HE' S A SUPER-SHOPPER

as promised i am back with some show + telling today...courtesy of my lovely dad (aka my shopping-mule!) who went on his last captain's trip to america before he moves on to pastures new + some loop the looping over here near us lot which means we get to see more of him : )

so without further ado here's my stash...

this goodies set from martha stewart...so's i can wrap up my baking this christmas + play at running a pattiserie with my boxes/twine/glassine! i'll be having fun too with other bits from the ms crafts line which we can't get over here like a nice bird punch + lovely ribbons.

then came fabric heavenlies from purl...
you won't be suprised to know that these were a pure joy to unwrap!

i've got a couple of projects in mind for these + now i know how easy it is to order online i'm sure i'll be back for a fix before too long as luckily they do post internationally!



i bought small pieces from a mix of designers including yuwa...heather bailey...joel dewberry + koka

the frosty weather here has meant that my uggs haven't left my feet since they came out of the box! i'm off now to do some weekend chilling by the fire with a pile of december magazines...bliss indeed.

p.s. i must send out a special thanks to cabin crew lady dawn who actually brought the huge box of ms craftiness on the next flight back to england when it hadn't arrived in time before my dad left the hotel...you're a sweetie! x
