Things I Got For Christmas Vol 3

This Lovely Pigeon necklace. I love both the minty formica and copper contrast, and Kirsty what made it. She’s a clever sausage, that one. And also SO bloody nice. She has an amazing house and always a kind word and a hello and a smile and a hug when I see her, all too infrequently, at shows. Look, she has a SWING in her house!

Onwards is the ceramics branch of Jen Collins artwork. Jen is lovely. I think I have only met her a couple of times, much like Kirsty, but when I have, I’ve always felt like I’ve known her for ages, she’s very friendly and smiley. I hope it’s not creepily stalkerish of me to say that Jen is the epitome of young artist to me – beautiful, thoughtful, generous. Do I sound a bit Yew Tree? I hope not. She’s just exceptionally talented and I feel the need to tell you that.

 

This tiny skulls ring from Datter Industries.

Is it a coincidence that I am drawn to items made by ladies who rock? I am not into that hardcore feminist shit, but there is maybe something in that. I bought myself a ring from Datter at Renegade last year to celebrate my good fortune and doubled my collection at Christmas scoring this beauty. Kay was very patient and made the piece I selected bigger to fit my big fat sausage fingers at Renegade. Lee was somehow prescient enough to get the biggest size of this one which fits perfectly. I don’t wear it enough – I only ever go to work, let’s face it, and as I am newly allergic to the soap there, it makes my hands itch and swell. I must endeavour to go more places so I can wear this.

I’m very lucky. My husband bought these things for me. Clever husband.

Fable & Lore

Did we all have a good Christmas? I had a lovely one, quiet at home with my family. I was given so many gifts it took me literally all day to open them – we were still opening gifts at 10pm. I was truly spoiled.

Actually, I was still opening gifts on the 27th, as one of my gifts from Lee was delayed in the post. It was worth the wait:

I’ve been on a bit of an arrow tip (ha!) recently and Lee picked this out of my etsy favourites. It’s not been off since I ripped open the envelope! I don’t usually go for gold tones but it’s pretty nice for a change. It’s made by Fable + Lore.

Back to work today though, bah.
