Wedding Fever

I have a very excited flower-girl-to-be on my hands!
We have had the wonderful news that not only is my brother getting married, but also my partner’s sister as well – the same summer! The grand events may not be taking place until next year, but I am full of wedding fever, especially as one of my oldest friends is tying the knot this July. So all this wedding excitement has inspired me to create a Wedding Ideas page – full of gift recommendations and outfit options. And I will have to be organised as I have offered to make all the flower girl dresses – a total of four! But I cannot forget my son, of course, so will probably have to run up a couple of matching page boy outfits too – phew! Not forgetting the jewellery :-)

In other news there are some delightful door stops now available from Astrid Weigel (and a lovely hand-painted face doll) as well as a few new glam clutches from Dazed Dorothy.

Talented knitwear designer Nicola McGhee is the fine lady behind Mini McGhee - a new label inspired by timeless traditional knit and embroidery textiles. Nicola has created a range of baby blankets in classic baby blue, pink and cream as well as bright stripes - worthy family heirlooms. To compliment the collection she also has a range of soft knitted cushions and drawstring bags made from specially selected vintage fabrics.
New Collections Just In...

Nathalie is the delightful range featuring beautiful hand-drawn prints fusing state-of-the-art technology with traditional craft skills.

The prints are simply charming and have been evolved into belts, cushions and shoulder bags all in tactile satin.

Spring is in the air!

It's still mighty cold but spring is well and truly in the air. I've been loving the sunny days but can't wait until I can cast off the winter woollies - hopefully by June!

I've been a bit quiet on here - naughty girl! Christmas was busy (of course) and January was spent on a secret project and February just flew by. I had my last op in Feb and although it was only a one night stay I ambitiously thought I'd only need two days off work. Well it was a much faster recovery than the big op of 08, just a couple of weeks really :-) So that's me all tidied up now and trying to put the breast cancer behind me. Which is tricky at times, what with my family history of BC and being a mum of two and being a sister of two lovely young ladies...

Well the sunny days have certainly been reflecting my disposition and I am so pleased to be getting my energy levels back. I can't believe that I've just passed 2 years since diagnosis. It's wonderful, but where did those two years go? Recovery, respite, re-cooperation. 2010 is going to be quite a year, I feel like yelling "I'm back!"

Well I am pleased to announce two new fab designers Mini McGhee & Nathalie and new bags from favourite Dazed Dorothy. I'll post pics shortly, but in the mean-time for the latest instant updates best to follow me on Twitter or Facebook. I've just joined Twitter - it's fun!
