A little constellation magic..

Star light, star bright,
First star I see tonight,
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have this wish I wish tonight.

Early Draw

Good Morning and Happy Father's Day! 

With full intentions of sleeping in on this gorgeous Sunday morning, I've been up since 6am listening to the rest of the house snore and stir.  There's such loveliness in waking up early..watching the pale morning light filter though the curtains while enjoying a delicious cup of steaming hot tea.  And all this in the quiet and peacefulness that only a sleeping toddler can bring!  

So with all this uninterrupted time this morning, I thought I'd draw and announce the winner of this amethyst necklace early - as many of you may be busy with Father's Day gatherings today.
I've jotted all your lovely names down..and randomly selected two out of an antique coffee tin.
 The first name selected is the winner of the pictured necklace - the second name will receive a small         surprise giveaway in the mail.  

If you see your name in the images below, please contact me via personal message so I can get all your details.

I'd also like to thank everyone so very much for all your lovely comments! Without all of you, I wouldn't be able to do what I love..thank you, thank you, Thank You! xx

So will Jay Larkin and Kate McCormick please step forward..? 

                                                   Have a fantastic Father's Day everyone!!
xx BG

Prayer In Spring

Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers to-day;
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year.

Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,
Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night;
And make us happy in the happy bees,
The swarm dilating round the perfect trees.

And make us happy in the darting bird
That suddenly above the bees is heard,
The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill,
And off a blossom in mid air stands still.

For this is love and nothing else is love,
The which it is reserved for God above
To sanctify to what far ends He will,
But which it only needs that we fulfil.

June Giveaway!

Good Monday Morning! 

                                      Thought I'd start this week with a lovely little giveaway!

I recently found these amazing chunky amethysts..a beautiful cross section of the stone capped off with a cluster of pale lavender crystals right at the tip. I kept the handcrafted bail simple to showcase the beauty of the stone..what do you think? Perfect for summer??  

And the way to win one of these necklaces is really quite simple..comment and share! 
I'd love to hear from you! 

All your lovely names will be entered to win and one lucky name will be drawn on Sunday, June 15th (Father's Day!)

Looking forward to hearing from you!
