Vivienne Westwood key pendant

So so happy!! I got the Vivienne Westwood key pendant from Mike for Valentine's Day. It has been on my wishlist for a few months now and sold out everywhere, this one is slightly different as it has a different chain (which is why I think the other one sold out as they didn't restock it as they re-designed it). Unfortunately that also meant the cost was a bit higher but alas! I love it so much.

Happy 6th Birthday Pumpkin!

Recently it was my little pomeranians Birthday. She turned 6 years old, so we celebrated by getting her a slice of dog cake and put a candle on top. We've only had her for a few months, but it seems like much longer as she's settled in extremely well. I can't wait till summer when I bring her out on our trips to the beach. She is sleeping next to me on the sofa as I type :)

How does your garden grow...?

I do have a garden, but I don't venture into it during the winter months. This little potted plant will do me for now until spring comes around and the flowers start to bloom.
The plant was 50p from a boot sale a few weeks ago, it fits perfectly in this Cath Kidston egg cup..yes, an egg cup. I bought it from the same boot sale a few stalls down. It came with a blue one as well and for the set it was £2. It's so cute and lives happily on the window ledge.

I'm back! Battersea boot fair and charity shops

Hi all!
I'm back! It has been a busy few months, I had no time to think about blogging and my brain seemed frazzled. Hopefully I can get back into the swing of things.
Last week me and Julia went back to visit Battersea boot sale. It wasn't as big as it usually is but that was expected due to the recent weather. We still came away with some lovely things, and obviously as usual I come away with regret because I didn't buy a pretty coat I saw. It always happens.
Here are a few things that I did come away with.

I originally wasn't too keen on the colour of this dress, I never wear blue but I just couldn't resist buying it as it has a squirrel print on it and is a lovely shape. It was a lot more than what I would usually pay (£5), but I knew that Battersea boot sale prices were higher than normal ones. The labels inside is cut out so I am not sure where it is originally from..although the fact she cut the labels out makes me think it's primark lol.

At the bottom of this box of random bits and bobs I found this doll thing with a pear outfit on. It's very random and creepy but I love it, plus it was only 50p.

I did purchase some other items but they aren't very interesting, plus most the other bits were for Mike (I'm such a lovely wife hehe). After the boot sale, me and Julia drove past some charity shops so we decided to pop in. There were 3 charity shops a few doors apart from each other and I managed to buy something from each one. These Vivienne Westwood badges were at the bottom of a box of cosmetics, they were 25p each! I'll never wear them but it's always exciting to find stuff like this :)

The first two figurines weren't bought from a charity shop but were bought recently from a friend on Instagram who has her own shop in Cornwall (hoping to make a visit to her shop in the summer). Check out her shop on Facebook Fine & Dandy. I had specifically been after ornaments of these characters for a while so it was meant to be when I saw she had two for sale. Strangely enough, the larger ornament was from one of the charity shops. It was such a strange coincidence considering I had only just received the smaller ones in the post recently. Now they live happily on the fireplace in our living room :)

The last item I bought from one of the charity shops was a Slipknot t-shirt, ha! I used to be quite the fan of them when I was a teenager. It was only 50p so I thought, why not? ;-)
