French Films

As my lovely friend has been blogging about french films recently which reminded me of one I watched recently. It's called Il ya longtemps que je t'aime (I've loved you so long). It's really beautiful but also heartbreaking. Well worth a watch. Kristen Scott Thomas is brilliant.

I must also apologise for my lack of blogging recently. My only excuse is that there is simply not enough hours in the day. 24 is just not enough.

The xx

I started listening to the xx a while back and then forgot about them for a while for some reason. A friend sent me this link today which reminded me how much I like them. Check out the video underneath the article. I really like it, and for anybody who can spare another few minutes I also really like this song of theirs.

P.s. Can I also apologise for my lack of shop updates due to my attempting to move flat at the moment. I should be up and running again shortly so stay tuned.

Before christmas I was one of the lucky people to have a stall at the craftacular market run by bust magazine in London. I got to meet lots of people in the craft business but one lady in particular was very kind and gave me lots of helpful tips as I was only starting out and she has been up and running for a while. Visit her shop here and her blog here where she kindly mentioned my new etsy store. Thanks Emma.

She makes the prettiest bags and cushions which I just had to share.

But the most exciting part in my opinion is that she is now selling her printed fabric by the metre, so if you like her prints and enjoy making things yourself this is the solution. Here are two of my favourites:

An education...

I watched An Education for the first time last night, I know it has been out a while but what can I say I don't get out much!

Naturally I am now completely in love with Carey Mulligan. Watch it if you haven't already. She's a beauty.

Delicious thoughts...

I'm having one of those days where I feel hungry all day, no matter how much I eat. My mind has been filled with thoughts of delicious deserts. I have a terrible sweet tooth so when I say hungry I don't mean for a nice bowl of pasta I mean for cake. Delicious cake.

Ever feel creatively lost, there something missing from the things you have been creating and you can't quite put your finger on what it is. Then it hits you and you wonder should you take a risk and take things in a slightly different direction or continue with how things are going? If it's not broke and all that...

Here's a song I very much like by Elliott Smith

Old favourites...

I love music. There is always music for every mood you could possibly be feeling, but there are certain songs to which I always return. Long-term loves. Cat Power's 'maybe not' is one of those songs for me. Have a listen.

Spring finally?

Is it safe to say that spring is here yet? I was just thinking it about two weeks ago and then it snowed!! Well it arrived to my flat this week in the form of a beautiful bunch of flowers. Very pretty.

Happy Easter
