I am completely in love with my vinyls and record player. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get it out where I am now, but in my new place I'm going to find a special place for it so it no longer gathers dust! I've been collecting records for about 4 years now, usually 7" and any unusual ones I can find. Picture or engraved records are particularly exciting :)
I would like to start a bigger collection of 12" records but storage is a bit of an issue. So I want to get myself one of these beautiful things to keep them safe :)
This picture is just incredible ♥
"If you ever get lonely, just go to the record store and visit your friends."
I haven't been to a record shop in a very long time and I miss it, but I've found a cute one nearby my new home so I will have a wander over as soon as :) Can't wait ♥

Hopefully tomorrow I'll paint my desk ready for next week. Bought some cute little Christmas trees yesterday, they're all bright and sparkly ♥
Here are my fairy light *Loves* for today:
Hope your weekend is sparkly :)

Plus, my fab friends were discussing the lack of mixed tapes these days...I myself am a big lover of a good mixed tape (CD/playlist). Both for other special people and for myself. I quite like designing artwork for the CD's, or sometimes I just write the lyrics of my favourite songs across the CD...it makes me smile :)
So I say bring on the return of the mixed tape! Send the message forth with your favourite tunes :)
On my mixed tape right now would be:
- Show Me What I'm Looking For - Carolina Liar
- Rubber Lover - Marmaduke Duke
- Oh You Pretty Things! - David Bowie
- Tiny Dancer - Elton John
- Louis Louis - Teitur
- Ok It's Alright With Me - Eric Hutchinson
- Stone Cold Sober - Paloma Faith
- Rabbit Heart - Florence and the Machine
- Kiss Me - Sixpence None the Richer
- Nighttiming - Coconut Records
What would be on yours?
I love this! Found it on the V&A website :) I'm desperate to go there one day. I feel I would be in awe and very over excited!
Making a small (and ever increasing) wishlist for my future house. Not my cute (tiny) flat, but the house I grow old in. This, I am hoping wil have more space for me to fill with beautiful things.
First up is of course, the library! Which will look like this and can be found here -->Craft and Creativity...
And a beautiful Smeg fridge. I saw this one in a shop window when driving around in Spain once!

There's also an option that puts a bluish (technical I know) filter over the photo - can sometimes look great, sometimes scary, but fun to experiment!A kite festival that even had sychronised kites! We were impressed :)
At an unexpected gig where we came across Teitur...he stole our hearts. *Loves*
I've also been trying to turn some of my photos into black and white. I really love this look sometimes and want to try a few printed. Here's some inspiration *Loves* I have found along my research way:
I'm still a little tempted to create my comic book coffee table...such a geek! Right bed is calling, night all!
