Great Balls Of Colour

I have been inspired by today's glorious weather......

I'm thinking pretty flowers, playful prints and Bright colours which led me to list this bold colourful Great Balls Of Colour Felted Bead Necklace with satin ribbon tie- absolutely perfect for today's fabulous sunshiny day.

According to the weatherman it's only gonna get better so more summer listings to come.

I'm a member of the Mad Mayhemmers, a crazy bunch who have set the challenge of listing an item a day in May.

It's challenging but really a lot of fun, everyone is lovely, supportive and very talented so I'd like to share some of the listing from today.

OK soooo cheating a bit as this piece wasn't actually listed today but I think it's stunning, Spring Bead Hand Knitted & Crochet Handbag by NOfkantsCurios.

Very delicate great colour Cocktail Bracelet by Swirls And Squiggles.

Gorgeous Sterling Silver & Butter Jade Stud Earrings by Deborah Jones Jewellery.

If you would like to see more MM listing from today see Here and don't forget to stop by these great shops.

Psst.... Like this blog follow me.....oh and pass it on.
