Where images speak for themselves…..
Calling all magpies! Here’s Part 2 of All That Glitters featuring soft whites and creams as opposed to the black and grey in Part 1.

What better way to adorn my crappy locks than with my collection of combs and pins?

Granted every wall is white and floors are bare but even so – clashing has never seemed so good. Here’s a few green things from around my home (complete with dust and all!)…….
