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 🙂

Keeping warm

It’s cold at the moment isn’t it?!

Our central heating is run by a wood-fired Rayburn. We thought this was a good idea at the time – eco friendly and avoids the rising price of oil; however, our chimney is solid with tar, probably due to the torrential rain that we’ve had practically every day since before Christmas. So far two chimney sweeps have been unable to unblock it and we haven’t had any heating for two weeks. What I need is a lovely warm shawl to keep me warm.

(NB this post has since been edited as all the shawls I originally listed are no longer available. I’ll definitely do an updated version soon.)

Weekly Wardrobe – Tweed steampunk
January 16, 2017
We were invited to visit the home of the Gibbs family at Tyntesfield Manor in the year 1891. (It was a National Trust event.) Of course, we took the opportunity to go for a theme with our outfits that day! I didn’t have much in the way of late Victorian clothing, so I decided to go for a bit of a steampunk look instead. It was an early start to ensure we could get tickets into the house, so in the hour we had to wait our turn, it was the perfect opportunity to wonder the grounds and take photos….
Weekly Wardrobe – a vintage velvet dress
November 28, 2016
It was the wonderful Glastonbury Frost Fayre on Saturday so I wanted to wear something a little bit Christmassy. A purple velvet dress fitted the bill, so that’s what I went with! I bought it from ebay a few years ago when I was invited to a friend’s 1940s party, and I thought this one looked like it matched the theme. The collar, length and style are very 1940’s, but it’s from C&A’s so it’s probably actually from the 1980s….
