Twelve Things (for Lobster and Swan)

 I first mentioned Lobster and Swan in this post and today I have discovered that I am gracing the pages of her blog. I am beyond excited – I know, I know, hardly life-changing, but I have just loved her blog for so long. The post was in response to a request of hers for people to send in pictures of twelve of their possessions that, were they starting over, they would want to take with them. So I sent pictures (click to enlarge) of :
The most beautiful way to open a bottle, two little hairclips with stones missing that I love and wear anyway, a bulldog clip that is always in my work room holding something up, heart stones found on the beach by my loves, memories of friends and family.
I also cheated a bit, I think my quota was up, but I couldn’t resist including…
my beautiful fairy light strewn tailors dummy. She was bought for me as a surprise by my hubby over twenty years ago. She lights up a corner of my dining room and I love her, she’s like one of the family, but very well behaved, and never answers back…
Thanks for including me Jeska x

  6. Love your beautiful collections of such special items to you. Sometimes, i add some new stones to my jewelry with missing stones- or even use a drop of pearlized nailpolish in the empty places- always does just the trick to cover up those missing jewels.
