  1. Today I am going to tell  you Why I Love Blogging #throwbackThursday

    1. First of all I can update and share with you any new jewellery that I have made or I am planning to make and any sales or discounts that are coming up.

    2. My blog helps me to connect with you all and hopefully will reach a larger audience.

    3.  My blog allows me to be part of the blogging community.  There are lots of bloggers out there blogging about what they are interested in and there are lots of fantastic blogs out there for us to read.

    4.  I joined Bloglovin a while ago and my blog posts get published on there too. There are so many different subjects that bloggers are writing about you are bound to find something that interests you.  You can sign up with an email address and get any blog that you are interested in sent to your inbox when a new blog has been written.   You can also follow any person or blog on Bloglovin.

    5. I enjoy writing and telling you all what I have been doing.  I do not always write about my jewellery as I also tell you about my favourite authors, favourite tv programmes and films and anything else that I think you might find interesting to read.

    6I am aiming to do a blog post every week but sometimes it will be nearer two weeks depending on what I am going to write about plus time just disappears so quickly.

    This is a wirewrapped jasper pendant brown leather necklace which I made recently and is in my online shop.

  2. #throwbackThursday

    It is now just over a week until Easter and every family has their own Easter Family Traditions.

    Good Friday and Easter Monday are public holidays for some people who are working but it does depend on where you work to get these holidays.

    Chocolate eggs are the first thing that I associate with Easter and Cadburys chocolate eggs in particular as I love Cadburys chocolate. I started buying Easter eggs a couple of weeks ago, but I have had to buy some more as we have already eaten some of them. They were not very big Easter Eggs and Easter Eggs do come in different sizes as you know.

    Everybody has different Easter Family Traditions.  In our house, we have home made salmon fish cakes on Good Friday.  This is a recipe that was handed down to me by my Mum.  I can never get them to taste as good as the ones my Mum used to make though. 

    Every Easter I make pace eggs for us to dunch.  I boil them with onion skins, and this makes the egg shells go a deep red colour.  I boil a dozen eggs and cool them down, then put them in a bowl.  (You can also paint faces on the eggs if you wish).  Then on Easter Sunday, we each pick one of these eggs and take turns with each other dunching our eggs.  One person holds their egg so one end is at the front, which the other person bangs with their egg.  The purpose is to crack the other person's egg.  When one side has been dunched, the eggs are turned to their other side and the person who was dunched first, dunches the other person's egg.  The winning egg is the one which has not cracked.  The winning egg gets put at the top of the bowl for the winner to use at the next dunching of eggs which could be later on the same day or the next day.  The cracked eggs are then eaten, either on their own or made into sandwiches. 

    I have been dunching eggs on Easter Sunday for more years than I care to remember.  I started doing this when I was a small child and have kept the tradition going with my own family.

    For our Easter Sunday dinner we normally have some kind of a roasted meat such as chicken or beef. We used to always have a turkey for Easter as well as Christmas but have not done this for some years now.

    Easter traditions will vary from country to country.  Have you got any Easter Family Tradition's that you would like to share?  If you do then please leave a comment below.

    Any piece of my jewellery will make a wonderful Easter present for your loved one. For a lovely piece of jewellery please visit my website at https://lisuweddingandhandmadejewellery.co.uk
