shop love: the village haberdashery

Every so often my adventures on the internet make me say, ‘Oh my gosh, breathe..!’ and when I found this shop I said just that. The Village Haberdashery is, well….a haberdashery. It caters for knitters, needlepointers, embroiderers and crocheters (I would have included those who sew, but no one wants to be called a sewer…do […]

New balls please!
06_07_12

Has anyone else been watching Wimbledon? Well, if you’re British, of course you have! Usually, the spectacle of people hitting balls at each other leaves me cold but I’ve really got into it this year. Is it the display of skill? The prospect of an actual British champion? Yes and yes, but there’s also one […]

vintage shoppping

Well, everyone else seems to be doing it, so why not me? There seems to be an explosion of blog posts at the moment of people showing off their latest charity shop finds. I don’t know if it’s a coincidence, or if all this good weather we’ve been having in Britain is slowly turning us […]

I sent a tweet out earlier asking if I was the only one whose weekends were more hectic than their weekdays. I seem to have spend Saturday and Sunday living life at full throttle to the point where I could really do with a rest right now and it’s only Monday afternoon! If you think […]

shop love

I’m currently sitting on my settee staring out the window feeling slightly nauseous. I don’t deserve your sympathy – I’m just suffering from cupcake overload. After craving the killer cupcakes I made a couple weeks ago, I decided to make another batch…. and then another. I then ate cupcakes for lunch. Not good.. Anyhoo, I’m […]

baar-gain!

Me and Mr C decided (well, I decided and he agreed) that we needed a new clock for the dining room and I was out and about in Matalan buying socks for my 3 yr old (oh, the glamour) when I spied this. At a mere £6 it was too much of a bargain to leave […]

back to work beauties

This week’s beauties are inspired by some close friends of mine. They’d never been on a foreign holiday before, so a few weeks ago they took the plunge and booked a holiday to San Francisco. I’m soo jealous. I asked if they would sneak me onto the plane in their hand luggage but they (rather […]
