well, that should be snapshots of my past two weeks seeing as i had a break last week. it felt good to take a week off! i feel like i’ve probably forgotten to include lots of things, but these were (some of, obviously) the photos on my camera, so that’s what you’re getting!
i got some new glasses. i wanted a spare pair incase my others broke or got scratched. i really like them!
i made an illustration of kailey from mermaidens (if you’re reading, i’ll send it soon!) it was so fun doing her hair.
i’ve been waiting for ages to both be able to afford this beauty, and for it to be back in stock! this is bertha, from sophie of oh my clumsy heart. i’ve had my eye (and heart) on it for so long and i’m so happy she can now be around my neck!
i went in john lewis early last week to look for a nice birthday present for the boyfriend. whilst i was there i saw that they had loads of orla kiely stuff ..i wanted it all! but could only afford this beaker. i really wanted this storage jar too but couldn’t afford it!
i found this ..what i assume is a cat, in a charity shop for only 50p! how could i not. kind of reminds me of one of kaye blegvads’ ceramic cats.
and also this piece of coral. it looks much nicer in real life, i swear.
i forgot to mention but i won this awesome glittery card wallet from oh no rachio! ALL the sparkle.
