Something tasty....

a bit of soup...

I am a bit late to the party as I  have just returned from hols and the posting and receiving happened whilst I was away, then there was the catch up on return...washing, playing, ironing, playing, tidying, playing...

I was partnered with Kristina of  Wild roses and blackberries and looking through her blog was overwhelmed at all the different styles she likes to tackle.  To be honest, I wasn't sure what I should gather together for her, but on closer inspection realised that what I create with is not what Kristina creates with {often}.  So, it was a case of teasing out of her some favourite colours/textures, adding a focal and clasp {of course} and some "extras".....

This is what I sent Kristina, hoping {fingers firmly crossed} that she would love the colours as much as I do.

I also found out that Kristina has a "thing" for dragons and, as I live in Wales I couldn't resist adding a little something extra to her package.  Afterall, the Welsh dragon is our National symbol {besides the Daffodil}. I took the beads on holiday with me and went "hunting" for a dragon...

I found two lovely dragons, one to look after her hot drink and one to protect her when she goes out into the big wide world, I also added a stick of Rock {No.8 which can ONLY be found in Pwllheli}....sadly, I forgot to take a picture of them as I was too engrossed in taking pictures of the soup! 

I know Kristina will share them with you tho!

I have recieved my soup from Kristina but I need to get some decent photos of the gorgeous-ness before I can share, unfortunately the weather has been gloomy for the last few days....but stay tuned it's getting brighter by the weekend!
