Ava, Crafts, House to Home, Make & Do, My Favourite Family, Things I Love

Five things I love right now: November

My birthday is in November, (or Yesvember, as Thea calls it!) so I’ve had no trouble finding a bunch of lovely things to share with you!

1. Golden Girls cross stitch picture. I love The Golden Girls sitcom. It’s such a gentle comedy, yet still really funny. I used to watch reruns of it with my roommate when I lived in America. It was pretty much the only thing we had in common! My sister Debbie made this brilliant picture for me. I love it so much.2. Deluxe Label Maker and pastel tapes from BeryluneSo great I was given it twice! Ryan and Debbie both bought it for me. Now I do love it, but really I can only use one. Luckily the lovely ladies at Berylune took one back so I’m currently deciding what to get instead – I pretty much want everything on their amazing site, go and check it out if you haven’t seen it before! The label maker is living in one of the lovely copper baskets my brother and sister in law gave me – perfect for our copper themed office! I have got lots of plans for this baby.

3. Ava’s birthday card. The front is me wearing heart-shaped sunglasses, and I have chickenpox. IMG_69454. Stork Embroidery Scissors. So pretty and actually sharp, yay! Just need to stop Ava and Thea nicking them now!5. Christmas picture from Wayfair.co.uk. It’s printed on an old dictionary page. I love it. They do non-Christmassy sayings too, so I might have to invest in one for the rest of the year!

    Beautiful Bits there Becky! I love the cross stitch – never seen golden girls but you could apply that to anything couldn’t you?!…Game of thrones? Breaking bad?! They’d make pretty cool cross stitch pictures 😉 #lovelythings
