I hear the rain.........lots of blah ahead

and it's lovely.
Everyone is in bed and I thought I would take this 'quiet time' to write a post.

The price of silver......well, those of you who read my blog probably already know about it. I almost feel as though my hobby will be over before it's barely begun....and I shudder to think about what the price will be a few months from now. I don't need any silver right now, but I feel pressured to buy some, before it gets seriously out of control. It's so depressing. I can only imagine how it feels for those who do silver work for a living.

I wanted to get a repousse set and a rolling mill, but I'm no longer sure that would be a wise investment. Working with copper is obviously an option, or brass as many are starting to do and I feel that if I were to work with those metals more, I would need a rolling mill and repousse set to keep things interesting. It's so hard to know what route to take. Right now I think one thing I can do is work with smaller stones and designs. That way I can continue to work in Silver....for the time being.

As I wrote in my previous post, we had the inspection and all went well. The owners were quite nice and that afternoon, the new lease was in the letterbox, which we weren't yet expecting. And the nice surprise was, they only increased the weekly rent by $5. It doesn't get much better than that. Oh and there is an airconditioning quote guy coming tomorrow morning. So hubs and I have mulled it over and decided that if they are going to put in the airconditioning, we will stay here for another year. I was originally all for moving, but as we only just did that 10 months ago, I don't really fancy doing it again now......I think I will just try and make this place more like a home and put my own stamp on it, as far as I can anyways seeing as we only rent it.

We finally got my little deco cabinet finished. I will put up a piccie next post and we are half way through our new dining chairs and almost done with the dining table. I cannot wait to get it all together and brighten this place up. I have been buying up little things here and there to decorate the house with. Today we went to Freedom (a big furniture store) and I impulse bought a new big clock and a lovely green vase kinda thing. And a couple of weeks ago I was at Target and I picked up a gorgeous big white picture frame, with places for about 6 photos, which I will most likely fill with pictures of Summer. And I have a few other things I've bought too. The revamped deco cabinets colour now means that we will need new cushions (or cushion covers) and a new rug in the lounge room. If I had my way I would get a new lounge suite. I hate the one we have...and I mean HATE lol.

On the jewellery front, I haven't really gotten much made. I have a few pieces I am working on, but since all this painting and moving business, I haven't had much space in my head for creating.

Well that's enough for now. It's nice n cool and I very much want a hot hot hot cup of tea now :) Thanks for reading :)
