The Christmas Bling

Due to popular request (giggles) my Christmas ‘bling’ appears here. The sterling silver necklace features a rare filigree spoon handle; I have two different ones and have not yet found more. The heart and amythyst piece above the spoon is a silver brooch given to me decades ago – and now looks silly on its own against my large body
The wonderful large beads are hand made in Nepal and their caps are engraved sterling silver, the smaller round beads are vintage speckled glass.
Christmas Day was bliss, lovely family, huge quantities of delicious food (Which is always calorie free on public holidays), delightful gifts, bubbly and an adorable neice who got so much joy from unwrapping gifts and playing with new toys.

Archer would like me to tell you that he was a very good boy – and he was! I came home and cooked fresh fish for Charles and Phantom so all boys were spoilt too.

Oh this is beautiful Julie!!! I am sure it looked lovely on your neck. Your spoon necklaces are wonderful and I have worn the one you made for me 3 days in a row now!
Am very pleased to hear that food is calorie free on public holidays - very good news indeed :).
Glad Archer was a good boy. And I am sure your gorgeous boys enjoyed their fish (you are a good mama).
