Monday Must Haves #16

Wow.  It's been a helluva fortnight and I am *so* glad it's over and I finally have some time to myself!  I've been neglecting my social life, my family, my blog and my crafting for the last two weeks because of hectic and long hours at work, so now is the time to get things back to normal (^_^)

This past week, I've been coveting a lot of pretty jewellery; my job doesn't allow me to wear any jewellery at all, so every morning I have to take it all off and leave it at home before I head out.  I know it's for food safety and hygiene but I miss my lip ring, earrings and bracelets!  I've also had my eye on yarns and mittens this week, as it's gotten so much colder recently and I'd love to crochet myself a cute pair of fingerless gloves to wear on chilly mornings!

Free Necklace Dichroic Glass Pendant
♥ This necklace is *so* pretty; I love the shape of it and the depth and variety of colours.  It's so eye-catching, wouldn't it be such a conversation starter?

Handspun Yarn - Provence - 125 Yards
I *need* to make something out of this yarn; isn't it gorgeous?  With Halloween just around the corner, I love the blend of yellows, greens, blues and purples in this hand-spun yarn.  It'd make such a beautiful scarf!

antique brass victorian scissors bracelet
♥ This style of jewellery isn't one I'm usually drawn to but I really like this piece.  It's so dainty and elegant whilst being so pretty and detailed (I love that little flower!) It looks super snazzy when it's worn, too!

Knitted Fingerless Gloves (Wrist Warmers, Arm Warmers, Fingerless Mittens, Fingerless Mitts)  - Clover Colors - TO ORDER
♥ Okay, so forget me actually making something for myself, *these* gloves are perfect!  Lots of different, warm colours in soft, snuggly wool (^_^) I find full gloves are a bit fiddly for me so I like to have my fingers free - these are definitely on my wish-list.

Along The Nile - Triple Wrap Ryolite on Leather.
♥ I love everything about this wonderful wrap bracelet; it's feminine yet funky, it's wearable with everything, intricate but simple at the same time.  At this time of year especially, I love to wear autumnal, natural colours and this would be the perfect addition to my jewellery collection!

I hope you've all been good the last couple of weeks; I've got some serious catching up to do with you all!  In other news, S has finished filing for his application so it's all out of our hands - we're waiting to hear back so we're really excited and tense to get the news!  I finished the doll for his sister and have a 'how I did it' post planned for some time this week.  Now I'm going to spend the rest of the day relaxing and working on my art journal (^_^)



  1. That last bracelet is so right up my alley! :L

    Also... WELCOME BACK!!! ^_^

  2. Heyyyyy! Have you shared your art journal on your blog yet?? I want to see! And that's a big bummer that you can't wear jewelry to work :-/ Boo...
