making everyday beautiful : sapphire

Good morning my blog buddies, I hope you all had a fantastic weekend!? After charging about the lake district last weekend, this weekend was a much more lazy affair with lots of TV (did you watch the Eurovision Song Contest!?), films (got to watch The World's End for the first time... not my fave from Simon Pegg and Nick Frost) and ate plenty of chocolate (of course!) while working on a couple of knit and crochet projects that I will tell you more about soon. But right now lets get onto today's making everyday beautiful picks...

In a bid to move away from the putty pink coloured florals of the last couple of weeks (here and here) I've gone with my other colour crush of the moment as inspiration for today's collection - gorgeous sapphire blues! I adore the intensity of this colour, it's so bold, strong and energetic. I don't mean energetic in a manic 'Let's get this shit done!' kind of way, I get more of a calm and determined vibe from it as in Alison's ocean image and Svenja's delicate tendril plant growing and reaching out. Very inspiring!

Emma, x

making everyday beautiful : putty tones

emma lamb

Hello my blog buddies! Did you all have a great weekend and get to make the most of the May day holiday? The first Monday in May is always a 'bank holiday' here in the UK and lots of folk get a day off work. Does this happen in your country too or do you celebrate actual May day on May 1st? We're just back from a few days in the Lake District celebrating a birthday and visiting family. I took soooooo many photos that will take me a few days to sort through, some of which I think you will love just as much as I do so I'll share a few of the best here after those few days. Righty-ho, today's picks from making everyday beautiful...

Déjà vu!? I know, I know this floral collection does look a lot like last week's picks but just a little more 'putty' coloured. Either my eye is stuck on these colours right now or you guys are loving the vintage floral look, maybe a combination of both? Which ever it is doesn't really matter because they are gorgeous images that make for a beautiful collection! Notice those fresh green leafy tones with the putty pinks and beige colours? I love that combo today!

Good morning blog buddies! Thank you for all your lovely comments and entries for the My Rag Doll book giveaway, I'm absolutely loving reading about all your childhood dolls! How you named them, who made them for you, what you loved about them most of all and especially that some of you still have your little friends today. So sweet! The giveaway will be open right through this week so if you haven't already you still have lots of time to tell me about your favourite childhood doll. Now onto today's making everyday beautiful picks...

After the rush of bunnies and eggs making everyday beautiful is looking very floral right now. The world is so full of beautiful petals and we have such a love affair with the each spring. Tulips & daffodils, lavender & lilac, dandelions & daisies and every kind of pink blossom you could hope for! Today I wanted to find a slightly different angle on the usual spring colours, an unexpected twist on those pretty pinks. It took a wee bit of searching and experimenting but I eventually pulled together this pink, grey, nude and lovely pinky / putty brown combination. Kind of earthy but delicate, don't you think?

making everyday beautiful : the egg hunt!

emma lamb

Happy Monday my lovelies! Are you looking forward to the Easter break this weekend? I'll not dance around the bush here, I am so looking forward to the chocolate! Yesterday I am sure I heard a little tinkle of a bell and could have sworn I saw a flash gold amongst the shelves. Could it be that the bunnies are already here!? Eeep! Let's find out...

Today's making everyday beautiful picks are all about the hunt - the egg hunt, the bunny hunt, the chocolate hunt! How adorable are Silvia Raga's bunnies!? Hop on over to her beautiful blog for a super easy how to for these and a cute wee bunny garland. Both are perfect little projects to keep your wee ones busy over the half term holidays. Hold on a second, I can hear that tinkling again...

making everyday beautiful : fabric love

emma lamb

Hello my blog buddies and happy Tuesday to you all! It has been a crazy couple of days here in my world...

Yesterday there was a mini disaster here that took the whole day to resolve so I couldn't get to blogging and whatnot. It seems we had been flooding the property below us the whole weekend but only found out on Monday morning! Yet more bad plumbing hidden under our floorboards which took a whole afternoon and a lot of mess to find and fix after spending the whole morning just trying to find a plumber that would come out the same day - ugh! Thankfully though the problems were found and fixed and things don't look too bad from here after a big clean up, although there is a lot of damp between our floorboards and the ceiling below. It will take weeks to dry out, maybe longer? But thankfully the weather is getting milder and today the sun has been shining so that should help things along a wee bit.

One small thing that I'm very grateful for is that it is not someones home below us, that would have been so heartbreaking! Plus the lovely people who are below have been very understanding. All day I did what I could to keep them informed on what was happening, why it was happening and how it was being fixed which they seemed to appreciate hugely. I had a good chat with the plumber who said that in these situations communication is key and how he has seen similar situations turn very ugly because of a lack of communication and responsibility. He's totally right, good communication makes these things go much smoother as it builds trust. Two things you definitely need to work on when you are surrounded by so many neighbours! So yes, if anyone in Edinburgh is ever looking for a good plumber I now know a good man I can recommend for you!

Righty-ho then, time to think about something a lot more lovely and pretty...

With today's picks from making everyday beautiful I wanted to give a wee shout out to all the fabric fanatics who contribute to the group. All you quilters, embroiderers, weavers, stitchers and fabric hoarders! It's been so long now since I've worked with fabric but I still have a huge amount of admiration for it and all that you do with it. I still have a mini hoarding of my own that I can't seem to let go of or do anything with, but maybe one day I will revisit it!? Until then I do love admiring all your beautiful hoardings and stitchy creations :)
