blog loving.

good afternoon lovely ones. i'm counting down the days until my opshop jaunt on saturday...i really cannot wait. i keep having little moments of excitement where i want to squeal (but refrain from it because i already feel crazy enough.) i hope your week is going well. I am loving all of your updates, finds and photos. thank you for all of your gorgeous feedback, you know i adore it. make sure you check in on sunday for my 'coast finds' post (see how sure i am of the loveliness that awaits me!?) i'll be taking some photos of my favourite haunts too so you can experience the deliciousness with me (it's what friends do). back to the point of this post though, i wanted to share a couple of beauties with you that i believe you just must see.

firstly, head over to tea for evie. Bernie is a beautiful mother of evie rose and a fantastic craftswoman who's eye for pretty fabrics rivals mine. With a gorgeous daughter as her constant inspiration, her ability to produce so many beautiful treats leaves me in awe. she's new to the blogging world but a huge favourite on facebook. she says...'i'm a thrift hunter, sewer, crafter, baker, homemaker, wife, mumma and one woman cottage business.' she is also the best friend of my sister kate. make us both warm on the inside by visiting her blog and say hi!

her thrifty finds!

this charming blog cupcake couture is a visual treat with a cherry on top. i'm still eyeballing her old posts from way back because i seriously can't get enough. lovely nadia is based in south africa and has been introduced to the world of frankie/spaces and runs a monthly 'i love market' where she shares her gorgeous handcrafted ribbon brooches and teacup finds. she says 'having eaten a cupcake in each place i travelled to, i found that my heart yearned for their taste, colour and inspiration and so cupcake couture was born. I bake now and again, but what i really do is create one of a kind accessories using vintage buttons and sewing bits and bobs'. a girl after my own heart!

nadia's gorgeous displays.

have a lovely rest of the week. it's sushi and starbucks for me tonight and grabbing the new frankie on my way home. i feel a night snuggled under vintage flannelette coming on! x
