Could there be a more lovely way to end the blogging week than with a whole bunch of beautiful blooms and vibrant saturated colours!? I love these colours so much today this will definitely be a palette I will keep coming back to.

This weekend I don't have any plans planned as yet. Maybe a couple of lazy days would be nice, but who knows what will happen tomorrow!? I know I haven't been yarn shopping in a wee while. You know, the kind of yarn shopping where you pick up every skein of yarn at least twice just because you love how soft and squishy it feels, and spend at least an hour or more just playing with colour combinations. Usually this leaves me in a complete state of indecision and I end up leaving with nothing at all, but maybe that kind of yarn shopping isn't really about actually buying the yarn? Either way I might have just found myself a wee plan.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and that you plans all work out as planned!

Esme and Doris, hand crochet cushions by Emma Lamb

Yay, it's Friday already!
This week seems to have gone by so quickly, so much so that yesterday was gone in the blink of an eye and it wasn't until I was curled up in bed that I realised I hadn't popped in with a lovely blog post for you! Oh well, I shall make up for it today by introducing you to two new and ever so lovely ladies - Esme and Doris! Who will be making their way to my wee shop shelves in just a jiffy.

etsy favourites : simple charm

Good morning my dears!
Today I'm having a wee bit of a thing for muted rustic colours and after a spot of window shopping I have a brand new treasury collection of Etsy lovelies for you to feast your eyes on...

I'm particularly loving the warm ochre shades against those bright whites, slate blues and almost silvery greys. Also the contrast between the chunky cables of my mam's Hot Water Bottle Sweater and the delicacy of Saratops Recycled Book Pages Garland and Golly Bards Fanciful Feather Collection.

I do hope you enjoy it too?

blog crush : Horse by Cassia Beck

6 comments
Good morning!
Today I'm feeling very perky and happy. Partly because for the first time in a wee while my 'to do' list doesn't look so epic and with the exception of one or two I seem to be on top of my messages too, yay! Of course I know this won't last too long, but just now I'm enjoying the moment.

I'm also in such a good mood because I've been looking at yet more wonderful eye candy from the incredibly talented photographer and collage artist, Cassia Beck! I'm sure you have all heard of Cassia and are already aware of her sublime nostalgic style? I know I have included her inspirational work in my Monday and Friday posts many times already! But today I want to share with you some snippets of a brand new 'year' project she has embarked on called 'Horse'. The goal she has set herself is to take a daily photograph of a toy horse she played with as a child. To find out more please do check out the blog Cassia has set up to support this project.

If you love this 'Horse' project then I urge you to check out the rest of Cassia's work which you can find in her Etsy shops: Cassia Beck, Lola's Room and Violet May

Wishing you all a day that is as sweet as Cassia's photography!

colour your monday happy...

with 'snippets' of summery colours... :)

~ three red apples ~

~ nanaCompany ~

~ dottie angel ~

~ wood & wool stool ~

~ trisha brink design ~

i love 'snippets' of colour, that 'less is more' approach to adding colourful details to an otherwise blank canvas, or possibly even a white zebra ~ seriously, how cute is this wee fella... !? how wonderful would it be to see the world through a six year old's eyes, especially if that world were full of rainbow striped zebras... !?
at the very least we could arrange our bookshelves with some pretty colour co-ordination as the lovely Ingrid has done... seems like the perfect way to spend yet another rainy afternoon... :)

wishing you all a colourful Monday!

After three weeks of dull grey and almost constant rain this week I am hoping for some sunshine, for a wee bit of summer to return to Edinburgh this weekend. I'm feeling a wee bit 'cooped up' and all I want to do is get out in the open, fill my lungs with fresh air, sit on the grass picking daisies and maybe shade under some trees in the dappled sunlight.

I do not want to be rummaging through cupboards fishing out the winter woollies. I do not want the house to be filled with that 'wet dog' smell yet again. I do not want to be lighting every lovely scented candle I have just to get rid of said doggy smell. I do not want to be putting the lights on in the middle of the day because it is just so dark!

Surely this is not too much to ask, especially in July!?

I am planning a long walk along the river to see Antony Gormely's new '6 times' installation. I am hoping the sun will shine or at the very least that the rain will not rain!

I do hope you all have some lovely sunshiny (or not!) plans lined up for your weekends too?

I spotted these four lovelies co-ordinating perfectly over on my 'pattern & design' Pinterest board and thought they were too pretty not to share.

jewellery box : María Goti Joyas, Folium and El Viejo Balancin collections

I'm sticking with the black and white theme for another day because when I saw María Goti Joyas Folium Ring on the front page of Etsy last night it was love at first sight! I discovered her 'Fleur' collection a while ago but when I had a wee peek at her lovely shop last night I discovered her stunningly gorgeous 'Folium' and 'El Viejo Balancin' collections...

I am completely floored by how breathtakingly beautiful her work is! To find out more about María and her work check out her Etsy shop, website and facebook pages.

Wishing you all a wonderfully monochromatic day!
