Before I start talking about my day and my Folksy choices I want to say that my thoughts go out to all those effected by the July 7th bombings in London – it could have happened to anyone, including me as I traveled on a packed out tube at rush hour this morning.

On a lighter note, I got up this morning to a cool breeze and rain clouds overhead, which is quite apt for today’s under the weather card. Feeling a bit low still so the  gorgeous sea glass and silver necklace (above) from Blue Box Studio as part of the Folsky swap was a fantastic surprise waiting for me at home.  I do feel a little guilty that I only sent out 3 cards to my swap, organised by Amie Rose Designs, here’s hoping she isn’t too disheartened and sees the amount of work that’s gone into them! As I also got a little bag of sea glass I thought glass would be a perfect theme for my choices today:

Beadesk – Red and white handbag charm (these glass beads are gorgeous, and as the world cup’s on in the background a bit of red and white is good too – yes I do know we’re out already)

Lazy giraffe – Mojito earrings (Mmmm Mojito, and some gorgeous green glass too)

Buttons and beads gifts – Glass charms (now this is the type of glass I wouldn’t mind holding right now)

Diomo glass – White rose sun catcher (can’t have glass as a topic without featuring Diomo, and a white rose for a Yorkshire lass too)

Kirsty’s creations – Touch of the sea set (Sea, and glass – very tranquil)

Vintage dreams – Corset glitter bags (I can’t keep away from the vintage – it does have german glass glitter on it I promise)

Emma’s made me – All white (So many gorgeous glass beads on here, and I love a good colour theme – hmmm another potential topic?)

Have a good evening, time for me to go and make some new items to list over the next few days (wish me luck!)
