A change is as good as a rest

A few days ago my mum said to me that ‘a change is as good as a rest’. Do you agree? I thought I would try the theory out on my blog with a brand new layout and colour scheme! What do you think?

Well, I like it 🙂

So, the Posh Yarn update was on Sunday evening…so much gorgeous yarn! Tis was the one I picked…

It’s called ‘Female Of The Species’. I love the vibrant pink tones!

I also have my eye on this…

It’s called ‘Boleyn’ and it can be found at www.violetgreen.co.uk/

 In other knitting news, I have now finished all the pieces of the hoody I am working on and am on to the hood! Then all I have to do is sew it up. I’m so excited about it as it is the biggest thing I have ever knitted so far!

Here’s a quick plug for Lovely Online who make gorgeous jewellery at competitive prices. Here’s an example…

…isn’t it gorgeous!

Lovely, pretty things

Well, I found a lot of lovely things that I’d buy if I was allowed (but I’m not cos I spent too much money on buying things to decorate the living room!). So, I thought I’d share them with you so you can join me in drooling over their loveliness.Look at this gorgeous bangle. It’s on sale at boohoo.com for £5! (Photo is a link straight to it!)

I am loving fairisle patterned knitting right now (probably because I am learning how to knit!) and this hat is beautiful! Quite expensive though at £75 (:-o) but it is pure cashmere. It also has matching gloves ❤

<swoon> This mirror compact is so lovely it almost makes me weep! I love the swallow, I love how it looks patchworked, I love the cute little button! You can get this from dollydagger.co.uk for £6.99 (picture is a link straight to it!)

I love Gorjuss! This Gorjuss bag is…well…gorgeous! I found it at Totally Funky for £24.99.

Last but not least (I could go on and on with this but I wont :-P) is a lovely knitted hen! I found this at the dotcom gift shop (one of my faves). She is £3.95 and isnt she cute!

What lovely things have you spotted??

Lots of Love,

Sparkly loveliness

I’m rather partial to sparkly things so check out these jewels and gems that are all oh-so lovely and gorgeous!


Loving the scroll work…and look at these cocktail rings!



Aren’t they just so cute!! And look at this one (so loving steampunk right now)…

Look at this post on funzug.com for more unusual rings.

Last but not least…cupcakes of course!


Pretty, pretty, pretty 🙂
