Had numerous phone calls and emails to follow up, then I decided to start on my tri-monthly clean up - for anyone living in a 'white house' you'll know how important this is! That's not to say that I don't regularly clean my house, of course I do, but when you live in one with paler colours, you just need to keep on top of things, plus, as I'm a bit of a magpie, I have to be judicious and make sure I re-evalute what gets kept and what goes in the respective recycling bags!
And that's when I found a cute pair of flat sandals that I bought a few years back which were nice, but I lost a stone in one of them, so couldn't really wear them again, but as is usual for me, I kept them just in case I used them somewhere or other. Well today I got my chance, and this is what I came up with - guess some of you have seen something very similar to this bracelet from Odd Molly, yes? I couldn't believe just have similar the stones were, so I salvaged those from the decent sandal and stitched them onto to one of my bracelets and I have to admit that it looks pretty cool!
Wish I'd kept on with the cleaning up, as that's when the madness started!
I ended up attempting to use the overlocking machine that my friend had lent me, as I want to buy one, but wanted to try hers out first - and with that, sat there for almost 3 hours and had obviously worked myself into such a state attempting to sort out the tension on it, that I had a very bad anxiety attack without even realising it! It felt like I'd been hit instantly with a severe bout of indigestion, which I never suffer from, and I just couldn't breathe and I was dizzy and the pain in my upper back was awful, but some deep breathing exercises eventually sorted me out and after about 2 hours, the feeling went away - it felt very scary, that's for sure!
So I've been sitting here for a while now, listening to my favourite singer who always has a calming effect on me, whilst crocheting and finishing off this little bracelet as (thankfully!) I find that to be very theraputic too, so all's good!
Guess I'm just going to 'chill out' for the rest of the day tho!

And finished off with the ususal crocheted edges in a contrasting colur which just makes it all stand out!
This vest top is offered for sale at £40.00
Have a great weekend everyone!
The diamante one I made to go with my Taradiddle dress which I wore to my friends wedding a few weeks ago and it looked perfect with the whole outfit. I'd love to say that I have photographic evidence of this, however, I only had two photo's taken of me - both of which were soo bad that there's no way I'm posting them here- well that's what happens when you come back from the hairdressers the day before and don't like the way you've had your hair done, then you mess up the fake tan the night before the wedding - then to cap it all, I had to re-start my make-up again on the morning of the wedding, after brushing my nose with the mascara wand! LOL.
The stones in this one are so very pretty - like the colours of the rainbow! I'm going to wear this one tonight with my Powder Revolution blouse when I head off to dinner with some good friends - looking forward to it very much!
I was thrilled to bits to hear that my best friend Corina liked the one I sent her, as we have the matching ones posted here a while ago - Friendship Bracelets rule! ;-)

I don't know whether I'm more concerned that I just cannot bid on the item, as it ends tomorrow, or that my email address has been assigned elsewhere.....should be the latter I guess?
Yesterday Campadre, today Trendsales - it's never ending!
Feel like I'm destined never to get my hands on this tunic! :-(
That's just my gripe of the day out of the way then........off to prepare dinner!
I believe I will be having a glass of wine tonight! LOL

Anyhow, I couldn't help myself, and as you can see, I bought the Chalk Appeteaser dress as I wanted something else to wear with my Chalk Revolution blouse, as I always wear my Rose Spoiler with it, but having tried the Appeteaser on, find that it looks more summery and fresh with this alternative.
But once again, I like to fiddle with things and so they got the 'treatment' also, as I added some cream bows to the lace top of them also and now they look perfect with my Ilse Jacobsen rain boots and Belstaff Trailmasters - YAY to all that!
But you're probably wondering what the sad part was, well the owner of the shop has decided to move to larger premises - 8 miles away! Not the end of the world I know, but just as they start selling Odd Molly and Ti-Mo, they move away from me -typical or what? LOL
Will have to ask the owner next time I see her (hopefully before she heads off, as she is actually one of my neighbours!) if she would consider stocking Chill Norway next!

Here's this weeks offerings.............
* PRETTY CROCHETED CAMISOLE *
This pale camel crocheted camisole is in a shell pattern with a pretty pale pink ribbon trim and matching little bows everywhere, finished with white crocheted edgings. It's pure cotton and can be washed in the machine on a cool wash and re-shaped whilst dry.
The size is between an Odd Molly 0 and 1 as it fits really snuggly on, but will mould to your shape, which makes it very figure enhancing indeed!
This close fitting effect comes from the fact that it buttons up at the back as you can see here and the ribbon ties are adjustable.
The detailing is super pretty!
The camisole is offered for sale at £45.00
* SPARKLY DIAMANTE CHOKER *
This lovely crocheted choker is in a pale pink cotton edged in a white shell pattern and finished at the back with satin ribbon, which makes it adjustable. The diamante stones are super sparkly, which unfortunately, the pictures do not do justice to!
Happy Shopping and thanks for dropping by!
