Friday finds

Happy Friday everyone!

Now that the sun is shining I’m feeling in the mood for a spring clean and de-clutter of the house. The cubby under the stairs is scaring me so I haven’t tackled that yet, and the living room needs a bit of a spruce up. Just been browsing the Next website and came upon these lovely Paris inspired pieces which would look fab in our living room!

J’adore the little tins! They would be great for all my sewing bits and would look great in our dresser or on the side board, and as I’m terrible at keeping plants alive this Paris twig bundle would be a great focal point on our coffee table. These muted tones really suit our colour scheme…though it’s probably not the best choice when you have a 2 year old with mucky little hands!

Here comes the sun

We have been spending some time in our garden this week (man it needs some work!). It’s so nice to get out in the fresh air and the bunnies are loving it too…well Amber is, Rupert is still being a scaredy cat and hiding in his house!

30 ways to save a pound

How many of you knew that it’s the 30th Anniversary of the £1 coin this week? I did not I must admit but the lovely chaps over at Moneysupermarket emailed me to tell me all about it and asked me to get involved in their ’30 Ways to Save £1′ challenge. I’m all for a […]

Outfit envy

OK, I have just been looking through all my latest Audrey pictures and have come to the conclusion that my daughter has an awesome wardrobe that I’m rather jealous of…clashing brights and patterns /combinations that I would never put together on myself. I have been thinking for ages that I need to inject more colour […]

DIY bead necklace

I thought I’d share with you what I finally used some of my bead stash for! So here is a simple necklace tutorial for you folks. This would be great to recycle some beads you have on a broken necklace or perhaps a couple of really special ones that you have found. You will need: […]

Friday finds

Look what I found whilst browsing the internet, so I promptly ordered it and it arrived this week. It’s the first issue of another papery addiction por moi! I ordered it direct from the website but I think you can get it in all good newsagents (as the adverts always say!) Crafty magazine is cool, it’s […]

Summer dress time!

Poor little Audrey has had a tummy bug the last few days but is now on the mend, so this is the first time I have got properly dressed in 3 days, and it’s lovely and sunny too…yippee! Thought I’d do a little outfit post to celebrate… Still wearing a jumper over my summer dress as […]

My summer wardrobe!

… just need the sun now! Went in the loft to get down a suitcase last week (when I say that I mean I sent Rob into the loft) and in said suitcase I found a bag of my summer dresses. I don’ t think I got to wear any of these last year due […]

Sewing buzz…

The Great British Sewing Bee has just started on the TV so why not pick a pattern and give it a go! I’m going through the process of clearing out lots of stuff at the moment and I’ve come to the realisation that I’m never going to have enough time to sew all the patterns […]
