I buy far to few items from etsy, and I buy far too few items from fellow bloggers/ladies in black. But I'm trying to change that. Good artists need to be promoted and helped along. It might be a great part of their income.
I have longing for one of Countess Audronashas lovely work for a long time. Last time I checked her etsy store I couldnt resist this lovely heart brooch called Hanged by love.
It has lots of lovely details and is so well made. I put it on my coat beside a black flower brooch I made. It's perfect :). As a little extra treasure she sent this little key pendant along with the parcel. I love things like that, that little extra surprise. I will use it in one of my crafts project later (jewellery, asseccory or scrapbooking)Countess Audronasha has a wonderful blog with lots of DIY posts and Gothic lolita style, very inspirational.
Talking about inspiration, I got severe lack of it lately. Work has drained me on energy and other private matters. It's strange how two more hours at work can get so exhausting. But I have to thank the yoga and my better food habits for coping.
