Eye Spy...

Eye Spy.... A Bit of Bling!
This weeks Eye Spy theme is from Hoppo Bumpo. It worried me at first as I don't own any proper grown up blingy jewellery, or anything blingy at all in fact, so I decided to go down the Christmas tree route - turns out I wasn't the only one! I made these tree bling wotsits probably 10 years ago, using air-drying clay and the beads leftover from my wedding dress. Quite appropriate to have a bit of wedding dress on the tree, as we got married on Christmas day 11 years ago! ( In Vegas, which explains Elvis being here!)

And as they were made to entertain a then 3 year old, here are the ones Bigski made, entitled 'Explosion in a glitter factory'.......

and I also Eye Spy.....a Burst of Colour
which was last weeks theme from Flossy-P, only I was rather busy sorting out the loft, 'tis a truly exciting life I lead...
Tasteful bright pink reindeer lives on the mantlepiece throughout December, accompanied by an equally tasteful purple reindeer, who is sadly antlerless after a tragic freak accident (any reindeer reading this DON'T try diving off said mantlepiece head first...it'll end in tears and a date with some ineffective glue!)
You too can join in the fun of Eye Spy over at Bug and Pop!

Oh yeah - how cool to get married in Vegas!! Me and the hubby are going to go and re-new our vows there one day and get Elvis in a gold lame suit to do the deed!

I so love that pink reindeer, even antlerless I am sure he is quite divine.
I love the explosion of glitter, 3-year olds do seem to love the glitter!
