A little catch up....



How are you?
I hope you all had a lovely fun filled Christmas & a great start to 2017! 
Sorry I haven't been around much lately.
2016 was a year I had so much hope for but in the end
it turned into the strangest year I can remember!
So much has happened recently in this little world of ours,
and if I'm perfectly honest most of which I'd much rather
like to forget about quickly!  Unfortunately I think we won't be able to, as for
years to come the consequences of recent events will come back to haunt us!
Confronted with so much unfathomable ....crazy....stupidity....
hatred & right out lies, I seem to have lost my voice a little!
 I just felt the need to hibernate from the online & news world.
It is so soothing being a little childish occasionally putting my
fingers into my ears saying ....LALALALA.... I cant hear you!
I did start wondering though.... is my silence not a form of acceptance?
And accepting this unhinged crazy I will NEVER!!!
So I have come out of hibernation reminding myself
to focus on the positive, happy, creative & good
in social media and ignore the rest!!!
With that in mind here is a little catch up of some of my
happy, creative & every day pretties from the past few months....


I have been loosing myself
 in books, fluffy lattes, sweet treats & CrEaTiViTy!
These truffles were the tastiest escapism I have ever had.



Playing around with ideas is
a lovely way to block out a world gone barmy
and dull down that feeling of uncertainty
and I have been doing a fair bit of that!

 

Remember this?
My first explorations into crochet hexagons!
I finally finished it in November, making me now
the very proud owner of a beautiful hexagon blanket!!!


I LoVe this blanket so much it really deserves it's very own post
....so watch this space!

Old frames....


 

 ....make wonderful chalkboards.


Me myself & I is a chalkboard addict
....what can I say!?!

 

Chalkboards are so much fun
can you really ever have too many of them!?!



....My Winter mantel.... 

A little tweed & tartan
found it's way into my Christmas creativeness.... 



cards & gift boxes had a very Scottish feel.


Continuing on that very Scottish theme,
I have treated myself to this most beautiful Fair Isle cardigan
in the prettiest shade of yellow wool!
I'm soOo not a yellow clothing girl but I couldn't resist this one.
It reminds me of sunshine on a frosty day.... can't help but LoVe it!


On my house front....
most exiting news, our bathroom renovation is in full swing!


 I have been playing around with ideas, planning & designing
for the past ten months....


....finally now it's all starting to come together,
I'll keep you posted!

I wish you all a wonderful weekend!!!
