just gone, it amazes me how good God has been to me and my family. blessed, i am. and to summarize my 2009, here goes:

faith. love. God. one. child. mom. dream. fight. new. trust. joy. risk. heat. hope. break. friend. move. fly. work. ex. heal. fear. plan. pray. choice. run. pure. new. write. ache. build. fire. grudge. quench. light. dark. war. lie. hand. give. take. loss. start. warmth. here. now. bliss. pain. grow. live. step. talk. hug. play. goal. yes. laugh. home. I. you.

big things have little names.


and they come in small packages too.

my precious little daughter, lilly soleil, was supposed to turn one yesterday, the 17th of december, but she was in a hurry and came 8 weeks early. she is now almost 14 months old, a bit tiny, but a packed little button of energy.

oh, how you always take my breath away.


it's always wonderful to end a year with a beginning. doesn't it? we're moving house tomorrow and i'm looking forward to it. i will miss our tiny little yard that my husband has allowed to wildly grow (aka forgot to maintain). i have this view everyday, while working, and i just love dandelions! they are resilient, will grow anywhere, and multiply. yes, i know they're weeds, but still! pretty!

lately i have rediscovered my love for black. i used to have black plates and cups and pillowcases in my old apartment, but i have slowly introduced colour to my things when i got married. i even wanted to paint my apartment walls black! such an elegant and beautiful colour.

recently i have gotten my hands on some gorgeous acrylic flowers, thus i made this:

necklace black rose wing stunning elegant


this necklace features a stunning black rose mounted on a gold plated filigree finding. attached to the rose are two antiqued brass wings connected to a chain of delicately wire-wrapped onyx beads. the necklace is approximately 50cms (19.7inches) long from end to end and has a 5cm (2inch) extension chain finished with a tiny antiqued brass wing charm for when you want to wear it a little bit longer.

a perfect accessory to add a little bit of sexy mystery to your outfit!


i have also made two of these rings, but they have been purchased already! i may have to make more, methinks. and i'm also keeping one for myself.
