I found the brooch I'm wearing today in a charity shop on a trip to Suffolk one day. As soon as I saw it, I absolutely fell in love with it. £3.50 and a nice natter with the shop lady later and it was in my bag. I wear it quite often and it's a real statement piece so I tend not to wear any other jewellery with it. Today for example, I wore it with a boyfriend jacket, a lace smock, some Edwardian style boots and black tights. It really adds character to an outfit I find. Perfect for a jaunt in a nice country park you might say.
So that's exactly what I did! Except I had a teeny tiny puppy with me which makes it ten times better. I have spent the whole afternoon puppy-sitting a little long haired dachshund who is absolutely adorable and who I might actually have to steal. Named Otto, he was just lovely. Although my Zippy hot water bottle cover might not say the same thing..poor thing, he'll never be the same again.

He's now fast asleep, as I soon will be too after eating the massive-est bowl of homemade Spaghetti Carbonara you have ever seen. I've got a belly full of pasta, a dog asleep on my lap and a smile on my face. This was a good day.
