Monday Must Haves #22

Oi, it's been a crazy couple of weeks!  And not crazy in a 'I'm so busy and it's so much fun!' kind of way ~sad face~ My manager has been offered a position at another store and while she undertakes her training, it's just me and the assistant manager left to run the place.  This means horrible long days, too many early starts and not nearly enough time off ~even bigger sad face~ This not only means I'm neglecting blogging (which really makes me frowny) but I'm also not making enough time for my family or my friends and that's really.not.on.  Everything is lacking at the moment, from rest to crafting to quality time with those I love.  And the worst part is, we don't have any idea how long it's going to be like this for.

So, with my moan out of the way {sorry!} I'd like to dedicate my Monday Must Haves this week to rest, relaxation and being with the people who mean the world to you.

Skull cushion skull pillow colorful throw pillow retro pillow Alexander Henry papel bonito day of the dead purple pillow doily black cushion
♥ First things first; when relaxing properly, one must have both comfortable *and* beautiful cushions to relax upon.  And I'm pretty sure this colourful pretty ticks both of those boxes!  I would love a living room/lounge area full of bright colours (^_^)

Sprinkles Crocheted Afghan Throw- Ready to ship
Secondly, one must have a suitably colourful and snuggly blanket to wrap up in, especially when it's chilly out (like it is today, cor blimey!) My own crocheted blanket is still in the early stages but I'm so keen to attempt something as beautifully colourful as this.

Felted Slippers- Fairy Tale
To complete the insane snuggly/relaxing/awesomeness, what better than a pair of comfy, toasty, *gorgeous* slippers??  I absolutely cannot stand it when my feet are cold, it makes me *so* grumpy and I can't chill out, no matter how hard I try.  These slippers are so beautiful, it would be such a pleasure to slip into them after a long day on my feet!

Birthstone Necklace Family Tree of Life Mother Grandmother Mother in law Sterling Silver Gold genuine gemstone Priority mail
I think this one of my favourite must-haves ever.  I absolutely adore this family tree pendant; the wonderful person who creates these beautiful works of art takes the birthstones of those closest to you and works them together into this stunning piece.  This is such a clever, wonderful idea; you know your pendant would be completely unique and mean *so* much to you personally.  And what better symbol than a tree for a family (^_^)

I hope you're all looking forward to a wonderful week!  Mine is looking crazy busy again ~sighs~ My giveaway didn't go down so well {Thank you to my one entrant - I will be sending you something lovely in the post as a special thanks!} but in a way it's good since I now don't have the free time to make something to the best of my ability (and no-one wants a crocheted rush-job!) Have a great week, take care, be happy and thank you for stopping by today (^_^)
