Beautiful Things

"To be creative means to be in love
with life. You can be creative only if
you love life enough that you want 
to enhance its beauty, you want to
bring a little more music to it, a little
more poetry to it, a little more dance to it." 

  I am so enjoying finding beautiful things to sell and creating special treasures with my Mum. It is a wonderful feeling being able to make something pretty and share it with you. Thankyou so much to everyone for your support and for the outpouring of sweet compliments and encouragement about the GILLYFLOWERS. It has been just wonderful introducing my projects to you! Thankyou again and again for your kindness! I have added MORE beautiful treasures to the Etsy Shop which I think you will love! I hope you will stop by for a visit. Here are some photos to wet your appetite...

"Summer, after all, is a time when 
wonderful things can happen to quiet people."
                     ~Deb Caletti

    I am SO excited to share this post with you because I am sharing something that I have been working on for months! -A little project that captured my interest early in the year and that I have been giving time and dreaming to ever since. A new addition to the Jennelise Etsy Shop that my beautiful Mum and I have created together. It was her idea actually - she saw a picture somewhere and said "We could do that!". We have been collecting materials for awhile and experimenting and here is the result. In honour of my Mum these little beauties are called GILLYFLOWERS (pronounced Jill-ee flowers after her name Gillian). They are handmade lace flower brooches which we have made using beautiful vintage and silk lace trims, birdcage netting, french ribbons and trims, and vintage baubles. They are lovely and can be used in so many ways! Find them in the Shop now and have a peek at these photos I took of them to get you inspired!

Lace and Lovely Things

"The voice of beauty speaks softly;
it creeps into only the most fully 
awakened souls."
          ~Friedrich Nietzsche

   It feels like summer has come! Today I was up early and outside. The sun was shining and the sky was a clear blue and everywhere is green and lovely. Suddenly I feel awake and alive again! I have been busy working on projects for the etsy store. Stay tuned in the next few weeks for exciting additions. Today I have added some beautiful linens and other special treasures. I hope you will visit and have a peek. Here is a little preview...
