sorry guys not very flattering pics :/
One of my all time favourite poems on the wall
(not quite sure how the pics fit in with that poem tho??)
some bits and pieces from the antique store next door
started to convince myself i needed a white peacock….
(thats when Thomas said it was time to go …LOL)
was a Frangelico Parfait with salted caramel nuts
(actually called something more eloquent than that but i can't remember )
Some more birthday flowers from my husband :)
On a creative note I hadn't been crocheting or creating much of anything lately but i came across this lovely but simple shell stitch scarf on All About Ami and decided to give it a whirl, real happy with the end result and the fact that even I made them in a short amount of time.
Cream alpaca yarn makes a reappearance
i used two strands together to get the nice chunky look.
I purchased these beautiful button from The Wool Shed, Manuka
The pattern can be found here at All About Ami
I used some leftover yarn which is an acrylic 12 ply in Raspberry for this one
My other creative moment this month was this simple and free
centrepiece for our dining table ….
all i did was use a basket and filled it with little antique terracotta pots, some white ceramic ones and even some shot glasses
and filled them all with random succulents both full plants and cuttings and just fiddled around till it
all fitted and looked visually pleasing. I think it would look even better if i had some sort of moss
or filler to squish in the gaps. As i had all the supplies already it was a cheap and easy way of having a green display all the time
Really pleased with the overall look of the plantings here :)
I am in the middle of a crochet poncho for a special little girl, so i will be sharing that asap!
Also Cooper decided he would be happy to wear a beanie (purely because his best friend had one on the other day and not because he thinks my crocheting is fab… but i will take it! lol)
i have been crazily making him a few beanies in different colours whilst the going is good
will share some pics later in the week :)
Thank you for stopping by
