Pinsperation: Pastels

So, I LOVE Pinterest. For those who haven't heard of it, it's basically a place where you can keep all the pretty, funny, inspiring pictures you see on the internet in one place. So this is a new feature I'm trying on this blog where I show you a few pretty things that I've been pinning recently. 

The following are from my "Inspiration" board.

Couldn’t track down the source. If this is your image, please let me know and I’ll credit you.

I have other boards on Pinterest, but I love my inspiration one - as I use it for motivation when I get home from my day job feeling too tired to do anything creative. I need to have my creative time (including working on my shops) to keep me going and keep me happy.

What inspires you?


Treasury Tuesday: I dream of teal

I just love this colour! It's my favourite colour behind purple :)


You can look at it here.

Do you dream of teal?

Treasury Tuesday: A-owl?

If you get the reference in this title - you are awesome. I told Claire to pick me a theme and she said owls so here you go:


Take a look and leave a comment here

What do you think of owls - cute or creepy?

Buttons!

Don't you just love clearing out? You never know what treasures you'll find that you've forgotten all about. I'm moving house at the end of the month so I've started to go through all my possessions to cut them down a bit.

So imagine my surprise when I find an entire makeup case full of buttons!




I see these beauties being turned into stud earrings and rings!
Watch this space.

Feature Friday: Theia Design

I meant to post this last week but I drove back to my hometown for the jubilee weekend straight after work. And Feature Saturday just doesn't have the same ring to it. 

So say hello to Theia Design. The Berlin based jewellery designer Szilvia is originally from Hungary and loves to experiment with jewellery making. All the pieces in her etsy shop are designed and hand crafted herself. 

I love all the different styles of jewellery there are on offer and the bright happy colours you find. Take a look at my favourite pieces:

So simple and chic!

Anything with buttons is a winner for me.

I love the colours.

Take a look at Theia design here. So many pretty and fun things!
