Raindrops On Roses & Whiskers On Kittens...
... Here are a few of my favourite things...
I hope you are all having a lovely weekend! Mine has been fairly relaxed which has been lovely! I got some chores and errands done, which is nice to tick off my list!
I have also been very naughty and broken one of my resolutions (which you can read here) and have bought myself some lovely things! I just couldn't resist and none of them were particular expensive! But they do add up! Oh well I will console myself with their prettiness!
|Four Little Cake Forks All In A Row!|
Ooooo this picture makes me want to squeal! I have been trying to find vintage cake forks for ages! I have such a lovely collection of china and always serve cake, but have never had any cake forks to eat them with! In the end I found these (non-vintage) pretty little things in a local homeware shop! Eeeeek!
Then today we made a trip to IKEA and I treated myself to these beauties...
|Beautiful Rosali & Stripey Fabrics!|
I CANNOT wait to use these beautiful fabrics for something! It will have to be a special project - all for myself - as I love them just too much to give away! Any suggestions!?
Buying these fabrics and seeing their awesomeness made me need to organise my fabrics a la Sew Ray Me who inspired me to pile them all up neatly on display!
Whilst in IKEA I also picked up these lovely Christmas themed cupcake cases - they were reduced to 99p so I will stash them away until next year!
Although I am still looking for a lovely glass jar to use inspiration from the lovely Gem to show off all my lovely cupcake cases! No luck so far!
I have also taken inspiration from another lovely Gem who used little jars for storing little baking bits! Although in my case I have raided my collection of jars to organise all my buttons - colour coded - into pretty little jars!
You might have noticed above that they have taken their place next to the pretty pile of fabrics - oooo it almost looks like and actual sewing area, which makes me smile - alot!
The movement of fabric meant that I needed a new place for all my lovely wool. So when I saw this pretty basket when I popped to TIGER today I had to get it!
Doesn't it look so homely, filled with wool! This is also next to my basket of fabric scraps and the buttons in jars, and the pile of pretty fabric! Oh it looks so lovely!
Whilst in TIGER I also happened upon this beaut! It's a huge wooden peg!
|A Steal At Only £1|
I plan to use the Cath Kidston wallpaper samples I got a long time ago, to cover it and then use it to hold our post on a door or wall! I will show you all when it is done!
Lastly, I have some lovely blooms which have really been brightening my days!
Remember that little plant I bought from Fortnum & Mason? (here) Well just look at it now!
And on Thursday, my lovely work colleague from my old job came round for dinner and brought me these beautiful roses!
|My Favourite! Pretty Pink Rosies!|
And these sweet little bulbs have also been blooming! I found them looking forlorn on a little shelf in Tesco (reduced to only £1.55) and had to bring them home to care for them. And they are thriving!
*Phew* That felt like a long post!
But full of beauty and prettiness and cheer!
Just what I needed before another long week!
