Christmas Book Haul

Christmas.  April.  One does not usually put them together.

But I do!

The lovely embroidery of my online persona was made by YouTuber elmify.  To see more of her craft work, check out her etsy.

I took art lessons as a kid, and having become friends with Maddy and seeing Sanne draw and paint, it's made me really want to take it up again.

We did Secret Santa in my flat, and Rosi got my name.  She got me some beautiful short stories from Penguin.

My mom came to visit me in London for Christmas, and after seeing me loving flick through this edition in a Waterstones, she insisted on getting it for me.  Seriously though, this is a beautiful binding--biblical almost.

I've been keeping journals pretty regularly since high school.  And because my life has been so... eventful over the last year or so, I run out of paper annoyingly quickly.

My Christmas gift from Sanne.  She knows me well.

  1. Books, books, beautiful books..
    What somber expressions I pull internally
    when I see the price of words
    and feel the edge of a coin or two in my pocket.

    This really is true - but I guess I have the library.
    On the other hand, I find myself having to restrain from marking and underlining the library books at times:(
    And I miss the smell of new books sometimes too lol.

  2. Lovely journals! I'd love to see some of your art if you start up again!

  3. these idoms look so.. pretty that it makes me wanna go out and buy stuff... shame on you, Marion
