Orange Fever

Orange seems to be the colour calling me at the moment...I love it.

This week I recived a parcel in the mail with my gorg orange resin bangle...ordered from Mylene (I can never get the squiggly line over your 'y') Hillam of Mill Lane Studio. It is so beautiful...I love the transperancy of the lovely colour.

So I had to make a button ring to go with it...of course!

Here are both:

Memories to last a lifetime.

As those who visit know...I've been to Esperance, Western Australia for 2 weeks. My most favourite place in the whole wide world. The weather was perfect...only one rainy day!!
The most memorable part of the holiday was meeting a little orphaned sealion at our favourite fishing spot, Bandy Creek
The Fisheries Dept. believe he is very young and has lost his mum...somehow, pehaps she was attacked by a shark.
He is sooooooooooooo beautiful...when he cries for his Mum...it breaks my heart...even now! :(

He wasnt the least shy and even posed for photos. Of course we fed him...wouldn't you. Some of the fishermen even got so close they patted him...not wise I suppose...but very cool!!We visited everyday...to check he was still there and doing ok.
On one of our last nights, we went fishing and found him sitting among a family while they fished..couldnt believe it. We set up...I caught a fish...and guess who came running up to eat said fish...LOL!!! He can move pretty fast when he wants too!!!
He then spent the rest of the evening with us, while we fished. Needless to say...no fish got taken home that night...LOL.
He expected each and every one and even supervised the fishing, as you can see from the photos.

This would have to have been one of the most memorable experiences of my life...have a little wild creature be so trusting to let us into his life. I hope he will be ok and perhaps still be at Bandy Creek when we go back next year.
Driving out of town to come I home, I confess to being teary with a huge lump in my throat as I thought about him...I am pretty much like that now (yes I am a sook) hehe!
Thanks for letting me share!

Lollies for your Fingers

My newest button rings remind me of boiled lollies (and first creations to show for 2009)!!! Orange, lemon, lime and grape!!!
I do believe I am slightly addicted to making these, even though they are quite fiddly.
I have so many buttons...i can keep making forever...hehe!!!
Perhaps i should order some more seedies...you can never have too many :)
