I've been making a few new things lately,this little book for secrets and notes,which i added to my etsy shop along with some new cards. I did some batches of valentine's cards for the boutiques too . It is a grey day here,in contrast to yesterday's blue sky,strange how it can change in the blink of an eye. The postman brought some interesting things this morning.. the new cath kidston catalogue had an appropriate cover for the rainy day! but had some pretty things to browse and window shop.I've cut back on a few magazines lately as i wasnt finding them as good as they used to be,but i still like Grazia on a Tuesday with its mix of fashion and news stories and a bit of celebrity features. I also got a few things from Belle & Boo a new mirror mandy is doing and a postcard of a sweet little couple ...A birthday gift of a ring from Shelbi came at the weekend,she made it for me isnt it lovely and so kind of her to choose the butterfly especially. we have become really firm friends since meeting on Flickr and i'm just wishing, as i so often do with my friends, that we lived just around the corner instead of in different countries! her little ones are so adorable and enjoying what i sent for our swop,which makes my heart smile to think of them.
This image from the charlotte ronson new collection is very sunny and i really like the yellow cardigan, a nice warm day in spring this reminds me of.(well ok maybe summer when it comes to living here) Cassie sells Charlotte Ronson its one of the more casual ranges she carries at the boutique. She also has see by chloe and M by missoni,Sass and Bide and Catherine Malandrino which are more expensive. But you can often pick up good sale items from them. We havent been across for a while with both mam and i needed quieter days. Healing wise there's been alot going on, and different things to take into account so we havent been out and about. But those times will return and i progress in other ways it doesnt all have to be measured in terms of new things achieved. Someone thought i may be moving into my own flat or place in the near future, but no, thats some way off and not something i would choose to do.I'd prefer to live with someone.
I take pleasure in the little things and in enjoying the moment now that i can, i am not thinking long term, just taking things as they come, always i'm grateful for this new way of being and for the opportunity to build confidence and renewed trust in how i feel.
my little blog and my posts, they are for me as much as to share with others.thankyou for taking the time to browse today,for appreciating what i do and who i am. its so very nice to have a listening ear. i enjoy your words and pictures too,so much, it makes me feel connected and a part of a community.....with gentle Joy and love Kat x
