Step by Step: Double Flower Topper

Well, well, it's been a busy few days for me so I haven't had a chance to update you guys on everything I've been up to. I do have a few wedding-related projects in the works that I can share with you in 23 days (!) but not until then (sorry, but I can't be giving everything away before the big day or there'll be no surprises left). I do, however, have this lovely little tutorial for you to brighten up what is a dark and dismal Monday here in Cork.

Okay, so first things first - what will you need?

Love: Teal

I really do love the colour teal, so much so that it's our main wedding colour! There's just something so...calm about it. It reminds me of the deepest parts of the ocean, the great below. I also love, love, love Etsy so I thought I'd put together a collection of gorgeous teal pieces sourced only from Etsy sellers*. The best part? Everything here is under €50, so if you're looking for a lovely Christmas gift, look no further!

Not good news, not bad news...

Just no news.

Had an appointment to find out more about the lovely cyst brothers yesterday. It went a little like this...

DIY Yarn Lightshade

Have you guys discovered Pinterest yet? I'm totally addicted.
Every time I pop on there I find another 50 projects that I just have to do and some of them are so simple. There're a few projects on there that come up time and time again and I keep telling myself that I must get around to soon. The other night Big Guy had a lot of catching up to do on the Sky+ box and I figured that it was as good a time as any for me to get stuck into one of the pins that I see all the time and looks easy-peasy. (It also helps that our current bedroom lightshade is YACK and dirty and seriously needs replacing).

DIY Personalised Shopping Bag

If you're not already carrying your own bags shopping with you then shame on you! Hopefully though this project might help you change your ways. I don't know about you but I always find that the same-ness of the shopping bags bores me. I love it when I'm in the supermarket and I see someone with a bag that's a little bit different. It's kinda like your handbag, or anything else that you wear - your choice of shopping bag can say a lot about you - if you let it!
