The Most Exciting Thing Ever

So our wonderful chicken Muriel had eight little baby chics yesterday! Very exciting! Pictures to follow shortly. But that isn't the most exciting news! Four didn't hatch so we brought them inside and left them on the windowsill while we sorted the others out. I completely forgot about disposing them, but I am so so glad I didn't because about an hour ago I heard a noise coming from one of the eggs! One of the chicks is still alive! YAAAAY! I tried to put the eggs back under the chicken but she rejected them and is just focused on looking after the chicks she has. So, I now have the chirping egg (along with the other three just in case there's something in them) in a cardboard box with sawdust in it and a light positioned over it to try and keep them warm. Fingers crossed for the next 24 hours! I'll keep you posted on any developments! If anyone has any chicken hatching related advice please tell me! This is the first time I've ever had to do this! xx

New Shops and Giveaways

Ruby Rouge jewellery is now available to buy in Great British Pounds at! "About time" I hear you cry! Yes it has been long overdue. So far there are only nine items listed on the site but I'll be building up the stock on there over the next few weeks. If you are from the UK and would like to purchase either something you've seen at craft fairs or on my shops at through the new site feel free to contact me and I'll set up a listing. If you live in Cheshire, my jewellery is available for purchase at House Interiors & Gifts which is in Cotton Shop Yard just off King Street in Knutsford. It's not available on their website, but take a look anyway, they have some really pretty things:

I've also opened up a new supply shop on etsy: so if you're in the market for jewellery findings head there for a bargain. Don't forget about the original though. Have just listed some new items this week including this new Rain Rain Go Away Umbrella Necklace.

Hope you managed to enter my May giveaway. If you didn't don't worry. I'm going to start doing giveaways on the first of every month on my blog so make sure you look in between the 1st and 15th of June for your chance to win your very own piece of Ruby Rouge Jewellery.
