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!
Celebrating the publication of Felt Wonderland by Lisa Olsen from Tigerlily Makes today for this weeks NON FOOD FRIDAY. Very exciting… this book was pure pleasure to style and shoot! Published and available to purchase from Search Press.
52 Weekends is an inspiration for craft projects, places to visits and things to do. This week one of my best friends had a cute little baby girl and called her evelyn, so i decided to make her a little decorative letter as a gift… so this week’s 52 Weekends No.18 is decorative letters.
It’s NON FOOD FRIDAY time to share one of the awesome designs from Stitch Magazine Issue two (out now), this design is by the talented Floss & Mischief.
Here’s a little inspiration for MEAT FREE MONDAY if you’re feeling a little under the weather like I am today.
Too sick to leave the house I raided the fridge for anything to put in a soup. Two small onions, two celery sticks, clove of garlic, a sweet potato and half a savoy cabbage. Boiled them in stock allow with two handfuls of lentils. I made some salt and pepper croutons and picked the coriander from my garden.
It tasted good and the distraction whilst making it made me feel a bit better.
I Don’t usually shoot natural light but today I fancied a change. PS. Don’t forget its National Popcorn Day tomorrow!
Aldi have launched their New Vegan Thai Curry Kits which I’m proud to say I shot for them and I thought on International Hot and Spicy Food day, it would be the best time to share the images.
This Meat Free Monday I’m embracing Blue Monday by getting involved in the new blue food craze using the powerful antioxidant Blue Spirulina (powder). It’s benefits include protein and Vits A, K1, K2 and B12, iron and Manganese, which makes it perfect for creating my vegan (coconut yogurt substitute) mermaid breakfast bowl!
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.
