Christmas is coming, or is that Halloween....

Oh whatever it's party time!!! More Hallmark holidays - oh get me being all cynical....I do love Christmas - but it really does get earlier and earlier every year.....soon there will be no point taking down all the fairy lights....oh wait, I have those up all year anyway - it's already happened in my household.

Pretty things that are totally useless.  Now that could be a blog all in itself couldn't it - and maybe even cover most of the things I own or wish to own - these are very pretty - but I am not sure whta use they are!?!?!

Heart shaped leafness

This leaf blew into my office and sat by my desk all day.  I picked it up and put it in the bin and it reappeared at my feet.  I threw it away again and then found it on the floor a while later, I put it in the bin and left work for they day and came back in the morning - the bins were empty and the leaf was sat quietly on the floor.  I think it was really desperate to be the photo of the day!

What a lovely night!

I love this building it's like a really pretty autumnal tree with a little bit of concrete and brick behind it to hold it all together!

My respects to Elvis

Can you guess? Do you get it? Oh come on kids - it's the devil in disguise ;op

I found me a nice new hang out

I'm on a trial with a restaurant review website and whilst waiting for my next assignment D and myself tottered to a pub not too far from my work - not too shappy I think you'll agree.  I like pubs that looks like they could almost be your front room, just with way too many tables and chairs.

Cheesecake is not on the menu

There are eyes everywhere in my house, this is the top of my bookcase, pretty huh.  Further up is a poor lady fairy that it's just a head hanging from the jewellery tree, this was due to a tragic accident when I moved - things just naturally seem to turn into a scene from a Tim Burton movie yet to be made.

In the heart of the city......

I am playing around with different styles of film but there is something warm and inviting about this - something that reminds me of cold evenings but the warm glow of a candle.

It's Petticoat Lane init

Such a famous place back in the 60's/70's era - sadly  not quite the great market it used to be - but the memories are still there......not for me, for a time gone by.

Died and gone to heaven

One of the best desserts ever.  Coconut sorbet, cream, pineapple with a shot of malibu poured over it!!!

England is sometimes cold but the seasons sure are pretty!

At my boyfriends work he spied this leaf - it's so pretty!!!

I sense the work of fairies I do!

Not quite a perfect circle but a circle of fallen leaves none the less, and of course anything to do with circles in nature always makes me think of fairies - so maybe they've been out playing! What? It could happen!!!!

Suits you sir

I never knew there was quite such an array of Top Hats, I thought there was pretty much one kind - how wrong I was!

Curiouser and curiouser

I have come to the conclusion that there is something weird about me and my street - in an evening if a photo is taken of me - looks what happens!!! Again! I quite like it though.

Never too old......

For not just an Advent Calendar but a Hello Kitty one! I am still ill so still stuck at home.  D came home with goodies for me, one of them being this - big brownie points to him ☺

Still too ill for the outside world

Quite a great picture wouldn't you agree?  Then you realise it's all stitched and is actually a tapestry.  I was very tempted to buy this kit but I am not sure my stitching would do it justice! Amazing!

And whilst rushing around the craft fare - this little mouse popped his head up to say hello ☺

Sweets for my sweet

Oh yes the best cushions in town - a great vintage feel to this stall and custard creams, pink wafers, jammie dodgers.....big thumbs up!

Tuesday 12th October 2010

Ah such glorious hats!!!! These step the notch up somewhat for the plain old fascinator with ribbons and net! There were so many amazing ones - mostly all about food.....if you are lucky I'll share some more!

Monday 11 October 2010

Seeing as I am ill - I am going to share some of the photos from the craft fair I went to this week.

I said they were unicorn horns - a whole box of unicorn horns, someone so 'kindly' corrected me to say it was wool for spinning.  I'm sticking with the unicorn horns!

Nope I don't mean a foreign car for children - I mean these! Totally indulgent to spend £60 on a pair of shoes for a child that will fall over and scuff them, jump in a puddle and then outgrow them, and that will all be in the day you bought them BUT.....Vivienne Westwood shoes for children!!!! Nuff said!

All about me, well sort of, ok just a little!

Oh yes so that would be me trying to embark on a new adventure - I will keep you posted as to whether it works out or not so keep your fingers crossed!

It's a hard life

Just one of the lovely cabinets of goodies to be seen at work.  I really do work in a pretty place!

Thursday, 7 October 2010

Do as you are told!

How kind - even the roads in London tell you to keep your eyes open and really take in the world :o)

It's art darling!

Ok I fear it might not be a piece of modern art - I do fear it might just be rubbish - but oh well I feel a lot of modern art is rubbish so maybe this is me saying something in artistic form!!!

Wintery Morning Sun

Beautiful crisp cold mornings although the picture makes it look so warm! If only........

She sells seashells on the sea shore.

So there are gazillions of dresses at work (and that's just a small exaggeration) but this one dress keeps popping up in front of me and I love it - seahorse print - this should become a huge new trend I think.  The dress obviously likes me too and I really think it should be mine although I doubt my boss would ever agree.

Sunday morning, praise the dawning.......

Very early morning, very very rainy and it had been for hours, the water was hammering against the windows and running down the middle of the lane in little streams.  The rain was highlighted under the street lamps, I pondered about the poor spiders web and thought the lighting looked like a true London tabacco haze.

The spider is back!

And both show the amazing intricateness that goes into the building of a web!

Tuesdays with Morrie

So, I bought a book - second hand - something I've wanted to read for a little bit.  And inside was this lovely little message.  Something about finding these sorts of messages in books makes me feel sad as it was sent with such love and someone gave it away!
