Thirty One

Image made up empty bottles of things I have used this past year, things I have received, accumulated, broken and bought. Recycling at it's prettiest? p.s. can't wait to share with you some of the amazingly thoughtful and original gifts I received today.

The '3' - Crabtree and Evelyn rose body wash (empty), Norsca deodorant (empty), Burt's Bees decolletage cream (empty), Decleor eye cream (empty, need more), porcelain Easter gift from mum which I superglued back together when it fell from my shelf when doing another pad reshuffle with candles from I don't know where and ribbon from Paper2, Moxie's, flower used in my profile pic, skull and felt cake broach, Chanel ring was a 30th gift (lucky me), broken iPod shuffle (too much running in the rain) have barely run at all this past year, not a step since the half marathon last October, plastic blue fan from The Society Inc., fake Rolex bought in Bali last year (broken), porcelain bird was a gift from my best friend (broken, the friendship not the bird), porcelain feather from The Society Inc., 30th birthday tag from my sis (still obsessed with Paris), vase from Industria Melbourne with dried flower (from bunch mum bought me as a housewarming gift), plastic ice cream cone (emptied of candy) via my nephew, pink sea urchin from The Society Inc. on Decleor moisturiser (empty), vintage pastry baking shells and pink striped mints from Donna Hay Cornerstore.

The '1' - Claus Porto soap packaged in vintage Portuguese paper, French bottle from Noosa, Cedel Hairspray (empty - love the colour of the bottle and the smell reminds me of getting ready for ballet), Daisy perfume from my angry little brother who bought me this for my 30th, a note from my little sis, a Paris post it note pad, a dried hydrangea from mum's garden.
