Im a Broken Doll...

Hey Guys n Dolls!

Hope your all safe and well. I have been so busy i dont know where to start. Had better explain my picture hadnt i?? Its by the wonderful Gary Crozier for his broken dolls range. He is one of the most refreshing talented artists i have come by in a while. D'ya like her ? i think i want more. Monkey , the new kitten, was better behaved than me! She's obviously caught the posing bug from a young age!
Do you remember me pining for my little grey cat , Dexter, before christmas? This image is kinda about him and how he turned me into a cat lady and broke my heart.
We got a phonecall this weekend and thought we had found him , sadly it wasnt. But it was lovely to spend the morning drinking tea and eating biscuits with the little old lady who thought she had found him,Exchanging cat stories!

I have given up clutter for lent.
Dont look at me like a dog thats just been shown a card trick! I'll explain...

Im a little worried i have a hoarding problem or developing one at least. So over lent i will be sorting every bookcase, cupboard and trinket...having a mightily ruthless spring clean!
this may come in your favour fellow bloggers...etsy will be hit hard once i am done!

Thats all for now, Toodlepip!

Cold Days, Warm Hearts

Howdy Guys!

Well, I dont think im the only one that cannot wait for winter to be through now. Here I keep getting those spring blue skies, only to have my hopes dashed by a sharp cold wind as soon as i'm outside. I'm dying to get my toes into some peep toed shoes . Skipping around puddles, as graceful and whimsical as it is to begin with, is starting to get to me.
My last few posts have probably hinted at how fed up I am, but you have to let the little things raise your spirits- here has been a few of mine!

A new Kitten! Meet Monkey, the new member of our family!
My health has been bad since Dexter has gone (the chances have been narrowed down to being stolen, isn't that cruel how people can be?)
She's an absolute doll, giving out cuddles and kisses all the time.

When Angels Style Scrapbook had a give away I knew it'd cheer me up about Dexter to have my hands on these lovely gloves and a cute cute cute fascinator made by the lady herself.
Im sorry it took me so long to post about these lovely items, but they really did cheer me up and I am ever so grateful. Thank you.
I hope your all well and that Valentines day will warm you up a little in these grey cold days!

Winterrrrr Brrrr

Winter , in my opinion can be good to dress up in. This is for a few reasons.
Firstly i can get alot more wear out of my extensive hat collection. Secondly if you have vintage made of man made materials, it helps to keep you warm. Thirdly , i love a good christmas knit!
