I love flickr because...... matter what it is your into you can find something a little bit amazing on flickr to inspire you

Amazing photostream from a lady who makes everything from these gorgeous looking dollies, to slippers, and then gorgeous sumptious pots and paperwork ! So inspiring, so jealous ! Find here photostream here, and blog here .

To just plain gorgeous photography, i love the warmth and texture of this photo soo much, iv just found the lady who took it has a photostream here and runs an online workshop, sqeee going ot look into what it involves !

Heatwave Wednesday

Check out my super cool new apron ! And what do you do when you have a new apron..... break it in !
So we whipped up a batch of sponge cakes, louie in the rs and flo generously helping with the mixing ;) And while we waited for them to do their thing went for a wander in the garden, meaning that we almost forgot about them !
I think this is how you make a lucky apron, they came out lovely and even look like butterflies for the most part rather than erupting volcano cakes !
Another pic to show how gorgeously snuggle rds can be, and a good indication of my reaction when oh said he didnt want to try it out as it looked girlie ;)
Were trying out a new sling this week, having been ringsling impaired for the whole time flos been around i decided to give them another chance and am SO glad i did as Louie seems to find them super comfy and with a littley theyre easy peasy to get comfy, so louie got to cook with us too :)

Time for tea.

I point blank refuse to believe that any day that starts with a cup of tea this pretty can end up badly. I found these teacups in a chairty shop for £2 for the set of 4 and they were far to adorable to say no to. Theyve been used mostly for jelly at 2 friends tea parties, but i have a feeling could become candles in the not too distant future !

Not a crafty day here today, but productive none the less, iv found theres very little more satisfying than wandering down to the end of the garden

and seeing your vegetables growing. This coming from a lady who is a danger to potplants and shrubs alike, somehow our vege's this year are not only surviving but flourishing, i blame the handywork of one little miss greenfingers ! Looks like chutneys and jams for this years christmas pressies are go go GO ! Shall start saving jars !

Found a new crafty website today and have picked out 2 or 3 things to get busy on, this gorgeous girls pillowcase dress is a MUST, and as it only fits upto 18 months i better get craking asap i think if i want to make one wearable by little chunkette !

Id love to have a try at the matching mens shirt-to womens dress version but something tells me im getting a little ahead of myself lol

Photo/Geek Sheek Heaven

Im heavy into photography at the minute, and that coupled with my love of all that is retro, coming across this website was like hitting the jackpot for me. Sometimes you shouldnt ask why you should just sit back, flick through and chuckle about the things people do in the name of lego :)

Am i getting married ?

No, but that doesnt mean i cant swoon at a gorgeous vintage frock on a sunday evening.
Im in a very girly mood tonight having spent half the night scouring through old bookmarks and old photos for the blog and coming across a few forgottern treasures.
Vintage Textiles is my new favourite haunt, it was the very first thing i put onto my favourites list when i got this computer a few years ago and its sat unlooked at for far too long until tonight ! Alot of it is way out of my price range but i can loose myself looking through the pages.

The Memory Box

A history of craftyness.
First she sewed shoes
Then she made babies
Next she took photos
After she crocheted
Later........... she drank tea and made a blog
So here i am at chapter five in the creative journal that is my life.
Im just going to use this blog as a space to fill with all that inspires me and the outcomes of that inspiration whether it be a particular photo i want to try and recreate or another blog that iv found to follow or an interesting looking leaf weve found on our wanderings, beware the randomness that will proceed :)
