A Delightful Dilemma

I was on sick leave today, nursing a bad cough. However it's not all boredom being confined at home. Surfing etsy.com is a surefire way to get inspired and broke!

My favourites below.

Love at First Blush's black leather cuff

Stacy Leigh's cedar brown ruffled elk leather bag

Cookieletta's citrine and hot chocolate brown neck warmer


TheBlackSpotBooks's vintage linen shot sac book necklace

TheBlackSpotBooks's Autumnal Library 11 antique and scrap leather necklace


I love, love, love the cedar brown ruffled bag - and it would be a great conversation starter - but it's at a princely price of US$597, a price I haven't gotten used to. So I will wait until I get used to the idea of NOT having the bag. Or until I can convince myself to flip this much dough to get a ruffled bag that looks like a skirt. What do you think?

Hallo I'm back

Hi! Just wanted to let you know, I'm still alive.


I'm not too proud to admit that it's my first post in close to 6 months. When you've used up your quota of leave-of-absence-from-the-blogsosphere for 10 years, excuses are moot already. So in case anyone cares, I'm back. And I'd be posting randomly as and when I'm free and as and when I like. Feel free to throw a jackhammer at me. If not, please continue to read my sporadic posts.

Today I am inspired by Emma Watson's organic line for peopletree. Especially loving that recycled sweet wrapper necklace. How ingenious, I believe I can try to make that.














The Union Jack tee for guys looks so doodled (a la Quentin Blake doodle), I wouldn't mind wearing that. Love the model's khol-lined eyes, or is it just a natural result of a lack of sleep?

Items from her organic line are made of fair trade cotton, mostly from Bangladesh, India, and are reasonably priced (especially for a Brit earning in pounds). I am almost tempted to get her catalogue, just to ogle at her and the decent clothes. Alas, it doesn't ship outside of Europe/U.S./Canada/Australia/NZ. Be content with these for now.


Your ever-non-reliable blogger,
