Some days...

Why is it some days are so much harder than others? But music always helps. I can't get this song out of my head. It's Laura Marling and it's called new romantic. I am quite in love with it at this moment.

It wouldn't let me put on the actual video but here is the song on Jools Holland.

Music always helps..

I am really loving noah and the whale at the moment. Particularly this song recently. I have been listening to it over and over when the dark clouds start to gather.

Pretty pillows

I needed to give a gift over the weekend and as pennies are few I decided to decorate some pillows. All you need is some plain pillow cases (I got mine for very cheap in pennys) and some pretty ribbon.

Then I wrapped them up and was ready to go.

Etsy find...

I have just come across a very pretty etsy store called Tissage. I love pearls so naturally fell in love with these pieces:

I also love this vintage style pendant. Really beautiful.

Friday at last...

I hope everyone enjoys their weekend and I also hope my cold is gone by tomorrow so I can enjoy mine.

The Owls are not what they seem...

I received a beautiful gift over the weekend and have been dying to put it together since I opened it. This is the gift:

And here is what is inside:

They are so easy to put together and turn out so well. So let me introduce you:

I will go from left to right, first we have pedro, then gordie, I had to call the biggest one Cooper and finally we have charlie.

Charlie is often found out on the balcony with her head stuck in a book. She loves to learn.

Gordie on the other hand prefers to be tucked up in his bed listening to his ipod. Especially when Cooper is practicing his guitar.

Cooper sees himself as the next Bob Dylan, sadly he is not, but bless him he tries.

The beginning....

I decided to start this blog along with my etsy store as a sort of diary of the different things I enjoy creating and a bit of background to the things that I like. I enjoy looking at pictures more than anything so I am hoping to keep this blog filled with lots of pretty photographs. Please leave me comments on your thoughts and any feedback on my little store.

In setting this up I decided to give a name and say a little something about each piece I make for the etsy store. Mostly because I spend more time with the things that I make than with anybody else and it helps to keep things light-hearted. I hope you find it as entertaining as I do giving imaginary personalities to your clothes. Here are a few of my favourites:
