Favourite Thing On a Friday - Silver Danglers - Bliss List # 8

I've had a bit of a segue over the past week or two.  Showing pages from my art journal.  To redress the balance, I'd like to share with you a new design I put together recently.  My sister is now the delighted owner of these silver and peruvian opal drop earrings.

Her reaction when she unwrapped them is my Favourite Thing On A Friday this week. "Ooh, wow, gorgeous!" Followed by her putting them straight on.  You don't get much more positive feedback than that. Thanks sis.  I'm glad you love them.

Not too shabby.  Even if I do say so myself.  Have you had a great reaction to a present you've made for someone?

Little Bliss List # 8

  • My friend coming to cut back all the plants in my garden.  It really means a lot that my friend offered her help in this way.  Thank you.  
  • Crying laughing with my friend.
  • Getting a hug from my nephews.  They are taller than me now.  I love them both so much. Where did that time go?
  • Showing my mum and dad my art journal and having them tell me how much they love my paintings.  I'm 43, and it still feels great to know your mum and dad think you're fab!
  • Steve making me laugh.
  • Getting an enormous chocolate bunny for Easter from my sister and her family.  Not being able to wait until Easter Sunday to eat him.  Biting into the ears and feeling a bit like I was committing Easter Bunny-ocide. Sincerely apologising to the chocolate bunny for eating him. Telling him how ruddy, bloody tasty he was.
  •  Seeing a sparrow land on the garden lawn with a mouth full of small downy feathers.  Watching him fly into the eaves of my house to, literally, feather his nest.
How has your week been?  I'm linking up with Liv Lane again.  If you fancy linking up with Favourite Thing on a Friday, just enter your blog post into the link tool below and we'll be over to say hello.  


P.S. These earrings are my monthly make for April!

  6. I agree - no matter how old, it's so nice to have our parents' adoration.
    I think I need a friend like your's to come and work on my gardens for a while. They are in desperate need!
    Thanks for sharing your list.

  8. I think I'm going to have to report you to the RSPCA for cruelty to bunnies!
    I'm just jealous because I'm on diet and chocolate is a no no.
    Hope you have a great Easter! :0)

  9. They're beautiful, like all your pieces. I've actually just had a go at making earrings and am loving it - given that I am such a jewellery fan I'm amazed it took me so long. I'll post when I've taken some photos x

  13. those earrings are truly beautiful, no wonder your sister loved them so!

    The last thing I made as a gift for someone was an Easter lollipop "pot plant".
    She took one look at it and said "wow, I can't believe an adult made that" and it kinda put me off after that, but I do make lots of stuff for us.

    Your artwork is a delight- I love the background on your header

  18. Hi Emma,

    This is Nupur from BBTL. I was busy with a project. Finally, after submitting it successfully yesterday, I decided to take a well deserved :):) break before the next project starts from Monday.
    The earrings are gorgeous! I am sure your sis must be very happy! I love your colourful header, and somehow your blog reminds of a beautiful patchwork quilt. Keep posting.
