New wallet

Sunday, October 31, 2010

Well my 9 year or something like that Camel handbag started to fall to pieces, so in a moment of splurginess I bought a new fancy and quite expensive one:-) And of course I had to make a new wallet to go with it:
Sorry for the blurry first pic, but the weather here is rather blahaha today.
I used fake suede (can't for the life of me come up with the right English word) and some simple but artistic (??) threadwork on the closing flap.

A small coin pocket at the back.

And 8 credit card holders inside.

I'm rather pleased with the result and have got some nice comments:-)

Feelgood feeling

Wednesday, October 6, 2010

One thing that make me feel good and that is to have a pile of new books awaiting to be read. I do have four Billy bookcases choke full - you know when your first you have one row of books, then you pile some more on top of them and when that's full, you store them in a second front row too. I know I that I tried to throw away some older ones when we moved here in 1999, but the DH got chocked - you never ever throw ways books was his statement. So I lend already read ones to friends and family and in some cases I hope they forget to return them. In other cases (like all Anne Rice, Philip Pullman, Shantaram and others) I'm gonna save "forever".
Anyhow, on Monday and today the latest order from arrived and now I have a nice selection to read, among them a new fantasy series "The Opal Cowen" trilogy and - the one I started and enjoy tremendously "The Help" by Katryn Stockett.

Feeling of richness can also come from something as trivial as a new hoard of nail polishes LOL.

Fall has really arrived, the leaves are turning and a strong wind is blowing = :-(
