Please excuse the poor quality of this photo, this is the first post I have made using my smart phone, but as you can see the camera is shoddy! But ah well, I hope to do more picture posts whilst on the move in the future. Although I certainly think you can’t beat a proper camera and a good sit down at the computer! This print cheered me up today, I found it in Dorothy Perkins on the sale rail, whilst desperately looking for some jeans. As I am sure you know looking for jeans can be tiring and not always fruitful, so to find this joyful little ditty print made me smile, and took my denim blues away!

December is creeping up on us pretty quick, and pretty soon it will be Crimbo, which means one thing. Money is tight!

Sooooo, us ladies always like a hand  bag or two and so this Wednesday I am finding vintage bags for under £15! They could be a sneaky cheap pre Christmas treat for you, or a bargain gift for a loved one.

So here are my top picks, I love them all, but the first and the last are my favourites! I love them!

As the title suggests this weeks Wednesday wishes is centered around some great fabric prints I found this week in the shop named White Stuff. I don’t normally look in this shop and only popped in for a peep whilst waiting to meet a friend for lunch.

To my surprise the shop was a wonderful array of colour, lovely deep colours that really warm the soul. And the window display was a really cute take on a woodland scene with wooden logs, mushrooms and trees made from cardboard.In the trees hung oversized felt biscuits…odd but oh so cute! I wish I had got a picture to show you all!

For a  high street store I rather enjoyed the boutique feel of the shop, Inside there were even pot plants, really quite lovely! The website is just as charming, do take a peep!

The dress has no great age, and pretty much modern, but I just wanted to share this lovely fabric design. The dress does not fit me and im half tempted to chop it about to make it fit/something from it…Just not sure what I could make from it! any ideas?
