I still haven’t worked out who I want to be or what I want to do when I grow up, so on this blog please join me while I try and work it out while keeping child-like creativity alive!  Find home and fashion inspiration; travel and days out; photography, writing and more. Have fun looking around 🙂

Distracted by Indian Silk

I LOVE e-bay! I know I should be concentrating on promoting the Pirate Collection for Oshun, but I couldn’t resist this bargain bundle of Indian clothing. They are all damaged in some way or another, but perfect for transforming into new beautiful clothes.

The beading on some of them is just exquisite. I am already getting ahead of myself and am now planning a Fairy collection for mid summer using all the delicate silks and cottons. I took advantage of this lovely weather we’re having and hand washed (with the help of Jude) all 36 items so they are ready to go. The sun glinting on the beads looked lovely, so I took a couple of photos.

Making a flower fairy dress for Threads of a Fairytale
September 6, 2018
I haven’t shared my work for Threads of a Fairytale here for a while, so I thought it was time I changed that! I’m also planning on blogging more often and linking more blogs with videos on my YouTube channel. There’s something about September that feels like a new year isn’t there? Even though this is the first autumn neither of our kids are starting a new term! So this dress is perfect for princess flower fairies off to the ball or alternative brides who would like to wear pink on their wedding day…..
long sleeved red dress
The red Christmas party dress
December 23, 2017
Red is the colour of choice for this season anyway, so what better time of year than Christmas to embrace the fashion? I bought this red dress from the Jameela Jamil collection at Simply Be back in spring, but sadly the event I bought it for was cancelled, and I’ve been waiting for the opportune time to fetch it out of my wardrobe! Christmas is practically upon us, and I think this red dress could not be more perfect for the celebrations! Pillar-box red is a colour that suits everyone, so don’t be a wallflower in black this holiday – get out the dress you know you’ve been wanting to wear!….
