hello. my name is kelly...i used to write a blog

that all seems a while ago now
...but today i return!

so a little catch up is in order :: here are a few things i've been up to over the past 2 weeks

spying an autumn rainbow

chopping kindling...oh the happiness such a basic job can bring!

enjoying my 1st gingerbread latte of the season
(no cream on top)

baking a marmalade cake...thinking of how long i can hold off on the mince pies (gigibird has got me in the mood!)

dipping my toe in the already crazily-busy shops to spy an outfit idea for 2 festive parties round the corner...this caught my eye in the latest blueprint...i couldn't carry off the orange but i love the style + the hair too (have you seen this gorgeous style by the way?)

thinking it's got to be handmade this year for my gifts...some made by me + so's i don't have to work every spare hour over the next few weeks i'll be perusing etsy + getting inspiration from the wonderful artists featured (2 each day) this week by shari over at the glass doorknob

burning clove + mandarin essential oils

hearing that a new kitten is coming to live with my parents : )

selling the new christmas stamps at work

wearing tights + new uggs which my star of a dad bought for me on his last trip to america...that man can do some mighty fine shopping! he also returned with other goodies (more of which to come later in the week)

hope november's been treating you all well. scary to think it'll be halfway through tomorrow

time for me to make some lists! xxx

dads that can do fine shopping are so cool, it´s also a great thing if they can get your exact size with no problems, isn´t it!? can´t wait to see those other goodies!

have a lovely second half of november!!!

Ahhh....simple pleasures....

Congrats on the new Uggs, what a lovely Dad you have, looking forward to seeing the rest of your gifts.

The Marmalade cake sounds scrummy, so I'm off to investigate the link.

No wonder you don't have time to blog!
Already spotted kitty on your Flickr:)
My marmalade cakes have always been very hit and miss....so I'm going to investigate yours:)

Good to see you back! I gave in to the first mince pie today, and I heartily recommend you do the same. Yum.

Hi nesty,

nice to have you back, did my new kitty pic influence your choice of cake to make this week? Uggs are so warm and snuggly!
