Spain, owls and a new display cabinet!

So I forgot to mention last post that I was taking some time out to go on holiday. I'm lucky enough that my Aunt and Uncle live in Spain so I took a week to go and enjoy the delights of sun, wine, delicious food and of course bird watching!
They live near Torrevieja in the Alicante region. This area is famous for it's salt lakes and therefore boasts a wild flamingo colony. Which even though they are resident I didn't see 1 although I was pleased with seeing a Montagu's Harrier.
The first photo is at dusk on the morning we went out to walk la Mata nature reserve.

Below is my Aunt and I about to enjoy some traditional flamenco dance and good food.
Finally we spent a morning quad biking around this stunning lake. Really enjoyed it.

So back from Spain and my creativity has only got going today. I'm really pleased with the costume jewellery I've made but my camera died so the pics for that will have to wait. On returning from Spain we went to the New Forest to handle and fly owls for the day. They are such amazing creatures and so beautiful. We are really lucky.

Although as I mentioned before I've had little time to create I spent a day prepping my fantastic ebay purchase ready for it's new home. So Tuesday my man with a van came and my jewellery and creations are now on display at Moods Studio in Havant, Hampshire. I have to say I was really proud of how it looks. What do you think?

Have a lovely weekend! E :) x
