All Hallow's Eve

Halloween's tomorrow and although we don't celebrate it in Greece, I'm gonna go ahead and indulge in the scariness of the day. No pumpkin carving, but horror movies and popcorn! Double feature for me, with these titles:

So yeah, pretty standard stuff, not even dressing up! What are your plans for the weekend? I wanna hear stories of your Halloween parties, please let me live vicariously through you!

ps. Thank you all for your get-well wishes, they actually worked! I'm feeling much better, in fact I'm leaving next week for a short trip, so get ready for more photo-heavy posts coming your way!

Fighting the cold

Sorry for the lack of posts, but I'm concentrating all my efforts into fighting the cold that's been circling me. I absolutely cannot function if I'm ill, I get all depressed and cranky so the battle has begun! My ammunition? Oranges, echinacea, vitamin c, ibuprofen, hot drinks, reading, baking and making jewellery (to take my mind off it), layers, layers, layers! My temperature is normal, but my nose is stuffy and my throat a bit rough. Eh, you win some, you lose some.
I hope I'll be better soon to leave the house and actually have something worthy to blog about, until then I'm going to need all your feel good vibes!

Works in progress

A couple of pictures of new jewellery, not yet finished. I really am in a creative mood lately! Bottlecap rings on the first one, bow brooches on the second. They combine some of my favourite things: London, fairy tales, comics, birds and Audrey! To be added to the shop the following days. Even more brooches coming soon!

Jewellery, books and broken vows

It's been quite a long time since I last posted here. Stupid life got in the way. I shouldn't complain though, September is my birthday month! Pictured above is one of my birthday gifts, a lovely handmade brooch. Isn't it adorable?

I also got the Hummingbird Bakery cookbook which I ADORE! It's filled with amazing recipes for cakes, pies, cupcakes, muffins and cookies and the most drool-worthy pictures! I seriously cannot wait to make them! You can see for yourself...

And finally, some other books. I swore I wouldn't buy any more books since I already have lots unread but I went to return a present in the bookstore and couldn't help myself. New vow: No more books until I've read at least 5 of the ones I have.

Right now I'm reading Neil Gaiman's Stardust which is such a charming story. I love the little blurb the writer wrote on the first page of the book.

Neil Gaiman is a messy-haired white male author trapped in the body of an identical white male author with perhaps even less-tidy hair. His books and comics have won many awards. He thanks you for your offer of a comb but does not believe it would do any good. Despite being English, he lives more in America than he does anywhere else in the world, and is currently somewhere in his mid-forties. He wrote this book especially for you.

New jewellery-in-progress photos coming soon!
