I've said before that I do not share every aspect of my life with an online audience. Some experiences remain precious secrets, my own and other people's troubles are not disclosed and dirty linen isn't aired in public, or indeed all over Facebook! So today, instead of in depth exposure of personal lives I give you frippery.
When it comes to ornamentation I normally go large. See the big fish necklace that I'm wearing in my profile picture. The arty stuff I have around the home too tends to be in your face pieces that make a statement and are hard to miss. I hope you get the idea.
On Saturday afternoon in Brixham I was banished to wander the charity shops whilst Lou went and bought my Christmas present in Sam's Soaps and More, a friendly place and a locally run source of all things wonderful and fragrant. This tiny trinket box caught my eye. At 3x2" it goes completely against the normal grain, and even though a bit of the paintwork is flaky, I love it. Now it sits on my bedside table, a reminder of a constantly changing life where there is always hope. Those flood waters will ease eventually.
