In The Navy …….

Just a quick post.
You know there are always colours that are asked for that are not the easiest ones to track down…….don’t be silly I hear you say…..but it definitely is true with the colour navy.
People who sell beads all have there own version of navy and when it is ordered its not ‘my’ version of navy. Its invariably lighter than what i think navy should be.
So….finding ‘my’ navy takes time…………BUT I do seem to have had some success :-)
If you are craving a navy necklace or bracelet then pop along to the stall and take alook.
Dont hang around though as it usually flies off the table with all those spring/summer wedding outfits being planned.


I shall be at usual Farmers Markets and also a few local events including The English Festival and Rochester Sweeps so check my calender to find out where I will be in the next month or so.
See you soon :-D

Has Spring sprung ???

As well as lots and lots of beads simplyTrues life now consists of many walks in all types of weather with Dexter Hound.
We are very lucky to have a super area of grass, hills and woods nearby.
Life before dog was sitting at a table threading beads mostly but now my couch potato self is propelled out and about every day walking the handsome Dexter !!
Example yesterday my phone screamed at me 13253 steps taken :-| and my feet know it :-)

Anyway what I was gonna say was that we have seen lots of evidence of Spring springing ……. buds, daffodils, butterflies, nest collecting birds, bees and all the tres and bushes slowly becoming green….. super stuff

Along with Spring comes Mothers Day and Easter………….chocolate and flowers I hear you shout ! ……. But, remember, beautiful beaded jewellery has no calories and lasts longer than flowers…….Oh Yes Oh Yes !!!!!

Come and find me at a Farmers Market soon to take alook at the, always changing, display of necklaces, bracelets and earrings.
Treat your someone special for Mothers Day or Easter……………Hey ! Treat them for both :-D

Pop aloing to my calender page to see where you can find me to see, touch and try on all my new items.

Happy Spring Everyone :-)
