my lovely things

Hi folks,
Haven't written for ages because I have been really busy and also, haven't really had much to say! 
I have had rather a stressful week though, work has been difficult and last week my husband crashed his car, with me in it.  Very scary and not something I would like to repeat any time soon.
Anyway to cheer myself up a bit, here is a photo of some of my favorite things.  The blanket is from Wales and is made from Welsh wool, it's really big and keeps me warm cuddled up on the sofa.  I bought the type writer off Ebay and love it soooo much, I love the colour and the feel of the keys when they type, and the bell that rings when I get to the end of a line.  The flask I bought from a gorgeous online shop called Clothears that sells lovely vintage style and gorgeous things.  I love it especially because it has an owl on the side, (birds are one of my symbols at the moment).  The pile of books is just a selection of my recipe books and a selfsufficiency book I got from a library book sale. I like to covers as well as what is inside. 


  1. that blanket is so lovely! maybe i'm partial to it because my ancestors are from wales.

  2. Thanks! My dad is Welsh and my mum and dad live in Wales so it holds a special place in my heart. It really is a beautiful place.

  3. What a lovely, cozy picture! I'm really enjoying your art and your blog! The header design is great!

  4. Thankyou so much, I only just noticed your comment, it's good to know there are people out there visiting my blog.


I love reading people's comments on what I have written, but I am not in the business of debating, this blog is my space, so if you can't say something nice, the please, don't say anything at all. If you don't like what I have written then please don't read it.
