Mothers Day.....

I bought this lovely print for my Mum for Mothers Day. Its from the bestest online shop Hannah Zakari and its by Ashley G

Its very apt for me and her for obvious reasons and when I saw it I had to buy it!

When I was little we used to have this big print on the wall in our house and we used to turn it upside down to see how long it was before Mum noticed. There is something about this print that reminds me of that print. I think this one will stay the right way up these days as me and my two brothers no longer live/wreak havoc in M&P's house.

I'm sure she will love it!

PS- I am working on some other styles to sit with other collections so watch this space.

My petit lapin!

I blogged a little while ago about this cute little rabbit from Mr Clement that I had to have! Well here he is! As I said he was going to sit on the top of our awesome new £25 sideboard from a charity shop. Since we moved house we have decided to become a bit more Womble like and get thrifted bits and pieces. So here is my little rabbit and he is in good company. There's a little gocco print from Apak, a super cool print from Peskimo and an Ikea lamp (???!!!)
The best thing about our new 60's sideboard is that when you open the middle cupboard it smells a bit boozy. It was for sure the spirits cupboard in its old home mmmmmmm!

We also have some awesome new jewellery on its way to the shop. Hopefully the new rings I have in the pipeline will be ready this week. I am very excited about these and will be well worth waiting for.

Blushing Apple Pouch project....

I finally got round to taking a (shitty) picture of the project I did for "Making Stuff For Kids" I did a little pouch with a felt apple on the front. The apple is based on the little fella (above) that can be seen on the badges I put on everything! I gave him some bigger eyes though. They were easier to cut out than the tiny little white ones!

I have to have one!

Well, the weekend is over and we have another week ahead. I have a couple of orders I need to do today and fabric to order and just you know, worky things. One of the things I really have to do today is order one of these little fellas! How cute is this rabbit.
UPDATE: just placed the order.
I first spotted them on Schmancy Toys and fell in love! We have just bought an amazingly cool 60's sideboard for £25 from a charity shop for our house and I am looking for things to stand on top. My lovely little Lapin will be up there for sure.
