I've just finished watching this. I've been on a bit of a royal family kick, immersing myself in the marvellous The Tudors and Marie Antoinette was a lovely diversion. Norma Shearer and Tyrone Power starred in this lavish production - I was entranced by the costumes, and engaged by the sympathetic portrayal of "that Austrian woman".

Another lovely day in the Barossa! The boys and I started off at Woodside, where I attended a photo shoot for Itchypod at Thomas for Roses, then had a lovely mocha at the Bakery.
Then we were off to Maggie Beer's for lunch. This peacock just could not show off enough! He hopped down from the wall where we was sunning himself after the cameras stopped clicking.
Both Leon and Jacob enjoyed a pheasant terrine, while William and I had picnic baskets of cheese and fresh bread.
After a quick photo opportunity by the lake, we started back home. Every time I leave the Barossa to come home to Adelaide, I feel I'm leaving my true home. I am so looking forward to a time where our family is settled there.

Inspired by my love of stained glass elements in the Gothic architectural style, The Catherine Window necklace features enchanting rich colours. The central gemstone is a jaw dropping AAA oro verde (or green gold lemon quartz) briolette, which has been surrounded by carved rubelite garnet leaves, faceted full drops of lapis lazuli, and teensy "mystic" quartz rondelles. Joined to a generous length of chain using the deepest navy Akoya saltwater pearls, the design is finished with a hand forged "s" clasp and a length of extension chain - with a lapis briolette as a dangle. The entire design was heavily oxidised and lightly rubbed back.
You can see more details of the Catherine Window necklace here.

Thanks to those who entered, I am approaching another milestone, and planning to hold another celebratory giveaway soon.
