1 - Inspiration.
I've been really into metallics recently, due in part to this amazing bag from Gift Shop Brooklyn. It's hand painted leather, graduating from copper with a purple undertone to a gorgeous gunmetal. She's a real sweetheart too and is happy to work on commission pieces. I really can't recommend her enough.
2 - Something I Made.
I made two loaves to take to my parents' for Christmas. The first was pistachio, the second was this chocolate and coffee loaf. I had worried that it might look a bit brown and plain, but I found this amazing gold glitter spray for baking. It definitely makes an otherwise boring looking loaf look really festive.
3 - Gifts.
As you may have already noticed, I'm a bit of a collectable junkie. The boy bought me this fantastic Dunny by 64 Colors as part of my Christmas present.
4 - Tradition.
As far as traditions go, this is still a fairly new one. A group of us at work put away £10 a month from February to December and then go out for a fantastic dinner before Christmas. It's great - we all get a top notch dinner and a brilliant night out, and it's effectively already been paid for.
5 - Motifs: Stars.
There is a shocking lack of star related patterns/prints in our flat, so I'm going to honour of my favourite novels instead.
