My jewellery now for sale online.

This parenting thing is working a treat. Whilst child sleeps.... Jute makes stuff!

Jewellery is my latest thing and have made some awesome pieces which i almost want to keep and wear myself! The theme carries on from Ramikins Renos and uses old found building materials and objects to create wearable pendants.

The range is called Found Jewelry and is now for sale on Etsy: Wohoo, hopefully they get snapped up as i have millions of ideas awaiting!

And in other geeky news.. Paige's bassinet project is now featured on a site i frequent for more eyes to see! Heres the link:

Plummms! PLUMS for africa!

Our plum tree pulls through with the goods after 2 years of harsh pruning and false hopes!

Note: please dont laugh at my rather large garden ornament in the photo above. It has acted as a great ladder for picking plums. And just In case Gareth asks.. i have most certainly have not been climbing on the roof of his lovely old car...

So many fricken plums i don't know what to do! I've exhausted my sugar stash making shitloads of jam. The yummiest jam EVAH might i add. Have tried giving lots away... but they just keep coming.

Now i am battling with fruit flies and the fricken birds... just lucky i have my BB gun nearby!

My espalier apple is not far away either.. and not to mention the strawberry bed lego has adopted, a passionfruit plant thats double in size, fejoas just warming up and a machine of a lemon tree about to deliver. Just call me Jute the Fruit.
