While you were sleeping

I made a rookie mistake today. I put Mr2 to bed, waited for silence to fall, and assumed he was asleep! By assumed I mean I listened at the door on more than one occasion, but I didn't pop my head in to check.

I was in and out of the house, making jewellery, cleaning jewellery, washing my hands, photgraphing jewellery... all the while silence from Mr2's room.

It was on one of my trips to wash my hands, coming from the ensuite in the master bedroom I noticed the strong scent of taboo perfume coming from Mr2's room across the hall. Pushing open the door this is what I found!

There was a gift pack of Taboo on the spare bed in his room, silly place for it of course, but it was waiting for Granny who will be down in Feb to help while I'm having bubba2. Having emptied the whole tube of body lotion over himself and the spare bed (silently!!!) all jewellery making activities had to stop and the cleanup had to begin.

On the upside, before discovering Mr2's mischief I did get one of the pieces I was working on completed.

The Lunar Pendant is now available in my Etsy store. Made from reticulated and fused sterling silver it is one of a kind, and very hard to photograph!

Mr2 is now bathed and in bed asleep - yes I am sure of it this time! Sounds like the washing machine has finished - I had better go hang out the doona cover.


  1. bwahahahaha I think this has happened to all of us. Lovely pendant.

  2. Haha Erika....silence is a deadly weapon!
    Oh what a cutie. hehehe

    That's a good one. Score is now.....

  3. LOL!!! I'll take this as a cautionary tale for when my baby is old enough to get into such mischief...

  4. Veri-Tea, I was thinking the same thing :)

  5. Haha, glad you can learn from my experience. Normally silence when they are awake = mischief, silence when they are 'asleep' is supposed be golden... From now on will just confirm that sleep status before I try to get anything done ;)

  6. I just love this! Many is the time I thought my kidlets were sleeping only to find them up to some mischief...funny how they can be so deathly silent when they are busy!

  7. So sweet, bet he smells nice for days

  8. Silence is usually a bad sign when they're toddlers! I always had reason to worry when I couldn't hear mine.
