Happy New Year!!!

It’s been far too long since my last post but on top of all of the usual Christmas and New Year celebrations the last month has also included both my boyfriend’s and my birthdays, and (watching my boyfriend) building an eight person dining table from scratch.

So I just thought I’d do a quick post to show you some lovely presents I received and also to share some very exciting news…!

I love these vintage Chinese scissors and plan to hang them as part of that ‘gallery wall’ we still haven’t gotten round to creating…

My boyfriend responded very well to my constant unsubtle hints and got me this beautiful glass cloche!

And also this lovely Brass and Glass picture frame. I still haven’t found the perfect thing to put inside but just popped an old table reservation in for the time being – didn’t he do well?!

Now that all the festivities are over January is normally my least favourite time of the year – I’m really not a fan of the cold and without all the pretty lighting that Christmas provides it’s just so daarrrk. This year, however, I’ve actually been willing the time to go faster as tomorrow….

I start a 4 week work experience placement at Elle Decoration!!!!!!

I genuinely can’t explain how excited (and nervous) I am to have been offered this as it’s just such a good opportunity.

Wish me luck and I’m sure it’ll give me lots of good blog material for the future!

Thanks for reading and I hope you’re having a great start to 2015!
