I am forever making lists.

This summer, I have the time to create, the time to explore. And so I shall.
My list of demands is long.

  • Re-Kindle my Etsy account and try to get myself established.
  • Oven Mitts
  • Knitted tea cosies 
  • Summer Wreaths
  • Stamps 
  • Cut Paper art
  • Dream Catchers
  • Washer Necklace
  • Tea Cup candles
  • A painting Jewelry case 
  • Use all the plastic bags in this house - plarn or melting. 
Keep your eyes here to see all this spill out!


In the end, it's not the years in your life that count, it's the life in your years.

(Abraham Lincoln)

So I have finished my first year of university, and, my, how the time flies! All those late nights, early mornings, tears, stress and laughs all came down to a crunch and a few deadlines. I've had a great 'year' at uni, and I'm awfully sad to have said goodbye to it.

And now that my life is much emptier, I can move on to make all the things that I've been wanting to all year. I've been shopping at the charity shop a fair bit, and I've managed to pick up these beauties.

A very old, but still beautiful, tin - originally a toffee tin.

A great typewriter.
Apologies to housemates and neighbours for the noise!

And whilst I was tidying my room,
 I made good use of the bird cages!
