crafty photo scavenger hunt - december 12.

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.
