keepsakes and christmas time

 
  
From top: This pretty pocket watch necklace goes with anything and everything. Necklaces like this always make me feel special and slightly... whimsical. I love the whole 'Alice in Wonderland' feel. I've been wearing these earrings all the time lately. They are very special because not only are the dried flowers inside the enamel real, but Izzy has the same ones. We bought two sets earlier in the year in alternative to getting BFF necklaces  The last necklace has a feminine but tribal feel to it and goes very well with white lace dresses.  

 
Lately, I've been getting more and more into the Christmassy mood. I've been listening to the jolly carols by Judy Garland, Doris Day and Frank Sinatra, making rum balls and wrapping gifts for under the tree. I'm just so excited about it! Only 10 days to go ♥
How are your Christmas preparations coming along?

How gorgeous! I have a similar necklace, but smaller and I would love a bigger one. The earrings too are darling (I don't have pierced ears though unfortunately)

I'm getting into the Christmas mood too, but I'm having trouble buying the last few presents, I have no idea what to get! Next week will be a massive baking fest...

xx Carina
