I think I'm in love

Yes I know it was all so sudden. But they say if you don't look then love just happens and I'm so happy to say it has happened for me.

It's still very early days but I know that I am smitten.

Would you like an introduction?

Really? Are you sure?
this is my bargain UJ doormat. £4 at Matalan but with the 20% discount voucher they sent me and the bits and bobs I bought at the same time my doormat was basically free. :)
How could I resist? It is now the redeeming feature of my very drab back hall.
Oh yeah I'm supposed to be Christmas shopping ooops.

Over the shoulder boulder holders

Fashion is something that really does make me giggle sometimes. Infact it's not even the fashion part of it, it's just pure consumerism gone mad. They'll make anything and try to get people to buy just about anything all in the name of money.

The latest offering, well the clue is in my post title. That's what my dear old Dad used to call bras.

Have you seen the latest bra on offer in Tesco?

It's called The Limitless Bra and is the brain child of some wifey that was on The Apprentice. Apparently you can wear it in hundreds of different ways and therefore is wonderful under your Christmas dresses. Hundreds of ways? Really? Somehow I think you'd find yourself repeating the same way. It's basically 2 cups and a selection of straps. Each cup has 24 hook positions and the back strap has 28. Is it just me or does that just sound like lots of wee bits that would rub and annoy.

And this beauty is a mere snip at £16. Sizes you ask? Well since you asked so nicely 32 - 38 A - D. Looks to me like the only bra size that would acheive any kind of support from this flimsy multi hook thing is the A cup but then maybe I'm just upset as it doesn't go up to my size. :)

Something to share

You may remember me telling you all about this fabric site before and me swooning over the lovely fabrics and spending lots of pennies on FQs that I've yet to build up the courage to actually cut up and use. Anyway I had an email from them today informing of the following so I just had to come share it with those that I know just might appreciate it. ;)
