It may be grey and miserable out there, and the snow we were promised never materialised, but hey, let’s not feel blue! Instead, let’s embrace this wonderful colour in all its glorious hues! Bring the blue skies of spring into your home with some of my picks…
I hate January (sorry everyone born this month) it’s grey, cold and I’m always skinto. So I dream of nice things that I might be able to afford one day to make myself happier! Yes, it makes me happy! So what?!
So here are some of my picks of niceness to perk up the grey old days this month!
I totally want to snuggle up with this gorgeous cowl by Suzana Davidovic found over on Ravelry. The Calm Cowl looks soft, comfy and has that grey tone I love.
For eating on…
Good old Anthropology never fails to have products with just the right amount of quirk to be cool. Take this Natural World Dessert Plate, £16. I would probably be tempted to put it on my wall rather than hide it away in the cupboard!
For my feet!
The Milan Court, £110, from Boden, is a sight to behold! Great for sping, and certainly able to cheer up a miserable January day! Might have to save the pennies for these though…
The Crossbody Leather Mini Bag, £45, from Oliver Bonas is really sweet, bright and I insist on cross body bags – none of this two piddly handles business!
For my wall…
Another Oliver Bonas treat (there are so many!) and one that embraces the on-trend copper colour, this wire letter is only £10 and will look superb on my dining room wall. Hope they cheer y’all up too!
I’m back working on fab craft mag, Craftseller after an eight month maternity break and I’m being super-inspired by just about everything in the forthcoming issue! They have just had a new redesign and I love the new look! Check out the Craftseller blog for lots of tips, inspiration and more! Better still, buy the mag 🙂
Ye Gads! Are you ready for a style and colour overload? I am aghast with the loveliness I have stumbled upon today whilst researching for a feature for Craftseller magazine. I write the best buys pages and was looking for summer essentials for crafters when I spotted Marie Perkin’s City Centre fabric – Oh how pretty! *see image above.
Further prodding about revealed Print and Pattern blog’s latest post on Brighton-based Sukie’s bloomin lovely postcard designs (below). As I am currently doing up the nursery for baby number two (due in August!) I think this would make a splendid addition!
Oh go on, one more….this foxy treat is by another home-grown talent called Scion – they are fabric desginers and I really like this little fellow!
How pretty is this dress? I have the perfect red shoes to go with it too – though with this miserable summer, God knows when I would be able to wear it!
It comes from Prodigy Red and costs a very respectable £19! I spotted it on the fabulous MyStreetChic.com (I was responsible for the hair and make-up for their summer fashion shoot) but if you haven’t checked them out before – get over there! They seem to unearth such great items. Love them!
