date night...

dinner is better when it is eaten on the floor, movies are better when you watch them from your 'cubby' and everything is better with fairy lights :)

a bit flat...

hello lovely people...

i have been absent. im sorry. i have been in a bit of a funk lately - you know those weeks where you just don't feel like yourself? well, im into my third week like that in a row. i think it is partly because i lost my camera charger and BOTH my camera batteries are flat so i haven't been able to take any photos. and partly because i spend so much time at work (grrr). and partly because i haven't been running in a couple of weeks.

BUT... i found my camera charger on the weekend, have holidays in less than three weeks and am leaving work early tomorrow to go for a run. it really is the little things that make a big difference :)

a shoe girl?

i love them. i think it's the green.

i think these shoes and i could be really happy together...

(unfortunately, i do not love the price tag)

p.s - with the combination of blogger having a tantrum over the weekend and my still missing camera charger, posts might be a little light on until i track down a spare battery or a new camera :)

four happy things on friday

...after a short break, 'four happy things on friday' is back :)

One of my resolutions for this year was to be more intentional - with my relationships, with my time and with my focus. In an effort to continue this, I will post four photos from my week of things or moments that have made me happy. I feel like I sometimes miss out on joy just because I'm not looking. Here's to changing that!

 a vintage floor lamp, a fresh and simple lunch, the loveliest mail from the loveliest lady, creating

Feel free to join in! Just leave a comment and I will pop over to see your happy things this friday...

attention vintage sheet lover and swappers.

after many hours of sorting, counting and lusting after fabrics your FQs are winging their way back to you. I am having to post them in stages because they don't all fit in my car. the last phase will be posted tomorrow!

Some of you should be getting some lovely parcels in the mail before the end of the week!

just want to say a BIG thank you to those of you who included a handwritten note and a little something extra... it was not expected but definitely appreciated!!!

There were a few FQs that have been returned to some of you because they were dirty or unsuitable for the swap... i do hope that this is not a problem! I have been unable to check each and every FQ for holes or marks but i am counting on people only sending something that they would be willing to receive...

i do REALLY hope that you are all happy with what is returned to you. please email me if you have any problems or questions! and please let me know any posts you do about what you have received and created with you new vintage FQs!

happy crafting :)

i haven't been able to stop thinking about this asos skirt ever since i saw it over at a cup of jo. if only the hubby and i hadn't just done up a new budget on the weekend... does the fact that asos have free worldwide shipping justify it?


i recently discovered instagram on my iphone.
it makes taking photos so much fun.

scenes from the weekend...

flowers from my mother-in-laws garden, apple pancakes, granny blanket weather, crafting with vintage maps, a fabulous new phone from 'can you keep a secret' and a LOT of vintage sheet FQ's

why can't every weekend be a long weekend??
