In August I tackled a DIY jewellery project I'd been dying to try: making an inexpensive agate necklace from a slice of agate bought from a gift shop during a trip! Happily, it was a success - thanks to Hubby's help!
Unfortunately, the orange dress I was wearing when I showed off my new necklace turned out to be weirdo catnip and was thus rejected from the "clothes for the trip" pile. It is tucked safely in my closet at home!
That's okay, I like turquoise better anyway. And I professed my love in a whole post dedicated to turquoise goodness.

. . . then shared some jewellery finds (along with an "oops" moment) . . .
. . . and even went thrifting with my pal Gemma . . .
I shared my big scary news: moving to Hungary for four months! And that's why I closed down our Etsy shop after a few weeks fun - and sales! We'll reopen next year, hopefully with some goodies from Hungary.
Despite my packing and preparing frenzy, I did have time to whip up some crafts and DIYs (many yet to be revealed). I shared the start of one, using a pool noodle for a wreath form.
Then I made some white felted flowers, to gussy up my Expedit bookcase.
Speaking of bookcases, a reader totally made my day when she shared her version of my Artful Ikea Expedit Hack.
I could have been more productive, but I made time to spend with Hubby last month. I'm so glad I did because I miss him terribly!
