| Big. Bold.|

24 May

Summer is coming. Hot. Sweaty. Bright and Bold.

We thought we might bring some Big and Bold necklaces and brooches you could enjoy. And all you have to do is just be Beautiful you. ๐Ÿ™‚ They are all available now at Dulcetfig at Haji Lane.

It’s not easy being just you, isn’t it? But don’t give up. The path is long but you will get there, if you really want to.

For now, let go. Let go of hate, of regret, of self-pity. And go forth and have a whale of a time. Finding big, bold, beautiful you.

| Shiny Glowing Spring Raindrops |

23 Mar

It’s Spring!

2013-03-19 11.36.14Of course, here in Singapore it’s almost ever summer. But we can dream, we can imagine, we can pretend, can’t we? Even if it’s just for a brief moment, a glimmer of colour, a pastel raindrop. We can share the rest of the world’s joy, sorrow and in slightly more than a weeks’ time, the pain and glory of Jesus Christ.

Easter indicates a glorious spring, but it also points to something so much more important. Something so painful it’s rectification is so beautiful.

We are preparing to grief together with Christians worldwide. And then to dance and Rejoice with abandon.

Our thoughts are feelings are reflected in these new brooches ($29 and $33) at shupg. Where birds, owls, and raindrops are set free and look up into the clouds, into the skies, into Heaven.

Have a thoughtful Holy week and a joyful Easter weekend!

All that is faded, is not old.

I am reminded of the very first storybook I ever got. A book of my own. Before that it had always been borrowed books from the library, books that were sometimes missing a page or had scribbles all over them. Books which had to be read fast, fast, fast because the faster you read, the more you got to read (though poor mom had to lug huge little me, and huge bag of huge books to the library every Sunday. Not to mention the long long queues and the loud stamping sounds by my lovely friend the librarian).

But my first book, an Enid Blyton, made me fall in love with reading, a habit that stayed, and I’m glad it did.

Hurrah for the Circus. By the Childrenbookshop.com

The book is now long gone, given away. But I still long for the thick, woody-textured, yellowing pages of old Enid Blyton books. Those lovely illustrated covers, the black and white illustrations inside, and those simple words that stirred my imagination about trees with tops which reached into many magical lands, escapades of little children in groups of fives and sevens, and family stories of living in an old english town in a boarding school filled with night adventures and dormitory midnight snacks.

I particularly enjoyed the story about a little boy who was taken in by the circus, I think his name was Jimmy, who was one of the first dog (or animal) whisperers. This old, faded animal series of necklaces and brooches pays tribute to this amazing series.

These creatures are ready to greet you in Dulcetfig! They come as both necklaces and brooches so you can choose to wear them near your heart, or maybe your heart on your sleeve ๐Ÿ˜‰

This wee creatures come as both necklaces & brooches.

Aren't rabbits just the cutest things? Well, these are total characters on their own. A mime, a magician and a .... ghost of one?
