Getting Ready for the Sun

When I found this material I knew it would make the most perfect bunting! And now, after a lot of procrastinating, I have finally finished it!!

I can't wait for the (hopefully) balmy summer evenings when I can sit in the garden, surrounded by flickering candles and gently swaying bunting, sipping on pimms from beautiful vintage glasses.

Something Special

I have always had a passion for things in miniature; as a child I was obsessed with doll houses and the act of furnishing them, and now, having grown-up (just a little!!), I love anything tiny and sweet!

The box is lovely anyway - like a hat box for a child - but the contents are even more fabulous!

Nestled in the beautifully crispy tissue is a miniature crown, tiara or fascinator - I'm not quite sure what to call it!

It was like love at first sight, all I needed was a glimpse of the beads and I was in heaven! They have been fastened into perfect little points and are oh so sparkly! There is a tiny piece of net, and a piece of (sadly stretched) elastic so I can actually wear it!
Sadly I don't think I shall be doing this very often, so, for now, it shall sit in its adorable little box until I find someone to walk down the aisle with in a long white dress...

Full of Colour

Catching site of this lovely flower on my bedside table I realised what a perfect photograph it would make!

The angle of the light makes the colour of the camellia just amazing! The slightly unfocused colour reminds me slightly of Andy Warhol's screen prints. I love the bright, focused detail of the stamen in contrast to the dull, slightly blurry, background.
