An Ode To My Laptop

Spending some quality time with my ol’ Macbook, Taylor this evening (Giving names to inanimate objects that you love more than is acceptable, FTW). Taylor is about 6/7 years old and despite having a dead battery and being full to bursting he still functions amazingly. When I’ve saved up some I am going to take him for a ‘service’ and they will make him brand new. I just cannot entertain the idea of buying an upgrade. Taylor holds my entire life, he is my comfort blanket. I am sure late nights of Livejournal-ing back in the day have turned into me actually sleeping in my bed with him, not by conscious choice, you understand ;)

To make this post a little more exciting to those of you without unhealthy attachments to material possessions… have a sneak peek at two new items due for listing in my jewellery store at Etsy:

Cupcake necklace, jewellery, onetenzerosevenStrawberry Cupcake – Necklace

This necklace (currently listed in my store in a lemon yellow option) was inspired by the lovely Cariad Clay‘s work and incorporates one of her pieces. The beautiful pink glass beads are tipped with rare vintage beads. I just need to find some large silver jump rings to string all the pieces together :)

Vervain necklace, witchcraft, protection, jewellery, onetenzeroseven, vampire diariesVial of Verbena – Necklace

For all Vampire Diaries fans and/or those interested in witchcraft – A vial of real vervain (verbena) to hang close to your body. Legends hold that vervain protects people from vampires. It can be used in a variety of ways, one being to simply keep it near you. There is also a religious significance as some believe it was used to stop the bleeding of Christ’s wounds when he was taken down from the cross. In Ancient Rome, the herb was deemed very powerful and was used to sanitise homes and temples.

I think I’ll wear my Vial of Verbena day and night ;) It’s no secret amongst my friends that, despite being a fan of True Blood and Vampire Diaries, I am terrified of vampires. Always have been…

To Bestill My Aching Heart

Sunday evening and I am making gift tags while Boyfriend is creating and recording music. This is how I dreamed my life would be for so many years. Doggy isn’t quite asleep by the fire, it’s not raining hard on the attic roof. It’s the middle of summer and doggy is asleep on the sofa so it will do ;) Ah, how dreams can turn into reality.

The sounds coming out of Boyfriend’s guitar are really stunning. They make me twist and ache inside, as if the sound is one that I have been desperate to hear all my life, without ever actually knowing it.

Right now he is picking and finding his way around the notes again as the piece in question has been lying dormant for some time. Part of the ache I feel is the desperate need to hear this song live, amongst hundreds of like minded fans who all feel the same twists and desperation in their heart.

If only he can keep believing in himself long enough to realise the beauty in what he creates — Oh, hold me. Now it’s bellowing through the amp… to realise the beauty in what he creates, to play the live shows so I can be there in the front, feeling the passion of it all wash over me. To bestill my aching heart.
