Things I did before I was 37.

Things I did before I was 37. Hello. This might look at first glance to be one of those “swim with mountains and climb a dolphin” sort of list. It isn’t. Don’t worry.   It isn’t one of those lists for two reasons. 1 – I find them bossy, impossible to emulate and slanted to […]

the cat earrings story

I am really happy to be bringing back these earrings as a part of my new core collection. The first two people I showed the new pieces to asked me why – Why did I include 2 little silver cats….? Well people are either dog people or cat people, I guess – and the studs […]

The many perils of Hallowe’en and a rubbish cake.

Just a quick note really. Don’t order a takeaway on Hallowe’en night. Bounding to the door with paper money can only lead to bad places when there is only a tiny vampire there. And money was far better than the treat he was expecting…. – a further note – to whichever of my neighbours was […]
