52 Weekends No.21 – T-Shirt Yarn Macrame. I’ve been loving the recent trend of hanging house plants and I’m currently refurbing our bathroom with a tropical theme (or Vietnam Flashback as my husband has affectionally named the style) and my plan is to fill it with hanging plants. So this weekend I thought I would try my hand at Macrame for the first time, using t-shirt yarn (as it’s cheap. easy to make and lovely to work with) I had enough left over so I made a mini plant pot holder too. Give it a go… great sense of achievement.
Love is in the air this weekend as Valentines Day approaches, which makes it the perfect weekend to make a Valentines Keepsake for this weeks 52 Weekends Project.
Just before Christmas my wonderful Husband bought me a beautiful bunch of flowers to cheer me up, in the bunch was some Gypsophila sprayed with gold, it was so lovely I decided to pressed it. I knew it would look great framed in my cute little Oliver Bonas kiko frame along with this beautiful quote ‘If I had a flower for every time I thought of you, I could walk in my garden forever.’ The perfect valentines gift.
Happy NON FOOD FRIDAY… not long until publication day for Lagom-Style Accessories by Debbie Von Grabler-Crozier. I loved styling and shooting this book so much, cannot wait to see it in print. Pre-order is currently available from Search Press.
52 weekends is inspiration for craft projects, things to do or places to visit. This week it’s a little bit of everything. To celebrate my Mum’s birthday I’m treating her to a traditional afternoon tea at the Orangery at Blenheim Palace as a surprise. So I designed and made a cute little invite to surprise her with, I used one of my vintage tea cups to draw from and used tissue paper for the pattern, the idea is the tea bag being pulled out of the cup… I’m really pleased with how it turned out and Mum and I had a fabulous day!

This winter weekend I thought it would be nice idea to give the birds a helping hand finding their food with the added bonus of attracting them to my little garden.
So quick and easy to make and takes no time at all. All you’ll need is; bird seed (think my bag cost me a pound at Wilko), block of fat, found pine cones, string and cookie cutters. And simply dunk the pine cones into the melt fat them into the seeds. After that you can mix the fat and seed together and fill cookie cutters with the mix. Chill in the fridge to help it set.
