These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things #3

1. Reading… one of my all time favourite past times. I’ve just finished The House At Riverton & it was fantastic. I got so drawn in by the characters & it was one of those books that you really just can’t put down because you need to know what happens.. compulsive!

2. Mayonnaise. I am a total mayo junkie… on my chips, on salad, on jacket potatoes, even roast potatoes!

3. The tapestry work of Emily Peacock. The cushion above is a joint design with Rob Ryan, papercut artist extraordinaire & is available as a kit for you to make… I want! 

4. My ipod. Yes it’s hot pink…. Drummer Boy got me it for christmas & it’s an absolute lifesaver on long journeys!

5. Matroyshkas… I don’t know why. I did have quite a collection but I seem to have lost a few on the way.. payday soon so I might have to go & snoop round the shops! I just love the simplicity & elegance of their design I guess. I tried drawing a couple last night but easier said than done.. I’m going to doodle the Scandinavian flower designs that go with quite a bit over the next few days to practise & then have another go.

I actually got a pair of earrings made yesterday, green crystal chips (aventurine?) & gold-coloured wire, they look really nice. I need to get a new battery for my camera & then I’ll be able to share some pics with you! What are your favourite things??

Sunday Sweetness

So… for this weeks dose of Sunday Sweetness I bring you… 1) Gorgeous crocheted whale purse available here … 2) Beautiful mama & baby Matroyshkas… (unfortunately I have no idea where i got this pic from.. if these beauties are yours please let me know so I can give you credit!)… 3) vintage owl earring hangar discovered on etsy a while back… 4) raindrop magnet by me… 5) Incredibly cute cuckoo clock necklace.. I think this is an Elsie design… 6) Awesome painting by Coulson Macleod …                                                                                                                   It’s been a very very busy week this week… we’re short staffed at work so have been shattered! I also set up a DaWanda shop this week.. if you click on the DaWanda badge on the left of this blog it’ll take you there… it’s still a work-in-progress! Any free time I’ve had has been spent making & photographing so that I can put a few more items in.                                                                                                                                    Last night I had a night off from everything & went to the pub with Mr J & then came home & had an incredibly yummy curry… Chicken Passanda, Lemon rice & Peshwari naan… my favourite! I was tucked up in bed by 11pm xoxox
