Hey there!
Do you mind if I show you my latest Bakelite jewelry finds?

Short yellow necklace was a gift from my man and the
long necklace was a gift to myself, both from Prague.
Short cost 380 CZK (= £12 / $20)
Long cost 150 CZK (= £5 / $8)

Found the yellow, orange and green bangles in Prague.
Yellow & orange cost 280 CZK each (= £9 / $14.50 each)
Green cost 180 CZK (= £6 / $9.50)

These arrived through the letterbox while we were in Prague.
They were part of a lot (of 8) I bought on Etsy, thought they
would be Bakelite judging by the shape and they were!
The seller never mentioned anything about Bakelite so I really
took a chance and I'm glad I did!
They cost 90 US cent each (= 55 pence each)

Yum yum!

If you live in the US you might think these bits are expensive but
for me, living in the country where everything is overpriced, it's
absolute bargains.

I have a weakness for Eastern European/Russian things 
and when I found this Russian kiosk in Prague I just had
to get some sweets!
The woman in the kiosk didn’t speak a word of English 
but I still managed to get what I wanted and I thanked 
her properly.
I’m not going to eat any of it, it’s to keep, it’s to beautiful 
to unwrap.
This bunch will end up in one of my small shadow boxes.

While me and my man were in Prague we celebrated our
6 year anniversary.
It was lovely walking around in the beautiful city looking
at all the lights and old buildings even tho it was freezing.

I got this pretty moonglow demi parure.

I also got this Bakelite necklace.
Found it at Art Deco Galerie in Prague.
Pretty decent price too I might add, 380 CZK (£12/$20)

My man got 3 vintage ties (one was pink lurex) and a
Bakelite hair dryer from me.

Merry X-mas my gentile friends!

I'm back from an amazing week in Prague and trying
to catch up on some well needed rest.

Just wanted to show you one of the finds from Prague,
I got a bunch of these 1950's/1960's soft plastic snow
flakes, they are so darling and look amazing in the red

Lots of love.

I was happy to wake up this morning and discover
that it's been snowing during the night.
I'm less happy about being a year older today. :(
