days through photos

 
  
  
♥ Lovely new pocket watch necklace I bought today. Isn't the key feature darling?
♥ Girls night in with a classic Audrey Hepburn film anyone?
♥ I've been wanting cameo earrings for ages. I saw these and had to buy them! Bonus for me: only $2!
♥ Christmas card construction is heaps of fun! I may have went a little crazy with colour though...

The week leading up to Christmas is always hectic in one way or another. My family and I have been scurrying around the house getting it clean, making food for Christmas day and finishing off the last few people on our list for gifts. I, for one, am quite proud of myself as I managed to complete everyone all in one week! And, I'm so excited about Christmas, I'm having trouble sleeping! I went shopping today and as soon as I got in the car to go home my eyes were drooping like crazy... I think some chamomile tea tonight, a few drops of lavender oil on my pillow and reading about the further adventures of Merry Hanson {the main character in Summerhill Secrets by Beverly Lewis} might do the trick. Only 5 days to go!
