On a side note, I have decided that my personal photos on Flickr should now be only viewable by those on my friends and family lists. Not that I have become a victim on online photo ripping (at least I am not aware of any!), but I would like to take precautions and protect the privacy of my friends and loved ones. No heads on topless bodies please! Of cos for those who know me personally, I will be glad to add you to my list of friends so that you can share in the embarrassing evidence of my exploits hee. Just drop me a line! :)

It's actually quite cool hearing the hubster's stories of his family vacations growing up cos the places they went to were of cos totally different from where we went. I think my first holiday was to Genting in Malaysia when I was 6. After that came nearby Asian destinations like Hongkong, Japan, Korea, China and the occasional Australian foray. Yes i was very spoilt as a child by parents who loved to travel so i guess i sort of inherited that wandering trait from them.
Now imagine spending a week in a rustic MASSIVE chateau in the French countryside with its own lake and woods and having to drive to the nearest town for food cos it is that rustic. Wow. That's the kind of holiday the hubster had. It sounds so... exotic. Like something we read about in Under a Tuscan Sun or A Year in Provence, but never actually get the chance to do. This idea of a French chateau vacation has become like my own mini obsession, you should see how many friends I've driven nuts with all that talk of a provencal holiday! Hopefully we'll be able to find time during our trip back to England in August for a short getaway to (maybe)France? Haha. Our friends absolutely loved Barcelona and I've heard of how beautiful Prague is so right now I'm just spoilt for choice! Hee.
Ok time to get a grip before I swoon into another of my wanderlust moods (they are so hard to wake up from). Time to start a new holiday fund!
Ah here's a loonnnggg waist length necklace which can be wound twice, thrice round the neck for different layered looks that was ordered as a birthday gift ~ I've always dug the layering look but never got round to actually work on them. This season though I've really gotten into the mode so expect more layered necklaces soon!
Jo boasts stronger colours than her sisters (how apt!) with carnelian teardrop brios, tourmaline heart brios and little clusters of emerald and rubies. I like! Drop is 3.8cm from goldfilled hooks ~
Still on the neverending journey of finishing custom orders (which is a good thing- i'm not complaining!) but here's a mini-series I did on the side to amuse myself hee. Little flower clusters in colours of spring :) First is Amy, with tangerine shades and brios of carnelian, peridot, phrenite, freshwater pearls and moonstone rondelles. Drop is 4cm from goldfilled hooks ~

Now I have to go take some paracetemol for this headache of mine and finish up those necklaces. I can't wait to finish this batch and then take another long break. We'll be heading up to Port Dickson in Malaysia for our church camp followed by my annual holiday with the girls. This time we're headed to Japan yay! Flipping excited about the onsen, food and of cos the shopping for jewellery supplies! Sheer bliss.
