Bonbi Forest treats

Here is my Bonbi Forest journey in pictures. I have been eyeing up Lee May Foster's work and jewelery for a while now, and as soon as pay day arrived I decided to treat myself. I was so excited when the parcel arrived, but I didn't expect the amazing packaging that was inside. It was so much fun un-wrapping the necklace, the box was so intricate and gorgeous. I loved the little arrows showing me the way in. A truly fabulous way to package somthing, professional and fun. You can buy your own bit of fun at www.bonbiforest.com

And here is the gem inside the origami box, a stunningly made necklace. I've not taken it off since it arrived, its perfect for dressing up a simple white tee. Love it, more treats will be winging their way to sunny Scotland I think.

'Red sky at night...'

Here is my newest piece of original work, 'Red sky at night...'. It is a chalk pastel drawing that is professinally mounted using white board. The drawing will soon be available to buy in my Folksy shop. If you would like the drawing to be framed I can do that for you, but the delivery time will be longer.
I have tried to capture the vivid colours I have seen in the many stunning Morayshire sunsets. This drawing is from memory, not a photograph. Hope you like it. Comments and opinions appreciated.
