Today I am a very happy girl indeed. When the postie arrives at my door holding a parcel he is a most welcome visitor but especially when it is an unexpected delivery. I was ready to make an accusing call to Mr. Pink at work for ordering things without consulting me (although I am the one guilty if this!) when I read the message on the delivery note. It was an incredibly generous gift from a family member completely out of the blue.
One of these.....
I do enjoy photography and have been coveting a DSLR for some time but there has always been something more sensible (boring) to spend our money on. Now I can surround myself with photography books, magazines and websites while I try to figure out what ISOs, Apertures and White balances are! I am already making notes of the lenses and accessories I will be saving for!
Obviously I had to try it out so got snapping with some of the goodies I bought in this shop. Some pretty fabrics.
And some lovely ribbon.
During the couple of hours I get to myself whilst Miss. P is at pre-school I often enjoy a child free stroll around the charity shops. It is lovely to be able to rummage without trying to stop a two year old from rummaging too! Yesterday I found these trousers made from Ikea CK Rosali. Unfortunately they are a bit faded but I think will look ok if used for smaller projects and I was pleased anyway as I'm always hoping to find some Rosali.
