Haven't blogged in a little while. So here's some kittens. Why not.

All via dream cats. Where my hours are wasted.

I just ordered the first printed edition of blanket magazine. Actually John did via his paypal account although he doesn't know yet, i just had to have it and besides i don't think he will mind given this spiel about the magazine from the website – "Designed to be a limited edition keepsake every detail has been meticulously considered to accentuate the tangible quality of this printed edition. With a Pantone Metallic cover, hand-stamped emboss detail, bespoke typefaces, commissioned artworks and decorative flourishes, the printed Blanket compendium is designed to be kept, treasured and referenced for years to come."  What *Designer/Hoarder could say no.

home envy.

Recently my charity shopping has gotten out of hand.

I have made friends with all the lovely people that volunteer in them and i go sometimes more than twice a week. John was making a list of all the things we have already too much of, top of the list was tins, then enamel, blankets, tea towels, kitchen utensils and table cloths.

I kind of agree but then i saw this home and collections that belongs to this lovely lady. Sorry john choose your battles i can't stop.

Washed Up

Washed Up is a photo series by Alejandro Duran who has collected rubbish that has “washed ashore from forty-two nations on six continents” onto the shores of Sian Ka’an, Mexico’s largest federally-protected reserve. Beautiful yet very sad.

bird houses

How great are these birdboxes!?

A collaboration between expert sign writer Jeff Canham and woodwork master Luke Bartels (who both definitely warrant their own post at a later date)!
You can see more pics from the creation process and the finished boxes here.

His & Hers.

John and i accidentally went out the other day in matching nautical theme outfits i wondered how long into marriage this would take. Anyway i thought it would be nice to show you some of our other matching things over the next wee while, this doesn't happen on purpose and we haven't left the house coordinating since.
These are our Anglepoise lamps they where one of the first things we ever bought with our "together money" we bought them a few weeks apart too. I like that we have matching lamps displayed in different ways.

Handmade gifts for dear friends.

A tea towel patchwork cushion for my pal Rachel. 
oh and you can see my tea towel collection here. I have used some to make this can you spot them?

And a shirt for my friend Katy. 

I would love to get some more permeant labels but for now its a typewriter and fabric stitched on. Rustic.
