i-sew-cute treasures !

Shell-necklace-1

Today my treasures, 3 of them and more, arrived from an amazing craftswoman, June, based in Ohio USA.

I am thrilled with my large heart shaped pendant, filled with real tiny sea-shells and star-fish, and with my deer ring – so cute and sweet and cheery against a vivid blue and snowy background scene.

You can see from June’s Etsy store, link above, that her imaginative and highly beautiful and creative jewellery is creating quite a “storm” e.g. Miley Cyrus wears an  **  i-sew-cute **  large sparkling red heart shaped ring.

My own interest in these treasures began a while ago when I bought 2 of June’s heart shaped Unicorn pendants.  I gifted these to my 2 young nieces, whom love them.

Well, this ocean themed pendant and the dear ring are mine!  Even though I have got small hands, I actually wear large “statement” type rings, and I LOVE bling, and I love my 2 new pieces of jewellery, thank you to June.

In the photo I’m wearing what I call my “Kylie” glasses – they are my reading glasses (and I call them my Kylie glasses because they look somewhat like something I thought Kylie Minogue would wear, LOL) …. and you can see just how large the sparkly pendant is too – at 2.5 inches x 2 inches.  The pendant and ring are made from eco-friendly resin and glitter, and the ring band is quite adjustable.

Lately I have been feeling quite depressed at work because although I am a nice person and do my utmost in my workplace to include and support all others, I have moved to an expanded work team at a new location within the CBD / city – – –  and not feeling understood / acknowledged / appreciated or genuinely supported – even to the extent that women in my own immediate team whom I have shown the aforementioned to – –  were lashing out at me.   Too many harsh things one after the other – so RETREAT …..  I couldn’t face them again so I took the day off work.

No, I do not bury my head in the sand and avoid resolutions, or get unnecessarily angry with anyone.  I always try to make sense of things and try to improve my own-self in terms of my relationships with others and getting what I truly want – which is the aforementioned.

Sometimes this takes a huge effort ….. and you know what ??

You can expect nice surprises from Life, as well as not so pleasant unexpected things, I have learned.  With my jewellery, June also kindly sent me a gorgeous rainbow Cat-Unicorn !!  Here she is.  I gave a cry of delight when I saw this card and exclaimed “Oh, that is sewwwww cute”.    It is and it has warmed my Heart.    This sweet colourful surprise has helped heal me today, as has my heart pendant and animal themed dome shaped ring.

So, as you travel through Life, keep your heart open for rewards and nice surprises.

And for some gorgeous and uplifting jewellery head over now to

Make sure you read all of June’s “Announcements” and her “About” page.   June is not only a gifted artisan but an inspiration to me, and I wish June and her family well.  Now, my rainbow Unicorn cat, my deer friend & my Star-fish and Sea-shells are all going to have a rendezvous with me, and we will relax, surf the waves (so to speak) and be happy.

Thank you June.

FIFA World Cup Soccer 2014

The 2014 World Cup Soccer Quarter Finals are on soon, and who knows who will win?  I love the soccer and have been watching all of the Matches as recorded.  They are playing in the early hours of Australia.  I have been really impressed by some of the Goal-keepers, like the Nigerian goal-keeper, and of course with Lionel Messi of Argentina.  His crosses and goals have been fabulous, and he can’t win the matches by himself, but must feel alot of pressure upon him.  There have been some surprises, like Spain and Portugal out of the Round of 16.  I was impressed by Nigeria and Mexico going into the Round of 16 and disappointed that Mexico didn’t make it to the Quarter Finals. and am delighted that Costa Rica is going into the Quarter finals.  What an interesting match that was, against Greece.

With all its controversial Referee decisions, and in the background, protestors angry about the amount of money spent on the World Cup at the expense of health and education in Brazil ( why not have BOTH the World Cup and Health / Education ), I have been enjoying the Soccer.

Cavalia – Beautiful & Breathtaking

The Media reported that the Equestrian Artistic Show CAVALIA is beautiful and breathtaking, and I found it to be just that.

Perth, Western Australia is fortunate to be graced with several Cavalia performances in 2013, and my sister and I attended the matinee show on Sunday 15 December.   Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide have been added to Cavalia’s first ever Australian tour in 2013.

The lavish production, which has been seen by over four million people in Northern America and Europe, explores the relationship between humans and horses through the ages and features 48 horses and 36 riders, aerialists, acrobats, dancers and musicians from all over the world.

A constantly changing digital background projected onto a 60 metre-wide screen is designed to draw audiences into a dream-like world and a 50 metre-wide stage gives the horses enough space to gallop at full speed.

Cavalia is held in the largest touring tent in the world – a white, 2,440-square-metre big top, which rises about 35 metres high.

I can sum up my experience of Cavalia in a word  –  “unforgettable”.

Hairspray 2007 Musical Movie

You can’t stop the beat
as it comes speeding down the track.
Child, yesterday is history
And it’s never coming back
Cause tomorrow is a brand new day
and it don’t know white from black
Cause the world keeps spinning
round and round
and my heart is keeping time
to the speed of sound.
I was lost until I heard the drums
then I found my way
Because you can’t stop the beat
