Pretty in Pink

Love these new little earrings - pretty pink and white polka dots just arrived from Janice, our local artist. The beads are hand-made using the lampworking technique - which I think Janice is one of the best!

Sweet Inspiration from Susan Montgomery

"Valentine" 23x30cms

"Make a Wish" 20x30cms

"First Star" 35x35cms

"Floating" 20x30cms

A sweet collection from Susan Montgomery - all stretch canvas and beautifully finished. The colours used in Susan's paintings are like no other - so rich and vibrant. Susan's paintings have been so popular, especially if you are looking for something special for a child's room, but would also work beautifully in other areas of your home.

The SALE was just fantastic - lots of people got some beautiful paintings under their Christmas tree! Here are a couple of photos of the gallery at this moment in time.

Love this beautiful painting "Under a Flame Red Sky"
