Well I can now show you what the girls received for Christmas

I ordered these exquisite rings for the girls from the lovely

Narelle....maker of precious objects

Aren't they just gorgeous......Narelle sells these through her Madeit Store
You can purchase yours here
She also has a blog here
This ring can be custom made to any size and in any colour.
If you don't know your ring size, once you have ordered and paid, Narelle can send you a multi-ringsizer FREE of charge, then you can email her your size.
When you receive your ring, it will fit perfectly.
My girls absolutely love theirs....I'm a gold girl, but I'm seriously thinking about ordering one for myself!!  Just need to work out which colour I like the best.
So head over and take a look, you won't be disappointed!!
I also LOVE the name bead necklace...1 of my faves!

Some people are just not nice......


Hmmmm seems a particular person is getting a bit nasty and is calling my creations "imitations".....well we'll see.....at least Halle Jay DOESN'T do plagiarism!!!!

If they seem to find it that offensive...well perhaps they are feeling a little threatened by my gorgeous creations!! AND perhaps they need to stop leaving "not nice" comments on my blog......considering I've been creating SS Jewellery for the past 4 years....where on earth did they get their ideas from hey???  One particular store in the US - LLD online has some really amazing stuff!!  Her little saying is....I quote "this website contains original graphics and art, so get inspired but don’t steal, karma is real."  Karma will come back and really bite ya on the arse!!
Perhaps copyright of my photos is NOT a good thing also!!  I would love to call her a particular name....but I won't stoop as low as her!!
Take a look and tell me what YOU think of this particular blog.....I think it's NOT NICE!! :-P
My thumbs are down for this blogger!

Wow look what came in the mail!!!
I ordered them on Friday last week and they arrived in the mail yesterday!
How's that for quick service....and free post too!

I bought this little T for the boy for Christmas!!  I think they are just so cute!
He's a bike freak....so I'm sure he'll LOVE it to bits.

This little "Name T" I bought for my 4 month old nephew "Marley" for Christmas...I think he'll look gorgeous in his own personalised little T.
Their T's are machine washable and made in Australia from durable 100% cotton.
So why not pop on over to Playing Chasey and take a look for yourself.
PS....you can still place your last orders for Christmas until 12 December!!!
... so don't miss out!
FREE POSTAGE TOO!!! (post within Australia)

Buttons Buttons Buttons

Earrings, Hair Accessories, Buttons for your hand made creations
These little buttons created by Lou at "Buttons by Lou Lou" are simply gorgeous.  My favourites are the little Deers set and also the Elegant Black Cats.

Buttons by Lou Lou started in 2008 with the idea of making fabric button hair accessories for Lou's children's friends, her niece and for herself....she had been noticing fabric covered buttons at markets and in shops and thought they were a great idea.

After a lot of trial and error finding the right buttons, the right fabrics, and the right accessory attachments Lou finally had some working products and started giving them away as gifts. Her sister then suggested opening a 'shop' on Etsy.com and that took it all to the next level - and it is great fun.

Now she is making gifts and accessories for people all over the world!

So head on over to
and have a look.  Lou also has a web site as well
and also sells through
Some very sweet items....don't forget Christmas is coming up!!

Heck the weather has been torturous here in SA and I've been so busy with orders.  I have had orders for Jewellery, Rugby Tops and Oilcloth bags.  Here's a few things that I've been throwing together.

3 Patch Star Rugby

The Stotty Rugby is one of my faves....

Stotty Rugby

Oilcloth Insulated Lunch Bags

Letter Bow Holder
So that's it for a little while......I need to get back to my machine!!
Have a great day xx
