She was a one of a kind movie star, legend and icon.

When I am studying at my desk, Toto lies on the floor next to my chair (on a very soft cuddly blanket) and goes to sleep. I love how animals curl themselves up into 1/4 of their size when they are sleeping xxxxxxxxx


One of the other Cardigan clips I made on Monday night. They were also clip on earrings. I love this shade of green and I have a hat in the same shade that I wear when I wear these.Emerald city here I come!xxxxx
Some cute wee bead bracelets I picked up at Diva. I chose the colours to match accessories and clothing I have in the same shades. The white one has rose beads all the way round, so pretty.

This gorgeous brooch was a gift I received from my dear friend Vanessa (Vanessa and her partner Warren have a wonderful blog-Two Squirrels Vintage). Thankyou Vanessa!!xxxxx

Made these last night (with help from my beloved with the glue gun......and the pliers...Ok he pretty much did all the work) I have wanted some for a long time, and decided to try making some.
Here is the recipe!
- clip on earrings
-plain necklace chain
-hot glue gun
Clip the necklace up into strands of the right length, and hot glue them to the underside of the earrings and done!!! Cardi clips!! I made 3 pairs last night as I have so many earrings I don't wear. I shall photograph the rest over the next few days. xxxxxxxxxxxx

Friday 18th March was a day for remembering those who perished in the February Earthquake, and for taking the time to take in what has happened to our beautiful city. A memorial service was held in Hagly Park, the main park in the centre of the city, and my beloved and I went and took Bob and Toto with us. There were some beautiful speeches, including some from our mayor Bob Parker (who is doing a wonderful job holding the city together in this strange time), our Prime Minister John Key (also doing a very good job I may add), and Prince William, to name a few. It was a beautiful, sad and emotional service that made me realize just how much I love this city and how strongly I feel that we will get it back on its feet. My favourite part of the service was when they got different religions to share some words each (Jewish, Muslim, Buddhism, Hindu and Christian)as although I am not a religious person myself, it is important to recognise all the many nationalities of lives that this earthquake took. My bubby and I, they experienced the earthquake too so they came with us to the service. He was pretty happy to be at the park! xxx
You can't quite see it here, but in the far distance is a plane tagline in the sky that reads 'rise up Christchurch'. xxxx

My thoughts are with those that have lost someone in this quake, and to those in Japan, still fighting the aftermath of the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown. Kia Kaha xxxxx

Just a wee post to say I am thinking of everyone in Japan at the moment after the horrific 8.9 magnitude earthquake that hit on Friday 11th March, leading to a massive Tsunami.
My thoughts are with everyone there, and particularly those who have loved ones missing.
