Give Away!!!

Here it is!

It is a keyring made from Majestic Olive and 24 karat gold! The Olive was grown in South Australia and sent to me by a friend. It has the most wonderful colours and grain. The wooden bit is about 2" long.

Just comment here, and on the 18th I'll pick a name at random. You don't even have to pay postage!

But - I'd like to ask you a favour. My dog Gem needs an operation on her leg and I have to raise money to pay for it.

Gem is very special to me because she is more then a pet and a friend, she is my Medical Assistance Dog. I can't leave home without her. She comes with me to the Doctors, the shops, resturants - anywhere that I go she comes with me. So you can imagine how precious she is to me!

I have a "Specials" category in my Etsy store, but in fact I'm happy to drop the price on everything if it means making a sale. I need to raise $900. I've borrowed it, she is having her operation on Monday, but I have to pay it back as soon as I can.

If you could please tell everyone you can about this give away so that they can read this as well? I'd really appreciate it, and so would Gem.

Thank you, and good luck!

First Fountain pen!

I made my first fountain pen this morning. It's myrtle burl in a Classic Elite Fountain Pen.

Raising money for Gem's operation - 4 hair sticks

4 hair sticks on etsy for only $25!

Each one was turned on the lathe by me, each one is different. The two longer ones are close enough to be worn as a set, if you do a style that needs two sticks.

I have no idea what the light timber is! I was given a load of fletches (the bit with the bark on it) and it was all mixed up. One of them is Almond, I think.

The dark one is easy, that's Black Heart Sassifras from Tasmania

The two long ones are 8" and 7" and the smaller ones are about 5".

See all my specials here!

Bombed the house!

Bombed the house for bugs today. Put the birds cage outside, put the cats in cages in the car and with Gem on my lap went for a long drive. The cats were pretty well behaved, except that Licorice kept up a constant "meow, meow" the whole time!

Home now, opened all the windows, cleaned out the animals water bowls etc. They are wandering around going "what's changed?" being very suspecious.
