Bare with me while I rant. I'm a bit sad today.
I need to quit or at least do less days in the shop.
I had enough! People are really rude and also my
relationship is really going through a bumpy ride
at the moment, today we had two arguments and
my man is very good at saying things he really do
regret afterwards.
We rarely argue but the last couple of weeks has
been pretty bad.
Today I had to leave the shop and I went to my
friend Mark's hair salon to have a good cry and a
Now this is a true friend, he washed my hair and
gave me a proper scalp massage.
I feel pissy and tired all the time and that my life
really isn't worth living.
I'm bored, not even a good scout on the antique
market on Friday's cheer me up.
I never thought I'd say this but I'm getting sick of
vintage. Well, maybe not but there's nothing
that brings me joy right now.
I feel I need to do less days and start going to the
gym again to get the endorphins flowing.

What would you do?

I'm in a pretty good mood, maybe because today's been
nice and sunny, about 15°C.
The Crocus and Snowdrops are in full bloom and we had
today off so we went for a walk around the lake and fed
the birds. The gulls went totally berserk!

Thought it was about time I posted my latest creations!

I can't really take any credit for making these earrings.
They were just pendants I found cheap on eBay and all
I did was attaching jump rings and ear hooks.

I've made some more 1940's style cherry necklaces.
The leaves are different from the ones I've made last
year. I personally think they now look much better!
These are all available in my Etsy shop.

Revamped the inside of this box the other day.
I found it at the antique market for 20 pence.
I got too much jewellery for my own good and
I’m always in need of nice storage.
It used to be a bridge box, I didn’t throw away
the stuff that was inside, I donated them to the
vintage charity shop I’m working in.

So what did I do?
I removed the sheet in the lid and replaced it
with some girly wrapping paper, I glued it on
to a piece of stiff paper, it was a bit see through
and then glued it to the lid.
I also glued white pieces of felt onto stiff paper
and placed them in the compartments. I didn’t
glue them on the bottom, I might want another
color on the felt, haven’t decided yet...

Hi there!
I'm so sorry for the lack of posts, I'm not well, I don't
have the time and I'm low on inspiration.
Saying that, I actually did some crafting in bed today,
I will try and post pictures early next week.
I also have TONS of bargains to brag about. :)

Hope you all had a nice Valentines day.
I got the most beautiful Coro Pegasus confetti set from
my man.
He got a lurex dinner jacket, a red art deco inspired tie
and a heart shaped mouse for his work computer from
little ol' me.

Click on the image for a much better view.

I also got this as a gift to both of us.
We'd been looking for about 4 years for a nice red bed
set but without any luck, until now. £13.50 on eBay. :)

Oh yeah, this is not our bed room.
