Snowdrop Inspiration

I was absolutely delighted to find a snow-drop flowering in my garden the other day. Snowdrops definitely rank in my top 5 favourite flowers. There was a garden I used to walk past on my way home from primary school, and it always had a blanket of snow-drops beneath a group of fir trees. They enchanted me. Once, I picked one and I felt guilty about it ever since! Here’s some snow-drop inspired handmade clothing and jewellery….

When we moved here, I spent the first 3 years trying to grow snow-drops. I planted 150 bulbs one year and 200 in the green the following year and another 100 the year after that (incase the first batch were a dud.) I got 10 flowers once; 5 the next year and none at all last year, and 1 this year! I’m not going to give up!

I have plans for the end of the garden and I’m going to try again in pots or a barrel or something.

To keep me inspired, I found some snow-drop related fashion.

I love this t-shirt by Limeyts. Check out her other printed designs too – There are lots of quirky and cute animal pictures as well as wildlife designs like this one.

I also found these snowdrop earrings by the wonderfully titled LadybirdAndLeaf. Each item of jewellery is carefully made in polymer clay and hand painted to look very life-like. Have a look at her butterflies and moths too.

Lastly, here’s a fairy snow-drop skirt made by me for Oshun. It took hours quilting all those tatters together!

Weekly Wardrobe – Dressing for out in the cold!
December 5, 2016
On Saturday I went to watch the Reindeer parade through Wells High Street, and it was just as cold as I thought it would be! The sun was shining though, so it was a really nice day for it and so many people turned out to watch. There was also carol singing and market stalls, and mistletoe for sale, and lovely Christmassy things like that – if you’d like to see it, please look at my Vlogmas Day 4 video on You Tube! Anyway, my outfit was based around the fact that I can’t seem to wear my red coat with my hat, without the hat sliding up to the top of my head and looking ridiculous. Does this happen to anyone else? So, as the icy wind meant that a hat was essential for me, I decided to wear my shawl instead…..

How to style a floral shirt dress; perfect spring fashion
May 29, 2018
I don’t know about you, but as we marched into April I had so had enough of winter! I was desperate to move away from my dark coloured winter wardrobe and wear some florals. I only went in Primark to buy a cheap skin-coloured bra as we were away in the camper and I’d forgotten to pack one! But on my way to the till I spotted this floral shirt dress that I just picked up (along with a mustard dress, coming to the style inspo section on the blog soon!) and took it with me….
