june gloom



Came home the other day to these bad boys in the post.
The lovely Claire at Jazzpad held a giveaway a couple of weeks ago, and I won it.
Seriously, I haven't won anything since I was in year six. It was a collection of felt tips which have completely dried up by now. To win two giveaways in a matter of days?? Insane, I tells ya.
Anyway, it was (past tense, trust me, I can't help but rip packaging) wrapped, so I photographed it with some teapots, only to find out that Claire had popped in a teapot themed card!
Thank-you so much!!



A vintage St Michael bag which my purse actually fits in and a vintage brooch - not to mention the card which is now blu-tacked to my wall


Apologies for the last post. It was three in the morning, it'd been a mixed night out. I shouldn't be allowed to publish at that time.
I quote a friend: "
It serves as a reminder that you should feel?? You little 12 year old emo kid"
So to make up for it I'm going to share something nice with you. I've been listening to the Like so much recently that it can't be healthy.
Happy June (:


ps. feel free to follow me on twitter, my tweets are just protected because I have a complicated life (:
