my presents are all wrapped. I used the gorgeous frankie posters/calenders again this year as I really loved the look of them last year and there were a few giggles as everyone opened them to reveal the calenders inside with my notes of dates and things to remember. I really love the black and white animal illustration this year as well as the world map.

I didn't quite have enough with the November/December calender still on the fridge so ended up using one of my past favourites (the last image) which turns out is from 2008!!! Which brings me to this long do you keep your frankie calender/posters for? which then brings me to the next long do your keep your frankie magazines for? I have every edition of frankie since I first came across it which would have been in 2007 at least! They are nicely stacked in two piles (towers) with other lovely magazines: real living, country style, peppermint, donna hay and inside out...none of which I can bring myself to throw out or give away..why? Each time I sit down to go through them I feel inspired so they go back in their colourful piles.

Well, enough rambling from me, I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and lots of laughs and fun with your family and friends this festive season xo

through Sandrine's eyes


I really enjoy looking at my work through the eyes of someone else. It's so nice to see things featured and framed in a different way. Sandrine Marsh of Sandrine Marsh Accessories took these lovely images of stalls at the GoMA Christmas market on Saturday. There are more over on the brisstyle blog.

Thanks Sandrine x
