For my birthday last year I received lots of lovely gifts from my friend Alice.
Throughout our time at school I was in awe of the way she could find fantastic bargains, and her knowledge of everything beautiful and lovely.
Whenever we began a new art project she would bring me endless magazine clippings of things to place in my research file. Especially when I did my 60's project, Half the images in that book came from Alice's personal magazine collection! I will always be grateful for all her help <3
Last year on the first of June I excitedly opened up a parcel that I had received through the post. I found a gorgeous seletion of gifts, a beautiful notebook "For all the Secrets" She had written.
A Dawson's Creek diary, which was just amazing.
I think we are the only two people that understand each others love of this show!
Along with a few other surprises - including some lip-gloss with Ariel the mermaid on (amazing right?) came a selection of magazine clippings and pages.
These really excited me! She had included the following pages, which I can never get enough of.
In college she had first shown me these, images of Ann Shore's home. I instantly fell in love!
I think her house is so beautiful!
Along with these were many more pages, some to indulge my guilty pleasure of reading about Katie Price!
I think Alice knows my love of things better then anyone, we seem to have very similar interests. This includes our love of Jacqueline Wilson's writing, which we believe we can never get to old for no matter how many birthdays pass <3
