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!

Styling cream and khaki and enjoying a warm day!
October 16, 2017
Khaki green is another regular colour that crops up in most autumn fashion style editorials in magazines at this time of year – some years more than most. I’ll admit, it doesn’t seem to be one of the major must-be-seen-in colours of fall 2017, but none-the-less I love it! It’s almost a neutral, and seems to go with every other colour in my wardrobe, except perhaps red and grey. And pale blue. Ok, so maybe not every colour, but quite a lot! It goes perfectly with dusky pink (of which I own a fair few items), black, and every shade of brown from dark chocolate to pale cream. On this occasion, I chose cream….

Styling a simple blue dress – summer fashion.
August 4, 2017
As you can tell, these photos were taken on a warm day in spring, back when the bluebells were out in full force; but this is still an outfit I’m wearing four months later, so I thought I’d do some catching up as I haven’t written so many fashion blog posts recently. This was actually an impromptu photo-shoot as we were out hunting for bright yellow rape-seed oil flower fields. We always see them next to the road when we’re not looking for them, but when we were it took us hours! We saw the dappled light shining through the trees and thought we’d hop out the car and take some photos there just in case we never found what we were looking for….

Styling khaki check / tartan for spring – an Outlander outfit
May 14, 2019
Have you seen the Starz Outlander series on telly? Or read the books by Diana Gabaldon? Chris and I have watched the four series through twice, and have begun to listen to the audio books in the car on our little jaunts around the country! When a clothing catalogue from the company EMP came through the door last November and I was browsing through for Christmas presents for the kids, I literally squealed in delight when I saw a page full of official Outlander clothing!….
