Dark Monday Morning...

Hey Bloggers...

Well my brain woke me up today at 5am, and I couldn't get back to sleep, its very difficult to relax when you know you've got to get off to work at 7.30!

I ended up laying awake thinking how odd Facebook is really..I very nearly erased myself from it a few days ago, for one, I'm not photogenic at all....

Then I got to thinking that its kind of like a time machine really, old friends, from long ago, who you have lost touch with years ago, suddenly appearing....

So hello if you have found me, and stumble across this micro bit of blogland...

But must dash bloggers...busy busy week, lots of work on xx

I will hopefully poop...I'm mean pop back soon...:0)

PS..couldnt resist leaving that typo :0)

Bargins and Baubles...

Is it me, or is Christmas this year getting here quicker?
Seriously, I'm sure years ago, Halloween was ages away from Christmas...but this year it seems too close?

Do you know what I mean?
And ooo with that comes the yearly Christmas Anxiety...yep its just starting creeping in..

The pressure for a christmas to be like this.....

When its more like this!...( good ole Bridget!)

Stuffed and a bit tipsy, sat on the sofa..

I think its my own fault really, looking at all the posh Christmas mags..and looking about on websites....arghhhhhhhhhhhh...

So heres a challenge, say No to feeling Christmas Pressure...

If you want to sit in your jimjams, thats fine by me...and let your home get messy too, yay!
and lets bring on un-coordinated Christmas Dec's too...

After all its just one day isn't it?

Any way...enough of that...we've still got a few weeks left!

Now heres onto the first bargain of the week..

Mulberry ish Leather Alexa bag..£30 squid Ebay...

Vintage Hidesign Satchel...for Mr M..£5.00 (Charity Shop)

And (not a bargain) but a wonderful pressi from Mr original sculpture, by Joanne very own doggy..

He will keep and eye on Miss Sue, when we are at workxx

I keep expecting him to move...

Happy unstressy Saturday Bloggers

Love Sam xx

Ooo I should be working but I've drifted back on the WWW, but I just had to share with you a programme that I had forgotten about..which is very Christmassy and spooky...

The Children of Green Knowe..

I haven't seen this since 1986, it was shown on a Wednesday afternoon on BBC1 here in the UK, after John Cravens newsround.

I discovered it as You Tube is a brilliant sort of TV channel, and I have it on as I work.

I have watched all 4 episodes, and it was really lovely, and made me well up in I thought I would share it with you, especially if like me you like a bit of nostalgia, from the 80's, like The Box of Delights...

Oh and if you have any tips about recreating the smell of Christmas trees...that would be great...

Question Dear Bloggers...?

Well after reading my very posh Homes and Antiques Christmas Magazine, the yearly christmas tree question popped into my head...

Real Tree vs Fake Tree?

Now I LOVE real Chrismas Trees but I have never really been very good at looking after them, and they give me a rash!

But you just can't beat the smell of them can you, so I was wondering if anyone out there in Blogland can recommend a really good fake smelly thing that I can use?

So if you have time to message me that would be great!

Bye for now!

love Samx

PS I was thinking of emailing the publishers of Homes and Antiques with a new idea for a about Everyday Homes at Christmas?...I'd love to see that :0)

Happy Saturday Bloggers..

Heres today's illustration effort...I'm busy busy at the moment, as well as working on my first picture book, I'm trying to think up new ideas its a bit of an Owly theme at the mo!

I have bought my first Christmas Magazine..I couldn't resist the free Christmas CD.. Love em!

Normally I avoid the 'higher' end mags like Homes and Antiques, as they can make me feel a tad 'lower class' look at our HUGE mansion, you too can decorate just like us! Ummm well I can't..your Kitchen is the same size as my entire ground floor...

But, the pictures are pretty...and I can't resist pretty pictures of Christmas Trees...

And it weirdly felt a bit Christmassy today....its coming Bloggers!!
Happy Saturday

Love from me and Twit n Twoo!
