Poppy Profusion

I bought a print of Simon Fairless's Poppy Profusion today to go in the bathroom. Isn't it gorgeous! I cant decide whether to make a frame for it or just give in and buy one, perhaps there's an old frame in the loft that I can rejuvenate...

Bathroom Bunting

Today i've been making bunting to hang around a ceiling beam in the bathroom which is in the middle of being redecorated, easy to do but actually quite time consuming! You'll see it in all its beauty when   the bathroom is finished :) xox

New Project

I got this beauty from eBay, and cant wait to start restoring it. It still rides well, i think a paint job and some new tyres will have it looking adorable. Its a Philips 1953, that's nearly 60 years old! 

Bennie was determined to photobomb this shot, so I wont let her efforts go to waste:

Today's owl has hopped in an envelope and will be on its way in the post tomorrow, but whom is it being sent to?! (its a surprise). Also I made a pretty bracelet this evening. I should get a virus more often, i seem to get more done!

Sweet Owl Softy

I've come down with a dizziness virus, and was determined not to waste the day so i hand stitched this sweetie. I promise i wont make another owl next time, but they're such easy shapes! xox

Halloween Halloween!

So what started being a happy pumpkin turned into the spitting image of the Annoying Orange, but I think they look pretty good! I cant wait to light the candles in them this evening, i'm actually tempted to buy a load more and make a pumpkin family in my front garden. Too Much? Alright, i'll just stick with two then ;).

Owl Birthday Invitations

I'm planning early for my Birthday this year. The theme is a traditional kids party (with a few exceptions), so these owls are off in the post today to my favourite people. I put a party blower with the details wrapped around them in the envelope to bring along (although its probably asking a bit much for them not to get lost between now and December).
