How To Tea Stain Clothing

Whilst op-shopping a week or two back, I found this fabulous ‘Talisman‘ folk tunic. I loved it. I tried it on and realised that it was not actually a dress, but more like a long top. It needed something underneath it. Something like a petticoat…. I popped into the ‘vintage’ section of the thrift store and looked through the racks of old undergarments (this sounds worse than it was, it was mainly petticoats and slips and things) but nothing was {Read More}

Stills: A Weekly Collection 2/52

The weeks do tick by quickly don’t they? This week saw us say ‘See You Later’ to Mr Cool’s parents, who have decided to move to Tasmania, they stayed with us for the nine days before they left.

Stills – A Weekly Collection – The Meadow Part 1

We have recently moved into a new (for us) house. We call it the ‘Treehouse.’ It is set up on the side of a mountain and is surrounded by trees.

Home: Coat Hanger Wall Art

I have been looking for ways to show my creativity, I decided that my HOUSE was the perfect canvas to work on. We had a clock on a small wall in our dining room, the clock (which was a wedding gift) was no longer fixable, so we decided to get rid of it. I wanted to something cute and functional and a bit off beat to fill the space. I saw some coat hangers while doing the groceries. I loved {Read More}
