...a bit of vintage love and my nan's trusty Singer!

...another new season and another new range to be Merch'd and I felt a vintage inspiration vibe....the new Nancybird handbag range channelling nature, vintage and some lovely patterns and textures.  Off I went with my little basket of inspiring goodies to see what I could create.  Firstly I gathered some old crochet doilies from the thrifty shops and sewed them together to make a "curtain"....after a few tweaks, it was up and looking lovely.  I trailed it down to meet a vintage Singer sewing machine so it gives the appearance that it's just been stitched together on the old girl....that old girl very dear to my heart, as it was my nan's and has been passed down to me...spesh :-) To complete my window I then worked in a gorgeous Peacock chair (from my own home!) and vintage crochet tablecloth and finished with some lovely fairy lights along window's edge.  All vintage touches lovingly placed together to highlight the Nancybird new season bags and silk scarves, divine.

..if it's interesting, Pin it!

Okay, i have a new addiction.  It's probably been around for quite some time already, and it seems i'm a latecomer, but i'm totally ADDICTED!  It's a new form of longer am I peering into other's relationship status's, friendships and the like, aka Facebook, now I am peering into other people's inspirations!  SO MUCH MORE FUN!  These, "Pins" in the form of interiors, foods or whatever categories you like. No more of this having to rat out the darn right boring, predictable and whingeing and whining...I now get to choose what I want to view.  Not only that, I can then share it with the world!  ahh!  It's got me seeking out the most inspiring pics I can find and i'm completely loving compiling my own little world via my own "boards".  Know what i'm talking about?  Not discovered it yet?  It's called Pinterest, and I love it!  If you get on, go and follow my boards.  Hopefully I'll inspire you in some way.  Then you can go on and inspire me right back....ahhh.

**don't forget to read the etiquette, this is a NICE place to be, so only respectful comments on peoples pins.  Credit your sources, avoid self's a pretty world, keep it that way :-)
