Gorgeous Gardening

Golden Garden Hose
Spring is around the corner and I must admit that I have been neglecting our little garden – I spotted this gorgeous gold garden hose and now I am totally inspired to dash out out there and water stuff. Garden Glory make the prettiest hoses (with co-ordinated nozzles) – so elegant!

If gold is a bit too much bling for you, the hoses come in an assortment of gorgeous colour, check them out here

Isn’t it just the most glamorous garden accessory you have ever seen? Of course the antler inspired wall mount is just too cute too – these are going on my Christmas list – Santa, please take note!

Kim Buck is goldsmith and creator of these nuggets of shiny goodness. I love all of them, but if I was to pick one, I think I would go for the Swine and Pearls necklace. Which is your favourite?

Cupcake Creatures

A while back (infact way back in 2007) I blogged about cupcakes (again) and it was then that I spotted the cute animal birthday candle holder (see post). Recently, thanks to the wonders of Pinterest, I spotted another rendition of the cupcake candle holder. Only this time there was a tutorial on how to make your own.

This is a truly inspired little project, it constantly amazes me how many really crafty people are out there that come up with such ingenious ideas. Thanks to This Is Glamorous and also to The Sweetest Occassion for inspiring me.

Never wishing to miss out an oppurtunity to use my Dremel tool, I quickly dug out some plastic farm animals and got drilling. A couple of sprays of gold paint later and I had created my very own little Cupcake Creature. I had such fun making them that I made quite a few. If you would like to purchase a box (of 5) of Pretty Pretty Cupcake Creatures please drop me a line (jo(dot)reidy(at)gmail(dot)com) or leave a comment below. I would love to see them going to loving homes where they will can be proudly displayed on delicious treats.

If you are interested in how I made them, here is a little DIY lesson. It was so much fun making them, I hope you enjoy it too.

Thanks once again to This Is Glamorous and The Sweetest Occassion for the inspiration.
