Mini Mike

With all the snow we have been having and all the complaining talking I've done about this wonderful freezing snow, a Mr Mike, has requested a snowman. I thought it would be fitting to post this now since tomorrow I am leaving for the Philippines and will not have to deal with snow and frost bite for a while! LUCKY ME!
This is my mini Snowman, we shall call him Mini Mike. He is very fancy with his matching top hat and bow tie.
and then the wind came...
and blew his face off.
i laughed a lot.
which wasn't very nice of me.

PS. last chance today to send me your address if you want a postcard from Boracay :)

Happy Earthling

Today I wore my hand-felted ring made by the lovely HappyEarthling on Etsy.
HappyEarthling also makes lovely hand-felted brooches:
and beautiful felted and hand-stitched headbands...
 Here are the rings... (except mine is blue and white) :)
aaah... they are ALL lovely!!!

Check out the HappyEarthling Etsy Store 
it's lovely.

(ps. in a post that is only 48 words long, I used the word lovely 4 times. That means that 1/12 of this post is "lovely". which is ok, because it is.)

Fan art

I received this cute pic from Lola from the blog Dolls and Stuffs and thought i'd share :)
It's me!
look how cute i look with my big brown eyes and fancy pink dress! :)
Thanks Lola! :)

Postcards from Anywhere

I love mail.
I love postcards.
(I love postsecret)
I love postcards from cool places.

I am going to the Philippines on Sunday.
(OLLEH!!!! YAY!)
If you would like a postcard from indieBerries...
Email me your name and address before the end of this Saturday
and I will send you a postcard from Boracay ;)

click frenzy

I will be honest.

When i am creeping around on the internet on any blog/website/twitter/facebook (etc) and i come across this:

being the click-happy, internet slut connoisseur that I am, I immediately get like this:

and then clicking frenzy begins... now for those of you who have never been on the internet before, one link takes you to another link and then that link takes you to another link and another link and so so so on and on and on until you end up on a site that sells fabric-lined, deodorized kitty litter boxes. 
and you don't own a cat.
in fact, you don't even like cats.

There are plenty of occasions however where you end up with this:

big-bright-bad-ass chest full of gems and secret treasures and a few pearls of wisdom thrown in for good measure. So anyway the other day I was creeping around on Cape Town Girl Blog. (see that right there? that's a link) and i came across THIS LINK. i will tell you. it is very pretty....

Here's a special treat!

let the click frenzy begin.

Wrap it up

So Christmas is long over... but i thought i would share some of the gift-wrapping awesomeness that i received. just because it is all so beautiful...
postcards and pegs
handmade clay buttons, handcut paper snowflakes and yarn
a beautifully decorated box...
the bottom of the box: scraps and bits and bobs and papers and tapes... i love! i LOVE!
my "name!"... from a dictionary extract. how thoughtful :)
it's like pandora's box. but better.
and a gorgeous set of black fine-liners... 'one for almost every day of the week...'
oh i have LOVELY friends!
thank you *
