Whilst browsing my favourite blogs over breakfast I came across these curiosities by Debra Broz. Aren't they peculiar, but intriguing. I really do quite like them! ♥
I'm currently in France and driving my family mad hunting out local markets, antique fairs and thrift stores. Today was what I had been waiting patiently for all year... The local dimanche flea/boot sale. We were up at the break of dawn, in fact I didn't really sleep due to a mixture of excitement and concern - The forecast for today wasn't too great, but the sun shone and what finds I found! These school chairs were one on my favourites. I so wanted to take them home... ♥
Rabbits are the third most popular pet in the UK and this annual campaign supported by a number of organisations within the rabbit community is dedicated to making the lives of our intelligent, fun, curious yet complex companions better than ever.
For alsorts of info on welfare needs, dietry requirements, behaviour, health and happiness pop over to the RAW website. There's a ton of stuff on there to keep bunny lovers updated on a rabbit's every need.
Here's to happy lapins all round! ♥
So can you imagine the look on my face when Miss Saskia took me to The Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford... I didn't quite know where to start! There was so much (too much in fact) to take in for a first visit there. I was instantly overwhelmed.
For people like you and me it was quite simply heaven on earth. Case upon case filled (jam packed full) of exquisite objects, textiles and curiosities collected by early anthropologists, colonial administrators and explorers of far distant lands in days gone by.
Hawaiian feather cloaks in brilliant shades of red and yellow, a fine group of early masks worn by actors in Japanese Noh dramas, more masks from Africa, Melanesia and North America. Sculpture from all over the world in wood, pottery, metal and stone. Boats ranging from full-sized sailing craft to model canoes, baskets in all possible shapes and sizes, pottery from Africa and the Americas. Costumes, jewellery and body decoration, locks and keys, tools and weapons and musical instruments... And the list could go on!
So these are just a few snaps I took whilst in there as the light was so dim it was pretty tricky to capture a good shot. I didn't want to leave. I hope to visit again soon. Now I'm going to start sketching as I'm full of inspiration and motivation! ♥
With the infamous wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton fast approaching I thought that I too would jump on the royal bandwagon this week and share with you guys a few of my favourite designs created for Friday 29th April 2011!
At first I couldn't quite make my mind up whether I was into the whole lark surrounding the Prince getting hitched, but the build up to the event has been phenomenal and now it's almost here I'm hooked and can't help but want to get involved!
Without a doubt certain people have been pretty busy in preparation for Friday, creating a whole host of witty souvenirs for the happy couple, who I hope have a truly splendid day. So here's to William and Kate... Gather your flags, bunting, tea towels and plates and prepare to street party... I hope that you enjoy my round up of alternative finds in the run up to their big day! ♥
