Ok, so this is a VanillaPixie Tradition!

This is my first Wishlist Wednesday post.

OK first one right here:

CHJ Sterling Lotus Ring with Garnet

CHJ Sterling Lotus Ring with Garnet

I have been a fan of Christina Hurley’s jewellery for ages and I adore this ring…I need to save up for this because it is a pricey piece but really would be SO worth it!!

I love waterlilies and I WILL own one of these rings one day!!!

Ok so the next item is….

SLATE SKY DRESS available in xs,s,m,l,xl

SLATE SKY DRESS available in xs,s,m,l,xl

This dress is a “LYPTIS” dress, isn’t it just amazing? There are a lot of people with this dress and I have not got one yet, i will have before winter, it looks soooooo comfy!

OK so this next piece I love is by UniqueDichroic…her pendants are gorgeous!

22k DRAGONFLY POND SCENE Freely Hand-Etched Dichroic Fused Glass Pendant includes Necklace

22k DRAGONFLY POND SCENE Freely Hand-Etched Dichroic Fused Glass Pendant includes Necklace

But to be honest I really can’t choose a fave…all of her pendants are just beautiful.

I bought one from her last year through Oztion (before i started shopping on etsy) and had it for about a week before my son dropped it on the tiles in our bathroom and it broke….GRRRRR I was mad I tell you but he cut his finger which made me feel a little bad for getting angry at him.

I am going to get another one eventually and I am hoping to get one for my mum for her birthday next month!

Ok well there could be so many more items i could include in my Wishlist Wednesday post.

But I will leave it at these three.


Nerys Purchon’s Bazaar

Nerys Purchon is an Australian seller on etsy, if you have never seen her etsy store Nerys Purchon’s Bazaar well then you are certainly missing out.

Nerys sells some wonderful items that would make fabulous gifts for that special someone or for yourself.

This is one of her creations, AUTUMN BAG

Nerys’ bags are not just simply bags to cart around all of your unmentionables, these bags are absalutely amazing.

This Autumn bag is a freeform bag and what does Nerys say about these…

“Freeform bags take up to a month to make so some patience is needed but at the end of that time you will own a bag that is totally unique.”

The freeform bags are not just bags, they are works of Art, please click on the picture to take a closer look, so much attention is applied, not just in the way they are made but how she adds her own special touch.

And now for a brighter, spring bag.

This one is my favourite!


This bag has been needle felted, It looks absalutely gorgeous, green is certainly a fave colour of mine, I just love the design and the shape of this fancy little creation.

This bag is knitted from 100% Jo Sharp Chartreuse pure wool and then felted. It is embellished with wild needle felted flowers. It will last for many, many years as the felting process makes a very strong, hardwearing fabric”

Nerys not only adds an organza bag filled with lavender and herbs into each bag but she also Scotch Guards her bags! Now if you go to buy a lounge suite they don’t even do that for you…wow!

Well i am sure you have all been amazed by these gorgeous bags but I am not finished because not only does Nerys create gorgeous bags but she is also an expert with herbs and essential oils with forty years experience:

“I have been working with essential oils for forty years—I’ve written several books about them and used these miraculous essences in countless ways. Their power and versatility never cease to amaze me and I’m sure that you will benefit from their use.”

Because Nerys has so much experience working with essential oils you can be sure that you will get as much information about these wonderful oils she has.

Pictured is a set of three oils, she also sells them individually.

If you would like to know more about essential oils then why not get yourself an E-Book?

” As far as possible, many of us prefer to take charge of our own health and the health of our family.
Good health is often a question of prevention of ill health by adopting a healthy lifestyle, but accidents happen, stress happens and then we succumb. ”

I urge you to take a look at Nerys Purchon’s Etsy store, there is something there sure to delight, for those who love art that is also functional, beautiful scents or would like to try using herbs in everyday life for themselves this is the store for you.
