Happy New Year!

A very happy new year to all of my faithful readers!  This is just a very quick announcement to let you know that I'm taking a short break from blogging and the stores to spend quality time with my family.


While I'm enjoying my R&R, the virtual doors of Two Cheeky Monkeys and Domum Vindemia are remaining open.  All orders made during this time will be processed after January 13th.


And to further ring in the new year, I'm offering 30% off all purchases over $200 made in either store.  And yes, that includes all sale items too!  So head to the stores and stock up for your 2018 gift giving (and spoil yourself too).

Helping those in need

As 2017 draws to a close, I wanted to take the opportunity to thank all of my supporters for all your encouragement this year.  And for everyone who has supported Two Cheeky Monkeys and Domum Vindemia through making purchases, an extra special thanks goes to you for helping me to support some worthy charitable causes too!


So far this year, our beautiful customers have helped us to support Samaritan's Purse, World Vision and SIM Australia in the work they do to fight poverty and exploitation in Asia and Africa.  It means a lot to me to know that Two Cheeky Monkeys and Domum Vindemia can help to fight for those less fortunate, even if it is in little ways.  So THANK YOU for your support in this important work!

Have yourself a very gourmet Christmas

As you should all know by now, I absolutely love Christmas time, especially the fact that I get a few days off to celebrate the birth of my saviour Jesus Christ!  At this time of year, I also especially love to spoil my friends and loved ones with delicious meals and desserts.  So today I'm sharing four decadent-looking recipes which are perfect for spoiling your family and friends this Christmas season.  Enjoy!

Obstinate Janeites

As I sit here wrapping up another "obstinate girl" necklace ready to head to its new forever home, I wanted to take the opportunity to thank all the Janeites out there for your overwhelming support of Two Cheeky Monkeys' Austen-inspired creations!

Here are just some of the obstinate necklaces that have headed to new homes in the past few weeks, with customers evenly divided between those who chose plain lockets and those who chose to personalise with a Czech glass bead in their favourite colour.  Let me know in the comments which option you would choose!

Boho chic cuff bangles

I have been madly re-stocking the stores and preparing for the upcoming Etsy Made Local market on November 25th, and today I wanted to show off a few brand spanking new items!  I've been making floral and literary cuff bangles for some time now, and there are finally a few new designs in-store.

These two offerings have a similar design to each other but differ in the colour schemes I've chosen and the text used for the focal point.  The orange bracelet celebrates Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe, with the orange symbolising Anne's hair and Gilbert's "carrots" insult.

The multi-coloured bracelet was an adventure in colour use for me and features darling vintage and contemporary cabochons in bright summery colours.  The central cabochon includes the inspirational "she believed she could, so she did" quote; perfect for celebrating a young lady's graduation or other achievement!  Which bangle do you prefer?
