Birthday treasures

It seems to be birthday season at the moment. As soon as the 1st of march arrives, nearly every day is a special day for someone I know. In fact it's one of my friends birthdays today (happy birthday Lynsey!), and I'm meeting Louise for lunch, who's birthday was a couple of days ago. My birthday was just over a month ago now, and I've been meaning to share a few of my birthday gifts, finds and inspirations with you.

I had a wonderful day in London, on the day itself, and marched my poor boyfriend miles! We stumbled across an amazing shop called Cloth House, not far from Liberty. It was full of beautiful fabrics, trimmings and buttons. Old and new. I bought some of this jolly vintage ribbon (pictured above). I can't go to London without going to Liberty, so obviously I felt I should treat myself to a little something, and I got these pretty floral buttons. (Top) We also ventured over to Rob Ryan's shop, Ryantown, where I got this card (Top). The beautifully wrapped present is from my mum. (I didn't want to open it!) Lastly, the fabulous skipping girl necklace, by Stolen Thunder, was a present from my fantastic boyfriend Craig. I think she is just super.

Holiday snaps

I almost forgot...I know two posts in one day, unbelievable! It's the first time I've used my Holga 135BC and I'm quite pleased with the results. For those of you who don't know, this is a Lomography camera.

It's been a while...

It's been a while... I've been finishing off my second book for Serafina Press, The Treasure at North Berwick. Here is a sneaky peeks! Hopefully, all going to plan, this should be available to buy late May. I will keep you posted, and hopefully a little more up to date info on here. I also have a new facebook page, so you can follow me here too. Hopefully one page will be up to date!
