angelas ashes

just finished reading the amazing autobiographical book Angelas Ashes. it is about a young boys extremely poverty-stricken upbringing in Ireland during the 30-50's. i am amazed at the strength of character Francis 'Frank' Mcourt had. He and his surviving brothers had an incredible ability to survive and I find thier stories so inspiring.

izzy lane

i have fallen in love with the gorgous collection of ethical wool garments from Izzy Lane
all of her garments are made from wool that predominantly comes from her own rare breed Wensleydale and Shetland sheep, most of which have been rescued from slaughter. the shop is also approved by the Vegetarian Society which is a big thumbs up from me. she also has some gorgeous shoes and an amazing moc croc bag - above.
