Sunny September :)


Woke up today and it was beautiful and sunny – a perfect day for a walk around the Swan. It’s real chilly though so big scarf and owl mittens needed – crisp and bright 🙂

It may seem odd to buy summer shoes in these conditions but i saw these bad boys in one of the charity shops so thought why not? They were only £3.50 and they’re real leather an suede – had a laugh with the shop people about buying them when it was so cold outside but i reckon these little guys are gonna be with me for a long time! Mega comfy!

And then a trip to the new Poundland reminded me of some advice from a friend – and i bloody LOVE a Poundland.

I’m trying to save money and Laura Hall was telling me about the way she keeps any £2 coins she gets in a jar and that way you’ve alwys got a bit of extra cash if you need it – but if you leave it for a wile they really add up so got the little Postie money box – plus had two £2 coins in my purse so was able to put some in from the start – plus new diary and some bead pens 🙂

Last night we went to The Kazimier for The Darktown Strutters Ball – it was ace!  Out in the garden – it was cold but they had the bonfires on so warm myslef like a hobo next to them – plus now my scarf smells like bonfire which i really like – it was good to be able to dance to Sidney Bailey’s No Good Punchin Clowns and The Flamin’ Mamies without the usual squeeze in Peter K’s.

I love The Kazimier garden as well – i’m getting some out the big outdoor carnival fairy lights they have for my garden  – add that to the chiminea and we’ve got right cosy night time garden times 🙂




A restorative few days by the seaside, bigger picture, bigger life – thank you from the bottom of my heart Katie xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Let the woolies commence!


As it seems to be getting colder by the day (cue last minute heatwave…) and today was payday, it felt rude not to stock up on some well cosy woolly leggings in preparation for the Winter wrap up.

I LOVE Fairisle patterns SO much it’s ridiculous, actually ridiculous, I would wear and decorate my house with nothing else if i could…but I’ll settle for now for the new addition of these!

I also got these burnt orange stripey ones and two cable knit leggings as well – they have flecks of other colours in them which look really lovely :)PLUS…some fairisle knee socks, fleece lined house socks…and a MEGA cute pair of Owl mittens – and I am set for the cold nights! 🙂

Why have just one…when you can make two!


I’m loving making my brown scarf so much that when i saw this green wool i decided to make another one!

I love the colours in it….but i’m still a bit unsure as to whether it looks a bit too ”Army/Camoflage-y” for my liking – i’m gonna stick with it for a bit though as think i might just need to let it grow a bit more before i can really decide!

Hello world!


The first chill in the night air on Friday can mean only ONE thing…. it’s time to make my Winter scarf!!!
