s.w.a.l.k

in the last few weeks i've received some amazing little gifts in the post from some lovely friends/bloggers (floggers? bliends?) and thought i'd do a little spotlight style post on them. these girls are all amazing, as are their blogs/shops and if you don't know them already then i suggest you get clicking :) 


i knew as soon as i'd found pixel a collar that i wanted erin to make her name tag. i absolutely love everything in the "sawyer & scout" shop and particularly love the handmade quality of the stamped discs. i emailed erin to ask if she could make one up for pixel and i'm so glad she said yes- it's so cute! the collar is still a little too big for pixel at the moment but i'll post a photo of her wearing it when it fits. 



next is this amazing hat that i won in a giveaway on sarah's blog. sarah created the pattern inspired by the beanie ellie goulding wore in her "starry-eyed" video and i think it's perfect. i admire sarah so much for being able to just whip up a pattern like that, it takes me forever to work things out! thank you sarah :)
(pixel refused to leave my lap when i asked j to take these photos so you get a bonus one of her trying to attack my face!)

and last, but definitely not least is this adorable necklace that sam sent to me. if you're not all completely bored of hearing about pixel, i'm sure you have noticed the resemblance here- my own personalised pixel neckace! 
i absolutely love this idea, and i'm sure that all the pet owners out there will agree. i can't wait to wear it and it also doubles up as a brooch pin which is awesome. 
sam's online shop "polka dot dreams" is filled with the cutest pieces- who doesn't love animal themed jewllery :)

so there we have it- three amazing gifts, from three lovely ladies! they are all super talented and remind me why i love the blogging/creative community so much <3

  5. I love the hat-fringe combination, and just your fringe in general! What do you ask for when you have it cut?
