inertia creeps

I'm utterly  useless, I've been filled with inertia and fatigue. For the past week I've been falling asleep at my desk, before lunch! That's bad even for me. 
Anyway, it's not had too much of an effect, apart from me completely failing to post out my Jubilee Swap parcel, despite receiving one from the delightful Miss Magpie :
She sent me
 She made the little dog brooch! Clever thing! I love the postcards too!


very pretty headscarf and alice band! 

 Silver Jubilee ash tray/dish thingy!
 Lovely handmade bag - with great viking boat brooch, which I forgot to take a photo of.
Kimono style top, I love this, especially as I love the kimono shape at the moment

All in all a wonderful package of Jubilee greatness, I promise yours is in the post Gisella!!

I visited my village fete, it always turns up something great, though this year they seemed rather greedy and expensive...

 loads and loads of books!
Toni Raymond celery jar 50p
bunch of necklaces £1
 Portuguese cat mug face thing 50p
Vernon Ward "Enchanted Glade" £1 - I think Vix has this...
 This pretty little pot was 50p I think, it's perfect for a posy of Honeysuckle!
 I went along with Lisa - who does have a blogger but I'll be buggered if I can find it! We got cake and nipped over to the neighbouring village's fete (bit of inter village competition!)

There all I bought was this cute but creepy dolly, brand new for £3.99



 That's all for now, I'll be back with some art news, flowery photos and news of how I will be spending my Tuesdays for the foreseeable future!

Oh darling, I understand - I've been having a very complicated time too and all I want is get a decent sleep! I love all of your treasures - especially the little dog brooch, the fab everglades print (I'm desperate for a copy of my own!), all the necklaces and the gorgeous handmade bag. Hope you have a restful, delightful weekend. BIG HUGS! Sarah xxx

Boo, sorry to hear you are not well, falling asleep at your desk is a worry, I think a trip to your GP might be in order young lady!

I am thrilled you liked the parcel. I thoroughly enjoyed putting it together for you :-)
The top was one of the things I found when I raided the charity shops at jubilee with Himself in tow.

Oh my, that dolly is like one of Lucy Mabel Attwell characters' naughty cousins - she's definitely Up To Something;)

2 fetes AND a parcel of joy to unwrap, and one to wrap up and post.... I'd be falling asleep at my desk too with all that going on..... love the bambi painting; could almost see myself starting a collection if I found one of those. Must get a Dorothy Parker book one of these days; I've only ever seen her infamous one-liners. xx

Hello, this is Orchid (”Miyako” in real first name of Japanese)

I am feeling a bit tired at the moment and wishing more sleep, haha. Wow, GORGEOUS arn't they!!! I was so impressed with the Kimono style top. Looks like "aizome 藍染め”but not for sure...
Thanks for stopping by, really loved the visit♡♡♡ Lots of hugs from Japan, Miyako*

Super kisses xxxxx

Falling asleep at your desk definitely sounds like a trip to the Docs for you, love!
Your finds are brilliant, our pictures are the same! Loving the Portuguese cat's head, the celery holder (even if celery disgusts me) and those beads!
Miss Magpie did you proud, she sure knows how to give good parcel! That top and hair band are gorgeous and the dog brooch is amazing, too!
Have a fabulous weekend. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Oh honey- I do hope you are not coming down with 'where-the-heck-is-the-sun-it's-almost-July-itis'!!! Do take care. Plenty of vitamin C (Tablets are better than OJ!) and early nights are prescribed as a cure.
Love the stash of cutesy goodies. Your blogs always inspire me! Get better soon xXx

Marisa Noelle said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Oh my, hope you are feeling much better now - that is an awful feeling to have. Plenty of rest and vitamin c usually do the trick for me.

Such lovely finds per usual and what a great swap! I adore that bag to pieces! I would love to come with you on your charity shop rounds - if only I didn't live across the pond..ha. You always find the best stuff, I swear! Get well soon! xx Marsia

Wendy said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Ah pet I hope you feel more perky soon, if not as the other lovelies have said best get yourself to the Docs to have it checked out. What wonderful swappy goodies Miss Magpie has excelled herself! You did well at the fete I epecially love that creepy doll, its got the look of a Kewpie doll, my Mum had one and there is definitely something wonderfully sinister about them! Have a great weekend! xxxxx

Wow, your finds are magnificent, Clare. Love the celery jar, cat mug and the deer pic (even though I'm a bit off deers at the mo, as you know!). The kimono top will look lovely on you I'm sure.

Hope you,re feeling a little livelier. I've been feeling tired this week for no reason. Dunno maybe it's the weather... xxxxx

Longuette said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

same problem here. being size 16 and in love with vintage. I cannot find anything where I live. I've been in the US recently and thought that in NYC I would have been more lucky. But nothing. Especially for (wedding, sssshhhhh) dresses :-(

love your blog, going to follow you

Love, Ylenia from Longuette
