Where words fail, music speaks

Another post to inspire the music fans out there as well as those who have a music-loving bestie!  I was asked to make these bespoke hair barrettes by a music teacher, and I am LOVING how they turned out, even if I do say so myself.

The smaller, contemporary-looking barrettes feature a range of musical symbols, while the vintage-inspired barrettes highlight the all important treble and bass clefs.
Let me know below which style of barrettes you love best and what symbols or literary characters you would like to wear in your hair accessories!

Have yourself a very scented Christmas

Christmas lovers, it's that time of year when our nearest and dearest do their best to restrain our Christmas decorating enthusiasm to reasonable limits!
But never fear, I am here to enable you in your Christmas joie de vivre!!!

Although Mr Monkeys is adamant that we won't be pulling out the Christmas decor until December, I have been happily working on our brand new range of Christmas ornaments for Domum Vindemia.

Created from vintage doilies and table linens rescued from landfill, these Christmas tree-inspired ornaments not only look pretty, but will smell great too!
The tree's "trunk" is made from balsa wood which will deliciously hold your favourite scents just like a reed diffuser. 
All you have to do is add a few drops of your best essential oils to the trunk of the Christmas ornament and your home will be beautifully scented!

There will be three initial designs in this range, with more to be added as I can.  Let me know which design you love best!

Keep calm and find your lost keys

As the calm before the Christmas shopping storm starts here at my little biz, I'm showing off more bespoke creations to inspire you!  As with most of my bespoke orders, these keychains were a tonne of fun to design and make.

Yes, I really love taking my customers' ideas and turning them into special creations they'll love!!!

These keyrings were especially fun to make as the customer wanted different music-themed keychains as well as Star Wars and Alien/Predator themed ones too.

The best wines are the ones we drink with friends

Thanks to one of my gorgeous cousins, I have been having so much fun creating bespoke wine glass charms with some very fun themes!

When I was approached to create these wine charms, I was SO excited because they were different from the styles I usually create and included themes that I adore.

The first set is one that many bookworms will love, a set of Harry Potter-themed charms featuring some of the most well known symbols from JK Rowling's books and the film adaptations of them.

The remaining sets are all music-themed, which is appropriate given that my cousin and I, and most of the cousins in our family, are amateur or professional musicians.  Are you musicians and/or Harry Potter fans? And let me know, which sets do you love best?

I could never love anyone as I love my sisters

About a year ago I was excited to add Little Women-inspired lockets to Two Cheeky Monkeys, featuring a heartfelt quote from Jo March: I could never love anyone as I love my sisters.  These locket necklaces have been popular with Louisa May Alcott fans, and this past month I had the pleasure of creating matching bespoke necklaces for a customer.

A little different from our usual Little Women necklaces, these bespoke necklaces were created with beads that matched the two sisters' birthstones, further representing their bond with each other!  I thought this was the sweetest idea, and it's a great opportunity to let all my customers know that I am more than happy to customise our existing designs to create something unique for you.
So tell me, would you choose necklaces with your birthstones on them, or would you rather beads in your favourite colours?
