A gap in the clouds

Manchester is known for its cloudy skies and constant drizzle so when you get sunny days in March, it’s pretty much compulsory to take pictures. It was particularly nice to not have to carry a jacket around!

Current Obsessions #19

 

current obsessions 19This week I’ve mostly been thinking about forests, painting my walls grey, something interesting to do with the large but disused fireplace space and interesting ways to display my products in the show room.

I’m also trying to decide what to do with my hair for NYE tomorrow night and if I should keep “Current Obsessions” on a feature next year or replace it with something else. Please let me know if you have any suggestions!

Christmas 2012

This year I was working a ridiculous amount of hours, up to Christmas eve so it was nice to be able to relax for a couple of days, I don’t believe it’s all over already.

This Christmas was a nice family affair as usual but it was the first year in a long time that we stayed at home and I had the opportunity to take pictures. I decided to make a little diary of my day.

15471_10151348017370365_1715759354_nI wore black and nude because I really love my new flocked leggings and I knew my dress was going to be similar colours.

28748_10151349261510365_1026819791_nMy second favourite present was my amazing new waste paper bin. My old bin was red and plastic and gave me a headache every time I looked at it so I was desperate to get rid of it!

16806_10151349762980365_2010849429_nI also made a start on my new obsession, goldstone, opal and cracked quartz plugs.

Hopefully more nice and peaceful Christmases will follow in future years
