Awesome crafters!

This isn't a normal sort of post for me,  but I've bought some really lovely items from amazing artists/designers recently and just want to share how great they are!


This ring is by Fruit Bijoux over on Etsy and comes in a range of different colours (and slightly different shapes) they kinda look like they are glowing from the inside when light hits them!  Its also on a really nice quality silver plated ring that's not going to turn my finger green :) Delivery was pretty quick and arrived in a nice box too. 


There are two awesome items in this photo!  The moon collar clips are from ladybirdlikes which I saw Clara wearing on Doctor Who and just had to have (geek)!  It came super quickly considering she must be pretty busy making them for everyone who saw it on the tele the other day!  And really cutely packaged (I'm kinda obsessed with post and how things are wrapped)!
The phone cover is another Etsy find from EmaleyAccessories.  I really like the wood effect finish on mine (and the cacti!) but theres also a nice mountain design and geometric patterned ones.  It took a little while to be made and delivered (from Thailand!) but Ema kept me updated and I am very pleased with the quality and finish of the case.


This last photo is my current project!  My parents have had this dining table and chairs for as long as I can remember and now they have a new set its mine.  They are all dark wood and I have been itching to paint them for years.  I've painted the first chair a pale eggshell and I'm going to distress it and then finish it with a wax.  I'm thinking of painting the table top dark grey and legs bright red!
