Busy Sunday & goodies

 After months of waiting i finally got my room back so Sunday was spent putting it back together. I'd already started when i decided to take photo's.
This is what was left in the hallway after everything else was shoved into the room.

Some of the mess i was sorting through.
 i read about these shelving units on a fellow bloggers page so Saturday i went to get them.
Fabrics all packed away.
All clean & posters up.
Shelves filled & those hangings are now hung up.
This lovely little package arrived for me from Joanne. Aside from illustrations Jo makes beautiful jewellry
I shouted myself these cute cat earrings for my birthday. After buying scissor fobs from Tatyana recently  i asked her did she make fobs with cat charms & the answer was yes.
this pretty spotted box arrived this week from Tatyana & inside was 3 fobs i also shouted myself for my birthday
& for my reading this week
