Jewelry by Rocquelle

I love my new necklace!! The front of it is cute with the pearl and chain combination. It's dressy enough to wear to work, but would also be cute with a cocktail dress. I also love the back, with the animal print ribbon. Just a touch of naughty and nice! Great combination... ;-).

This necklace was created by a Jewelry designer by the name of Rocquelle. Here is more about Rocquelle, her contact information and where you can see more about her and her jewelry line.

I am a 24 year old fashionista, stylist, closet auditor, crafty (my made up word, lol) and philanthropist from Houston, TX. When I am not working in the fashion arena, you will find me in the schools as an Community Outreach Associate for Girl Scouts, or spending time with my family and my awesome Babe! After experimenting with creating jewelry and accessories from a variety of sources to rave reviews, I decided to turn my hobby into a business venture, Eclectically Feminine Jewelry and Accessories! I love all things feminine (I am very much a girly-girl) and lovely,especially pearls, which is evident in my eclectic yet feminine designs.

Rocquelle also creates custom pieces. So if you have something in mind, email her the details of what you want. You can read more about her at Eclectically Feminine or you can email her at

New Bits at Black & Spiro

We've finally received our delivery of Megan Park cushions in at Black & Spiro along with some of our other lovely cushions {top image}. I thought I would take a couple of photos of some other bits which we just received in last week. The little Antique brass mirror is one of my favourite things in the shop at the moment and the colourful ginger jar lamp bases are divine!!

Ashgrove House

Images above and below you may be able to spot the floor in the sun room to the left which we had painted in a green and white stripe. We will be doing some beautiful white cane pieces upholstered in lovely bright fabrics in this area in the New Year.

Here are some photos of a job I finished off this morning for a lovely, lovely client at Ashgrove. The brief was to create an area which was fresh, bright, colourful and family friendly. This is what I created.

Happy Thanksgiving!

How much is that doggie in the window?

I brought Ned into work today in an attempt to cheer myself up. His favourite spot in the entire store was sitting in the front window next to our beautiful new curtains watching the traffic and passers-by. I couldn't resist snapping this photo above.

Country Road Christmas Catalogue

It was lovely to receive the Country Road Christmas catalogue in the mail last night. It's filled with lots of great gift ideas. I absolutely loved the cover which I have posted above.
