Halloween Decor – Crafty Ideas – Blogtober 2020

This year, more than in the past I’ve gotten more into Halloween, and Halloween decor. Not that Halloween is something I don’t enjoy, but spending more time indoors; means wanting to make the most of the fun! So unlike any before; I’ve found myself getting more into bringing a little Spooky Season into the house.

Autumn Fruit Picking – Blogtober 2020

This Week #17 – BBQ, Sunshine, Reading and LOVE

Well this has been a week and a bit hasn’t it! To begin: Happy June and Happy Pride Month. Huge love to anyone who needs it right now.

This Week

So, let us begin, with a mere statement. YOU can be WHOEVER you ARE. I will not judge you for that. I will judge you if you are intolerant of others. As far as I am concerned, if you don’t like something, you can be a grown up and self-censor. Walk away. Live and let live.

On with the week….

In the Garden – Upcycled Candle Jars

How to Brighten Up Your Garden When You Rent (Part 3)

When I started on my mission to brighten up the garden last year; I knew I wanted to include handmade and upcycled elements, but this is sometimes easier said than done. This week I share some easy upcycled candle Jars!

In the garden

Because our outside space is somewhat limited; our garden is mostly grass, with some unruly hedges on one side, bordered by high fences. We have essentially a smallish square of decking, where we can actually sit. Therefore anything I do, is mostly to make this small space, more pleasant to sit in!

While I was already working on ideas; I knew I wanted to do something a little different…

In the Garden – Cotton Bunting

How to Brighten Up Your Garden When You Rent (Part 2)

Quick cotton bunting is great for birthdays and other events; or like me, you can just use it to brighten up a dull space…

In the garden

Coming up with ways to brighten up a boring, and rather grey corner of the garden without modifying anything (as we rent), can be a bit tricky, but this is a really quick and easy project, that you can do for all sorts of occasions, or, like me, just for fun!

In the Garden: Bright Planting

How to Brighten Up Your Garden When You Rent (Part 1)

I’m somewhat new to the idea of gardening, so bright planting of any kind is a little scary… But considering we rent our house; there is only so much you can do to create an outdoor space that is really what you want… right?

In the garden

Wrong! Over the last couple of years I have been a mission, to make the garden a fun; welcoming space; we actually want to spend time in. So, join me this month for some fun creative ideas to add some joy to the outside of the house!

12 Days Of Christmas 2019 – Movie Inspired Christmas Cushion

I planned this a little while ago… Well, when I say I planned this project, I knew I wanted to make a Christmas cushion. It was choosing the design that took a little more time!

Christmas 10

Way back when I planned the Halloween Cat Cushion, I also planned this project! (How’s that for organised?!) So when I picked up the plain black cotton cushion cover in Ikea, I also picked up a red one!
