Eight days a week

If this week is anything to go by 2012 is going to be a very hectic and exciting year! In fact 7 days in a week is just not enough time - I need eight! 

The week got off to a great start when I received the super giveaway that I won over at Our Favourite Things

Don't you just love getting a parcel in the post? Oooh the anticipation!

Look what was inside!

So pretty!


Don't you just love this necklace? I've been wearing it all week!

Thank you Claire xx

You can find more gorgeous things like these to buy in Claire's Etsy shop.

It's been a brilliant sunny week here in Blighty. I work in London and it's felt so spring like and I have been tempted outside to walk at lunchtime. Days like these remind me why I love London. This great deco building is near the office.

But when Saturday comes around it's the country for me and today was, crisp, cold, with brilliant sunshine - perfect for hunting for treasures around Hertfordshire for my little shop at the Hertfordshire Craft Collective. My trip took me through the lovely market town of Hitchin, and Buntingford, an attractive village in the east of the county. Some great independent shops to browse.

But this trip was all about finding some lovely goodies for customers not me (I have to keep reminding myself of this) and the day produced some smashers that I have put in the shop back in Radlett this afternoon.

(I can hardly bear to part with this)

I've been working on the shop display too - it's gradually coming together!

Phew! An busy and brilliant week! How's your week been? Has the sun shone on you too?


  1. That red rose tea cup, oh my! I have been looking for a tea cup lately to buy and haven't found the perfect one. And that red dress... wouldn't that be gorgeous to wear on Valentine's Day? I'm off to check your Etsy shop now.
