Aren't these absolutely gorgeous? And what's even better, one of them could be yours! That is, if you enter the giveaway over at 'Pretty Little Things' where the extremely talented Diana is making all sorts of things and writing about them, too. The blog is in Slovenian, I'm afraid, but the photos speak for themselves. To enter the giveaway, just leave her a comment! It's international :)
Goodness me, it's been a fortnight, and we haven't even been away on holiday yet! I had a translating job to finish, and even though I spent a lot of time at my computer, I didn't really find any extra time for the blogging. I did follow your updates, my dear blogging friends, and left the odd comment or two, just to let you know I was still there!
Anyway, before I actually embark on my proper blogging holiday, let me share a few of my favourite things - most of them have already been seen on the blog but not really from up close. So here you go:
- my beautiful giraffe pin -
from one of those lovely craft shops in the capital
- colourful beads from the local supermarket
(would you believe it)
- and another lot :)
- my absolutely gorgeous Joules tweed satchel...
love love love it!
- my equally gorgeous Cath Kidston clutch
- and last but not least, my favourite summer earrings
I finally finished the Ken Follettbooks (I wish it were a trilogy, absolutely fascinating reading!) and now I'm re-reading an old book I got as a present from some very dear friends. They used to live in the same village as the author of the book, Ms Dinah Lampitt, and I used to spend many a summer with them. The book in question was signed by the dame herself and I saw her perform several times as she was part of the village acting group.
So, basically, reading this book again is one great walk down the memory lane for me. Ah, the times of youth and folly :)
Right, in my previous post I promised to tell you about my secret crochet project. Here's the thing: one of our best friends celebrated his 40th birthday last weekend. A group of friends had decided to present him with a new bike. Since there were two avid hookers (!) in the group, we decided to yarnbomb the vehicle!
I made the seat cover...
... and the handlebar covers,...
...each with a bunting flag.
The cross bar bunting was made by my good friend M.
