(It’s no secret books are always the way to my heart)
I finally have The Carrie Diaries, one I’ve been lusting after all year, and I also got Jacqueline Wilson’s latest The Longest Whale Song. Because I am forever enchanted by her storytelling.
I also recieved a beautiful children’s classic in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
A favourite of mine, Kirstie’s Homemade Home book to go alongside the series, filled with every craft a girl could want for.
From fiction to cookery, I have three new cookbooks, which is always going to make me a happy girl, lets be honest.
I am probably the last girly to jump on the Hummingbird bandwagon, I also was given a Sweet Treats book of delights.
My little infatuation with Sophie Dahl has been filled with her novel and cookbook...
Gifts from my Mum always have a tale behind them...
The thing I love about my Mum is that she knows my style exactly. She knows what I like and what I don’t. And the above is a perfect example of it.
It’s a lovely hand/arm warmer, complete with inside pockets for money, phone etc. This screams out for use at 2011 car boots and antique fairs.
She also sneakily managed to get me this Royal Doulton Christmas plate, from 1977. I say sneakily because I was with her the day we first saw it in the Charity Shop window. I was amazed by its pristine condition and thrilled with its original packaging but I had no money on me. My Mum went back the very next, and got it for me.
The Mr got me one of these...a Harajuku perfume from the Wicked Style range, and I said I wasn’t going to collect these ones! She is so cute...
