One of my new years resolutions is to sell my unwanted items on eBay each month – a big contrast to last years resolution to buy a dress each month! So I am over the first hurdle, I have put my first item on, a very cute table and chairs that has sat in my outhouse since May after I replied it with my antique farmhouse table.
Since listing the item I have become addicted and I’m constantly checking to see how many watchers and bids I have. Currently 66 watchers, 8 bids, up to £45.99 and it still has 3 days 7 hours to go. Very exciting, a great resolution.
Recently whilst working on a food shoot, I got to choose the food I wanted to shoot. As I’m usually shooting meat and fish, I thought it would make a nice change to shoot something a little prettier… I chose jelly.

Word challenge of the fortnight was ‘juxtaposed’, as usual I interpreted it with as self portrait, see below 😀
With the new year approaching, plus spending the holidays at home I have been feeling very motivated and inspired. I am currently working on my list of new year resolutions, plus a healthy eating plan. I’ve cleared out my wardrobe and have taken two boxes full to the charity shop. Plus I have put my first ever item on ebay… feeling very proud about this one as it’s taken me 7 months to get round to doing this and now that I have I’ve become addicted to checking my listing to see how many watchers I have (current status… 2 days in, 34 watchers and 1 bidder). In general I’ve been cleaning and tidying, getting ideas on refreshing the looks of my rooms and writing lots of lists (to do list, wish list, shopping list, resolutions). I’m going to hit this new year running.
To add to my list of things to do, I checked my Pinterest board ‘Nice Ideas’ this morning. I had totally forgot some of the lovely things I had posted on there, things that I want to make… so they’re going to have to be added to a list somewhere, but to keep them fresh in my mind, I thought I’d post them on here too.

Sweet idea.. why not!

Back in January I decided on a new years resolution I could keep and would also encourage me to spend my money instead of obsessively saving it all the time. I decided my challenge was going to buy myself a dress each month. The only resolution I have ever seen through to the end.
I was a very lucky girl this year and have been very spoilt indeed. Here’s a small selection of just some of the beautiful gifts I received this year… I must have been good.
