I just recently came across the gorgeous Plumo website, filled with loads of lovely items. This online site has everything from fashion to homewares to vintage items. The products come from across the globe and the underlying ethos is fair trade and fair pay for the maker.
Here are some of my favourites:
If you haven’t visited the site before I strongly recommend checking them out! 🙂
Have a lovely day!
I love snow. I think after a lifetime in the sun, the novelty of the soft white flakes drifting downwards has yet to wear off! So with the first snow falling and after a very hectic month away with friends and family over November, I’ve decided my first post now that I’m back seems like a fitting time to show off my new blog header, complete with seasonal snowy images.
(Okay, I had to cheat with some from last year, but you get the idea! 🙂 )
I have to say a big thank you to my sis, Letitia from The White Shed
, for the lovely photo of my linen ruffle cushions (you can buy them at her gorgeous shop over here
). The rest of these are my own photos, and it seemed like it was about time I got some things that I made up there.
Of course, snow goes hand in hand with Christmas, so while the snow is falling outside, I’m going to be snuggled up indoors making some handmade Christmas decorations which I’ll hope to share with you over the next few weeks counting down to the big day!
Have a lovely week!
I think it’s no secret how much I love Cabbages and Roses, so I had to share this gorgeous video of their Autumn/Winter 11 collection. I love the music, the light, the clothes…
Don’t you just love it!?
Have a wonderful Friday!
I’m totally loving all the vintage inspired looks for this season, so I just have to share some of my favourites with you!
Riding boots, floaty florals and baker boy hats at Ralph Lauren
Burnt orange, sheer fabric scarves and beads at Noa Noa
Dark silks from the Noa Noa
autumn 11 collection
Open work crochet scarves and lots of warm woolly layers – Noa Noa
Autumn 11 collection
My budget doesn’t stretch to Ralph Lauren designer wear, but one of the things I love about this look is that the vintage inspired look leaves so much scope for buying, well, vintage. And since I love nothing more than rootling around to find fabulous vintage clothes that I can wear with a modern twist, I’m already working on my list of style s and fabrics to look out for!
Have you found any looks that you’re inspired by with the change of season?
Have a lovely weekend!
Since it’s that time of year when the weather is getting cooler and I’ve started unravelling balls of wool ready to begin making warm scarves, hats and gloves for the cooler months – it seems fitting that this week is the annual Wool Week for 2011.
The Campaign for Wool is an international campaign that was started to promote an awareness of wool and encourage people to use this material over other forms of man-made fibre and wool substitutes.
Wool Week has events throughout the UK and also in Australia and New Zealand and you can find out more about it at the site here
Since I couldn’t let the week go by without finishing at least one wool project, I’ve been looking through some of my favourite patterns on Ravelry and I plan to have some to finished projects to show off this weekend!
Have a wonderful (woolly) week!
