another selection of snippets from the last few days.
i made this scarf last year from an old jumper- definitely one of the most satisfying projects i've ever done! i also dug out the checked blazer from the depths of my wardrobe; i bought it from a charity shop in epsom years ago and i love it to bits.
yesterday j and i exchanged our christmas pressies- we have work today/tomorrow and wouldn't have been able to take them back to the isle of wight. he bought me these boots, a gorgeous knitted jumper and this diary that is so beautiful that i can't stop looking at it. it will have a blog post all of it's own to admire it's amazingness. i kid not.
he also gave me a subscription to not another bill. it's a genius idea- similar i suppose to all the beauty boxes flying around the blogosphere, but far more my cup of tea. they have collaborations with artists to create awesome pieces like this and also collect second hand treasures that are then sent to you every month. thank you j <3
the fairy light nails were a spur of the moment thing- i probably should have spent more time on them. although saying that, the little "bling" lights have already fallen off so i'll probably do some new ones tonight!
i cannot explain how much i'm looking forward to going home tomorrow. i've never wanted to be with my family more. i'm trying not to let myself dwell on any sadness, and just remember that life goes on, and i want to be happy as much as i can. thank you to everyone that left me a comment on my previous post, i really appreciate every word that you all said.
i'm looking forward to seeing all the christmassy blog posts over the next week- i hope you all have an amazing time :)
