States of Nature

If reading those stupid comments on Apartment Therapy did anything to diminish my faith in people and their capacity to be kind (or half intelligent), then the lovely Simone of States of Nature fixed that right back up.

A few days ago I received a completely random parcel in the post - the best kind!! Simone and I had never met, but she took upon herself to send me a little cheer up parcel and some kind words after reading my last blog post. Isn't that a completely awesome and thoughtful thing to do?

Gorgeous little parcel from Simone of States of Nature - and how cute is that little envelope made from a map!

Brooches from Simone of States of Nature

And the funny thing is - I'd just lost the brooch that I wore on my scarf every day, had always liked Simone's work, so the pieces she sent me came at a perfect time. And I love them!

Thanks again Simone!! xx

One word - Sigh. I don't have the energy to engage in an intellectual property debate but if you're feeling passionate about the below and want to engage in some good old fashioned comment box squabbling then feel free to do so at Apartment Therapy over here.

Etsy rip-off

Big thanks to Jenny Butler at Apartment Therapy for the post though. I know she wasn't expecting such hearty comments but the sentiment was there and I'm all for raising awareness of rip-off merchants!
