And, most importantly of course, 10% of the sales of this version will also go to SOS children's villages.

A few weeks ago Katie ordered three necklaces from me - one for each of her children (what a lovely idea). I noticed at the bottom of her email that she was involved in a charity so I followed the link to the website. The night before I had watched a documentary about the orphaned children in Burma and after seeing the SOS website I decided I would like to try and do a little something to help.
I have decided to launch a cute little ID bracelet (available late summer) with 10% of the sales going to SOS. I am delighted to support SOS Children's Villages - the world’s largest orphan charity.
SOS Children's Villages provides a family home for life for children who have lost their parents through conflict, famine, disease and poverty. Over 70,000 orphaned or abandoned children are cared for by SOS mums in family homes in more than 470 unique children's villages, in 123 countries around the world. A quarter of a million at risk children in the community benefit from SOS Children's outreach support which includes education, vocational training, medical care and development programmes. SOS Children also provides emergency relief in situations of crisis and disaster, and continues to support families in earthquake and tsunami-affected countries.
If you would like to find out more about the charity or would like to sponsor a child please click on the link below.
Make a difference today, sponser a child here to give them a family for life.

The lovely pirate bunny is going to be mine, all mine. He is now sitting on the shelf in my bedroom.
I completely LOVE her.

Ah (sharp intake of breath)! Chilax, I'm not pregnant, much better news, I am in this summer's edition of I'm Pregnant magazine (out next week). I have never been much of a reader of baby magazines but this relatively new glossy looks great.
The orders are currently flying in thanks to the mention in Angels and Urchins so I am hoping this Chambers & Beau Molly necklace on the maternity fashion pages will have a similar effect. Yay, bring it on x

But then the post arrived and suddenly everything was ok again. The parcel with matching his and hers slippers inside was just what i needed. LLBean must have been looking down on me.

Not a camel's hoof in sight. Am no good at 'working it' for the camera but thought I would show that perhaps I haven't gone completely mad choosing to wear these. So comfy I am not sure I will ever take them off.
Happy, happy weekend xxx

1... waiting for the Mulberry bag to arrive.
2... in fact, way too much time, checking out my sister's new blog, sixtyone A. Check out her lovely boats, cards and handmade loveliness there, or here at Folksy. Wonders will never cease. She has finally 'gotten down with the kids' and gone techno crazy with folksy, a blog, even facebook god damn it!
3.... buying and trying on leggings. Can't work out whether they look quite cool or a bit 'mutton dressed as lamb'. Please note that I am not planning on wearing them with a crop top and stilettos!
4.... looking for our cat, Woody, who has disappeared. Been gone for over a week now so I don't really hold out much hope.
5.... lazing around hippo stylie (maybe the leggings are not such a good idea after all) in the lovely sunshine in the back garden/yard.
Btw, I do not let my daughter drink lager, she just happened upon a can (full, unopened) and it kept her amused for a while......

The summer edition plopped onto my doormat this morning. Very exciting that they have featured Chambers & Beau on their pregnancy news pages.
