'Memories in pattern and colour'

Tag Archives: tea cup


A pretty, old tea/chocolate cup made a beautiful planter for one of my favourite plants, Hyacinths! I found this cup and saucer a good while back, but enjoyed planning ahead and I got it planted up ahead of time and gave this to mum on mothers day. She loved it 🙂


Today in the post 3 filters came for my  bridge camera, pretty exciting considering I have wanted some for so long! I finally got around to getting some as I wanted a few for taking pictures at my sisters coming wedding (don’t worry we are also getting profs in!). I got a soft focus one, and 4 point star and a warming filter. So far my pictures have been pretty shoddy with them, especially the soft focus one as I am not sure I really like the blurred effect, but I have not been taking portraits which I know would be the most appropriate use…maybe it will be more handy on the wedding day itself, but the loss of detail does concern me.  The other two seem quite nice. I am surprised how subtle the effects are and to be honest I hoped maybe the difference in the picture quality would be more startling, but this may just take some getting used to. Anyways my main reason for posting about this is I would love any help for getting the most out of these filters. Any tips?


Thrifty Thursday...DIY sugar cubes

This week im feeling romantic…Its 9 days until my sister gets married! It’s all very exciting and nerve-wracking!
I just recently held her a vintage-ish tea party for her hen do, I promise I will share some pics soon, although I will pre warn you now I didn’t have time to take many as I had so much to do.

To be honest I cheated when I came to sugar cubes on the day and just bought a small box from Tesco’s, having never bought sugar cubes before this in itself was quite exciting…yes I really did find buying sugar cubes exciting, oh dear! But had I of seen this before, it could have been a lovely addition to the table!

What could be sweeter than a little bit of love in you tea?!

hand made sugar cubes,
