This one is a retro must have. It would make a great gift for a home loving retro guy…Im right now trying to convince myself my man would not think it too weird if I bought him a cushion for christmas. Would that be weird?! At £5.99 this one is hard to resist.

Thrifty Thursday: Repurposed wooden pallet bookcase

 

I love the rawness of this weeks post. It’s such a simple idea which needs very little work, and it doesn’t even need hanging up! Just prop it up against a wall, so its easy to move when you get bored with your room layout!

A word of warning though if you have youngsters, make sure there are no splinters, other wise it could be OUCH!


This weeks Wednesday is wish is a weird one. I’ve literally only just stumbled across this jewellery designer, as I was researching various materials to make some jewellery with . I’ve been feeling really fidgety recently, and a little lost on the creative front, so I am just pondering on the world of jewellery making (any help and suggestions would be lovely!). And voila, this lady’s work caught my eye.

It’s the imagination of it that I really admire, I think you either love this work or hate it.  It’s slightly creepy, but at the same time playful which is the main appeal for me!  The workman ship is very clearly high on these pieces too, altogether I think they are fascinating and wonderful!

Like dog’s? Like Vintage? Then hopefully you will love this treasury list!


It seems an absolute age since I held my sisters vintage inspired hen party. But as promised here are some of the photos of some of the little details of the special day. I made each hen a heart shaped blackboard necklace, of which they could decorate with their own chalk pen. You can buy blank wooden hearts on ebay, and a good quality chalk board paint at good DIY stores if you want to make these yourself!

I also made some drink charms, plenty of bunting, and a notice board (with the help of my best friend!!) for everyone to leave a message on in the form of vintage postcard. We played Mr & Mrs, and pin the kiss on David Beckham, whilst we ate copious amounts of lovely food brought by each of the girls.

It was an amazing afternoon, and the evening was just a lovely as we met up with the Men and went for drinks in a local bar.

Please do excuse some very rushed photography, as i barely had time to take perfect pics as frankly we were having way too much fun to be worrying about photography! Which is how any special day should be 😀
