Mini Moo.

here is ANOTHER post about the brilliant Moo and their Minicards.
ive ordered Minicards and business cards from Moo before, and i was so happy with the colours and the quality. i saw a link on twitter a few weeks ago for 100 FREE Minicards [all you pay is p&p], so i got some in a 'Textomatic' design, so they would match the business cards i got form Moo previously.
here are the Minicards in their little box, how cute:
this sweet little Minicard was also in with the box, how lovely:
here are some of the Minicards in their 'rainbow' colours:
here are the new Minicards, alongside the business cards i got recently. they match perfectly:
here is pic of the back of the Minicards with all my info on:

YES. i had also noticed Antonia tweeted that all orders would recieve a FREE gift also, so that was good!

Primark Mini Jewellery 'Haul'

ok, so i went to town the other day, and although i am angered at the lack of sizes my local Primark seems to have out on the racks/shelves, i always love their jewellery.
this isnt a proper 'haul' as i only bought a few things, but i thought id share them with you:
firstly, i got this sweet pack of 6 earrings, and they were in the SALE for only £1! for six pairs of studs, i HAD to have them!
then i got this hand harness, cos i had been looking at some on ebay, but this one was only £2, which is great! i did have to alter it a bit though, because ive got quite small hands, but it fits great now:
then i got this sweet 'Pisces' necklace for only 50p! AMAZING!
then, this isnt jewellery, but i got it at the same time, so here it is. these nail wraps were also only 50p, so if they dont work, or i mess it up, i dont mind!
there you go, thats my mini 'haul', hope youve enjoyed this post.

little trinkets.

i was gona do a blog post AGES ago about my wee collection of little trinket/pill boxes, but didnt. then i mentioned it to Anna [via twitter] and she said she would like to see my collection so far. so here it is:
i got most of these from car boot sales/antiques fairs for like 50p-£2 each!
the two below are my favourites, the little dinky one in particular i just LOVE!
the 2 below are a bit different from the rest of the collection, as theyre ceramic/porcelain. i got them at different boot sales/antiques fairs at totally different times, which is WEIRD! i just think theyre really cute [i love polka dots]
i also have this metal box, which is pretty big in comparison to the others in the 'collection and is more like a mini jewellery box, rather than a trinket box, but its with all my other boxes on my bookcase, so here it is:
i just love the detail in the middle, and the swirls!
hope you like my little collection of trinket/pill boxes.
whats your collection!?
