A mixture and HW {part 2}...n

'Hyacinth Watch' {henceforth known as HW!} is well under way people! One plant is already beginning to bud...and so, I could not resist doing a little sketch this morning as my part 2 offering...so excited you are all going to 'keep watch' along with me. Let's all grab hold of Spring and hang on together!! ;))) So looking forward to this project developing...

In other news - I have been benching lots...making, making...cutting shapes and arranging them as I go is one of my little pleasures in life. Order in the chaos, I guess...

As a little reminder - only a few days left on my IN STOCK SALE, which will close at the end of February...so if you want to snap up a bargain {25% off!!} to pep up your Spring wardrobe...now is your chance!

I have also added a little 'about me' page to the shop site...to help people put a face to the name who might not read this blog. 


Some new shoes arrived with me this morning. I have been tramping about in UTTERLY unsuitable little suede ballet flats all winter long and so, I have been getting nagged relentlessly by a variety of sources to get something more suitable and sturdy! These are my concession to practical...good, egh? {*giggle*}...but, in their defence, they do have a proper sole and might keep the water out for at least 20 minutes! ;)

...and they are the perfect kind of ugly/pretty I love. Digging the colour combo possibilities too...!! {The bag was one I picked up when in the States at Target {Hayden Harnett collection} - it holds all my junk, so it's perfect!}...though the leather lover in me always slightly pines when it has to go without, but the canvas here is so nice, I made a personal exception!

Right, back to the bench with me!
xo all.

I love the shoes, your purse and the benching. I'm having a little green-eyed moment contemplating your day as I sit in an ugly cubicle!

the white shoes are so so so so cool- i want a pair. practical shoes? whats that?! they have to be cool, nice,the right colour and shape...the list is very long, and practical is at the bottom of it. i got a pair of wellies- for practical. lol

You are very evil. I'm desperately trying not to spend money and now I REALLY want that bag - and it's such a good price too...

Love your sketch, love the whole idea of hyacinth watch, but please stop showing us your cute things...
