Ole Lynggaard Jewellery

I was drawn in by a beautiful image in a magazine of Helena Christensen , 
on the accompanying page was a shot of beautiful ' organic ' style rings.
Normally that is as far as I would go , admiring the image.
But this time I looked for the web address

I have never been more enthralled reading about a jewellery house.
Words like hand made , capture the colour & light , organic corals , eloquent are but just a few descriptive words used for their obvious love of jewellery designing. I was drawn deeper into the website from their inviting catalogue covers to discovering it is a 50 year Old Danish family business.
The designers are Ole & Charlotte Lynggaard.
I could continue on but I will let you take the journey yourself......

What I also discovered & loved was the ' My Friend Project ' set up by Charlotte Lynggard to help people in West Africa have access to clean drinking water. Charlotte is very concerned with the state of the world & the consequences of global warming . 59 wells later 35, 000 people in the small West African country of Togo have benefited. Here is the link

As I can only dream of one day affording one of these stunning pieces ,
I will leave you with another image of Helena Christensen ,
classic & timeless just like the jewellery.

I went over the Border and.......

Miles of vast open green spaces ,
past Mt Warning & sugar cane fields.......

Up a steep driveway......

To this pretty setting ......

Look at the picture perfect view,
so still & quiet .....

I spent  two of the most wonderful days doing workshops here ,
do you know where I was ?

The answer is on my instagram !
Pop on over & take a look

Mothers Day 2013

My mothers day flower
picked by my gorgeous boy as we walked on the beach in the afternoon.

This was my favourite part of the day. My hand made card from my six year old. I wonder how many more years of these I have to look forward too.......

The kids shop at their school mothers day stall , I was pretty lucky this year ,
 look at this booty ! They doubled up on socks as they didnt know what the other had bought. Worked out perfect as #mum needed some warm woolly socks.

I was also given this beautiful gift box ( daddy had gone shopping )

Look what was inside , sigh , Im in heaven......

We had to drive down the other end of the coast to take a injured baby water dragon to the Currumbin Animal Hospital ( as you do )
While we were down that way we went for a lovely walk on the beach.
Love the vast open space with gorgeous cloudy Autumn sky.
