Random Bits & Pieces

My Cosmo Award arrived the other day (the first time it got sent out it was smashed, so has taken awhile to arrive), so thought I'd take a few pics to show off it's new home. Now proudly positioned next to some photos of my babies! Really love the illustration (by Ros Shiers), & willing to overlook the fact that my blog name is still wrong, because I still can't believe I actually won! Thank you so much you guys<3

In other news, I have been trying to curtail my excessive shopping habit, & have been failing miserabley! I now have a vintage lavender pleated skirt (oh so gorgeously granny chic!), plus a "nude" angora blend beaded cardigan, patent dolly shoes, & 5 metres of pastel pink tulle on the way to me. I have been sticking to only buying what I truly love thing though, I'm not just buying for the sake of it. I think :P

Anyway, I can't wait to make a pink tutu skirt with the tulle, (ala Ouma-wish I could afford one of those!), I've been desperate for one for a while now, so thought I'd make my own. So instead of £180, I've spent about £30 on materials, which is much better for my wallet. It's the time that goes into sewing that really costs the money though, & the skill, it certainly isn't all that easy to make something vaguely wearable. Luckily I have both the time & (I hope) the skill! :P
