Hi all....;o) So, it's nearly the end of October and the festivities of the fast approaching Christmas season are becoming more apparent! Up at our local Mall yesterday, they were putting up the huts/sheds for the German market stalls...not sure they're just German, but they do have some lovely things!!....well they did a couple of years ago!
And of course the ice rink!...I quite fancy having a go this year!!..with the kids of course!!...;o)
Below are some of the beads I have been making. I'm still LOVING the gold leaf and want to explore some beads and bead sets with this on.
How about the Holly leaves!!...do you like them?..I think they are just fab!..they make me smile..;o) I'd love to make enough leaves and berries to make a glass wreath...maybe not a full sized one, as Christmas may have come and gone by then!..;o)

Okay...so I'm still having a bit of a love affair with gold leaf!!..;o)
Here' I'm going through some of the colours I feel it may look best on!!...some definitely work better than others and I've got more trials to do yet!
I'm hoping to get some good torch time in tomorrow and make up for the lack of it yesterday and today!...

Hi folks...I've been busy photographing, measuring, stringing, listing etc...but here you go...some ready to roll beautiful pure gold leaf beadies and leaves...;o)
I've been having soo much fun playing with the gold leaf!....I've got a whole load to clean and photograph now, in an array of different colours! Pictures later or more likely tomorrow..;o)

So today I'm still somewhat obsessed with Autumn!!..particularly leaves...;o)
I'm also rather in love at the moment with rich colours and have been taking advantage of this with some beautiful gold leaf!
My pumpkin's have been quite popular, so have made another one..;o)
All below will hopefully be strung and on my website tomorrow! Where does the day go!?....before you know it, the light has nearly gone and photographs are just not good!
Although I'm getting much more back into the making, taking pics and sharing them around swing...the darker nights are against me...will have to get my butt into gear and take pics in the morning or lunchtime maybe!......;o)

As promised...."Christmas puddings"...I made two of them and then thought...that would be fun as a fridge magnet!!..so I adapted it to suit!...and I have to say, I'm rather pleased with them..;o)
The "Cup Cake" ring topper has been taken a liking to by my sister!...she bakes the most fabulous cakes, Victoria sponges, lemon drizzle cakes....to name but a few and also makes fantastic jams and chutney's ..yum!!

So..I've been somehow rather drawn towards making some Halloween style beads!..Not my normal thing, but I found them soo much fun..;o)
I've even started on some Christmas ones too!...Christmas puds for starters. Pics later, they're drying after being cleaned and I must dash....off to see my sister and my niece!
