Vintage jumpsuit restyle
black culottes and a breton top edenfound

Buyer’s remorse. It’s a killer. It always sneaks up on you when you least expect it. My last bout of regret came after I bought a vintage jumpsuit on eBay. It looked amazing on the lady in the picture. Cute, functional and sassy all at once, I knew that it would be a key piece […]

1 kimono, 2 ways
kimono jacket - edenfound

Call me stubborn, but I refuse to pay a lot of money for something if I can make it myself. Kimono jackets are everywhere at the moment and the ones that caught my eye were priced upwards of £40. I was convinced I could make one for a lot less. There are lots of tutorials […]

diy: garden chandelier
2014_30_06c

You may have spotted in this post the garden chandelier that I had made for the Princess Party. It was really simple to make and it was one of those crafts that I kinda made up as I went along. I completed it over the course of a couple days and in total it took […]

Take One Challenge Update
2014_01_04c

Here’s a little update for my Take One Jumper Challenge. I gave myself four weeks to revamp an old tired jumper and turn it into something beautiful. This is the jumper I chose. As you can see, it does a good job of keeping me warm, but it’s not very pretty. It took me ages […]

diy: tartan skirt
2014_13_02b

I’ve been wanting to rock the tartan trend for a while now, but every skirt I’ve found has been a little, well….short. I’m 5ft 9in, 35 years old and live in Yorkshire. Not a good combination for exposing too much leg I’m afraid. However, I spotted this gem in my local charity shop at the […]

shop love: the painted house
2014_02_05b

At this time of year thoughts often drift to decorating and what can be done to change the rooms we live in. I think it ‘s because there’s so little to entertain us in our gardens (especially in Britain  – please, no more rain…) our thoughts drift to how we can beautify our interiors. I’ve […]
