Colour Swatch - Silver

Every cloud has a silver lining

I am on a roll - a silver roll .... I love using monochromatic colours and seeing what designs evolve.  At the moment I am in love with silver tones.  I am in the throes of creating four cuffs utilising these tones over the course of the next couple of weeks ... here are some of the beads that I have collected for this exercise

Sunday Drive - Noosa

“My soul is full of longing for the secrets of the sea, and the heart of the great ocean sends a thrilling pulse through me.” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

With the advent of spring and the beautiful warm weather that has returned, it was fabulous to get up early and go for a drive to Noosa.  I accompanied a friend to visit this small busy spot approximately two hours north of Brisbane (home).

Noosa is a bustling beach suburb where many from all walks of life come to play and relax.  In the height of summer it is jam packed with tourists and visitors.  We arrived early to enjoy a lovely breakfast in one of the many cafes and wandering through the many beach side shops.  The highlight of the trip was to walk along the boardwalk and sit in the sun enjoying the water and beach views.

My soul is now revived for the week ahead.
