Pretty Things Thursday

14 Jan

Well, it’s getting late over here and I’m only just getting my Pretty Things Thursday post up. I’ve had a bit of a busy day in terms of being out for a couple of hours and filling out more application forms than I can shake a stick at! First things first though. If you haven’t read my blog post below please go to Janel’s blog, Run With Scissors – I’m one of her featured guest bloggers and have a little giveaway. All you have to do is leave a comment on the post and you’ll be entered! Simples!! Oh, and welcome to all the new readers that have come from her blog!!! I hope you like what you’ve seen!

I will admit I’ve been lagging behind a little bit in finding pretty things. I’ve been busy with my job applications so have been severely limiting my ‘looking at pretty things’ time and using it as a reward for when I get something important done! But I have found a few things that I can share with you today so fear not!!

Cute little squirelly brooches (my woodland animals obsession hasn’t shown any signs of letting up yet!!)

I’ll admit, I’m not a huge Blythe fan but Katie (of Skunkboy Creatures) did a customisation of this one and I love it! Is it strange to want to look like her? Hehe.

Katie also posted this picture on her blog today. It’s one of the cutest pictures I’ve seen in such a long time!! I just want to give the little Scout a hug! He’s such a little dude!! Love it!!

I love the simplicity of the photos Tif takes over at Dottie Angel. And I’m a sucker for the colours she uses and puts together in her crochet and portraits. I’m thinking of making a few garlands myself this year to try and add a bit of simple decoration to my flat.

I am going to make this blog post a short one today as I need to have an early night and be bright and sparky for tomorrow and whatever it brings me (probably more application forms, haha). I’m going to end my evening watching some trashy films (i.e. bad action films not rude ones!!) and carrying on knitting a scarf for my lovely boyfriend. He likes it so far and it should be finished by next week sometime…I’m giving myself a little while longer than most would as I’m still not as quick as seasoned knitters such as my mum and Vivianna!!

Have a great weekend people and I’ll be back on Sunday for the weekly round-up!! And leave some comment love too, I love hearing from my readers!!

Pretty Things Thursday

12 Nov

I’m early with this one today as it’s back to work time for me after two whole weeks of nothing! No-one looks forward to going back to work but we all have to do it!! So, I’m going to kick off straight away as there are a few things I have to do before I go to work and I don’t want to miss this week!! (click on images for credit/links)

1)

This lovely print and notebook are from an artist called Alice Melvin. I found her stuff at the Tate Modern yesterday and subsequently fell in love. Particularly with this…

Yes those are owl hand and finger puppets that you cut out and sew together. I’m determined once payday comes to own this (owl obsession – CHECK! Haha).

Dottie Angel

Dottie Angel Studio

Tif over at Dottie Angel has provided me with hours and hours of inspiration lately. I love just looking though her photos on flickr as they’re just really pretty and she has quite a few good little ideas on there too. I’ve been uhmming and aahing about whether to join her “challenge of an utmost kind” and have decided to take the plunge in the new year. This is the challenge if you also choose to accept…

3)

Pretty colours

I love the colours in this photo. Janel posted it earlier this week and I fell in love. Also, it’s a picture of wool and granny squares. What’s NOT to love? Hehe.

4)

Penguin ornament

I’m majorly in love with everything Katie over at Skunkboy Creatures makes right now. Her ornaments are the cutest things in the world as are the rest of her plushies. I dream of one day having a small (okay, large) collection of her plushies in a corner of my craft room as inspiration to make really cute things!!

So that is all for this week. I could add more but then I’d not have anything left to blog about on Pretty Things Thursday next week!!! Hope everyone has had a good week and is looking forward to fun plans this weekend.
