a brand new year...

3 January 2011


its so scary how fast the years are ticking by isn't it? I always feel depressed at the beginning of a new year, i want to clean the house and make a drastic change to my appearance yet at the same time cant find the motivation. I have no idea why im like this as we had a really good 2010 so i should be celebrating! Anyhow, today i dyed my hair...its meant to be light brown, but it came out dark blonde! Oh well, its ok and its quite near to my natural hair colour actually!

Thought I'd show you some things i have acquired from the days I have been an absent blogger.

First off, Nao suprised me with this amazing diamond necklace! it is rose-cut and set in 18ct gold...im super lucky indeed. It is the same as this platinum one, both available to order at Rust {of course!}.

secondly, i found this amazing shirt! Is it Turkish? or Hungarian? answers on a postcard please! check out the sleeves, i look like i should have a small herd of mountain goats at my side!

I also got this little patchwork bag for xmas, in fact I spotted it in a junk shop and told Nao that it would do as my pressie {unbeknownst to me that he was making a hugemungous diamond necklace aswell!} and completely forgot about it, so it was a lovely surprise. its so beautifully made it makes my brain boggle.

my new spotted shorts are from Primarni naturally!

I got loads of other lovely pressies too, think i need to do another post for that!
other stuff I have been upto this holiday was some more wax carving...like this tiny tea cup which is about 1cm wide...

I am also the proud owner of some vintage paints! and such beautiful butterfly cards from Sarah of Small Island Store sent all the way from Hong Kong! so very kind and i LOVE the canvas wallet these cards come in, such a good idea. Thank you Sarah!

exercise books from Nao...

a candle in the shape of some string! Genius! from Nao too...

i found this 1930s ostrich feather collar on Fleabay.

and another xmas pressie to myself, I discovered that Diptyque do a solid version of my fave whiff...fig!

Plimsoll seems quite happy with her xmas pressie from me, a bowl for her Sheba.
