from tiny acorns



Do you believe in coincidence or fate? Things that seem to happen at the right time as if you weren't really looking for them. The other day after I came back from staying at a friends I came home to a little package from the lovely people at Vivienne Westwood.

I opened the little grey box not having ordered anything or any heads up and found inside the little pouch a silver acorn pendant, since my mother had passed away I lost my large oval locket she brought me so I had been searching for the perfect little locket to enclose a lock of her hair, slightly morbid I know but my Grandmother had always had a lock of my Granddads hair and I just wanted to have a bit of my mother close to me always so I asked the Nurse when my mother passed if I could keep a lock of her hair so when this acorn arrived at my door I knew my mother would approve with all her heart, she was the biggest fan of Vivienne Westwood so it was perfect. I met Vivienne back at the start of the year and I think its one off the bucket list, mum was so proud she text all her relatives haha so I took the parcel as a little heads up from the mother.

  4. The team at Vivienne Westwood nailed it - a tricky thing to get right under a tricky circumstance. Impressive, and thoughtful!
