Who Stole The Tarts? Vintage inspired Alice In Wonderland Necklace Featuring The White Rabbit

I just love this pendant. The Image of the white rabbit is one of my favourites from the novel. It's another addition to the Alice in wonderland series and features the white rabbit in the court room scene where they try to find out who stole the tarts, as well as a cute playing card and vibrant red rose and satin ribbon. I just love the way the white rabbit is pictured in a vintage colour tone on a worn away paper background, it looks perfect for a vintage theme!

I'm hoping to make a few cheaper pendants due to the C word... yes the Credit crunch, so look out for some cheaper buys over the next few weeks. I have some very unique and stylish new pendants that I can't wait to begin using on jewellery designs. So keep checking back for new designs.

Manchester Natural History Museum

Last weekend My Mum and Dad came to see us for the weekend. It had been my Mum's 50th Birthday so we decided to cook a special meal and have a few drinks at ours. During the day on Saturday we did some shopping then we thought we would check out The Manchester Museum. Mark and I had never been and as it's free to go, so we thought it would be a good day out!

Here are some of the things the museum has to offer. I particularly liked learning about the Egyptians and the Reptile Tanks!

Here is the massive Japanese crab that greets you as you enter the museum!

Of course I was drawn to these rather beautiful Butterflies!

A rather fierce looking Tiger, we couldn't believe how big this was!

We had a Fab weekend, it was so nice to see Mum and Dad and show them some Manchester sights! But we were ready for another weekend after and slept well on Sunday night!
