Over the weekend I finished this advent calendar mainly for Anya, who is 3, but also for my two step sons when they come to stay with us. Every envelope contains 3 chocolate coins plus small surprise for A. Stickers, beads, hair clips, crayons etc. I can't wait for her to start opening it. Boys are already 13 & 17 and although they didn't want to miss the chocolate, Christmas is not such a big deal for them anymore. But Anya loves it. We wrote a letter and drew a picture for Father Christmas yesterday, left it by fireplace last night and to her surprise it wasn't there this morning! It's all getting exciting again through her little eyes...

3. The Holly Tree by Charles Dickens
4. Definition Of Sport - antique encyclopaedia
5. The Rules Of Ice Hockey- antique encyclopaedia

They are all originals created from antique books, over twenty layers of history and love in one picture.

I spent most of the last 4 days at home surrounded by boxes of tissues, drinking lemon tea and I had a lot of time to think. I planned things for next year, for my shop, gathered ideas and thoughts. There will be few items discontinued in next couple of months. So just a quick note if you are thinking of buying these, hurry up! They won't be available soon. And two of them will be these:Little Hearts in Grass - small + large size
Love Hearts in Hot Pink - small + large size
at the moment they are still available in my shop
photos: little hearts -grass , save the date, hotel restaurant, green dress, blue wall room, love hearts in hot pink, neon bride, hot pink pants
have a great weekend!

This year I have been extremely well organised (in my terms) when it comes to Christmas preparation. I took these photos in late August, and some of these have been used as Christmas postcards, which I add to every order in my shop. Enjoy bright pre - Christmas inspiration.

We had a great time, got back couple of days ago, very tired and jet lagged but full of fantastic memories. We travelled with a few friends ( one of them was her :) and her husband. M. and him run NY marathon on Sunday and as our friend said ( it was his first one) it's better then 10 motivational days. The support was fantastic, very uplifting and loud. I was taking loads of videos, so if time allows I will try to make my NY video. We stayed in Chelsea and I took tips from this book and from Cup of Joe NY guide. I especially loved these restaurants (Freemans , Co.) Well done to M. who is a huge dreamer and achiever and huge thank you to my parents who came to look after Anya for the whole week. See you next time NY.
