Here's the silver beehive



Where are the bees?

Hiding inside, where nobody sees.



Soon they come a-creeping, out of the hive.



One, two, three, four, five.


Well, three anyway. I'm making a new collection for Primavera.

Huge thanks for all the comments on my third blog birthday giveaway. I will be keeping the giveaway open until Saturday because of the blogger shenanigans.

Really wonderful Emma- : )

Floss said...

Oh, that's wonderful. I still adore my little bird BTW, and I've found a whole new way way of wearing it with strappy summer tops - it's hanging on a length of vintage lace at the moment.

Bee keeping - hmm. My brother in law is hoping to get a hive this summer. I don't know if we'll be following him...

I really love this beehive, Emma! I love the beehive image and often use it in embroidery and applique...but I don't have a little silver one like that and I would love one! Will email you.

Beautiful, a lovely English garden image. A chap on our allotments has bee hives and it's amazing to see inside when he lifts the top off.

That's simply stunning. You definitely deserve a celebratory drink - hopefully we'll manage one tomorrow?!

That's gorgeous. A couple of smaller ones would make the most amazing earrings.

Hi Emma, I'm excited as I ordered and received a whole kit on making silver clay things, just need to get the butane cartridge before I can get started. I can't wait to start! I hope you come visit my blog, lots of new photos. Hugs, Teresa :-)

Hi Emma. Are you gearing up for Open Studios? I'm hoping to come and see you on weekend 4. I'm busy printing new work and hope it dries in time. I really love your little silver chickens. Hope to see you soon.
