This year I have decided that I'd like to show my gratitude for the different people, friends and things in my life, that bring me glitter and sparkle. One of the things I have decided to do, is try to spread a little glitter and sparkle myself by sending small gifts to people. If I have something that I know someone else will love, I've decided to let it go, package it up, and send it to the person I think would love it.
A little while ago I found a vintage throw in a shop, and knew that it needed to go to someone who would appreciate it. I bought it and put it aside, hoping that I'd find a good home for it. Last week, I found the throw neatly folded in a drawer and realised that Vix who writes the blog "Vintage Vixen" would probably love it. I've been reading Vix's blog for a good while now and it's fabulous. In every sense of the word. A heady mix of fantastic vintage fashion, and sassiness, with a big dollop of Vix's joie de vivre. I packaged up the throw and sent it to her. It felt good knowing the throw was going to a good home. Vix being the gorgeous woman that she is, responded by sending me a gift.
But not just any gift.
A while ago Vix featured a book on her blog that she had found. It was full of glitter and sparkle. Literally. It was a book all about jewellery designers, jewellery fashions and styles. I remember drooling over it. When the post man came this week, and a parcel arrived, I was really touched that Vix would send something to me. I was beyond excited as I opened it up. And actually squealed when I saw what it was.
The book I had dribbled over on Vix's blog! Fashion For Jewels by Carol Woolton. Carol Woolton is jewellery editor for Vogue. She has the most gorgeous website full of jewellery
porn gorgeousness at http://www.carolwoolton.com. If you love jewellery, sparkle, glitter and glamour, her website is a fantastic place to lose yourself for a few days a short while.
Vix, thank you for the fabulous gift. I love it.

♥Little Bliss List # 4♥
So here is my bliss list for this week...
- Sitting with a cup of tea and reading my new book.
- Doodling in my art journal with markers, pastels and paints.
- Getting a visit from my mum, dad, and Zaide, their dog. (Zaide is an ex-guide dog for the blind. He was named by the Guide Dog Association. I love it that his name is Arabic for "sparkling, bright"!)
- Being given the best of doggy welcomes by Zaide when he saw me. All four of his feet actually came off the ground.
- Sitting and eating chocolate cake with my mum and dad, and having a chat.
If you want to link up with Favourite Thing On A Friday, you can do that just below this post. I'm also linking up with Liv Lane. So feel free to join in over there too.
Sending love and smiles,
