"Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful"-William Morris
Now I like even the things that are useful to be beautiful too where possible! And I was on the hunt for a new diary for work *YAWN* (yes, this post is about my work diary! Oh, the glamorous life of a visual merchandiser, eh?)
Anyway, I hunted the shops after work for the perfect one, but alas the lovely brown leather one with the gold edged pages was teeny tiny, and thus not meant to be. So, instead I bought a bright, bold patterned one, and pimped it up, a la craft.
That's right folks, Tim Westwood wishes he could present this episode of "Pimp My Diary"...
After a lot of hand sewing, red and blue felt and dusky pink vintage lace, my diary now looks a lot more wonderful than when he started his life. He's a bit wonky but I like him like that. And now he's even got a little pen holder on his spine! Glorious.
