Restocking my Lucky Sixpence keepsake boxes today as I sold out this week. Just took delivery of a large order!
Did you know these boxes were designed by myself and are exclusively handmade and printed in a factory here in England?
I LOVE the metallic blue print of the traditional wedding poem, so so pretty! 💙
During a heated debate about any event, many of us have heard these famous words: “I read a statistic stating X, Y, and Z about this matter and therefore conclude that my viewpoint is accurate.” It seems like statistics are the stuff the gods themselves are made of. In the article Telling the Truth About Damned Lies and Statistics, Joel Best, a professor of sociology and criminal justice at the University of Delaware, describes in detail the dangers of such reverence for statistics. Having read the article multiple times in the past, and now again today, I can see the lasting validity in his statements and how using discerning eyes to interpret statistical data, instead of drunk goggles, can be of great service to anyone in any field.
In the article, Best urges us to “become critical about statistics” and “be prepared to ask questions about numbers.” Now, in a society where a common programmed response to math is “it’s not for me” or “I don’t get it,” asking the public to be critical and ask questions about numbers seems like an off request. However, statistical data is something we live and breathe each day and the author highlights some questions one may ask when interpreting this data. First, to me, is the question “who produced the number, and what interests might they have?” This question can shed light on who funded the research for the statistic, the researchers involved and their interests, the historical context for the statistic, and much more relevant guiding information to address the purpose of the research.
Best also addressed a reason why knowing “the sources for this number” may be an important factor in determining the credibility of any statistic. He used the example of the graduate student misquoting the Children's Defense Fund regarding the doubling of "the number of American children gunned down" to illustrate how knowing where to find a source can shed light on exaggerated numbers.

For the love of #flowers !!! These made everyone’s heart skip a beat. Then you add the bride’s grandma’s scarf and well, I might have photographed these to bits. 🤭
My weakness is sentimental inspired images with a whole lot of personality and this one is that.

Something Old day 2: a photo of my great uncle Ron, my uncle Ronnie, and my mama. Taken in either 1970 or 1971. I keep this photo on the table beside my bed as a special keepsake. I lost my Uncle Ronnie a couple years back and I miss him very dearly. As a kid, I'd get so excited when he stop by, out of the blue, for one of his random visits. This man had me opening his beer bottles for him by the time I was six. 😂 #SavetheDateSweeps
O L D || Something old, something new. Ons interieur is voornamelijk strak en modern, maar hier en daar staan er een aantal antieke items. Een stoeltje, een letterbak, een mariabeeld en ook dit meidenkastje van mijn moeder. In zijn oorspronkelijke staat. Ik heb heel vaak op het punt gestaan om het een lik (krijt) verf te geven, zodat het wat beter matched bij de kleuren van mijn interieur of de trend van het moment. Alleen de charme van het kastje vind ik juist het kleurverloop van het hout. Zo mooi! Uiteindelijk is in de loop der jaren mijn interieur gaan matchen met het kastje. Hij springt er echt uit tussen het strakke zwart/wit/grijs. Een eyecatcher! #antique#wood#cabinet#somethingold#interior#mixandmatch#plants#greencorner#pictureframes

French toast anyone?
