Hello again...

Oh my, it's been a while since I've been on here! Been so busy recently, that when I get home, I don't have the energy to blog but hopefully that will change :)

Had a lovely Christmas with friends and family, they're the best :) A little late, but here is a pic of my lovely tree...I'm about to take it down, boo :(

I have been getting a little crafty (heh) recently and making some of my headbands that I got overly excited about! Here are the two I've made so far:

The top one is my favourite I think :) I have plans for some more vintage 20's flaper inspired ones , musical notes and military (found the cutest rosette the other day!). They only take about 30mins to make and I'm rather in love with them ♥

Went to my first Knitting Club fairly recently and loved it :) Very relaxing and yet ultra quirky and cool! Unfortunately as with many of my projects, I started knitting lots and haven't picked it up in many weeks. However, I need to get my bum in gear, as we're apparently moving onto hats soon and all I've knitted is 6inches of a scarf! A few quiet nights in and I'll get the buzz again :)

Sadly I cannot update with any inspirational pics at the moment, as my right click has broken (beyond annoying!) so I'm going to look out my window again and check for any more snow! I ♥ it!

I'm a little bit obsessed...

I have an ever growing collection and when I see a new one I love, I have trouble resisting! But with my new money saving life, I must...
So my plan is to make them instead! There are lots of beautiful designs out there, and some of them look super easy to make (I hope). It's my new project to keep me occupied, although sometimes my sewing skils leave a lot to be desired!
Here are some pretty ones I like...

I also secretly want a birdcage...shhh

I can't remember where I found this one but it caught my eye immediately, I love the colours. If I have a go at this one though, I think I'll just do the leaves on half of the band.

Elsie has also made some lovely ones recently for RVA...I particularly love the blue felt one. I also envy her ability to wear them over her hair, I never seem to get that technique quite right!

I want to wear headbands every day ♥
Tomorrow I think I'm going to have a hunt for supplies..I'll keep you updated!

December ♥

Well it's been a while! I'm finally moved in and almost finished all my unpacking. Sometimes I love doing it, other times I can't quite bring myself to! The flat's beginning to look rather beautiful though and it feels super cosy here :)

Got a few projects in mind that I want to have a go at...more on that later!

Lots of Christmassy blogs out there at the moment, and it's finally December! I ♥ this month, I revert to my childhood and get ridiculously excited over decorations and The Muppet's Christmas Carol :)

I'm going out looking for my tree this week, I've got my eye on a black one with lots of bright ornaments (to match my flat!). I can't wait to put the fairy lights up!

So here are my Christmas *Loves* this week...

So pretty :)

I'm beyond exhausted so off to bed I go *Zzzz*

I just want to leave you with this little beauty... I have fallen in love ♥
