I'm working on a new series yet again but the little man has been all cranky and out of sorts so it's gonna take a while I reckon. Doesn't help that he's not been sleeping great at night either! We've not slept beyond 3 hours at a stretch for such a long time that I wonder if my body even remembers how to! Sigh.

Today's offering is a cute pair of whimsical Scrat earrings (remember that wonky squirrel from Ice Age?), now available in the shoppe. Also check out the kickass black version of Charlotte Rose with the same lovely lace roses with sultry red swarovskis. Gotta go now, more updates coming up soon!

It's so nice to be able to have a separate site for the jewellery so this blog can really be what it should be, a blog! Of pictures and words, updates and love, family and friends... and not be a mish mash of everything all rolled in one. Even I get confused sometimes navigating my own blog! Haha!Prices stated in the bigcartel shoppe are in US dollars but only paypal payments are accepted. For existing and new local customers, please feel free to email or text me for other preferred modes of payment (bank transfer/cheques). I will then send you a revised invoice in Singapore dollars and maybe throw in some niceties :)
New designs are out in the shoppe so do check them out!

Vivienne's sunshine personality, dogged persistance in pursuing her dream and her unbelievable customer service makes her a rare breed. More importantly her devotion to her craft is what makes each Fuchsia Lane design such a classic must-have for the chinoiserie lover. I am almost embarrassed to admit that I own quite a number of Fuchsia Lane pieces but hey, my blog is named Oriental Rose, no?
When Vivienne had her first solo fashion showcase"In Love With Passion" at the Arts House last October, I was 5 months pregnant and busy steam ironing her then-latest collection hours before the launch. I remember thinking, dang I wish I could fit into these beauties! Fast forward 9 months later and here I am! Making a long-awaited visit to her new fashion suite where customers can enjoy trying on her creations in the comfort of her cosy atelier.
I could not resist the Sapphire Silk Top and Charleston Lace Skirt in Turquoise that I'm wearing above. As you can see, I'm clueless when it comes to posing for the camera and gee I still have lots of mummy weight to lose!!

I forgot where I got the link from but I simply had to try it and the result is hilarious!
You can make your own Stick Figure Family here.
They didn't have a baby sprawled on his back so Nathan will have to make do with this standing bub. Daddy has so litle hair it seems our little guy won't stand a chance either! Haha!

Right now her family and loved ones are busy working against time to raise half a million Singapore dollars for a treatment only available in a US hospital to improve her chances of survival. Please help them give feisty Charmaine a fighting chance by supporting them in their fundraising efforts. We can do what we can by contributing financially, encouraging Charmaine and her family as well as spreading the word so that more can help.
More importantly let us give them hope that we care because every child's life is precious and even more so that little Charmaine is one of our own.
You can read about Charmaine's story here and find out more on cash donations and other fundraising efforts here.
