It was a beautiful afternoon full of laughter, cake and baby clothes galore! If you have an upcoming party you'd like some creative decor ideas for we'd love to hear from you!

I made it to have a spine of about 1 … Continue reading Gift idea – Letter Writing Kit
We recently helped the lovely Nicky & Oliver with their beautiful barn wedding. The venue looked stunning, we loved all their great ideas they chose - my favourite was their table numbers.

I've been busy with a few homemade projects this week. My latest crafty adventure... Homemade hopscotch! Do you remember playing that game in the playground?!

I was inspired by the http://www.tipjunkie.com blog (which … Continue reading Homemade hopscotch – for playing inside 🙂
If you love travelling this one's for you - a crafty way to capture all the holidays you've treated yourself to in a glance!

Loving our new Love Heart Garland 🙂 We bought a variety of material, cut out heart shapes, sewed around the edge, leaving a 2cm gap at the top and filled with stuffing.

I'm not sure how I inherited such a ghastly and boring piece of furniture but I know a lil' bitta' love and care usually leads to miracles 🙂 So I researched around on google for the type of shabby look I wanted and then it happened... I turned my garden into a painters nightmare... Paint … Continue reading Shabby chic dresser makeover
I haven't been this happy to be woken up early on a Saturday morning by the door bell... I raced downstairs and slightly overwhelmed the postman with the sight which greeted him... Bed hair, no make up and rather excitable in nature! There was no way I would miss him! He handed over the goods … Continue reading Postman scores again!
The latest vintage order we're hard at work at, is our hessian bow chair tie backs. I'm totally in love with these!

I folded the mini envelopes … Continue reading 6 reasons why I love you
I received a cute handmade card yesterday. No matter how slushy the words are in a shop bought card, a handmade card always expresses more love. This card in particular was so simple, there were 4 blocks of patterned paper with little slogans on stickers on each one... Adorable!
During our recent sports day birthday party, I bought bottles of water for everyone. To add that homemade feel I thought I'd re-label all the bottles with something I'd make myself. So what's better than rubber stamps and my decorative washi tape! I took off all the original labels, cut up strips of A4 sticky … Continue reading Personalised beverages
