One of those things that you didn’t know you needed, but when you have one you don’t know how you lived without! A great choice of gift from Luks Linen. A item rich in cultural heritage the peshtemal is a traditional Turkish towel that was often given as a wedding gift and used in Hamam’s. Over the years the diversity and popularity of this simplistic, lightweight all rounder has led to an explosion in its popularity.
They say “Endlessly versatile the peshtemal can be used indoors or out as beach or bath towels, as well as scarves, throws, wraps or even as a knotted bag. It is truly a multi-purpose ethical product with a rich lineage deeply rooted in the Turkish way of life … a poster child for minimal living! “
Machine washable, quick drying, lightweight and compact and with a 20 year replace or repair guarantee. Count me in! Prices from £20 for cotton versions, £62.50 for linen mix. MORE HERE.

Traditional Anniversary Gifts By Year: The Meaning –

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][heading]Historic Origins[/heading][vc_column_text]Traditional Anniversary Gifts By Year – Wedding anniversary gifts have historic origins. Giving a gift by year is said to date back to the Holy Roman Empire. Husbands  were said to have given a gift of silver in by crowning their wives with a silver wreathe in on their twenty-fifth anniversary.

A gift of gold was said to then follow with a golden wreath on the fiftieth wedding anniversary. The twentieth century, has led to such traditions being followed and each and every anniversary being represented by a named gift.[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][divider line_type=”Full Width Line” line_thickness=”1″ divider_color=”default”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″ shape_divider_position=”bottom”][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” width=”1/1″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][heading]

Imperfect As The New Perfect!

[/heading][vc_column_text]I have set myself the challenge to make a piece of jewellery per month, made from the material marked by the traditional anniversary gift by year. My intention is to track my story on the bench via social media and blog posts.

I am aiming to avoid the aim of perfection (the killer of so much creative flow) and allow myself to see this simply as a journey of learning.

However with life as it goes and the time restraints of still running a business alongside my new challenge, perfect I am sure will not be attainable! So I am in training, imperfect is the new me!
