Mid-week...


Today was all about getting orders out....wrapping, tagging, form filling..post-office.....but boy do I love getting out my ribbon stash - it's always such a riot of colour! I used the pink today....

The heat has finally broken here and the most delicious cool weather has descended on us....torrential rain and all {lucky for the plants and trees!}!! I just love waking up and actually shivering...not feeling too hot and sticky to work...bliss. Roll on Winter!!! :)

I have been listening to Cat Power today...and have also been trying to track down some Neko Case albums {OH! How I love the images on her site main page!!}...but am proving unsuccessful. I think I will ask for some music for my birthday as I have not bought any new tunes for the longest time, and am starting to feel the strain..especially when we have the most wonderful independent music shop just round the corner...I was so happy to see last time I was in London that Fopp are opening up there too!!

Images that moved me on Flickr today are feet and boom ....*wow*

I hope everyones week is off to a flying start so far....I fear this one is racing as fast as the last!!

wow abigail i've been listening to cat power a lot recently too - 'the greatest' album is well, the greatest!

i was going to wait till i came through to visit you to buy something from you but the thought of it *arriving* all nicely packaged is making me want to order it from your etsy shop instead :)
