A day off!

I have now finished my Work Placement, so today was my first Friday off for 12 weeks! How I am going to *love* having these days off again! Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed my placement, but is such a long week working 46 hours for a whole 12 weeks! Next Friday though, is my final lesson, which is only a half day anyway!

So, I was up bright and early this morning (6am) as I didn't want to waste the day! I cut some fabric ready to make a bag I have had on my 'to do list' for SO long, then I was off to run some errands in Exeter, Launceston and to catch up with Dennis for lunch!

While catching up with Pauline, I noticed she had these necklace stands. I have wanted one for SO long, but just could not decide on which one! I have my necklaces hanging around my bedside lamp, and when I want one, they are always a little tangled (and I was looking everywhere for about a month for my favourite, I had given up, recently it was found hidden behind the jumble - it was there all along!), it looks messy too! And, Pauline had a whopping 30% off them all...... Whats a girl to do - make a decision and buy one!

I couldn't decide out of the red velvet dress, or pink tutu..... then decided I like this black 'formal' dress complete with a 'bling' necklace! Ok, MINE!!

I now have it sitting on my dressing table, next to Lottie!

I know the pics are terrible, it does not do the stand any justice at all, but it is yucky outside (that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it), so I took one with flash (top) and one without to see which one is best.... both a bit average!!

Wonder how long it will take Dennis to see it!

Back to the bag................

Ahhh, way more disciplined than me Sarah - if I'd have had such a hard time choosing I would have probably bought both....then not enjoyed either because of the overspending! Enjoy your Friday's. xox

Hope you had a great day off, Sarah :) My friend Anne gave me one of these necklace stands for my 50th birthday and it is very simple - no shiny bits or fabrics, etc. LOVE it!!!

Hi Sarah

Up at 6 on your day off? That's keen but sounds like a great day. Those necklace stands work so well and yours is very pretty.
