grey and happy

Okay I know it's super sunny out there, but a little grey collection doesn't mean it's not still happy and sunny on the inside, especially with this set of wonderfulness.
Here are some classics and brands set to be future classics and some newies (well they are for me)
All links below; sort of in order!

transformer tuesday #7

We just love flowers whether they're in the meadow, the garden, cut, and especially made ones that you can keep for ages.

Squares of newspaper/magazines, cardboard tubes and lollipop sticks can be transformed into fun jolly paper kite flowers in their own tube pots, or as the mini1 insisted in a little 'sauce'pan, along with actual water.....they're keeping well!

We used:
- scissors
- glue
- decorative tapes
- squares of paper approx 12cm x 12cm (a mix of sizes looks good though)
- cardboard tubes, cut to chosen heights
- lollipop sticks

more mini chairs...

After a week of being back I have finally downloaded the pics taken whilst away.
May show and share more over the next few months but had to do this one....

You know how much I like chairs for the mini ones and these looked so cute out on the balcony when pottering around Bonnieux (the village I plan to move to one day!)

fab find #4

Personally I find a musical mobile a must in a nursery, however I have had problems in the past finding ones that tick all the boxes and are not run of the commercial norm!
If you too are on a search for your own little one or a gift then fear not as we have Shak-Shuka to thank for stockist this eco cowboy themed mobile, it's fab, i love it and if black is not your colour, fear not there is pink one too.

Cowboy Musical Mobile €35

i'll dry...

Back when my sister and I were little we would pick who to wash and who to dry, personally I preferred to wash, but if I was picking today I'd opt to dry, who wouldn't if they were using this gorgeous jolly teatowel I snapped up in Liberty yesterday, it's from The Mellor Ware Collection by Lianne Mellor
I love the illustration, sketchy style and British Tea theme with the cheeky woodland animals.

fab find #3 for the september equinox

It is now Autumn, the September Equinox is today 23 September 2011. There will be 12 hours of light and 12 hours of dark and a certain Autumnal chill to the air.
I could sense this event brewing last night as I had an urge for something cosy, snuggly and warm and that brings me onto our fab find #3...
Thank you to Donna Wilson for this fabulously unique water bottle, 2 designs and each design in 3 colourways. Here is the one I'd like to snuggle up with tonight...... (and maybe the boat one tomorrow!)
