A Very Mulberry Christmas

Merry Christmas! I hope you are all enjoying the Yuldetide Gay, I trust that you were all good girls and boys (Do I have any male readers? I hope so) this year and Santa was generous.

So far I've had a very relaxing Christmas with lots of delicious food and many, many alcoholic beverages. I've been watching twee films like Little Women and The Railway Children and making inspiration notes for sewing projects. Roberta's coat at the end of The Railway Children and Amy March's bows were my favourite.

"Come and trim my tree, with some decorations bought at Mulberry"


Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without presents and this year I was a quite lucky girl. My favourite gifts seem to have followed a Really Raaaatheer British theme, a little red pillar box that houses a pencil sharpener, a brooch shaped like a bicycle and a copy of Canteen's beautifully designed book.

My favourite gift of all was from my sweet beloved fiancé, who surprised me with a Mulberry Alexa. I was so excited when I saw it that I ran to hug him but since I'm so clumsy, I slipped (socks and a polished wooden floor didn't help), knocked him down too and we both ended up in a heap on the floor laughing and covered in bruises. Sore but very, very happy!

What was your favourite present?

This is completely off topic but I've been receiving quite a few emails asking the same sort of questions. Mostly about sewing, hair product and sponsors. Since I'm a little apprehensive of signing up to formspring, I thought it would be easiest if I answered them all in one go. If you'd like me to answer any question in particular, feel free to leave a comment or send me an email.

  1. Yay you got it!!! Oh I'm so happy for you, it really is a dream bag :)
    I love the bicycle brooch too, so cute!
    My favorite present was incredibly one that was supposed to be a joke, a dress that is so so kitsch that I just had to dedicate it a post on my blog :D
    I wish you a great and lazy holiday Cait! Good night!

  17. What a lovely bag! I have always adored the neely, but sadly it is so far out of my price range that shouldn't even bother wishing really!
    What I would love to know is what pattern do you use to sew your skirts? Could you possibly do a tutorial? Pretty please!
