Black & White


Happy Monday

Today I’m grateful for… 
*sunshine!
*discovering new yoghurts ~ particularly Onken cherry Biopot & Activia probiotic lemon. Yum!
*cuddles with Drummer Boy this morning
*finding my house keys (they were lost for two days!)
*my friends for making being at work easier 🙂

1. Me & dad way back when
2,3 & 4 all pictures sat on my laptop for infinity! (sources unknown)

Five Images

Five images to share with you whilst I’m away splashing about on the Thames…

1. I love the childlike innocence of this drawing. And I really should start eating kiwi again! Follow the link to Sonicos! flickr for more cute illustrations.

2. I have no idea where I found this Pooh image but I LOVE the quote.

3. Love this tree image by Kailey Lang. Pop over & check out her DeviantArt.

4. So so true. When will we learn the impact we are having on our planet? Will we ever manage to stop being such a throwaway society?

5. Me (aged 16) & my brother (approx 11/12) near the Thames Barrier in London a million zillion years ago. Check out my pink jelly shoes!

Don’t forget about the August giveaway guys!


Turquoise

What can I say, I fancied a change from pink!

Love the bowl, it would look so pretty by my bedside table, maybe storing all my jewellery & hair bands.
LOVE this illustration.
How gorgeous is this necklace? I love it!
Turquoise doughnuts? Yes please! 
Love this necklace too. The designer is a graphic designer you should check out her shop. (link below).
I really really want this apron!
Couldn’t resist posting this bunny picture!
How awesome are these leg warmers?! Gorgeous.
Loving the seventies vibe of this picture.
This is Stef. She is partly responsible for the previous picture. She & her friend Erin run a mobile vintage shop & blog. It’s my new favourite read!
Work & life in general have been quite busy busy busy these last few days so my beloved laptop has been skulking in a corner! My summer project for my Art course came through, I have all necessary components to start work on the bridal necklace I’ve got to make, Drummer Boy had another gig, we had his daughter, A, over the weekend & now I’m off for a hen-do!
All very hectic but I’ll attempt to touch base & should have some great hen-do photos for you next week!

I absolutely love this design. It’s a Common Threadz tee. i absolutely love their tee’s! If you haven’t already checked them out then you really should. You can wear a cute tee & feel virtuous whilst doing it!


I love this little image! Unfortunately I have no idea where I got it from. Toy Story is however one of my all time favourite movies!


How absolutely gorgeous is this?! I want!


I believe this is a piece from Spell & The Gypsy Collective. I absolute love their jewellery it is absolutely amazing!

This handsome fella is my dad! This is back in the early seventies, before I came along! (Love you daddy!)

I’ve had a bit of a rough day today; I feel exhausted, work was rubbish, getting home was beyond a joke, my new bread rolls fell out of their packaging & on to the floor, & I stubbed my toe on the stairs. 
Therefore it is time for bed & I will wake up to a bright shiny new day! xoxox

The Pink Post

(all favim)
I’m working most of the weekend but I hope you all have a lovely one!


*Update* Working on a WIP that’s been floating around for an age, a leather cuff. Doing a tree-inspired design which should fit both of these challenges nicely… just need to finish it before the end of July!

Grateful

I just want to take a moment to tell you how grateful I am to be with the beautiful man laying beside me. I love him so very much. He’s semi-dozing whilst I tickle his feet & read my favourite blogs. He makes me so happy & makes me laugh.

His favourite things are drumming, skateboarding, his daughter, milk before bedtime, chocolate (especially Galaxy), cuddles & being tickled. Probably not in that order! I love you Drummer Boy xxx
