goodies from sophie

To give me another little boost, on wednesday I recieved a very pretty package from the lovely Chez Sophie. It came at just the right time :) as the loss of holly has been giving me a fair amount of low moments this week. The package is actually from Sophie's lovely Vintage and Thrifted giveaway, which i was fortunate enough to come third place in!

Everthing was wrapped up so sweetly, it was just like christmas! And there were so many things, i struggled to get everything in one photo!

I recieved a very very pretty little card from sophie :) a lovely vintage tea plate, a little box of buttons and appliques, a gorgeous lace collar (which i need to find a pretty top to put it on!) some lengths of lace and ribbon, some vintage spools of thread, 3 vintage hankies, and some embroidery thread :D

It's such an inspiring gift, I can't wait to use everything in a bunch of projects! Thank you Sophie :D xxx

good times, bad times

Well this week has been a little bit of a roller coaster of emotions for me. On monday morning my poor dog holly was put to sleep. She seemed so healthy up until the day, but when taking her in to the vets, they found she had a heart murmer, shadows on the lung, and several other things :( it's been horrible since, and I'm going to miss her so much.
But on Tuesday, it was mine and Matt's 4th anniversary, and for a bit of a cheer up, he took me out to derby for the day, for a touch of retail therapy. We had a lovely time, and it helped to take my mind off things :) So now is the time to show off what we brought! (be warned, this post is about to get very picture heavy!)

This was the adorable sight I was greeted with when I opened my anniversary present in the morning. Granted it wasn't a suprise as I was with matt when he brought them :P They are called Bonnie and Clyde! And are the cutest oil and vinegar despensers ever!

I wanted them after spotting them in a lovely little shop in Nottingham we found a few weeks ago, where I brought an adorable mug from the same range!!

She's called Lulu, and look! She even has little feet!

Anyway, back on to things we brought on our little day trip :) the first thing was a new doormat! from paperchase!(I know! I don't take much to please :P)

Then we got a new kettle from lakeland! Ours had given up some time ago :P

And I brought the cutest bag I've ever seen too :D and just as an extra bonus, it's huge!!

It has Yes on one side and no on the other! how cute is that :D

It even came with a bag to put it in! I've never had a bag that had a bag to put it in :P

And the lining is just delicious.
That's all the photo's I have of things we brought, although Matt got a new game and a tattoo, and I picked up a few other little bits and bobs for myself :) I do actually have some other photo's to show off from the package I recieved from the lovely Chez Sophie! But I'm going to pop them in a seperate post later on ^_^ xxx
