the perfect brooch

last week i won an amazing giveaway courtesy of katie from whatkatiefound and jess from cuppateaandcake (who’s fab etsy shop can be found HERE).

my little package arrived this morning & i am completely in love with this brooch!

it’s such a cute size and is beautifully made, it’s definitely the perfect brooch for me!
i now have an urge to go on a big knitting-related-jewellery hunt!

thank you again katie & jess :)

a few recent finds...

my favourite charity shop back home is starting to become an addiction. i literally cannot leave the shop without buying something, it’s a real life aladdin’s cave.

this weekend has seen the purchase of these lovely things.
the paisley print on the shirt is amaze, & at least i can say i was actually looking for the embroidery hoop; absolutely perfect timing! the bag was probably the cheekiest purchase, but in my defence i didn’t actually own a black bag until this one so i’m gonna say it’s justified.

the hoop will hopefully contain my keep calm cross stitch from the post below- if i ever get time to finish it that is!
