Lets paint the town floral

I love adding to my jewellery collection, I could do it daily, perhaps hourly if only my bank balance would allow it :) Sadly it does not. Lately I've started to make some more of my own jewellery as a way of trying to possibly counteract the amount of money I spend on buying it but it hasn't really worked. I love making my own things, but I still can't resist buying bits in the shops either. I think I will just have to be written off as a hopeless addict

This was the first flower necklace that I made
I love the colours , its a perfect summery necklace to wear with shorts
in the summer

*Uhhhh...bad photo of me! please excuse me in the picture, I hate having my picture taken but this was the one that showed the necklace the best. Sigh. Just ignore the girl and look at the necklace :)*
I just finished this necklace last week. It took blody AGES to make all the little flowers but
it was worth it in the end. I love the colours in it and it goes quite well with most of my wardrobe so thats a plus :)

I made this one back in the summer :) I love the blue and cream fabric and the little hearts in the middle of the flowers. This one I attached to a silver chain that I wasn't using.

Little accessorise style purse I made back in the summer. I love accessrize purses they are all so pretty and sweet, but I can't justify buying heaps of them as I would no doubt forget to use some. This was kind of like a trial and error type purse, I wasnt sure how it would turn out, but I do actually really like it for a first attempt. Just the right size for putting my bank card, lip gloss and some loose change in for summery evenings in a pub garden :)

I love this headband because I love the colours and the shape to it :)

 I love all the floral headbands that are around at the moment. I would love to wear them but I always feel a bit wierd with headbands in my hair I'm not entirely sure they suit me :|  This is my little sister  modeling it for me. She was really patient bless her as it was absolutley freezing outside and as you can see shes just wearing a t-shirt. Thanks megs :)

Fabric flower bracelet that I made in uni. I don't really wear this I just keep it on my
dressing table to look pretty :)
One of the flower necklaces I made for uni

I would love to have this as a full time job :) I think I would have died and gone to heaven; working with pretty sparkly things for a living :D
love and kisses
