Captivating Colour

Hello, I'm Abi! As the days are being taken over by a dull, grey sky, I felt the need to share some wonderful images of captivating colours that are sure to brighten up your day! 
Tropical pinks, reds and oranges with deep sea blues and greens always catch my eye and remind me of hot summer days abroad. I love how the use of colour can cause anything to become unique and exciting. The images below from Pinterest show just how the use of colour can change a subject matter, create a certain mood and provoke particular thoughts and feelings.
So next time you go to pull on your black jeans and black jumper, choose a hot pink knit instead with a bright blue scarf and brighten up these grey, wintery days!

Crocheted Art - Kate Jenkins

Happy Monday morning!

Today I'm featuring an amazingly talented crocheter called Kate Jenkins, and I dare you not to be amazed by her work too! The wonderful pieces are created with a quirky and fun humour, sometimes replicating everyday objects with a laugh-out-loud twist. I absolutely love the french fries with their little berets and moustaches and the food just makes me hungry! Find more of her work by clicking here, where you can find the collaborations she has done, alongside prints and cards. Plus, these would make great Christmas presents!

Enjoy! Kelly :)

Little Miss Loolies

Hello! Warming up for the winter is important but you often find yourself looking the same for the whole season. Logically the next year you want to update your wardrobe. But what happens to all those forgotten knits?
I am loving this idea. Little Miss Loolies, created by Sarah Hepworth gives no longer used knitted objects a chance to shine again in a new shape and form. Cushions, covers and flowers, everything  perfectly re knitted becomes a beautiful new accessory. Have a look at their site and enjoy the snuggly fun. Love Moni

The Perfect Mug

Hey Hey, It's Moni again writing the posts for the rest of the week!  I have woken up to freezing and foggy mornings a lot lately. Believe me it's a shock if you're from the tropic like me. I have learned that the perfect antidote for that 'I need to go back to be and stay there all day' feeling, is a lovely cup of                    (fill in the blank). Whether it's tea, coffee or hot chocolate your mug is a precious object during the winter. I have decided then, to go on a hunt for yummy mugs! Big, small, tall or take away here are some of my best finds!  Click on the image if you want to know where they come from.  Have a great day, Love Moni!

Will Vincent

Morning! Happy Monday!

Today I am sharing some fantastic card designs by the talented Will Vincent. Not only do his cards feature stunning illustration but they're also quite witty! I'm currently working on my own card range and I found Vincent's work after looking into my competition. It seems that insulting or funny cards are on trend right now and Vincent's do not dissapoint! My favourite is the getto condiments. Hilarious! Find his website and card range here!

Enjoy! Kelly :)
