hello 2017!

Happy New Year everyone! 
It's a funny old time, these first few days of the year, sort of limbo between two years, in a way, as we are still on our holiday. I will be reopening our online shop in a couple of days and then all is back to normal again.
This year I have a few things I want to do which mostly involve getting outside more, which since my boy was born, has been a bit less that it should. I need to do lots for work too, new collection up my sleeve, and window display for the shop etc etc...

I received these vintage millinery leaves in the post last month, and I had the idea to string them together. I think I saw something on Pinterest which gave me the idea. The leaves are beautifully made and probably date from around the 1940/50s. Some are from Germany and some are from Japan.
I couldn't decide where to put it up, hence many photos of it around the house!





My mister gave me some jewellery for xmas this year, the gold chevron necklace is from our latest collection. The earrings were a scribbled sketch on a scrap of paper that I showed Nao as an idea a while ago, and low and behold, he had made them for me! I love the colour of the pearls he chose. I will road test them, and if they look good on and wear okay, we may introduce them online too.

So best wishes for all the lovely readers of Junkaholique, You don't know how much I love to read your comments, so much kindness out there in the world!
I will always keep up my blog as much as I can, but I have started to add to my instagram stories too, maybe showing more of what I'm currently working on or going on local walks with the kids, that sort of thing!
I love catching up with what you are all up to too, the best way to spend drinking my tea.

Bye for now, Artemis x
