“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

"picking daisies" swarovski bracelet giveaway


the other day a *surprise* arrived for Katie-moi. it's from my friend Laura, who we used to hang out with in our previous life when we first started homeschooling, back when Lauz was a teenager studying "School CertifiKATE Ironing" bwahahahaha (soz about the flashback-joke) and now she's a deliciously-round-mummy about to meet bubba #3!!!

so, this package was delivered to our door and we opened it and found -*Lauz's fave fresh coffee beans
*a frangipani candle "to light the way"
*a beautiful silk-covered journal with recycled paper pages
*REAL swarovski crystals in a stash
that Laura's creatively named *ocean spray*

never having handled a whole bunch of these expensive-ski beads before, i immediately thought - it's time to share the love... these are so delish we'll have to have a giveaway!!! so i found some *gorgeous* daisy-beads and some little blue and green seed beads and lookit:

a glittery daisy chain!!

Photobucket

actually i threaded two daisy chains: one for myself, and one for a randomly-picked winner!!!
just leave me a comment confessing the state of your lawns!!
here's ours:

(yep. full of my fave daisies.

i think we need to borrow a sheep.)

and i'll draw the *bracelet winner* on the first day of october.

***the picking daisies bracelet measures 7 inches (it fits perfickly on my 6-inch wrist with a little room to *twirl*) plus a 1-inch extension chain which has a wee daisy dangle! the bracelet is packed full of daisies and swarovski crystals and looks just like my spring-daisy-lawn lol***

he he well, it's just not spring if there's not enough daisies on the lawn for a great long chain! ...we made a sweet daisy crown for miss E just the other day. oh, and we bought a new lawn mower yesterday, so they'll be gone this weekend :-(

it's leaves on the lawn season here. I should really mow my lawn but it always seems too wet or it turns too hot and I worry I might get all sweaty if I did it, or I have drunk too much and fear I might cut off my toes, or the children are playing some complex game on it involving dens and garden canes so I hate to disturb them, or it looks like it might rain, or it is getting a bit late, or it is too early and I might wake the neigbours . . .

Gorgeous bracelet Kate. You are so talented.

Can I say that despite it being Fall, my lawn is green, green, green. No daisies (oh how I would love daisies on my lawn) and no weeds just lovely lush green lawn, too bad it is Fall...
