{etsy update} a new little item...

Hello all,

Firstly, I do hope you're all well and had a lovely weekend - apologies for the lack of post yesterday, I received some very sad news, so blogging was the last thing on my mind. You might also find that posting in general over here for the next few days is a little sparse too, so apologies in advance for that. 

I thought I'd just share a little one with you today...I've designed this teeny tiny cake stand for your enjoyment! He's now listed over on my little Etsy shop and would make a lovely little stocking filler for the baking lover in your life! 
He's a mere 12cm in diameter, making him the ultimate stand for a little cupcake OR one of these or even a mini version of this OR a wee pile of these.
The possibilities are endless!

Enjoy...
xo.







seeing green..

..in a good way!

Our whole flat is like a little oasis at the moment and soon it'll be like a jungle, I can't wait. Last year we moved into our gorgeous apartment - our lounge and kitchen are joined and follow a huge semi-circular curve with 8 floor-to-ceiling lovely south facing windows, it's pretty lovely! 

So last summer one of my friends recommended a company called Rocket Gardens, who grow organic fruit, veg and herbs from seed and when they are big enough they sent them to you all beautifully packed. We grew lettuces, tomatoes, beans, beetroot, spinach, spring onions, chillies, all sorts...it was great but there were things we loved and wished we'd had more of and things that we didn't really like - so this year I decided to get stuck right in and grow lots of lovely plants from seed! I'm on my way to having pointed sweet peppers, bell peppers, red chillies, caribbean chillies, strawberries and 9 different types of tomatoes...it is literally super exciting times here!

Anyway, I thought I'd share some little pictures I took yesterday of all of the green I have around me right now!













Definitely recommend getting growing to everyone, who says you did a big garden to grow vegetables eh?

xo.

love this...




How amazing is this glittery nail varnish? PERFECT for summer! These photos totally don't do it justice, I couldn't get a great picture but I think these capture the essence all the same! It's from Topshop..you can get it here, but it's amazing! (I think I already said that but it is!). It comes out as thick glitter, not the usual clear polish with one or two glittery specks. I did use four coats but it dries super quick.

{update} Just opened the door to a delivery man and he said "love the nails!!". ha.

I also thought I'd share some pictures I've taken today in the lovely summer sun in my garden.







Hope everyone is also getting a chance to enjoy the sun - even if it is just an hour to enjoy lunch outside!

Lovely New Shop Appearance!

Hello all...

I've spent the last couple of days teaching myself (with the help of my lovely boyfriend) Adobe Illustrator. It's been frustrating at times but also mega fun and I kind of wonder why I've never thrown myself into it before?

My first task was to create completely new business cards - photos to follow (SO excited for them to be delivered!).

My second task was a new professional, consistent with my brand banner for the little Etsy shop and here it is...!





I'd love to hear people's thoughts :)

Hello Baby....

So I've just added a cute little baby plate to my range of ceramics, I wanted to do something along the same lines as my 'oh hello' and 'nom' plates but with a cute twist. I've done two plates, one baby blue and one baby pink...now I just need to find a baby to give them to!

I'd love to give this at a baby shower or christening - no one else would have got the same gift!

The pink baby plate will soon be added to the shop, but for now, if you'd like one - simply purchase the blue baby plate and specify in the notes you'd rather the pink one!

So here it is...

Hope you like it :)
xoxo.
