Slight Delay… and Bank Holiday

I’m a little late with this WEEKENDS blog post *insert embarrassed face here*.  I’ll be honest I was little over tired and preparing for the Fair we did at Catton Hall’s Dog Show and Garden Party.
I did find time to put together my treasury though. This week is called “Vintage Crafter”, put together with some of the lovely vintage craft things I get excited about, and that remind me of being a child. I grew up surrounded by crafting goodies, I have so many fond memories.
So here it is..

Vintage Crafter
It comes from the heart…
That toy your granny made…
The clothes your mum made….
Those socks that were fixed…
Those button tins…
Those spools and bobbins…
That home filled with love… ♥
I’ve also been listing some items in my Etsy shop… Like pretty matching bow jewellery.

All Wrapped Up – Pink Sparkly Bow Earrings 

All Wrapped Up – Pink Sparkly Bow Necklace

All Wrapped Up – Pink Sparkly Bow Ring
The rings turned out much better than first thought. I’ve always been wary with rings, as I haven’t found many glues I am happy with. But I have found some that is really good, and so far I’ve been really happy with it.
It means that now I’ll be able to work on more ring designs, as well as brooches, clip on earrings and studs! So watch this space!!
Anyway, I thought I’d also share a few pictures from yesterday’s Bank holiday outing. We did a stall at the Catton Hall dog show and garden party. It was not the nicest of weather, but what else do you expect on Bank Holiday Monday? It was rainy and blustery, but we still enjoyed our selves and met some lovely people (and dogs). Still recovering today though, days like that can be really tiring.

Our Stall

A musical puppet thing 9can’t remember what they’re called now.

Hope you all had a lovely bank Holiday too! Please feel free to share your day too!

All Change... ♥

Hey Folks!
It’s been busy week. I’ve been sorting out my website. I decided to change from my original website and go for something snazzy. I headed over to wix to produce a freebie, and have a link to my Etsy shop for any purchases. Hopefully its temporary and I’ll get another super cool web shop in the future, as well as keeping my Etsy shop.
Anyway, here a quick screen shot of what it looks like, but it would be really great if you could follow the link and pop over and take a peek too! http://www.ninefruitspie.co.uk/

I’ve also made a cute new treasury…. Every Child Needs A Rainbow… ♥
I thought it would be nice to make a treasury full of children’s items, and making it even better, a children’s treasury full of rainbows.
So Here it is
Every Child Needs A Rainbow… ♥

The Beauty Of Grace

Hey there folks!!
That week sure came around quick, and it’s been a busy one! I’ve been testing glue out for future creations, it’s been successful! So soon I’ll be making and adding rings, brooches and stud earrings to my etsy shop! It’s very exciting :D
Anyway, on with the treasury!
If you spotted my “song of the week” post from yesterday, this treasury sort of follows on from that. It’s called “The Beauty Of Grace”, and you can find it HERE.
The Beauty Of Grace

I’ve also been receiving some really lovely feedback about my jewellery..  It would be great to get more though. Please pop over to https://www.facebook.com/ninefruitspiejewelleryandaccessories and either write on my wall, or message me. I’d appreciate it.  :)
I haven’t been intensely creating this last week, as I’ve been sorting paperwork, searching for glue, working on new business cards and postcards and all sorts. The things I have been making, I haven’t had a chance to photograph. A bit pants I know, Sorry! So I’ll share this set. the colours match the treasury pretty well, and I think it’s rather cute!
Super Cute Bunny Love
Anyway! Off to get my idea’s for rings and things down before they float away into fairy land! Have a great week folks!!

Song Of The Week - Be My Escape

I thought I’d share with you my song of the week. Be My Escape – Relient K
Be My Escape
This has to be one of my all time favourite Relient K tracks…. But I do have so many favourites by them!
I adore this band, they’re up there in my top 3. “Mmhmm” is an awesome album too.
This song sums up how I can end up feeling a lot of times. You’ll have to give it a good old listen. But I got to say my favourite line in the song is “But the beauty of grace is that it makes life not fair”.
I might make “Song of the Week” a new feature. If so you’ll probably see a few more Relient K songs pop up over the year, but I assure you, they’ll be worth a listen.
Happy Sunday!!
