My wee man Spanner in his favourite spot for snoozing, spring sunshine or not! | Emma Lamb

On any given morning this is where you will find my wee man snoozing and 'sunbathing'. I include the quotes because 'sunbathing' has absolutely nothing to do with how sunny it is.


When I ask him "Would you like to sit in the sun?" he has come to understand that as "Would you like to sleep on my bed for a few hours, temporarily elevating your status in the hierarchy of our pack and giving you the right to give me a foul look when I come back later to ask if you would like to go to the toilet?" The answer is always 'yes' btw, as indicated by an all over body shake.

Yesterday he just got lucky with the spring sunshine!

Next week he goes for a haircut, a perfectly timed spiffy new 'do' for the spring sunshine arriving - those ears have been trailing in too many muddy puddles lately! Then next month he will be nine years old. My little fluffy puppy will be nine years old!? In dog years that's 63!!! He's already starting to get a little greyer around the chops...

But he's happy (especially when snoozing!) and healthy as far as we and his vet can tell - his bladder stone and pancreatitis problems from just over a year ago are under control and his new low fat diet supplemented with white fish and fresh vegetables has done his little body the world of good. Although some days he is adamant that carrot and cucumber pieces are not treats!

happy Friday! + Flow giveaway winners

a little under the weather (my poorly wee man) | Emma Lamb

Hello and happy Friday everyone! Today I'm spending a quiet one with this wee man who isn't feeling so well - thanks to his incredibly sensitive tummy. Between the cuddles and cleaning there's not an awful lot of much else going on today except picking the winners from last week's Flow giveaway...


GIVEAWAY CLOSED | Emma Lamb

Thank you so much for all your entries, it was fun to read all your ideas for using these paper packs and especially sweet of all of you who said you would use some of it to write back to me! To making picking the winners as fair as possible I've used random.org to pick the numbers corresponding to your comments (double entries have been counted as one). So the winners are...

Heather @ Pink Milk - Carla @ craftpatisserie - Claire C - Caroline - Mandy - Lynne - Anna Conway - Dawn Adams - Pauline - Emily Knight

Yay, congratulations ladies! I have a contact email for most of you but if Claire C, Caroline, Dawn Adams and Emily Knight could drop me a quick email at emmallamb(at)gmail(dot)com that would be perfect. Sorry ladies, I'm not a tweeter! I'll be preparing your paper packs over the weekend adding a few extras here and there - paper, fabric, thread - basically any interesting wee bits I have around my studio that I think you might like and will have them ready to send out next week. I'm really looking forward to doing this actually!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Hello my lovelies, I'm back! How are you all!? I haven't been so well recently and have had a whole bunch of life stuff to sort out, to do that I needed to take some time for myself and be offline for a wee while. I know you know how it gets sometimes. Mostly stuff is sorted as I can see a glimmer of light at the end of this long dark tunnel and no matter what, I plan to have normality in it's rightful place by the time the festive break comes around in just a few short weeks! In the meantime though it's time to get back to work and blogging as usual, I have so missed it and you all! Speaking of which I shall be back soon with a lovely 'making everyday beautiful' post, see you then!

studio details : sunny studio days

studio details : sunny studio days | Emma Lamb

Are absolutely the best!

But goodness me, what a difference a couple of days makes! I took these pictures on Tuesday after a week or more of gorgeous spring sunshine here in Edinburgh... and today!? Soggy, cold and grey. Blah! Today though, it is so lovely to re-live these pictures again. Just as Miss Twiggs was talking about yesterday, in her 'Colour Story', it is good to save those snippets of optimism and inspiration to look back on when you need them. Today, I so need them!

studio details : packing station | Emma Lamb

You'll notice too that I have re-shuffled a few things since December (making the most of my internet free time last week). A new layout for the spring and summer months to open up that lovely long back wall I have and make the most of that perfect light. Oh, and a re-jigged packing station too since the last arrangement wasn't working quite so well as it should for me. This is much better, more space and everything I need at hand. Plus a new wee inspiration wall with a few favourite tear sheets and postcards.

Although this is only a test run really since I'm planning a wee spot of decorating in the next week or two. I've come to the decision that it's time for the Farrow & Ball creamy 'Pointing' colour to go and be replaced with a fresh, bright white. I've also got my eye on those dark chocolate brown floor boards and am thinking of a really soft dove grey instead. Once that's done it will be my desk's turn for a makeover, a long time coming I think! Although at the moment I'm not sure if I want white or a soft pastel tone. I'll see how the room is working as a whole once the walls and floorboards have been tackled.

Of course there will always be room for my wee man! Whether it is cosy at my toes under the desk; snuggled up by the radiator on especially cold days or making the most of a shaft of sunlight as above. Do you know he'll be 8yrs old this year!? I can hardly believe it! My little old man is getting on a bit...

my wee man, super cute!

emma lamb

I think it may have just dawned on Spanner that his furry wee face hasn't been featured around here as much as he would like it to. So yesterday and today he has been doing his best to get noticed by turning up the cute... I doubt it was no coincidence that I had my camera in hand just at the right moment!?

hello! / my wee man Spanner | Emma Lamb

This was yesterdays (successful) attempt at getting snapped. While trying to document my progress on a project I'm working on, up popped this cute wee face. Of course once he realised I was in a gullible mood for doing just as he demanded he turned up the cute even more and proceeded to stand there shivering until I enquired... 'Are you cold?' ...to which he responded with yet more violent shivering until I went and found his favourite blanket to wrap him up in. So sweet, yet so cunning!


Then this morning, after I had found another of his blankets and carefully laid it out on my bed for him to sunbathe, he saw another perfect opportunity arise. While busy organising a bunch of laundry I laid my freshly washed crochet blanket over the end of the bed and went off to tidy a few other things. Upon my return I found this...

snoozing / my wee man Spanner | Emma Lamb

His majesty here had noted said freshly washed blanket, smelling fresh and sweet and looking particularly granny chic. He then deemed that his 'dog blanket' was beneath his royal self and snuggled up on my crochet goodness. Do you note how he only used it as his pillow and didn't get right in the middle of it? I think that was quite cunning too... if he was going for optimum cuteness, he certainly achieved it!

Now I'm heading off to make the most out of the rest of today's great light and snap a few more things I want to share with you all over the next few days. Until then I hope you all have a fabulous day!
