I have spent the past week filling my new nest with lots of thrifty finds, a few of which require some loving. I have also been sewing curtains for the children who are sharing a room, rarely do they both fall asleep at the same time!
My favourite buy for £3.00 is this bright red hard shell suitcase lined with quilted blue/green satin, it is to become a means of transporting toys/fabric and art to different clients. It will also appear in many a photo shoot and enjoy many travels.
Also thank you Jo for the lovely card x
The past couple of days have been all about crochet, stripy cats and towelling bunnies.

Beautiful stuff from Leah Gorens etsy store.
So I am finally moved into my new home, hence why I haven’t posted all week! As of Monday next week I am trying to make something everyday as well as working on over arching projects such as exhibitions.
A slightly lengthy project will be to make a dress, and I am looking at ordering a pattern from Merchant and Mills. I love the Park Lane dress (below), and the simple chic designs. Apparently the patterns are very easy to follow and have beautiful satisfying results.
Im also loving Hey Maker since I saw there beautiful video yesterday thats campaigning for them to secure creative space in there hometown. Im sure a chord that is struck with many makers/artists and creatives alike.
The adorable Mr Often Hover and Ms Ooh la Lapin get the key to there new home tomorrow. A cosy little Victorian terrace house to cherish and call our own, my two little lapins shall be in tow and are most excited about having bunk beds and a rug with a bear on it. So to celebrate here are some interiors to make you a wee bit giddy…
A little overview of my Instagram history…
If you love craft, vintage and generally cute pretty loveliness then check out online publication 91 Magazine. I particularly love this issues guide to Hastings (just down the coast from me) a calendar of British vintage fairs and looking round the apartment of an artist in Paris.
Im declaring it OFFICIAL that pom poms are the craft of the minute. So easy to make, so cute and they can adorn anything from wrapping gifts, hair slides, slippers, garlands, cushions, hats ooh the list is endless….
When you realise you totally share your life with someone…
