I choo choo choose you.

My goodness hasn't January whizzed by! Now it's almost February and that means Valentines or for the cynical ones among us the first greetings card made up holiday of the year...  
I can tell you it's been a few years since I've got a card from my other half but I love fun & unusual stationery, so for me it's just an excuse to find the cutest card I can! 
The last card I received was actually from a customer who comes into my shop, it featured two large melons on the front and the classic line "I saw these and thought of you!" Nice. It's quite a funny story as the card obviously wasn't signed but the handwriting had some very distinguishing features so it didn't take me long to work out who sent it! I never mentioned it to the chap in question, who happens to be a local magistrate, and he didn't ask me about it either! We did have a couple of rather awkward meetings after this but I know it was sent in good humour... still kinda weird tho! Does anybody else have any odd valentines stories?

So without further ado here are my top finds from some of my favourite stationery sites. 


And finally here is a bumper 24 pack with stickers and stamps if you are feeling very generous this year!

100 days.

So, today marks 100 days of not smoking. 

Finally my skin is starting to clear up, which I never thought would happen, it actually got worse after stopping and I couldn't use any products for almost a month without having a serious breakout. Despite eating everything in sight, I've not put more than 1-2 pounds on in weight. I have saved over £600 and am sleeping better than I have in a very long time. 

The downside? I want a cig now more than ever. grrr!

Happy Birthday Mr Jones

Anyone who knows me or is a regular reader of my blog will know my obsession with a certain chameleon of rock and today just happens to be his birthday. Of course I couldn't let it pass without posting a delicious pic.

New Years!

Firstly I would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year and thank you for all your visits and sweet comments this year, they are all appreciated sooo much! 
Here's hoping 2011 is filled with love, happiness, prosperity & beautiful shoes.

So I finished my last post with the promise that I would post a picture of the dress I was planning to wear on New Years. Well at 6.30pm last night I had an outfit disaster. I had delicately hand washed the dress a couple of days before and hung it to dry but it still needed to be ironed. Nightmare situation - I had the heat super low and used a clean cloth to protect the fabric but the damn steam iron dribbled onto the satin and left awful watermarks on the skirt and sleeves. I don't have any decent dry cleaners near me so I'm hoping I can sort it with another gentle wash and a dry iron! fingers crossed...

So this is what I ended up wearing: Bus Stop peach satin jacket/dress, Dollyrockers cream crocheted dress, D-Havz gold & nude wedges and vintage peach Boa.      

I don't usually go out for New Years but I had a really great night, even though I was totally sober (was driving), I still had a good old dance!
