Wall Art

I've spent the last hour cutting triangles out of paper,
and sticking them to my wall...

The Miniature Knit Shop

The Miniature Knit Shop are a London based company, specialising in knitted outfits for babies who love to dress up. Really, all babies want to dress up all of the time, it's just that most parents don't seem to realise this... Anyway, these outfits are amazing. I wish I had a lot of money, and knew a lot of babies so that I could purchase everything in this shop.

The best tent ever!

I have just found the most awesome tent ever! Maybe a litttttttle over what i'd be willing to pay for a tent, at £299,  but check this out:

"Officially licensed, this stunning four-man (or lady, natch) tent is a luxe, full-size replica of the iconic 1965 VW Camper Van synonymous with 60s counterculture. It’s so evocative you can almost hear the Mamas and the Papas singing California Dreamin’ every time you feast your eyes on its beautifully breadloaf-ish form."

My Crib

I moved into my new flat just over a month ago now, and although i'm still moving things around and figuring out what should go where, i'm pretty pleased with it! I found the place while casually browsing, and found a flat that said it had a 'balcony bed above the living area' which really intrigued me, so i decided to book a viewing. I wasn't really desperate to move, just ready to fly the nest and looking around at what was out there, so the viewing was more to cure my curiosity more than anything. 

Anyhoo, I saw it and loved it, and now i'm in it! It has a main living room, with a little staircase up to a doublebed-sized area where I sleep! It also has a separate kitchen and bathroom, and a cupboard to keep my ironing board/broom/clothes horse/wellies etc. Here are some photos for you to see:

Cheerful fake flowers that will never die!

This is the view from my flat. A cute little cottage and some houses.

And this is where I sleep!


My rug!

Colourful kitchenwear :)

My kitchen! (i've put polaroids over some of the tiles)

 I'm sure lots of things will move around, and new things will appear. I've not yet got round to putting anything on the walls. I'm not allowed to put nails in, so I have to find things that can be put up with blu-tak!

Currently making a beef and bacon stew that smells goooooood!
So long!

Painting Furniture

A couple of months ago I posted some furniture that I had bought with the dream of doing them up.

Yesterday I painted my chest of drawes, that was £14 from a charity shop.
It took a whole day and included getting told off my the kids next door for being too noisy when I was sanding so that they couldn't hear CBBC, and picking a blue paint that was too blue. I added a tube of black acrylic paint to the blue paint for the top coat, so it was more of a grey-ish blue, rather than a toy-box blue, and this is what I got:

I decided to leave the handles as they were, and sanded the shiny varnish off the legs but kept them wooden.
I'm considering spray painting both the handles and the legs the same colour though, maybe a turquoise/teal. What do you think?

Wait a minute mister postman!

I'm watching 'Have I Got News For You' and they're talking about things going missing in the post, which has reminded me of something I saw a while ago and half considered putting in my blog, and then kind of didn't...

Today I am feeling much more motivated, so here it is:

Artist Harriet Russell created this project to see what lengths our postmen (and women) will go to, to deliver a letter. She concealed the addresses of 130 letters to herself in a series of puzzles and left the people at the post office to figure out where to deliver them to. Amazingly, only 10 failed to get back to her!

Here are some of the letters:

Cool eh?

On another note, please check out my new website; and if you're feeling extra nice today, become a fan of my facebook page;

Brownie Vecta

I recently bought a 1960's Brownie Vecta camera from a carboot and found that I was able to get hold of some old 127 format film for it, so decided to give it a go and see if it still worked. I messed up a bit loading the film, so I think it's my fault that the first few photos didn't turn out, but some of them came out better than I had expected!

The camera has no settings what so ever. No focus or shutter speeds to play around with so it was literally a case of pointing and shooting and hoping for the best. It's crazy how much cameras have come on, with the super digital SLR cameras of today, but I don't think you can beat the simplicity and uncertainty of playing around with an uncomplicated film camera. Here are my results:

Spooky picture of a den in the woods.

I have absolutely no idea what this is.

I bought my film, and got it developed at Plastic Magpie Camera Club.

Hello Blog, long time no see!

My life is pretty busy at the moment. I'm in my last month of college, which means I should be doing lots of work, finishing my final major project and putting together my degree show. Unfortunately I have just had 2 weeks off for Easter, and with the lovely sunny weather we have been having, along side numerous bank holidays, it has been very hard to stay focussed.

Here is a bit of my college work, it is still work in progress, and hopefully it will progress a lot in the next 3 weeks (eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek this is VERY scary!):

My horoscope amused me today by saying "It's in your nature to be creative and perhaps even a bit flighty - leaping from one great idea to the next without sticking to any one goal. This isn't nessisarily your standard way of doing things but with your bigger ideas you tend to get so excited and distracted that you find it hard to focus long enough to make any noteworthy progress".

My current procrastination technique is dreaming of furniture restoration, so much so that I have recently bought 3 pieces of furniture, which I am planning to do up so they look awesome and cool. I am by no means ditching my jewellery dreams, but once my deadline is over, I am looking forward to having a hiatus from it all, and getting stuck into this new hobby. Here are my purchases:

60's dresser and draws. £14 each from a charity shop.
I've not quite decided what i'm doing with these, but I'm fairly certain it will include powder blue paint. Maybe various shades of blue paint. I want to do something a little unusual with these, but i'm not sure what.

Telephone table, £5 from a car boot. This is going to be a project for when I start an upholstery course in September, and will be inspired by this chair:

Must stop procrasta-blogging now and get back to work, so that I can allow myself to do some procrasta-baking later on!
