A mixed bag:

Hello blogging friends!! Today i bring you a great favourite of mine for gifts: Gifts for the girls. They also do presents for men and children too. I get the catalogue twice a year - it's always good for querky finds and great for stocking gifts. Heres some of the things i'm liking:

They even do Cath!

These are great for stocking gifts for men or women to keep the moths away!

I love the pretty tins that these salves come in.

This week i am dreaming of my perfect home. I love these rooms.

My ideal house would look just like the ones i used to draw as a child.

A few weeks ago i booked for my Mum and I to see Breakfast at Tiffanys in January. I can't wait!!
Last week i went to the Autumn/Winter fashion show at house of colour, we were treated to these on our chairs! i was chuffed as they are quite big, so i can use mine to make things.

I didn't mean to spend - i thought a tenner at the most. I first saw this gorgeous purse for a fiver and was very pleased with myself. Then during the fashion show i saw some other things!! They put them out once the show ended and i couldn't help myself - i lunged for them!!!!!

This pic does not do this gorgeous bag justice - it is sooo pretty and very vintage looking. I'm going to a ball in December, it will go perfect with the dress i plan to wear.

This is for my trendier clubby nights out!

I also got a fab glitzy long layered necklace for a fiver.
Smack my wrist i spent 40 quid! :)

On the weekend my hubby, brother in law and eldest son started to dig out the hole for our new pond. Very exciting - the pond we have at the moment is smack bang in the middle of our small garden and is a really ugly brick built thing.
I want and hopefully should soon have a small, wavy, full of plants, natural looking pond in the corner and a new patio that i can use - it will be so nice to put a pretty gazebo up next spring.
The boys found 3 field mice while digging - i was a kind girl and rescued them and set them free in our local fields. Surely that deserves a pat on the back and a reward of say........ 2 bags, a purse and a necklace for 40 quid!!!!! don't you think?? :)

2 posts today!

Oh my goodness!! what a fantastic film.
I wasn't to sure what to expect. I had no idea there was blogging in it!!
If your a blogger - esp to do with food/cookery you have to see it.
I loved the actresses, the story, the settings, the food - fantastic!!!!!

shopping mad!!!!

Ok, so your going to get a lot of this from me over the next few weeks. At this time of year we are always short of cash - we've had holidays, our cars need servicing, we are saving up for christmas etc - so i start to go shopping mad!!!! i want, i want, i want!!!! So instead of actually spending - i virtual window shop :)
I mentally prepare a wishlist of things i want for christmas and things i may payout for next year.
So today i have found these goodies to share with you:

First up John Lewis: I actually have this book, i love it - go get it!!

Urban outfitters is quickly becoming one of my favourite shops - i love the pretty dresses, slogan tees, fab jewelery and great homewear and gifts.

I have these 2 books too - again, go get!! they are fabulous!!!

And finally a yummy treat from Libertys.
