Jingle Sox Are Here !!

I am so pleased to finally have some pics of my new line of Christmas stockings - Jingle Sox! I have designed them as a decorative piece or they are completely usable as they are fully lined! They will be available in my etsy shop soon so please look out for them!

My Sister, Sue, who most of your know is an artist, has helped me out a bit with my Christmas stock by designing a gorgeous range of Antique shabby Christmas ornaments. They will be in my etsy shop in the next couple of days for you to purchase. Here is a taste of them. These ornaments are so beautifully made, You have to see them in person to catch the fine details and gorgeous finish on then all. The fine antique gold detailing is painted by hand, added to the beautiful vintage scrapping paper that has been artistically placed on and then a varnish sealed finished and with touches of organza and satin ribbon make them more than just an ornament, more like an heirloom. Add some class to your Christmas!

Please let me know what you think of our Christmas range, as I said, this is only part of it, but we are having so much fun making it and I will have them on etsy in the next few days!

Take care and have a great week.

Lets try again shall we...

Well hopefully I am back in the land of blogging for a bit, things have been crazy busy and that flu took me out again. I have been busy in the last few days finishing up some more Christmas stockings and will hopefully have the pics of them up soon but for now hope you enjoy these!! Much has happened -

the songstress got a new baby - aptly names "Baby"

I have a new toy that I am totally in love with - I have been wanting one since before the model's wedding but with all the other 'wedding expenses' buying a Kitchenaid to make the wedding cupcakes seemed a bit ridiculous. Anyway, I am absolutely wrapt with it! I got the Apple green as it goes with my kitchen and I love the retro feel of it!!!!
Had to make Mr Deekie Belle and the rockstar huge choccy cake

And as strawberries are in season, vanilla cuppycakes with buttercream frosting for the girls

... this one was for me hehe!


The glam girl had her school dinner dance - hmmmm isn't she gorgeous!

Last but not least, the best news in the world - I have held off sharing this as it is always better to wait to make sure that everything is fine but I am getting so excited that I really can't hold it in any more! In March I will become a Nana! Our darling model girl and the other rock star  are having a little boy and we are over the moon! Here is a picture of her with her little "bump" (and yes that is the rock star in the background waving goodbye to the whole restaurant - typical!)

Hope that you are all really well and happy and will hopefully be around alot more! Take care

..........It's here, it's here!!!!

Sorry for the long absence.... (rotten cold and flu season **grumble grumble**)

Some of you may remember that I recently blogged about Kim, the very talented seamstress and blogger behind Retro Mama. I was drooling over her Giant Pear Pillow and it's 'whimsical' qualities and guess what - Now I have one of my own!! Isn't it BEEE-U-DI-FULLL!

I know you don't normally keep a pillow in the middle of your coffee table but I had to give it pride of place - it is the cutest thing I have ever seen!

Kim also added, as a little gift to me, her new 'mini' pear which she is reproducing as a Christmas ornament - these can be found in her etsy shop! (here is mine hanging with a few of my other little softies)

Thank you Kim, I love them!! (I knew I would!)

Be back later with more Deekie Belle updates!
