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 🙂

Oshun Photo Shoot

Threads of a fairytale

At the weekend I took a big bundle of clothing I’d made along with Rain, who bravely modelled them for me in the chilly wind. Here’s a preview of a few of the new collection called Indian Summer, as they are predominantly made from Indian silks and chiffon. They will soon be for sale on my Etsy page.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve really struggled to find nice (and affordable) advent calendars in the shops this year.

Anyway, it doesn’t matter too much to me, because I’d already planned on making a rustic pretty advent calendar for my kids. (By the way – this last point is a “blogger lie” ie. I made it last year, but was too late to write a blog post about it!) This one is pretty quick and easy to make, and is really effective….
