tea cup candles - the results

Today I finally got hold of my candle making bits, and with absolutly no experience in making candles at all, I jumped straight in :) Unfortunatly being the clumsy lady that I am, I managed to break the glass bottle of cherry frangrance all over the floor :( but on the plus side my kitchen smells lovely now!

I didn't buy enough wax to fill the cups as much as I would have liked, but I'm pleased with how these turned out so am now on the look out for more tea cups and saucers so that I can carry on making some more :D

Also! Yesterday was a super busy day for me, as I have FINALLY got around to finishing off my work space :) It's now all painted, and has had a big move around. I now have a bunch of new shelves, although I have a few left to put up, so once these are finished I will report back with photos!!
Not only this, but I have been finding some stunning bits from charity shops lately. The main things I have been buying have been tea cups (obviously!!) and lovely glass jars!! I found the most amazing floral glass jar yesterday, but I have plans to fill it up for christmas and will get some photos then ;)

Well I have to go away again now! I have a bunch of gift boxes to print on to present some of my bits in over christmas :D Take care all!!

Wow! Today I stumbled across the most amazing illustrator ever! Abigail Brown creates illustrations by using either her STUNNING fabric creations, or illustrating in the same style that she creates these softies! Right now I am planning my self directed project at uni, and am hoping to create a series of 3D dolls :D

Abigail's work is such an inspiration for this, as her style is exactly my cup of tea :D and I intend to keep a close eye on her work from now on!

santa baby!

Well it's nearly christmas :D and what better excuse for a little window shopping??
I have been trawling the web all year, finding sooo many things that I am totally lusting over, and now I have the perfect excuse to show everybody else!!

These oh so stunning, limited edition dorothy shoes at Harrods! I would give my right arm to own these beauties, but they are only available in London and I can't afford to go there :(!!

A gorgeous Jan Constantine Pillow! There are sooo many to choose from!!

This covers two of my christmas wishes!! I want to collect some more lovely tea cups and saucers, but would also love to own the full Cath Kidston spray flower tableware collection too!

A set of GHD hair stylers!! And a little birdy tells me that these are already in my christmas stocking ;) hehe

This ADORABLE tiny polka dot tea set. Designed for kids in a lovely little wicker hamper. I don't care if I am too old for this!!

Some lovely vintage coloured glass jars and bottles :D I already found 2 amazing bottles in a charity shop a few weeks ago, and I think I have picked up a new habit!

And finally! (for now at least :P) I would LOVE anything from Chet and Dot at etsy! I have been following them for years and still need to pick exactly what I want!! Too hard to choose from such cute pieces :P

I will naturally carry on window shopping over the next few weeks running up to christmas! And so I'm sure I'll add more to my list during that time ;) So stick around!!

Happy potatoes!

I saw this advert on TV today and it made me smile :) a tiny little set of hands that cuddle potatoes!!! and a little fairy kiss of seasoning :D xxx

Pointless scribbling

I was very bored on friday and couldn't help but do some bored doodles of cats. Firstly because I am gradually becoming a cat lay :P and secondly because I do intend to create a range of cat themed toys soon! And because I am feeling thoroughly lazy today, I thought I'd share it with all of you :P Although some of the images are missing due to my silly scanner!
