new addition to the tattoo collection

So after 2 long years of planning my tattoo Iv finally made the push and got it started. Iv wanted a half sleeve for a very long time and I had it started last year with the two roses on my forearm. . . then one thing lead to another loosing a couple of jobs and finding other things to spend my pennies on like gin and vintage tea dresses .. then i got back onto my arm and began drawing up the rest of my sleeve and booked in. So yesterday Mel made good progress and i managed to sit for 4 hours and got a good chunk done ... i LOVE it .. its exactly what iv had in my head and i cant stop looking at it. I'm a very happy tattooed lady :)
Round 2 booked in for the 28th so keep and eye out for more photographs .. do you like it? ...

one man's junk is another man's treasure

Likes and Dislikes of others have always fascinated me, how a particular item can amaze some people yet have the opposite effect on some one else .. all of which add to a persons character.
I'm often described by friends as a hoarder, in my opinion I'm a home-maker and like to surround myself with beautiful and interesting objects.
On a recent trip to Edinburgh to visit my dear friend, she took me to one of the strangest yet fascinating places iv ever been too. A place where curiosity definitely gets the better of you, but its OK .. your free to explore! ..
Located near the coast and on the edge of a very eerie forest lies a junkyard .. a junk yard filled of hidden treasure.
I had several 'Alice in wonderland' kind of moments clambering around old tables and chairs to find the beauties hidden behind .. although i enjoyed discovering these pieces, I also felt a little sad that they were just stood outside in the rain, looking lost and forgotten ... i would have happily given them all a new home .. but then leaving them there lets others enjoy the magic.
I hope you like the photos.
